> I got really excited about Civil War because I thought we'd get a good, deep discussion about the role of superheroes in the world, law vs vigilantisim, all that stuff. Civil War was just a pointless slug fest, but i felt after wards, maybe now we'll get that discussion with the initiative.

I know I also view civil war as more of a discussion about how many civil rights are you willing to give up for the illusion of safety? and in all honesty the only people I actually respected after civil war were:

The X-MEN- They viewed this as a war of man and something they did not need to bother with and I agree

Wolverine and Namor- They went after the REAL badguys of civil war

Thing- No one got hurt or killed by things actions

Finally the Runaways- They stayed out of a fight since they just wanted to live their lives and never be bothered by anyone.

So did the Inhumans, Eternals, Deviants, and 198.

And was civil enough to play poker in the end.

L.A is a far cry from New York- it would be interesting to see them now that they are in NY.
