The Amazing Spider-Man: Civil War

The Amazing Spider-Man: Civil WarThe central scene that the entire comic event sets up, and is worth an entire comic event to set up.Captain America I remember the first time I really understood what it was to be an American What it was to be a patriot I was just a kidI was reading Mark Twain and he wrote something that struck me right down to many core Something so powerful that it changed my life I memorized it so I could repeat it across the years He wrote, In a republic, who is the country Is the government which The central scene that the entire comic event sets up, and is worth an entire comic event to set up.Captain America I remember the first time I really understood what it was to be an American What it was to be a patriot I was just a kidI was reading Mark Twain and he wrote something that struck me right down to many core Something so powerful that it changed my life I memorized it so I could repeat it across the years He wrote, In a republic, who is the country Is the government which is for the moment in the saddle Why, the government is merely a temporary servant it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn t It s function is to obey orders, not originate them Who, then, is the country Is it the newspaper Is it the Pulpit Why these are mere parts of the country, not the whole of it they have not command they have only their little share in the command In a monarchy the king and this family are the country In a republic, it is the common voice of the people Each of you, for himself, by himself, and on his own responsibility, must speak It is a solemn and weighty responsibility, and not lightly to be flung aside at the bullying of pulpit, press, government, or the empty catchphrases of politicians Each must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, and which course is patriotic and which isn t You cannot shirk this and be a man To decide it against your convictions is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may If you alone of all the nation shall decide one way, and that way be the right way according to your convictions of the right, you have done your duty by yourself and by your country Hold up your head, you have nothing to be ashamed of Doesn t matter what the press says Doesn t matter what the politicians or the mobs say Doesn t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right This nation was founded on one principle above all else the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences When the mob hand the press and the whole world tell you to move, you job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of Truth, and tell the whole world No, you move Spider Man Can I like carry your books to school For the rest of my life A good book My first Civil War which I loved tie in Wasn t quite as impartial as the original book in the Iron Man vs Cap fight but a solid story. During the Civil War event Spider Man was ruthlessly manipulated by someone into deciding to reveal his secret identity as Peter Parker with devastating consequences Am I talking about Tony Stark or the writers and editors of Marvel Because its questionable as to who screwed poor Spidey overby the end of it all.In a way the entire Civil War was a fight for the soul of Spider Man with him caught between two men he greatly respects Tony had been his friend and boss right before things During the Civil War event Spider Man was ruthlessly manipulated by someone into deciding to reveal his secret identity as Peter Parker with devastating consequences Am I talking about Tony Stark or the writers and editors of Marvel Because it s questionable as to who screwed poor Spidey overby the end of it all.In a way the entire Civil War was a fight for the soul of Spider Man with him caught between two men he greatly respects Tony had been his friend and boss right before things went sideways, and he d been warning Peter for some time about how increasing public sentiment against super powered people was turning into a real political problem Captain America is the guy that almost every Marvel superhero admires and looks to for guidance when things get rough, and Spidey is no exception so it was inevitable that he d start questioning what Tony was doing when Cap stood against him One of the things I did like about Civil War is the way it pointed out that a billionaire like Tony Stark didn t get rich by just letting things happen, he makes things happen Tony shows a kind of ruthless brilliance in politics and public relations as part of his support of the Superhero Registration Act Nowhere was thatapparent than in the way that he used Spidey here to further his own cause Even though Tony obviously likes Peter Parker a great deal he doesn t hesitate to switch from the carrot to a pretty damn big stick to convince Peter that he needs to publically tell people he s Spider Man That stuff all plays out pretty well, and I have to admit that I was very excited back in the day about the idea that Peter Parker revealed he was Spider Man He d been doing the whole secret identity thing for about 40 years at that point, and I thought it was a really bold and interesting way to do something new and different with Peter dealing with the world knowing who he really was Plus, I didn t think there was any way that Marvel would be able to walk that one back without a giant retcon to their entire universe Which just goes to show you that you should never underestimate the lengths a major comic publisher will go to in order to get a character back to what they consider a baseline status.So that s my biggest disappointment with this whole event Despite being an interesting conflict between Iron Man, Cap, and Spider Man that opened up potential new story avenues to explore, all that was instantly jettisoned in order to not just revert things back to normal but to also wipe out about 20 years worth of Spidey continuity in the process Like most crossovers it didn t offer real change but only the illusion of change, and that s the real pity about the Spider Man story angle in Civil War Of all the characters Marvel Comics have in their stable, Spider Man epitomized the quintessential Marvel superhero Hes neither the strongest nor the smartest, but he has feet of clay that always crumbled beneath him Most of it was his own doing, since hes never been known to make the smartest choices That was what made him relatable to readers, because it made him human.In Civil War, he made a lot of decision that he soon regret, betraying Captain America and Iron Man and revealing his Of all the characters Marvel Comics have in their stable, Spider Man epitomized the quintessential Marvel superhero He s neither the strongest nor the smartest, but he has feet of clay that always crumbled beneath him Most of it was his own doing, since he s never been known to make the smartest choices That was what made him relatable to readers, because it made him human.In Civil War, he made a lot of decision that he soon regret, betraying Captain America and Iron Man and revealing his civilian identity As a result, he lost the people that came to define him through the years This being comics, that was soon erased in Brand New Day, but J.M Stracyznski made the best out of the opportunity to tell new stories that were markedly different from his past continuity.This collection collected the issues that tied in to Civil War and was one of the best stories that weren t done in the main title It fleshed out Spider Man s involvement and chronicled the consequences that arose from his participation in that affair It s an exception to my personal rule that the essential tie in stories were those done by the writer of the main miniseries It made the event meaningful by affecting the character in its own ongoing series and it supporting cast that is of course until the next relaunch I wonder if any of them realize we re not really fighting for ourselves, for our turf, for the right to wear a mask We re fighting for them For our ability to be there, without condition, when the darkness comes I wonder if any of them realize we re not really fighting for ourselves, for our turf, for the right to wear a mask We re fighting for them For our ability to be there, without condition, when the darkness comes I m reading this again years after the event and The Civil War Event I d seen Spidey pop up in the main CW series with that new costume and strangely conformist attitude and I was dying to figure out what the hell But somehow never did go back to the archives and see how this fit into the overall context of the Spidey verse guess the library just didn t stock Spider man like they did the rest of the titles.I used to think JMS was a god among writers He may still be, elsewhere, but here I m reading this again years after the event

