According to the New York Times article on the story, "The story opens with a reckless fight between the New Warriors, filming a reality television show, and a cadre of villains. The battle becomes quite literally explosive, killing some of the superheroes and many innocent bystanders. That crystallizes a government movement to register all super-powered beings as living weapons of mass destruction. The subsequent Registration Act will divide the heroes into two camps, one led by Captain America, the other by Iron Man. Along the way, Marvel will unveil its version of Guantánamo Bay, enemy combatants, embedded reporters and more. The question at the heart of the series is a fundamental one: 'Would you give up your civil liberties to feel safer in the world?' "

# “It’s like the wild west” said Millar, of the tone of the series, and what it’ll be like with superheroes working for the government.
# “Nobody is right and nobody is wrong”,” says Millar, regarding the fact that heroes will be conflicting with other, citing Iron Man and Captain America as representative of the ideological conflict. Iron Man genuinely believes in working with the government and Captain America believes in the altruism of simply fighting for what’s right. Neither will be completely right or wrong.
# “I don’t think dark is a bad thing,” said Millar of “Civil War’s” tone and cited a desire to find a balance between darkness & light. “It’s very old school, I’m a fan of secret identities and the old school Marvel approach. Some people who looked at the scripts have been surprised by that.”
# “Marvel has never been light,” added Millar, mentioning the drug addiction issues of Spider-Man and the alcoholism affecting Tony Stark. He also mentioned love of big superhero fights and how cool it is see to a walking nuclear weapon like Iron Man fighting a tough guy like Captain America.
# There is no mastermind controlling heroes, revealed Marvel, hoping to quash Internet rumors. There is no one pulling strings or controlling their minds. This wi

I love the comics where a bunch of heroes dog pile on to the Hulk.
For months, Marvel has been asking "Whose side are you on?" Well, now it's decision time.
Marvel has released two Civil War banners that can be posted on your website, in your message board signature, or on your Myspace page. Choose your side in Civil War and prominently display your choice with either a Captain America Anti-Super Hero Registration banner or an Iron Man Pro-Registration banner.
Not only will these banners tell everyone whose side you are on, but they link back to Marvel.com so you can keep abreast of all the latest Civil War news.
The battle lines have been draw and it's time to take a side. Show your Civil War pride with either a "I'm with Captain America" or "I'm with Iron Man" banner.
