When it comes to the actual battles that the characters in “Civil War” will be fighting, readers shouldn’t expect the anti-registration side to just be reactive in fighting for their cause. “They will be a combination of both reactive and proactive,” Millar explained. “I didn’t want to just have these guys in, say, like a terrorist cell or anything because fundamentally Cap’s guys are superheroes. So, the rationale for the Marvel Universe shouldn’t be that they’re just underground guys who are constantly fighting the forces of the status quo. They’ve got to be superheroes. They’ve got to go out and actually fight super villains and, unfortunately, SHIELD and the other superheroes are after them when they’re doing so. It’s an added tension to the whole thing.”

“Civil War” is a conflict between the heroes of the Marvel Universe, but the villains do a play a role in the series. Millar is keeping their part in the story a secret, but he did reveal that he would be touching on an idea from his “Marvel Knights Spider-Man” run in which a secret cabal of industrialists conspired to create many of the costumed villains in the Marvel Universe. “There’s some stuff going on with the villains about half way through the book, but really the main focus of the series is the split between the heroes and the other stuff is just really seasoning.”

The split between the heroes is over the superhuman registration act, which mandates that anyone who puts on a costume and goes out to try and enforce the law must register with and become an agent of the federal government. Heroes who violate the law will find themselves imprisoned in newly redesigned secretive superhuman penitentiaries. “That’s actually quite a big plot point,” Millar stated. “There’s a whole new way of storing super villains and heroes who refuse to sign. It’s quite a big deal. We’re really updating the Marvel Universe in a lot of ways.”

“Civil War” will also address how countries around the world view the US government’s new policy on super humans. Some of the fictional Marvel countries that don’t exactly see eye to eye with the US, like Wakanda, Latveria, Atlantis, and Providence, might even become embroiled in the events of the story. “Some will be involved quite a bit and others will remain neutral and others might come in at a later stage,” Millar explained. “That’s part of the meat of the story really.”

The various countries of the Marvel Universe will have different degrees of participation in “Civil War,” but the globe spanning organization SHIELD will play a definite part in the mega-story. “SHIELD’s new boss Maria Hill isn’t quite as cozy with the superheroes as Nick Fury was,” Millar stated. “So, that works very well within the scenario. It would have been a lot harder to do this if Nick, who is very pro-superhero, was in charge because he would have been probably against the registration act, whereas, Maria Hill made the story a whole lot easier for that.”

So here we are with the conclusion of Miles' first title. After this there was the three-issue Cataclysm tie-in and then 'Miles Morales Spider-Man' before leading into 'Secret War' in which Miles moved to 616 (or whatever Marvel wants us to call it.)  This is a good drop-off point as any but if people want me to continue I will.

Scott Lang was Marvel's second Ant-Man and (by my calculations) the person who had the name and the suit for the longest time. He's someone I'd like to see more of around here*, so to contribute to that and to One Perfect Moment week, here is one of his early adventures.

It's from Marvel Team-Up #103 (March 1981), by David Michelinie (writer), Jerry Bingham (penciler), Mike Esposito (inker), Diana Albers (letterer), and Bob Sharen (colorist). The story is called "The Assassin Academy" and, as the title of the comic and the post indicates, involves him teaming up with Spider-Man.

6 pages and 3 panels from a 22-page story.

Presenting: Spider-Man and Ant-Man in: 'The Assassin Academy' )
One Perfect Context is for the Weak, maybe? )

tags that we don't have on-comm (but could have at delicious, maybe?) - creator:jerry_bingham, creator:mike_esposito, creator:diana_albers, creator:bob_sharen

* could one of the tag wranglers or mods please add the 'char: ant-man/scott lang' tag to this Heroes for Hire post? It could also do with a 'char: power man/luke cage' tag.
