Just imagine all Avengers retiring. They would only retire on Earth. They can still fight Thanos except when he is on Earth.

A large problem with the movie was that, while it borrowed a few ideas from the comic, it failed to provide the build up to the events. And it failed utterly at conveying the nuances of the argument.

The movie, perhaps somewhat predictably as this is Hollywood we're talking about, casts an international organisation as the "villain" of the story. But in the comic, it was actually the US government, spurred on by an outcry from the population at large, that finally put the hammer down and tried to get the masked superheroes under control. How many times should New York have to be rebuild? How much collateral damage should be accepted? Don't forget that the event that started it all was superheroes staring in a reality show.

In this light Ironman's arguments makes more sense. Enough is enough. Superheroes had been allowed to run amok for too long. And now they either accept a loosely held leash, or they will eventually face the full fury of the government. His actions were wrong – and terribly so – but the basic idea was sound. On the other hand, the counter arguments were also sound. Can the government be trusted to keep the identities of the superheroes secret? What would happen if they couldn't? And what about mutants? Can you force people to register with the government, simply for being born with the wrong genes?

It's a Catch 22 for all involved. Personal freedom must be respected, but something has to be done to stop the constant destruction and loss of life.

So while I have to say that I'm not a fan of the Civil War comics (it all felt rather contrived), they did at least make a whole lot more sense than the movie did. And more importantly, it showed that there truly were consequences to peoples actions, with the outcry of the population finally convincing Captain America to surrender and with most people turning away from Ironman in disgust over what he had done.

So while this critique is fair within the context of this movie on its own, it fails to draw the bigger picture of why the movie ended up being what it is. And what it could have been, had Hollywood had the guts to tackle the deeper issues.

For me, this was the movie that broke the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They had some good plot points to explore, but they abandoned them in favour of a typical NWO-conspiracy type story that asked no deep questions and provided no answers. It was an absolute mess. And when the final movies were released, I simply couldn't be bothered to go watch them.

9:48 I know none of the fictional media would’ve seen it so they couldn’t argue this, but she could’ve sent him underground like she did to The Vision
