Here’s our favorite quote from The Civil War Comics

 

Captain America: Civil War is finally upon us and its looking to shake up the foundations of the established Marvel Cinematic Universe. I remember that the original Civil War event in the comics was one of the very first comics that really hooked and enthralled me for Marvel content. It was engaging, evocative and thought provoking as it pitted Hero against Hero, Family against Family in an unprecedented battle of philosophies over the Superhuman Registration Act. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the storyline that has stuck with me through the years:

The Road to Civil War

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.


THE COMICS

Civil War 1

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.

In The Car After (Ep.15) Deadpool

DPICABANNER

In this week’s episode we talk about Deadpool!

So straight up confession: We’re pretty lukewarm on the movie, probably because our expectations were so bloated and hyped up which we know is not the best way to enjoy a movie. We also know that we are in the absolute minority in this and if you liked the movie that is also absolutely, perfectly fine.  We do get into how we feel about it in the recording which starts at 19:25 after this week’ But First Some News.

News:
We also get to talk about The Cinefilipino Film Festival 2016 featuring Buhay Habangbuhay, a local comicbook turned into a movie; The Ghostbusters Reboot; The new Prison Break Reboot, and Denise gives us the lowdown on the recent developments in the WWE  and Road to Wrestlemania 2016!

Enjoy!
