it heavily depends on what entity is running it

If it was The Avengers Initiative, being run by The Avengers, and not the government, then yes, i would be for it.  But we live in an age where government laptops containing the social security numbers of soldiers fighting overseas are lost or stolen rather easily. 

If it was being run by Tony Stark, there would have been no Civil War.  But it was a governmental mandate which made it unpalatable.

The X-Men teams have been "registered" for years, with the leadership knowing who and accounting for all those who fought under their banner.  Same with the Avengers.  At least 3 of the New Warriors were reserve Avengers for crying out loud, so there was already a de facto registration without governmental interference and oversight.  All they had to do was create some sort of "Junior Avengers" program run out of the Avengers' Mansion via one of the old Hulkbuster bases in Arizona or Nevada.

But ya know what? Stamford would still have happened, because Speedball/Penance did not do enough to make sure the battle was contained away from civilians.  The only difference would have been that maybe, just maybe, a few more heroes would have died.

Big, Green, Mean, What's not to love?

For me it's a toss up between WWH and Mr. Fixit.  Mr. Fixit was the first Hulk i knew when i started reading comics, so i will always have a place for him. He was a total badash, had some great dialogue, and had me rooting for him whereas i pitied the savage hulk when i started grabbing back issues. 
  Now Hulk the King (with all apologies to Conan) is a whole different thing.  This is a smart, cunning tactician who is capable of one thing all other Hulks before were not, Leadership.  The Warbound followed him because they needed him, but he lead them because no one else could.  I'm just sorry that it had to be one who called him brother that took everything from him. 

The king is dead, Long Live King Hulk!
