Here’s another comic book piece for you. I ran across this a few days ago. It seems that Spiderman has unmasked himself and told the world his secret identity in a press conference. HUH?!?! I know. Apparently it is the latest blow in a new series by Marvel comics called Civil War. In the story there has been a battle between super heroes and super villains and many innocent civilians were killed. The government now wants all super heroes to disclose their identity as a part of the Super-Hero Registration Act. Spiderman is obviously for the Act and Captain America is agin’ it. I guess Spidey and his crew will do battle with Cap and his crew. It’s good guy on good guy violence.
It sounds pretty interesting but once the cat’s, brrrrrrttt, out of the bag, can these “outed” superheroes ever go back? Also, isn’t this just every X-Men story ever written? I would like to see how this all plays out, but I have no idea how to get these comic books. I know of no local comics stores, I am assuming I can track them down on line, but it’s hot and I’m sweaty down here in the dungeon and, frankly, I’m too damn lazy to do it. Perhaps this could be crafted into a movie. It might be pretty cool to have all these different superheroes fighting each other and it would teach us about the importance of our civil liberties, but that goes without saying.
