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.
