    Feel free to talk about the Civil War: The Initiative" one-shot here, by the way...or start up it's own talkback thread for it, if you really want to discuss it.

    Eh, not really impressed. Just felt really tacked together. I thought we'd be getting some political intrigue, examinations, and whatnot in regards to the process and policies of the Initiative. The Omega Flight and Thunderbolts pieces were interesting, but the Ms. Marvel story sortof fell flat, and the last few pages being nothing more than previews sortof dampen the Initiative.

    All I know is I should probably lay off the comics for a while after this. Oh and one other thing...

    Shut the hell up Penance.

    I just want to say that I'm very dissapointed with the end of CW. I don't like that Cap surrendered and basicly admitted that he was wrong (which he wasn't) I also didnt like the way that the reporter talked to Cap. Am I completely off base when I say that tony is now a villian because of his actions through out all of CW??

    The end was definitely not altogether earned. It was, dare I say, a bit anti-climactic. Still, while I was rooting for Captain America's side, the pro-reg. winning will have the more interesting ramifications across the Marvel universe.
    Still, they really got me set for Spider-Man's new black costume, and I think he donned it way, way too quick.

    Anyway, someone help me out. I only really read the main line. Last time I saw Cap., he was in jail. I found out about his death from Colbert. What the heck happened? How did Captain America die?

    Whaaat? Really? That's not how it happened, is it? Ugh...so many things wrong with that.
    • Unidentified? No. Someone would have shouted "Steve Rogers" or "Captain America has been shot!"
    • Can he even die from gunshot wounds? I guess maybe, but...die?
    • Why would he be tried in New York instead of before the military?
    Just doesn't sound very thought out by the writers. Feels like they were in a hurry to just shock us. Not that his end was very fitting. How about something epic? You can still have him murdered and make it epic.
    Anyway, NOW would have been a good time to have Spidey tailor his black suit. They should never have revealed that suit that early, and they shouldn't have put it on him before there was a good reason.
    Whatever. Did they ever say who did it yet?

    The "article" clearly says "in front of a military tribunal."

    Cap is human. He's superbly trained, and possesses strength, speed, agility, stamina, all that good stuff at levels representing the peak of human ability, but he's still human. A bullet of the right size in the right place and he dies like any other human. His Captain America uniform may be bullet-proof or bullet-resistant, but if he was about to be tried before a military tribunal, he would likely be in a military dress uniform or prisoner's outfit.

    You could find many things wrong with all this, but these aren't on the list.

    Read that again very, very carefully.

    My main problem is the fact that it's kind of an anti-climactic way for a hero to go out after half a century of gracing the pages of comics.
    Your point about precision is also a reason why I asked if anyone knew who did it, since it would take, as you already know, someone with that kind of precision.