among writers He may still be, elsewhere, but here he s justverbose And not apprised of a Spidey level sense of humour Worse, the maudlin melodramatic shit that MJ and Aunt May sling at Pater as he decides whether to unmask when I read this the first time, many years ago, I thought it was heartfelt and real Now it comes off as so artificial, juvenile and idealised that I can t hardly keep dinner down.The subsequent speechifying between Peter and Tony or Peter and Reed islike an essay I wrote in high school I think these point counterpoint things would ve worked better Well, maybe there s no way to present them TV talking heads, emails on screen, essays printed at beginning or end of issue that would ve worked well I guess they had to be said to make CW havegravitas but they sure grind the momentum to a screeching halt.Somehow though, when Peter is monologuing first to the Senate, and then on TV, it doesn t seem quite so bad It s still slow and verbose, but at least they feel heartfelt and that at least feels like Peter Parker I also gotta say I was sorry the new costume didn t stick around feltlike a MacGuffin than an actual contribution to the story Not a big fan of the art faces look weird, and the scenes are rather plain It would be awesome to bring in someone else to tart the panels up Definitely one of the best titles from the Civil War event.Peter Parker, usually the Marvel superhero that is responsible for breaking the tension in serious situations with inappropriate jokes and insults, turns inward and self reflective as he comes to terms with the worst decision he has ever made This volume, which elaborates on a couple of the most pivotal plot points of Civil War, gets pretty serious for a Spidey comic as Peter is forced to question a lot of truths and relationships Definitely one of the best titles from the Civil War event.Peter Parker, usually the Marvel superhero that is responsible for breaking the tension in serious situations with

points of Civil War, gets pretty serious for a Spidey comic as Peter is forced to question a lot of truths and relationships that he has come to depend upon.As always the writers of this story rely a little too heavily on the With great power comes great responsibility schtick But this time around it seems to have a littleweight an meaning to it Peter seems to grow up a lot in this story, or at least he seems to shed some innocence You get a sense that there is truly a lot at stake in this war and through Peter s eyes, we see the stakes arehuman than superhuman.Great stuff A must read.4.5 5 Very good art Pretty good writing, by comic book standards It was annoying that several parts of the story are left out, with footnotes telling you to find the missing pieces in other comics I liked the wide cast of characters many Marvel superheroes and some supervillains make appearances The story deals with weighty ethical matters of law and civil obedience, and the tradeoffs involved in security and privacy.I haven t read the comics leading up to this, so it s hard to judge it out of Very good art Pretty good writing, by comic book standards It was annoying that several parts of the

Now I want to go back and read some of the comics that led up to Civil War view spoiler I didn t like that Parker unmasks himself to the world I much prefer Parker s original red and blue suit to the Iron Spider suit from Stark I enjoyed the conversations sometimes jovial, sometimes heated between Parker and Stark hide spoiler The Marvel universe has given us the most iconic superheroes out there, in my humble opinion sorry DC fans The Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Captain America, Iron Man, the X men, and Daredevil are just a few who fit into that category However, I doubt that anyone can argue with the fact that at the head of the pack is every one s favorite wall crawler There is a reason for that He s the best Anyone who is a fan of Peter Parker not talking about the fans of just the movies here The Marvel universe has given us the most iconic superheroes out there, in my humble opinion sorry DC fans The Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Captain America, Iron Man, the

the fence in probably one of the best story lines in recent Marvel history again, in my opinion It shows how quickly the black and white lines of right and wrong blur into grey And what do you do when your heart tells you you re on the wrong side of those lines Great art, even better story Don t miss this one Life Couldn T Be Complicated Or Dangerous For Peter Parker After Rushing To The Aftermath
