Civil War is a 20062007 Marvel Comics crossover storyline built around a seven-issue limited series of the same name written by Mark Millar and penciled bySteve McNiven, which ran through various other titles published by Marvel at the time. The storyline builds upon the events that developed in previous Marvel crossovers, particularly Avengers Disassembled, House of M, and Decimation. The tagline for the series is, “Whose Side Are You On?”[1]

The plot of the series follows a framework storyline in which the U.S. government passes a Superhero Registration Act ostensibly designed to have superpowered individuals act under official regulation, somewhat akin to law enforcement. However, superheroes opposed to the act, led by Captain America, find themselves in conflict with those supporting the act, led by Iron Man, with Spider-Man caught in the middle; the X-Men take a neutral stance. The superheroes in support of the law, such as Iron Man, Dr. Reed Richards, and Ms. Marvel, increasingly become authoritarian. In the aftermath of the war, Captain America surrenders and is imprisoned. The conflict between freedom and security is an underlying theme in the storyline, with real-life events and discussions, such as the U.S. government’s increased surveillance of its citizens, serving as a backdrop for the events in Civil War.[2]

The series received polarized reviews but was a commercial success. The series is the basis for the upcoming 2016 Marvel Studios film Captain America: Civil War, which likewise will feature Captain America and Iron Man in opposition to each other.[3] A sequel, Civil War II, is set to debut in June 2016.

Civil War è una miniserie a fumetti di sette numeri, scritta da Mark Millar e disegnata da Steve McNiven, pubblicata dalla Marvel Comics. Il primo albo è uscito nel maggio 2006 e si è conclusa, con dei ritardi, nel febbraio 2007.

La miniserie si sviluppa come crossover che coinvolge tutte le testate Marvel, e fa parte di un trittico di grandi eventi del 2006 (insieme a Planet Hulk eAnnihilation). Gli albi coinvolti dalla saga sono contraddistinti dalla grafica di copertina, che prevede una larga banda nella sua metà inferiore.

Civil War (en español Guerra Civil) es una historia en forma de crossover, escrita por el guionista Mark Millar y dibujada por Steve McNiven. Fue publicada originalmente en los Estados Unidos en 2006 por la editorial Marvel Comics. El crossover se desarrolla en siete álbumes, siendo complementada con los distintos arcos argumentales de otras publicaciones habituales de Marvel (exceptuando las líneas Ultimate Marvel y MAX).

La trama gira alrededor de un desastre, una explosión en la cual fallecen más de 600 personas en Stamford, Connecticut, provocada por el personaje Nitro, cuando mantenía una pelea con Namorita a las afueras de una escuela, mientras un camarógrafo filma la batalla; el villano utiliza su superpoder para generar una explosión que destruye casi toda la ciudad. Como respuesta, el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos promulga la “ley de Registro de Superhumanos” obligando a que todos aquellos que posean superpoderes revelen su identidad secreta y trabajen para las autoridades. Los superhéroes se dividen en dos facciones principales, a favor y en contra del Registro. Iron Man encabeza la postura favorable al registro, con el respaldo del Gobierno y la organización S.H.I.E.L.D., mientras que el Capitán América encabeza un movimiento de resistencia clandestino. El crossover logró notoriedad fuera de los medios especializados en la historieta por dos sucesos que tuvieron lugar en el marco del mismo.

El 14 de octubre de 2014 se desveló que Marvel Studios pretende adaptar esta historia en su universo
