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.
