The details on "Civil War"

A couple of months ago, I got a chance to chat with Marvel editor in chief Joe Quesada about Marvel’s big event this year, “Civil War.” An article in today’s New York Times has a lot more juicy details, including news of a related biweekly series starting in June, “Civil War: Front Line.” It also explains what leads to the push for a Superhero Registration Act, which is what divides the Marvel heroes in the upcoming “Civil War.” The story, the Times reports, will open with a fight between a novice group of heroes filming a reality TV show and “a cadre” of villains. Some heroes are killed, as are many innocent bystanders. The New York Times also reveals that by the end of “Civil War,” Marvel’s heroes — some of them, anyway — will be employed by the government.
