The story is about two superheroes, Iron Man, Tony Stark, and Captain America, Steve Rogers. Tony who wants government support and and a stabilized ID documentation and Steve who wants full control of their personal status. They each have a team of superheroes on their side, some end up betraying their own side, others end up being killed. What I loved about this book is when you take away the superhero part of it, it's a political story. As far as the writing goes, Stuart Moore writes the characters and sticks to their mannerisms the way Marvel has built them for the past few years. I don’t know how to review this book without giving much away but I would recommend it if you’re a fan of the Marvel series, especially with so many movies and tv shows lined up over the next year and Netflix having a contract with Marvel. There are appearances by familiar characters like Daredevil and Spiderman, but this is a great book to introduce the reader to unknown characters. The action is detailed, it reminds me of watching a Marvel movie and there was no gore or anything too horrific, but mentions of blood from fighting and death scenes.
I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a movie to come out in a long time (yep, even compared to Star Wars, I’m more excited for this), and I know Marvel Cinematic Universe has their own story changed around but I can’t wait to see the comparisons. Even if you’re not a huge reader of the comics, this is a great start to the Marvel world. Buy it here.
