This is the year we, the fans, stand divided. We watched in Batman v Superman as man fought god with a catastrophic result. Now we mush choose once again. However, this time we won't only witness heroes fighting heroes but friends fighting fiends. With [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) only a couple of weeks away we the fans must choose, will we stand with the First Avenger or with the Iron-plated genius?
I've already brought forth the line-up for Team Iron Man and so, without further ado, I present to you the superheroes that that stand alongside the protagonist of this film, Team Captain America. Below, you'll find everything you need to know about this nobel and just soldier and his fellow veterans.
- Name: Captain America
- Secret Identity: Steve Rogers
- Skills: Created to become America's ultimate one-man, army, Captain America is highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat and is believed to be the pannacle of physical human perfection
- Super facts: Captain America is the first Avenger, the first superpower mortal to ever be created. He was also the reason for the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D and the basis of the Avengers' Initiative. Cap is a man who has had the responsibility of leadership thrust upon him. It should come as no surprise, then, that Iron Man and Cap are always butting heads. But how will Cap handle fighting off his friends in the upcoming battle?
- Name: Winter Soldier
- Secret Identity: James Buchanan Barnes
- Skills: Highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat and an expert marksman.
- Super facts: Bucky was Steve Roger's best friend and fellow war veteran. But after decades of being believed to be dead and having his mind messed with by the bad guys, whose side is the Winter Soldier really on?
- Name: War Falcon
- Secret Identity: Thomas "Sam" Wilson
- Skills: Skilled in hand-to-hand aerobic combat and capable of flight by making use of high-tech robotic wings.
- Super facts: Having made his first appearance in Captain America: Winter Soldier, War Falcon has only recently joined the Avengers Initiative. Being a war veteran himself, he is, quite literally, brothers-in-arms with the legendary Captain America.
- Name: Hawkeye
- Secret Identity: Clint Barton
- Skills: World class archer with killer aim.
- Super facts: Being one of the original Avengers, Hawkeye has quite an arsenal of experience under his belt. He was also the one responsible for bringing Black Widow to the light side all those years ago- it will be quite interesting to watch how these old friends will handle being on separate sides of this war and what could have triggered their separation.
- Name: Scarlet Witch
- Secret Identity: Wanda Maximoff
- Skills: Mystic Powers that can whack quite a punch.
- Super facts: Initially trained by HYDRA, Wanda and her now-deceased brother fought the Avengers and gave them quite a run for their money. This will be the first time Scarlet Witch will be making her appearance as one of the good guys so the transaction may be quite entertaining.
- Name: Ant-Man
- Secret Identity: Scott Lang
- Skills: Super powered miniaturising suit and insect telekinesis.
- Super facts: Having recently resigned from his life of crime, Scott Lang is the newest addition to Captan America's team. Having joined the Avengers Initiative after infiltrating their base, it'd be understandable if there might be a bit of friction within the team.
In a couple of weeks we will not simply watch some frivolous battle of pride. We will watch brothers battle and, possibly, fall at the hands of each other. We will watch how Earth's mightiest warriors, who had once used their amazing skill and wit to save the world, use this same skill to destroy each other.
