It's an ending. I'm not a big fan of conclusions that are basically nesting dolls. Epilogues are a great place to tease what's coming/fallout, but a final issue should aim to deliver resolution first and foremost in my opinion. [...] Often these things end with 'and here's what the next event/linewide shift' will be. I like real endings. -- Nick Spencer

"Nemesis is the world’s smartest man, and the bad news for us is that he’s the world’s only super-villain. That means he’s got freeze guns and jump-jets and all these James Bond gadgets and he’s using them against us. To entertain himself, he picks a different cop every year and makes his life a misery. The book opens with him fucking over Japan’s top cop, and then our story, the mini-series, takes place as he shifts his attention to Washington and his first American attacks."

"What if this genius billionaire was just this total shit, and the only thing that stood between him and a city was the cops? It’s Batman versus Commissioner Gordon, in a weird way. Or maybe a super-villain version of Se7en. A billionaire anarchist up against ordinary people. The Joker’s the best thing in the Batman movies, so this guy is a bit of an amalgamation of all the stuff we like."

"You know, I’ve always loved the Old Man Logan story. That’s a beauty. Maybe in 20 years time I’ll just pop up and do that one." - Hugh Jackman, 2014

As you may or may not have heard, the upcoming 'Logan' film is loosely inspired by the storyline 'Old Man Logan', a comic that Hugh Jackman had been hoping to adapt for years. Everything indicates that the similarities will likely be thematic for obvious reasons (99% of the major characters couldn't appear in a Fox film) but if you wanted to see the launching pad for the film here it is.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

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.”
