...age superheroes called the New Warriors who have their own reality TV show. The show's ratings are falling. To try to boost the ratings these amateur superheroes go after a group of super-villains who are on the run, and way out of their league. One villain, Nitro, is cornered by the New Warriors in a suburb in Connecticut and winds up setting off a nuclear explosion that takes out half the town including a school full of children. America is devastated by this attack that is on par with the likes of 9/11. Several superheroes rally together in Connecticut to try to rescue anyone who is still alive in the damage and debris. It is this event that causes the nation to implement the Superhuman Registration Act, which requires all superheroes to register their secret identities with the government in order to keep them accountable. Iron Man is completely for this new law, while Captain America isn't. The new law splits the heroes down the middle and the fight begins. So that's the way the Civil War starts, but how can we make it have more of an emotional strain for the film version which is much less developed? Check this out. Remember Harley from Iron Man 3? The 10-year-old kid whose garage Tony Stark hides out in? Imagine if Marvel still went with the big explosion with the school and the town. What if Harley was a student at that school? What if he died in the explosion? He meant a lot to Tony. Someone he cares about dying in such a meaningless way, Tony would definitely feel led to strongly support the Superhuman Registration Act. OR.... If you don't like that, try this one. Harley saw Tony as a role model. At the end of Iron Man 3, Tony sends him a bunch of cool tech. What if Harley tried to be like Iron Man? Suppose he became one of the New Warriors, and he was responsible for the explosion? What are your thoughts? (Personally I like the first scenario.)
