I must say that I War Machine was obvious, but I was hoping I was wrong about it. I wonder if he still a cyborg in that suit. Also, I am very glad Beast is getting back to the Avengers. I am also glad that he seems to be losing his blue-lion look. He has his missing fingers back and he's losing that Persian Cat face. Good Riddance! Perhaps he can play guitar with his feet again.

Many people have brought up some really good points. The SHRA ultimately created a Liberty vs. Security argument. Many Governments struggle with this decision all the time. Ultimately, both sides made some terrible Mistakes. Stark should not have created Ragnarok, used the Thunderbolts and arrested Anti-Registration Forces. Rogers should not have fought Pro-Registration forces head on or went underground. If only both sides were able to come to some kind of compromise. Someone had noted that registration should have been optional. Perhaps both sides should've remembered that SHRA was a broader version of the Mutant Registration Act. 
Of the many many arguments that I have seen many people also forget to bring up that SHRA also needed non-powered people to Register as well. Wouldn't asking a person like Hawkeye be the equivalent of asking a police officer or a soldier to register under the SHRA, let alone any person that is proficient in Martial Arts or guns? There were many Discrepancies in the SHRA. Marvel even brought it up in the New Avengers issue when Iron Man tried to arrest Iron Fist. Rand's lawyer argued that his "powers" are only the result of years of training his body. But then if a natural gift is not a power, wouldn't that make mutants exempt from the SHRA as well? I mean, their powers are natural gifts as well. If you target them as part of the SHRA then it would be racism. From there, not many heroes are left to be Registered.
Considering the effectiveness of the SHRA, there were also many problems. Camp Hammond had many incidents occur which resulted in the death of some trainees. During World War Hulk, the Registered heroes hardly made a dent in Hulk's Forces. During the Skrull invasion, the 50 State initiative was a way for the Skrulls to infiltrate the Super Human Community easier. Finally as of Dark Reign, Norman Osborn was almost able to procure the identities and information of every registered hero. I would say that Registration neither was effective nor prevented any tragedies.

@Pez85:  He is the shining example of the American way. I believe it was Jefferson that said that a little rebellion every once in a while is what a country needs to stay strong. Steve fought for what he believed was right as well. Sometimes going against the government is the right move. Remember that interracial marriage was once illegal in the U.S. Slavery was accepted and only white males with land were the only ones allowed to vote. Do you think we should have just rolled over on those issues or fight against it as we did?

"Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world - 'No, you move.'" - Steve Rogers
 "Captain America is not here to lead the country. I'm here to serve it. If I'm a captain, then I'm a soldier. Not of any military branch, but of the American people. Years ago, in simpler times, this suit and this shield were created as a symbol to help make America the land it's supposed to be... to help it realize its destiny. Ricocheting from super-villain duel to super-villain duel doesn't always serve that purpose. There's a difference between fighting against evil and fighting for the common good. I'm not always able to choose my battles... but effective immediately, I'm going to make an effort to choose the battles that matter. Battles against injustice, against cynicism, against intolerance. I will still serve with the Avengers. I will continue to defend this nation from any and all threats it may face. But as of today, I am not a "super hero." Now and forevermore, I am a man of the people. Together, you and I will identify and confront America's problems. Together, we will figure out what we are and what we can be. Together, we will define the American Dream and make it an American reality." - Steve Rogers
 "Do you actually think the fact that you know how to program a computer makes you more of a human being than me? That I'm out of touch because I don't know what you know? I know what freedom is. I know what it feels like to fight for it and I know what it costs to have it. You know compromise." - Steve Rogers
 "These are dark and desperate times. I know that some of you are afraid. It's alright. It's perfectly natural. But I want you to know that I am not. I am not afraid to die this day because what we do here is necessary. It may seem impossible, our enemies may appear to be endless, but that doesn't matter. Because there is no one else. Look at me. I believe in an idea, an idea that a single individual who has the right heart and the right mind that is consumed with a single purpose, that one man can win a war. Give that one man a group of soldiers with the same conviction, and you can change the world." - Steve Rogers

@Invaderzim: way to take a joke, you do realize this isn't really going to be the comic right?

@Mbecks14: I agree, Killing Prometheus is not the same as defending Star City. Preventing evil is also not the same as doing good.

@GraveSp: He didn't kill him now did he. Darkseid is still going about in some kind of limbo between reality, time, and the multiverse.

@brc2000: @The WeatherMan: Cops and Soldiers are never forced to kill. The choice to kill was not given to them, that was circumstance if they chose to kill. Otherwise, no I don't consider every cop and soldier a hero. Call me unpatriotic but talk to a cop or soldier who has killed. They do not feel like heroes for taking the life of another even if that person did not deserve life. The doing of good is different from preventing evil. Those two concepts are not the same. Maybe you should read some Captain America, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, or maybe you should actually read your comics. This message is repeated in every superhero comic in existence.

 Batman is an ordinary human too. But Batman NEVER EVER kills. The true power that people like Batman have is to be able to restrain themselves from killing. That restraint is what gives Batman power. All Green Arrow is to me now, is a communist with a bow. He no longer processes that power of  restraint. Therefore, I no longer have respect for that character.

Heroes who kill are not truly heroes. They are almost as bad as the villain they kill. Taking another life is unforgivable. Taking the life of one who has taken lives is not justified.
