Hello citizens! This is your Captain speaking.

As you may know, there's a great outdoor fight brewing between myself and Tony Stark. Now, I don't want to get into the specifics, but suffice it to say that he is wrong, and, in addition, a dick.

So please, pull up a seat and watch me and my friends beat up him and his friends here in a few weeks! It should be a good time.

And there are other movies coming up this year! I'm legally obligated not to know anything about it, but those X-Men sure seem like they're in for a rough one this summer. That guy's Poe Dameron!

And then there's Doctor Strange, a wizard who I'll probably be hanging out with soon! He's probably pretty cool, and definitely doesn't look like a human shaped candle that is half melted.

And on the other side of the world, there's Suicide Squad? Which actually looks pretty good, all things considered!

Oh yeah and I guess if you don't want to gaze upon Chris Evan's glorious visage, there's some weird tiny books with pictures for you to read too. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, you can put the Avengers back in high school with the power of free to play mobile gaming! Isn't technology wacky?

    Tried to convince my fiancé to go to a Captain America marathon at the local cinema this Thursday with Civil War being shown just after midnight.

    I failed.

    very disappointed the thread title is referencing a song just called "war" and not the guns n roses song actually called "civil war"

    The number of harley quinns per capita is set to increase dramatically. Actually I guess it would be comedically.

    A magician gives you a ring that, when worn, will let you see the world as it truly is.
    However, the ring will never leave your finger, and you will be unable to ever describe to another living person what you see.

    I just saw a new trailer for Apocalypse after Raw

    It's uh

    I don't know, I don't think I get excited for X-Men movies anymore, they are just there and then I see them and they are good or they are bad

    At the very least it's very colorful, love that about it

    Everybody is going to be friends again eventually anyway, so the whole "War" is pretty pointless.

    Has Steve EVER brought up the death of Goliath to Tony in the past ten years of comics? Did Thor give a flying fuck about his clone after he returned and beat up Tony?

    Steve got killed and came back.

    Nothing matter, nobody is here for a reason, let's just watch a fun movie.

    thor beat up tony specifically because he made a clone of him

    and then didn't pursue the matter further because everyone thought hercules had killed it at the end of the series

    That's my point. The only thing to come out of that is Tony got beat up once and nobody spoke of it again.

    Frankly, everyone should be much more pissed at Reed for mathematically proving that registration is correct, but forgetting to carry the Skrull.

    well, tony also had his memory wiped pretty soon afterwards and essentially forgot about all the shit he did during civil war and immediately after and then seemed to work towards making amends once he read about it

    and they did address bill foster's death in introducing his nephew and essentially creating a new villain

    like, just because steve didn't come back and immediately have a talk with tony doesn't mean this shit wasn't addressed in one way or another

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    Everybody seems to forget that the Tony that has been running around ever since Siege is not the same Tony from Civil War. That Tony effectively killed himself and was replaced with pre-Civil War Tony.

    Doesn't the new civil war comic actually have Steve with a line about how he died last time? Or was that a fan edit?

    Also in the MCU version, I can think of at least one person who is probably, with legitimate reason, remain pretty pissed about the whole thing for quite a long time.

    e:
    The Tony thing was basically, if I remember correctly, he had protections built into his brain because of all the registration and secret info he had memorized, than essentially brain deathed him when he triggered it to delete all the info. Then there was some bullshit magiscience (A backup drive, Thor's lightning, and Stranges magic) or something that they were able to use to restart his mind.

    This is seperate from the time they tried to reset his brain back to the AI version backup of himself during inversion.

    Tony got his Civil War era brain erased.

    "Thor clone? What? I have no memory of this event."

    "Goliath? I thought he just retired."

    "My new movie is very popular. I think it's for the best we all pretend this 'Civil War' never happened."

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    To be fair, Post-Brain Wipe Tony says he would have made the exact same decisions given the circumstances

    Which is balanced out by The Confession, still the best thing to come out of Civil War, where Tony admits to Steve's corpse that it wasn't worth it in the end.
