In the midst of Civil War, Captain America and Iron Man meet secretly, one last time, to see if there’s any hope of working things out before further tragedy occurs. Don’t miss this oversized special that reveals how these two men, once the closest of friends and staunchest of allies, could end up leading opposing armies in the conflict tearing apart the Marvel Universe!

Iron Man and Captain America meet at the ruins of Avengers Mansion to see if they can bring the Civil War to a peaceful conclusion. Stark explains that there should be accountability and training for suepr heroes just as there is for other law officers. Steve reminds him of times when heroes loved ones have died because their ennemies knew their identities. Tony insists their identities would only be made public by choice, but Rogers reminds him of numerous villains who could easely hack it. Even if they didn't, Steve points out that administrations change, recalling having to adopt new identities when politicians didn't like his actions, insisting Registration removes the hero's autonomy, and recalling Japanese-Americans being rounded up when theu were considered security threats. Iron Man brings up his own past mistakes, noting that heroes can't just police themselves. They need oversight. Cap reminds him of times both men were framed for crimes, and would have been unable to prove their innocence if they had been held for trial. Iron Man insists most of the anti-Registration heroes are only fighting that side because they idolize Cap, but Cap retorts that Tony manipulates peolple to get what he wants, arrogantly believing he always knows best. Tony tells him the alternative to Registration was Project Wideawake, rounding up all the superbeing, but Rogers insists that at the end is comes down to civil liberties, and he refuses to exchange freedom for anything. The conversation quickly degenerates and the two come to blows. Realizing they should have spoken cooner, the heroes part ways.

Aha, this one is interesting... 0

This story features no action with the exception of a little scrap at the end. The whole comic book is full of flashbacks where the two heroes Steve and Tony look at their past. It gets annoying for people like me who have only read the newer comics and aren't sure of what the characters are refrencing. In terms of writing a review, here you go...Hardcore Civil War fans will love this because it really gets into the minds of the characters. You learn why each of the people think the way they do ...
