From the Eisner Award winning team that brought you the start of CIVIL WAR with the NEW AVENGERS ILLUMINATI SPECIAL comes this heart-wrenching finale that cannot be missed. Two of the Marvel heroes most affected by the shocking conclusion of the war get together one last time. What is said between them will set the course of the Marvel Universe for years to come. This is the confession. Alex Maleev unveils another new fantastic art style especially for this very emotional issue.

Iron Man arrives on a S.H.I.E.L.D. hellicarrier. He prepares to meet with a captive on board. He begins to tell his side of the story as to why everything happened the way it did. He says it's because of King Arthur. He and Doctor Doom had been transported back in time in and he got to meet him. He knew then that they'd be at war someday. He did what he had to do. Even if it meant fighting against friends. He was willing to go all the way. It turns out he was wrong. The worst thing that could happen did. And now, there is one thing that he can never tell anyone. It was the one thing he should've said. "It wasn't worth it." It turns out, he was speaking to the dead body of Captain America.

In a second story, Captain America is being taken to Ryker's Island maximum security penitentiary. Sitting in a prison specially design against him, Iron Man shows up. Captain America goes off on Iron Man. He tells him that he was the one that made the war happen. After everything he's done, all the death and destruction, the compromises of working with villains, he asks him if it was worth it. Iron Man just tells him he's a sore loser and leaves.

It can be assumed that this story takes place prior to the first one, before Captain America is killed.

Civil War Review 0

The Story - 10/10 Not only do we get beautiful draw hero-against-hero action, we also have some altering drama. The Fantastic 4 split up, with Reed  supporting the Act, Sue  against it and Johnny and Ben stuck in the middle. Captain America and Iron Man, who were once the best of friends, nearly killing each other and the numerous deaths of heroes and villains. The Artwork- 9/10 The artwork is top notch, jumping between realistic and comic book but not going too far on either side. The battle sc...

Boo hoo Tony Stark, you're still a jerk! 0

It became clear who Tony was "talking" to just shortly into his "confession." But I don't care what his motivations were. I don't trust the guy. I don't care if he had some futuristic vision and knew it was going to come down to all this. He just seems shadey and slimey. Look at how happy he is running S.H.I.E.L.D. So maybe he isn't the complete cold-hearted b@$t@rd he's seemed like. I know there are those that agree with what he's doing. He's just upholding the law (that he's helped man...
