Here Are the Opposing Teams In Marvel's Civil War II Comics

Marvel has spent the last few weeks teasing the cadre of heroes picking sides in its upcoming event Civil War II: Electric Registration Boogaloo. But now, it looks like they have revealed the key players in the debate of "What did you learn after watching Minority Report for the first time?" In Civil War II — an event happening this year that is not at all related to a certain movie starring Captain America coming out soon — a mysterious entity with the power to see the future (accurately, for once) will prevent a tragic disaster, splitting the heroes of the Marvel universe into two sides.

Here Are the Opposing Teams In Marvel's Civil War II Comics

The side that watched Minority Report and went "Hey man, that pre-crime place had some pretty nifty ideas" will be led by Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel, who will fight to use this new being to punish criminals before they can commit the crime they're being punished for. As you can see in the image above, she is joined by:

  • Monica Rambeau
  • She-Hulk
  • Ant-Man
  • The Winter Soldier
  • Hawkeye
  • Blue Marvel
  • Medusa
  • Captain America (Steve Rogers-flavoured)
  • The Vision
  • War Machine
  • Spider-Man

Meanwhile on the side that watched Minority Report and went "CAROL DID YOU EVEN WATCH ALL OF THIS MOVIE, JESUS" is Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, who thinks that the whole purpose of superheroes is to not randomly beat down and lock up people for things they have not done yet. He is joined by:

  • Black Widow
  • Deadpool
  • Captain America (Sam Wilson-flavoured)
  • The Totally Awesome Hulk, (AKA Amadeus Cho)
  • Hercules
  • Black Panther
  • Luke Cage
  • Thor (Jane Foster)
  • America Chavez
  • Star-Lord
  • Daredevil

Some of these choices are really weird. She-Hulk is Carol's friend, sure, but I have absolutely no idea why, as an attorney, she'd be all about persecuting people before they have committed a crime. But hey, things were a bit weird the last time the words "Civil War" were bandied around at Marvel, too.

We'll see these teams duke it out soon enough, when Civil War II: Bigger, Badder and More Civil begins in May.

    these teams look nuts. i find it hilarious that Deadpool even cares enough to pick a side. but with a match up like this, i gotta get my ass into a comixology subscription.
    WOOT!

      apprently he is on fence, but joins tony side due to the fact that deadpool funds the uncanny avengers. thats according to ign though

      Deadpool likes money, the Government pays big with their contracts... He did the same thing in the first Civl War event

    seems really stupid logically, iirc in minority report all crimes were stopped just as they were about to happen, not the moment someone got the idea, it was only when they tried to arrest tom cruise the moment it came up that things went to shit. basically its perfect intelliegence gathering. Cops dont go and arrest people the moment they get 1 piece of information, they do it once they have a enough to lay charges, or if they feel something bad is imminent.

      Nope, in MR some people were arrested even prior to the crime being committed. The precogs would detect their intent, the police would go and arrest.

      The problem came when someone managed to prove that the precogs predictions were not perfect, their predictions could be manipulated and the future changed from what they predicted.

        Not really so much "changed" but so much that it could be "directed" to show a specific event so they still saw future events... but it was all staged and manipulated. Like being show a play per se

        At the most basic level this was paying off X person to "think" of committing a crime to cover events to more elaborate set ups. Of course the wrench in the works was IIRC one of the precogs actually "detected" this manipulation and showed an event being "changed"

    If it is a deathmatch, Deadpool's side is winning.

    Wait so cap was against government regulation in the first Civil War but is all for locking people up before they commit a crime? What the hell? Are they just swapping sides this time around for the hell of it?

    Thematically it makes so much more sense for Iron Man to be pro-stop a bad thing before it happens than for Cap to jump on that band wagon?

      Steve Rogers is now an old man, being contrasted with the new more liberal Captain America. So despite all previous characterisation, I guess they've siding him with the conservatives.

      Also, he's got to be on the opposite side to Iron Man as a homage to the previous series, no matter how much sense it might make.

        "Old man" he may be... but it still doesn't blend in w/ his character though.

        That being said... seriously we are doing a Civil War 2? Good grief they must really be running out of ideas at this point =/

        Is it so sad that the last series I actually found enjoyable was Spiderman and the X-men for finding that right balance of comedy, action and self contained stories?!

    I'd respectfully disagree and say -
    "As an attorney, you'd think She Hulk would be all about due process - and due to her respect for the law, she'd be against prosecuting people before they'd possibly even formed an intention to commit a crime. I'm sure she'd see the argument for some cases ie. Accused was found in the intended victims house, uninvited, with a weapon - as probable cause/intent, as the law currently interprets "attempted" criminal cases.

    She's a lawyer - but she's no Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill. Charles Soule's last SH series was great, I'd recommend checking it out. Legally!

      exactly is just evidence/intelligence gathering like now, the only difference now is that you know that such and such will occur at x point in time so you can be ready to act to stop it or delay it by impeding it. to use the kennady assassination as an example, you could have an under cover cop keep tabs on oswald while he scopes out the book depository, and then place undercover cops there afterwards so that they can search and arrest him just before he fires, because why else would he be there with a rifle on the very route that the president is traveling

    Has anyone realised yet besides me that this is the story of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, SHIELD/HYDRA were going to use the new AI System to wipe out criminals and too be criminals, this is the same, lock up people before their done the crime, it's the same story except ironically Iron Man is playing Captain America and Ms Marvel is playing SHIELDRA (SHIELD + HYDRA)

    Pretty sure Hulk or Thor by themselves would wipe the floor with the entire opposing team.

    This Civil war sounds a lot worse than the first one. Both reason for it happening and the sides characters have been put on. Stark would be full on into precrime arresting. While Captain america would be dead set against it. And she hulk would be all about the rule of law so unless the law is changed she should be on the other team. Haven't read in quite a while though so maybe something recent happened to make this make sense?

      The last Civil War storyline seemed to have those characters around the wrong way too. The free market capitalist takes the "more government regulation" side, while the anti-government forces are lead by a symbol of patriotism.

    I think She-Hulk was anti-Government in the first series too, but she fought legally rather than physically.

      Didn't she get de-powered early on?

        She was technically depowered when it started. I'm rereading the event now. So far she's argued against a leak of heroes real names by a website, then she was proposed to... And that's it so far. I'm only 25 issues into the 106 issue set
