"Casualties of War" - exploring the conflict

I finally got to the comic-book shop today. It was a pretty big Marvel week for me, including the first issue of “Illuminati,” a Thing-themed issue of “Fantastic Four” and “New Avengers” No. 26, promising the return of Hawkeye and the Scarlet Witch.

But what I’m looking most forward to reading when I get home tonight is “Casualties of War,” a one-shot “Civil War” tie-in that probes the conflict between Iron Man and Captain America. So far during “Civil War,” the two heroes have seemed out of character to me, particularly Iron Man. So I’m hoping the book delves deep enough to show me that the conflict hasn’t been as black-and-white to the two as it seems.

What did you think of it?

I found it to be disapointing myself - it didn't really resolve anything, just gave us a review of their past history. At most it was well written with good art, at worst just a fill in until CW #6 hits next week.

Well, you're right, it didn't resolve anything, but at least it made Iron Man a bit less of a creep and his support of the registration act more believable.
