One More Day was one of the most idiotic, asinine, farfetched asspulls I've ever read, and I read fucking Bleach.
I kinda liked Civil War. Sure, Tony Stark and Reed Richards come out as total assholes, but I never cared much for comics Stark, and movie Stark is basically a different universe anyway. Spider Man acted as an ass and the way his plot was wrapped up afterwards was pathetic - Back in Black was somewhat enjoyable (though definitely out of character in many parts), but One More Day was one of the most idiotic, asinine, farfetched asspulls I've ever read, and I read fucking Bleach.
What side are you on? Security or freedom?
Well, I'm on a pirate fansub website, silly question, ain't it ?Anyway the Civil War was barely concealed in its being a metaphor for the war on terror and in general the post 9/11 climate in the US, but I appreciate that it at least tried to bring these issues into the comics. Without it we wouldn't have had movies like Captain America: the Winter Soldier, and speaking of movies, I'm confident that the cinematic version of Civil War (the announced Cap 3 movie) will probably espunge most of the bad while keeping the good, that is, the genuine conflict of ideals between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.Said this, the ending was realistic also because what was Cap really going to do? Subvert the US government? Punch the Senate into submission? Come on .
One plus side to the cinematic universe version of Civil War is that there will likely be no such thing as Spiderman OR Mr. Fantastic to get in the way! lolI've never read the Civil War Arc itself, but I've read up on it a bit.
When One More Day came along, the situation was irredeemably fucked up, and it took the biggest, lamest retcon in the history of Marvel comics to fix it back to a sustainable state.Thing is, apparently this was done because they knew they were going to reboot the franchise at some point so they said to the writers they could go batshit crazy with the character before then. From a narrative and continuity point of view, though, this was absolute shit.
They should have instead given him a hero's death and then reboot it.
I'm not a huge Spider-man fan to begin with (nor am I a fan of the fantastic four) I don't hate either I just don't particularly care for them either so... No loss for me that they are not present. However, "One More Day" seems to have an infamy about it that makes it seem like a good idea for Spider-man to NOT be present in the MCU version of Civil War.
"Dr. Octopus becomes Spiderman". So the entire crapping over the whole character was perfectly pointless. A shitstain on Spiderman's record for the ages.

"The Master Race"...yeah, probably gonna give this a pass and just save the good memories, thanks .
Batman vs. the PC Master Race, the greatest battle in existence.
