It's another huge Marvel event in the comics! This is most likely inspired by the same event ten years ago and it's a nice way to garner publicity from [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409). The first series was written by Mark Millar and drawn by Steve McNiven.

This January saw Marvel's Secret Wars story come to an end and it definitively had an impact. Like my boy, Miles Morales, he's now in the main universe. Dr. Doom was the King of Battleworld and it was a different way to do a crossover. I am curious about Spider-Man's role in the upcoming clash -- Brian Micheal Bendis and David Marquez had this to say about the upcoming Civil War:

“A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy. This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.”

Yes, I know, this sounds like that awesome movie from Spielberg called Minority Report. And for all of those people that are huge readers (I am too), it was a story written by Phillip K. Dick .

The gist of the new story, Iron Man and Captain Marvel are at odds --- because a new Inhuman can see the future. Iron Man believes that you cannot lock someone up for a crime they didn't commit yet. Captain Marvel believes that we need to change the events before the crime is committed.

This is an awesome topic to debate. You need to check these promos out of our favorite heroes choosing a side. Ms. Marvel you're breaking my heart. As you can see, people that are on Team Carol, they say change the future. And those people on Team Stark, they say protect the future. I am not sure if these are just promos, or they're showing what sides they pick. But they're incredible and it would be a shame not to show you!

This is a fascinating topic; because I really have no clue what side I would choose. The rational side of me, believes that it's crazy to lock someone up for something that they haven't done yet. If someone locked me up -- and they tell me -- because I was going to do something really heinous to someone, I would be very, very, upset. At the same time, if there's a chance to protect people from certain deaths, wouldn't you want to at least try. I cannot wait to read this upcoming Civil War. What hero would you choose -- Captain Marvel or Iron Man?
