So here we are, the big finish to Peter Parker's tenure on 'Ultimate Spider-Man' (but not my last post in the series, there's one more). For this arc Bendis was reunited with original artist Mark Bagley. This was a pretty big event for Marvel right down to the ominous previews (which were just 'Death of Spider-Man' leading people to wonder if 616's days were numbered) to the multiple variant covers to the last issue being in a polybag. (I always found the last bit to be kind of funny; they said it was to prevent spoilers but then they went to the press with the ending a day before its release.)

"It was not Doc Doom and other villains at ground zero, just like it was not a young child crying for his fallen father. It was a representation...a symbol...a metaphor for real feelings and thoughts. It was, excuse the sugar-coating, JMS' and my heart and soul on those pages. I didn't ever cringe at the thought of those characters being in that spot. To me, it made sense. This kind of cowardly, unspeakable horror effects all of us...ALL OF US! I don't want to say..."Lighten Up"! I want everyone to concentrate on what happened on 9/11. Don't forget...Don't EVER forget!" -- John Romita Jr.

So far CIVIL WAR II has not gotten to the point of crossovers: Heroes who have fought on the same side for years shouting "I HATE YOU! I'VE ALWAYS HATED YOU!"

Ann Nocenti: I remember after a Captain America story we got a letter that said, "Get the commie off the book." We had a big laugh about that one. Luckily, I had an enlightened editor, Ralph Macchio, so while we had lots of fun conversation about the issues, and he often disagreed with my politics, he let me do what I wanted. He was an extremely supportive and intelligent editor.

DAREDEVIL #283 is an Ann Nocenti story that features artwork by Marc Bagley. It has "The Cold War is winding down, now what?" themes and guest stars Captain America.

"For most readers over the decades, “Thunderbolt” Ross has been the preeminent figure representing the military, and always holding that military role in opposition to super-powered people. But from years of being so close to the fire in essence, he’s been burned–he’s become the thing he fought for so long. And he completely did it to himself, he can’t blame anyone else. It leaves him in a very interesting place for a character.

He’s reached the end of one life and is beginning another, and though we may resent him for a lot of reasons, we can empathize with him at the same time. And he was never evil, just wrong headed. Seeing the world through the eyes of being a Hulk is a big transformation beyond being able to punch through a mountain. I think readers will see some of their friends and family and even themselves in Ross.

We'll get back Loeb's run later, but here's what came after it and I think we'll all agree, this is sooo much better.

Seems apt to put create a thread for those who have now, since it's out in the USA (a week after we got it in the UK, so I've been very self controlled here), seen the latest addition to the MCU franchise.

What are your thoughts and opinions of Captain America 3: Civil War (or "Avegers 2.5" as I've seen it playfully referred to)

Of course, there will be spoilers in the discussion, so proceed at your own risk if you wish to remain unspoiled, plot wise.
