Some argue that art is about taking sides. That it is about having a point of view.

So, it is slightly disappointing when the artist collective known as the Poster Posse finished its tribute to the upcoming Russo Brothers' Captain America: Civil War that the final tally proved the Posse a resolutely apolitical, non-committed bunch on the issue of Marvel superheroes beating each other senseless. Of the 14 artists represented nine refused to show a distinct allegiance between team Captain America and team Iron Man. The fence sitters: Berkay Daglar, Chris Malbon, Daniel Nash, Kaz Oomori, Matt Needle, Rich Davies, Sharm Murugiah, Thomas Walker, The Dark Inker and Thomas Walker.

Those of the Posse that choose a distinct side gave team Rogers a one person victory. The proudly Captain Americans: Rico Jr. Creation, Simon Delart and Vincent Aseo.

The lone Starkian supporters: Ben Mcleod and Orlando Arocena.

I chalk up all the fence sitting to comic book artists not willing to upset the fan base.

Mcleod is a craftsman more than an artist. His art is perfectly pleasing without being overly diverting.

Berkay Daglar

I love how Daglar gives a European proletarian art sense to the Stark-Rogers struggle, particularly the mechanical and human muscularity on display. It is essentially the battle between the working factory man and the machine built to replace him on the line.

Chris Malbon

Malbon's use of pop blues, reds and oranges make this poster a little too bold on the eye. The characters almost get lost in the swirl of opulent colors.

Daniel Nash

Really nice piece by Nash that enlarges the struggle to one that transforms the natural landscape.

Oomori is a master of displaying cool and hot balances. The two posters put together are a perfect encapsulation of his color theme.

Needle's eye for the perfect mechanical and geometric structures to frame his composition make these portraits interesting whirligigs.

Mahle is another artist that knows how to do the hot and cool color theme well.

Orlando Arocena

The lightning geometry makes this poster even more skull crushing awesome. Arocena has found the perfect comic book correlation to Edvard Munch's The Scream.

Rich Davies

Davies gets everyone in and on the right side. This poster is good enough to replace some of the Civil War studio posters released.

I love the Spider-Man web tribute that does double duty in the first Rico Jr. poster and the death reference in the second.

Sharm Murugiah

Murugiah's sly joke here is to make the whole Civil War beef resemble a confused costume crowd trying to find its way at a Coachella concert.

Simon Delart

More awesome triangular fun from the trigonometric inspired Delart.

The Dark Inker

I love how the Dark Inker breaks down everything to its gears and battle plan.

With the Captain's shield becoming a ring, Walker turns this poster into the UCF version of Civil War.

Vincent Aseo

I love the little touch Aseo does to the shield by turning Iron Man's reflection into a Jason and Medusa reference.
