Captain America: Civil War is just around the corner, so let us provide you with a refresher course on how we arrived to this epic war of ideologies.
First off, a brief background on the source material. Civil War came about due to a superhero reality show gone awry, with the New Warriors discovering some super villain escapees of Ryker’s Island in a small town. Short story, one of the villains, Nitro, exploded which caused the death of hundreds of people including children from a nearby elementary school. With that, the US Government sought to enact the Superhero Registration Bill that would require every masked hero/vigilante to register with the government and be regulated by it, and anyone who opposes or fails to register would be regarded as a fugitive.
Ironman initially opposed the proposed bill but in the end sided with the Registration Act on the ground that the heroes must be accountable for their actions and should first be trained and certified by the government before being allowed to fight crime. Captain America, on the other hand, fought for his Constitutional right and opposed the act on the basis of protecting his identity and the safety of the people that he cares about. From here, a divide was created and the heroes took their sides, either with Ironman or with Captain America.

The world just recently geeked out over the Avengers: Age of Ultron. Most of us sighed and looked lovingly at Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Hulk and Black Widow. Some of us gasped when Captain America, ever so slightly, lifted the Mjolinir. We somehow felt their seeming helplessness, as they plan on defeating Ultron. I, for one, smiled when Vision appeared right before my eyes (pun intended), because well, Paul Bettany, need I say more. The world was somehow engrossed over the Avengers and someday soon we will go gaga over Batman v. Superman, and hopefully the Justice League (fingers crossed).
