5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved It 7 Mar 2009
By Caleb Williams VINE VOICE
Now I've been looking at getting into graphic novels for a long time and I have always been very interested in the Marvel Universe and the prospect of a civil war as depicted in this book. Although I've never read a single comic book in my life, I've always been aware of the great superheroes and their particular backgrounds. Apart from the odd one or two however, seriously, who the hell are Goliath and Wasp? This being my first graphic novel and with me generally being a comic book snob and turning my nose up at any comic book or graphic novel, I was genuinely surprised by how much I was taken in by the story and enjoyed the artwork.

The story starts off with young aspiring superheroes doing a bit of crime fighting for a reality TV show, but something goes wrong and one of the villains attacked is a living bomb and explodes killing a lot of civilians and destroying a hell of a lot of land and homes. This is the fuse that sets off the bomb (metaphorically speaking) which is the mass appeal for a Superhero Registration Act. This ensures that all those who are born with or gain super powers are to register to and work for the government as a superhero police force, or risk being locked away for vigilantism or being a danger to the public if they refuse to register.

Reed Richards and Iron Man are in favour of the act and lead their army in finding and capturing the opposition which is led by Captain America, who simply wants to retain his freedom. The side of Iron man argues that working for the government as part of a policing force would place superhero teams distributed across all states, creating a balanced super protection force.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's side are you on? 10 Mar 2008
When I first heard about this book, I was very excited and after reading the first issue I wanted more. Its one of the best story lines I've ever read. Not only is the story awesome, but the artwork is amazing. Some of the fight scenes were amazing aswell, all your favourite heroes beating the living daylight out of each other.
I was so excited reading this, I really wanted one team to win. It wasn't like reading a normal story with heroes and villans, it was pretty much just heroes.
This was another great job done by the writer Mark Millar.
I recommend this to anyone who loves superheroes, reads comics or is just getting into comics. I'd also recommend this to anyone who loves a good story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great story but not as a stand alone 4 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A fantastic story arc that culminates in some of the biggest upheaval the Marvel universe has seen. Betrayal, changing aliegances and some epic battles showcase the best of a crossover story. The art work is excellent and showcases the darker and more sinister sides of many of the characters.
This is not one I would reccomend for a first foray into the world of Marvel or comics as it doesn't really give any knowledge of the rich back story of the characters but for a fan of comics it is a great coffee table book and a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not amazing. 3 July 2007
An act is passed by the American Government intended to force all heroes into disclosing their secret identities to the Government as well as becoming their Agents.This divides the hero community down the middle and ultimately leads to a "war" between those who oppose the act and those that are in favour of the act.

The story is well told and the artwork is of a high standard. However aspects of the story left me slightly disapointed. I wasn't keen on some of the so called heroes being so cruel to former allies and teammates. Conversely the fight scenes are excellent and it is fascinating seeing the heroes fall out with eachother.

Generally a really good read but not as good as it could have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but lacks a certain je ne sais que 1 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is good but it just didn't light me afire (metaphorically of course). The story is that of Watchmen with Marvel heroes in their place and slightly more of a french resistance feel. It never leaves the shadow of Watchmen despite the characters being well written and fully fleshed out. I read this weeks ago and haven't come back to get more of the volumes in this event. It isn't bad, it just hasn't captured me.

4.0 out of 5 stars A heroes tale for our age 27 Jan 2008
By Zachary
First of all, I'm not a huge Marvel Universe fan, but I was intrigued by this and could not put it down once I had started.
This is a fantastic story, politically relevant, daring, not afraid of it's past and beautifully put together.
In this post 9/11 age, the thought of people putting underpants over their trousers and saving the world has seemed rather...pathetic. But, like Batman Begins, we are offered something very different. Superheroes with a conscience, a political ideal and most importantly, with human flaws.
This was most telling in one of many of Tony Strak's speeches when trying to convince his band of Avengers that registering was the future, he continually used the past and referred to it as a different age. We know this in reality, the 1940's is a long time ago, but in the world of popular comics things have not changed so drastically until this publication. This gave us real tragedy, war, politics and hate.
I loved what this story was talking about, I was gripped by the idea of registration epsecially when it is so relevant in the UK with ID cards. The Big Brother state moving into the Marvel universe suddenly makes these characters real and the producers of this work need congratulating on a bold and gripping novel.
More of the same please.
