    First, Marvel announced they're creating a new SECRET WARS. Now, the publisher is teasing a new CIVIL WAR! All Marvel revealed is the following image (by Adi Granov) of Iron Man and Captain America fighting over Spider-Man. It's worth noting they're all wearing the costumes they had back during the original CIVIL WAR, too.

    No Caption Provided

    The SECRET WARS teaser image showed the latest incarnations of Marvel's heroes fighting their older versions, so is Jonathan Hickman writing a story which has the modern heroes revisiting some of the Marvel universe's biggest events? Only time shall tell, and it looks like we won't have all of the details until the Summer of 2015. Well, what do you think is going on over at the House of Ideas? Share your thoughts below.

    I like this idea. It would also fit in with the whole "time is breaking" thing Marvel has going on.

    I think the headline should read more like:

    "Marvel announces ANOTHER Civil War?!

    Aren't people tired of seeing heroes fight each other? No? I guess I'll be over here then.

    So we had:

    heroes vs heroes in Civil War

    Heroes vs mutant heroes in AvX

    heroes vs mind controlled heroes in Axis

    and now we may have...

    Heroes vs Heroes...return of the event with the heroes?

    Is someone at Marvel afraid to have the characters fight Dr. Doom?

    @captainmarvel4ever: Well if they're afraid to tell a story because Fox may make a movie (that they'll get some profit from) out of it, then we may as well cancel all the other books and just have elderly Captain America wrestle Grizzly Bears for 17pgs of an X-Men book.

    Though for our luck they'll find out Grizzly Bears are owned by Fox as well.

    Is anyone else just plain tired of Marvel breaking things? I mean wasn't MarvelNOW enough of a shakeup? Why can't we have a few decades keeping things more or less the same? This is just ridiculous that you can't have faith that this company will deliver good stories without threatning reboots, retcons or complete continuity rewrites. I am extremly worried about how Marvel will handle 2015, with the rumors of a New 52 style reboot I am seriously questioning following Marvel comics anymore. It is a sad day that they even threaten what used to be pretty safe since fox owned the rights, the X-Men have been a staple of marvel for the past 50 years, and now rumors of another reboot destorying all that history is enough to make me physcially ill. At least I still have Image comics to fall back on, they are still not popular enough to find financial gain of screwing with core fans...

    OK we are rebooting right? That's got to be why we are doing secret wars and civil wars (and no more mutants to as someone else said) again?

    Is someone going back in time to fix the major marvel events that led up to now?

    Interesting...

    So we've just started Axis and Spider-Verse

    Then after that is Time Runs Out or whatever

    Then we have Black Vortex coming after Planet Venom

    After that is Secret Wars (3?)

    After all those is now Civil War

    Marvel needs to tone down the events or else I'm going to have to start dropping books. I don't have the time nor money to keep up to dat with all of these events..

    I love how so much criticism is thrown Marvel's way for doing too many events, and they saw all that and went "y'know what? F*** it! Not only are we gonna keep over-saturating the market with constant events and crossovers, but we're also going to start doing ones we've already done all over again! Suck it, nerds!"

    As if doing an event for a second time wasn't unoriginal enough, it looks like it's also going to be (most likely) done via time travel.

    Only when people make them it seems. Not a fan? Don't spend money on it. Hopefully it will fall under expectations and they will focus on real storytelling over "events"

    Personally I'm tired of hero vs hero, characters doing stuff so far outside of their personality that they may as well not be the character, and mandatory tie in stuff/cash grabs..

    Civil War may well be the worst event I've ever had the displeasure of reading.

    I've read Ultimatum.

    You would think, right? If only Marvel were that self-aware...

    This has a chance to be quirky and meta, but I'm positive it's just going to be a dumb event with a concept that already starts off tired and played out.

    As long as none of these stupid events affect my monthly books (like New Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, or Deadpool) I say do what you want in these dumb events.

    But for once I would like a good event comic where its the heroes actually UNITING against a great evil instead of fighting each other, you know to have them ACT LIKE FREAKING HEROES?!

    @noteworthington: How dare you spread positive opinions! Who paid you? Who put you up to this? Marvel? Disney? EA?

    Jk ;)

    ________________________

    In all seriousness I'm a little excited by this news, as I really liked the original civil war, but thought it could have been more fleshed out on both sides.

    I as well feel that this won't be a full event in of itself but just a nod to what universes and conflicts we will encounter in the Secret wars.

    Those character designs are so out of plausibility for the main 616 characters to find themselves in this situation. My best bet is that this is just a small conflict miniseries or tie in to the bigger event.

    Secret War just seems like a multiverse battle. Same hero, different time period, different world all fighting. I mean that Spider-Man is ultimate after all. Kind of looks like Super Smash Marvel to me. As for Civil War, I'm excited but what else can they possible fight about! Who got to keep Spider-Man in the divorce!?! Figured they remembered to get a prenup this time around.

    Well if we are going to have another Civil War, can Namor have a more prominent role in it?? I feel like he's been treated like total garbage since AvX. The Namor in New Avengers, I don't even recognize.
