Life couldn't be more complicated - or more dangerous - for Peter Parker. 
After rushing to the aftermath of the Stamford Massacre to offer aid to its victims, Peter travels with Tony Stark to Washington, D.C., and the White House - where the enactment of the Super Hero Registration Act appears imminent.
As the Marvel Universe braces for the implications of legislation that will forever change the societal status of super heroes, Peter is forced to make an important personal decision - maybe the most important decision of his life.
As Civil War tears apart the super hero community, will Spidey stay true to that decision? Collects Amazing Spider-Man #532-538.

  •     Good book, it came in good condition, buy it!
  •     Collects Civil War issues #1-7A philosophical debate turns into all-out war between the Marvel Universe's superheroes.Slight spoilers about the set-up for this story:After a superhero/super-villian battle leads a lot of casualties (including elementary school-aged children), a government mandate known as the Superhero Registration Act becomes law. This law states that all super-powered beings living in the United States must register with the government and get formal training before attempting to stop any types of crimes. All heroes that refuse to register (and reveal their secret identities) are considered criminals.Iron Man is the figurehead for the government's point of view, and Captain America is the leader of those that want to maintain their freedom to act anonymously.Almost 10 years later, and this story still stands up. I would consider it one of my all-time favorite Marvel events.I originally read this around August of 2010 when I was first starting to read comics again. This second reading had more impact on me because I am more familiar with the characters' storylines from this time period, and I know what comes afterwards.
  •     I gave up collecting comics back in the 90s because of the constant reboots and retcons. Still there are quite a few arcs of interest that have been created over the years and CIVIL WAR is one such arc. I finally bought the trades (kindle versions) just to brush up on the comic versions before the MCU version hits the screen.There are plenty of crossover books too that take place between the main 7 issue series. And as a big fan of Spidey, I read this in conjunction with CIVIL WAR. It's a good collection for the most part, although the art ' style does not match the caliber and tone of the CIVIL WAR set. Still the narrative of Peter is what interested me the most as he's quite an integral character in the event.One point of criticism against this collection is that it doesn't really extend to the aftermath of CW. What I mean by this is that CW (the 7 issue set) has a kind of epilogue, but this collection with Spidey doesn't quite get there. So we don't get a sense of Peter's reactions to the way things end in CW #7. For that you will need to read elsewhere.
  •     There are so many aspects of this story and the civil war line in general that crossover into our past and present politics and how easy freedoms can be lost in a frenzy of...
  •     Perfect.
  •     It's missing a lot of the story, but it's good for what it is. Good if you are collecting anything civil war related. Beautiful artwork.
  •     This was so much more than I ever expected! It was filled with so many themes and realistic conflicts while being visually stunning.
  •     Unbelievable comic storyline. As good, if not better than the cinematic adaptation!
  •     Good and enjoyable. Great art work. Love the story. Ready to get more to read. Love the marvel universe now
  •     This is a great comic book series! The story is compelling and clearly focused on the issue of whether or not superheroes (metahumans) should have to answer to any organized authority in the pursuit of the hero trade. I cannot recommend this more, and the art work is really top-notch.I don't want to give anything away, but there is littel relationship between the recent movie and the comic book. Comparisons exist, but the plots move in very different directions. As a result, I think that there is a really strong reason to read this set of comics (even if you have seen teh movie). The differences are deliberate and interesting.
  •     Great
  •     Great condition. Great experience.
  •     The Book came prompt and pretty quickly. It was in perfect condition with no bends or tears. I do like this version of the story as well, a slight bit different but still good. In the end of the book it came with the whole break down of the entire Civil War script for the comic itself. All in all it was a great purchase and great read. Thanks!
  •     Collects Civil War issues # 1-7A fight between a team of young amatuer superheroes and some minor supervillians lead to the deaths of 600 innocent civilians, including an elementary school. This leads the US Congress to pass the Superhero Registration Act, requiring all superheroes to register with the government. Sounds reasonable, right? But this is comics, folks. Whatever super-duper firewall you create to hide this information can be broken into by a super-duper criminal hacker. "Become a federal employee, or get thrown into jail" simply because you have super-powers?The Marvel heroes split down the middle, led by Iron Man on the pro-registration side, and Captain America on the anti-registration side.DC and Marvel are always creating these crossover events that "will change our entire universe forever!" For once, they told the truth. And many Marvel fans hated it. I have to admit, it's hard for me to respect Iron Man or Reed Richards after this, and as for anyone else who took their side like She-Hulk, well, I just have to pretend they didn't. In spite of the controversy, I think this is a great, Watchmen-esque story that looks at superheroes from a more realistic point of view (which may be why some people hate it).Although this book gives you a complete story that more or less works, you won't really get the full story unless you get some of the better tie-ins. For example, you won't really get what's going on with Spider-Man unless you readThe Amazing Spider-Man: Civil War. I'm solidly on Captain America's side, and Straczynski's Spider-Man book put me there.Edit to add: I'm not that familiar with Captain America, but it's probably a fair criticism of this book that its portrayal of Cap is out of character. (This may go for Tony Stark and Reed Richards as well.)
  •     Packed with action and emotion from start to finish. Civil War, is a must-read.With that said, writing and illustrating one of the most important events in the Marvel Universe was certainly a difficult task. As much as I wanted to give Civil War a five star rating, I could not. Something was off. Whether or not it was the severity of the situation weighing on the minds of the heroes (and villains) portrayed in this story, almost all of them didn't seem to be acting correctly, or making decisions that they normally would have made. Long story short, Captain America as well as Iron Man were off. But then again, there was a civil war of sorts unfolding around them.Throughout the story, there were a good deal of ups and downs and twists and turns. Several times, I found myself staring at the pages, unable to continue on, saying to myself, "Holy S***!" But with odd characterizations and a very unsatisfying ending, I have to rate Civil War honestly and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
  •     Just wonderful. Surprising but great. Can't wait to read other Marvel comics. Didn't expect the comic to end in the way it did but it made sense.
