Marvel’s Civil War II teams revealed
Set to debut this June from Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez, Civil War II revolves around a mysterious new Marvel character who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy. This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.
Joining Iron Man on the side of protecting the future are Captain America (Sam Wilson), Thor, Black Panther, Star-Lord, Luke Cage, Hercules, Miss America, Daredevil, Black Widow The Hulk (Amadeus Cho), and Deadpool.
Sidiing with Captain Marvel with the idea of changing the future is Captain America (Steve Rogers), War Machine, Spider-Man, Vision, Medusa, Blue Marvel, The Winter Soldier, Spectrum, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, and Ant-Man.
The events of Civil War II will kick off with a prologue story that will debut on Free Comic Book Day on Saturday May 7. In the story, the precognitive character will claim that one hero in the Marvel Universe will be the cause of a major destructive event in three-days time, leading to the divide in the Marvel Universe among the heroes about how to handle it. It was also previously revealed that Marvel will have the character be murdered in the pages of the event, by none other than a fellow hero. Neither character’s identity has been revealed as of yet.
Two spin-offs of Civil War II have been revealed thus far, with more on the way most likely, and include: Civil War II: X-Men from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Andrea Broccardo which will pit mutants against Inhumans; and Civil War II: Spider-Man from writer Christos Gage and artist Travel Foreman which sees the webslinger trying to relay the message of “with great power comes great responsibility” to the Inhuman at the center of the event.
