In Marvel's Civil War II, opposing factions of superheroes battle, but instead of an allegory about civil liberties and personal freedom that the 2007 Civil War comic and this year's movie is tackling, this new limited series is an allegory between determinism and free will. The sequel's main argument will revolve around the debate of whether or not superheroes should use a new power to stop crimes before they ever happen, à la Minority Report.

A mysterious being with the power to see the future with uncanny accuracy will prevent a tragic disaster, dividing the heroes of the Marvel universe into two sides.

First off, the team led by Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel, the pro-Minority Report team. They will fight to use this new entity to punish criminals before they commit crimes.

She is joined by:

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

Meanwhile, the anti-Minority Report team is led by Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man. They think that the whole purpose of superheroes is to not randomly beat and lock up people for things they haven't done yet. Tony Stark is joined by:

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

So which side are you going to root for? I'm probably siding with Team Iron Man on this one.

Civil War II: Bigger, Badder, and More Civil begins in May.
