The landscape of the Marvel Universe is changing, and it's time to decide: Whose side are you on? A conflict has been brewing, threatening to pit friend against friend, brother against brother--and all it will take is a single misstep to cost thousands their lives and ignite the fuse! In the wake of a tragedy, Capitol Hill proposes the Superhuman Registration Act, requiring all costumed heroes to unmask themselves before the government. Divided, the nation's greatest champions must each decide how to react--a decision that will alter the course of their lives forever! As the war claims its first victims, no one is safe as teams, friendships and families begin to fall apart. While Captain America rejects the government's Superhuman Registration Act and goes underground, Iron Man steps up to spearhead the registration effort--and Marvel's heroes split right down the middle! The shocking crossover that rewrites the rules, Civil War stars Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the entirety of the Marvel pantheon! -- adapted from dust jacket flap and back.
