Prepare to discover one of Battleworld's most contested domains — where CIVIL WAR never ended! In the Warzone, the conflict over the Superhuman Registration Act reached a climax that tore the country in half — literally. The East became the Iron, with Tony Stark imposing order. The West became the frontier known as the Blue, where Steve Rogers enforces justice. With heroes split between the feuding territories, old friends are now bitter enemies, and families are torn apart. As General Rogers and his allies — including Peter Parker — seek an end to the conflict, President Stark makes a disturbing discovery about the divided nation. When the two figureheads finally meet again, will a historic summit lead to peace at last? SECRET WARS plus CIVIL WAR equals probably not!

"Civil War: Warzones!" Reviews
What if Marvel's Civil War never ended?
Many more heroes died,
history has changed,
and out of the ashes two men rule the divided country. Iron Man rules the East known as the Iron and Captain America rules the West known as the Blue.
Let me start by saying that I strongly disliked Civil War. The characters all behaved in strange angry ways that were far outside their nature and it didn't work out well. I only read this story because my library had the single issues and I was curious if it was better than the original. It was better, but not by much. The explanation behind the events was better than the senseless Civil War.
The thing I appreciated the most was the ending. So many of the Secret Wars miniseries got abrupt Civil War endings that further invalidated the events that were occuring, but Civil War was fortunate to not get the same treatment. More thought seemed to be put into this miniseries than the actually Civil War event. In the end I still have a bad taste in my mouth over the insane actions of the characters in the original Civil War and this miniseries.
2.5 out of 5 stars
This was fine. Not great. Just ok.
It's a high 3 stars. The art was amazing and it's cool how they manage to continue the Civil War storyline, and it stands on its own pretty well because there's barely any tie-in to Secret Wars.
But I didn't like the twist around midway through. I can't go into what it is without spoiling, but I just though "oh....really...?" and groaned. If it was pre-2007 (hint as to what the twist is), it would have been cool.
I keep expecting to find a Secret Wars crossover series I don't like, but so far I've enjoyed them all.
In this one the Civil War has led to a country divided, with Iron Man ruling one side and Captain America the other. It's like taking things one step further than the original Marvel Civil War series did. However, there's another side that's been playing both sides the entire time..
Add in some Lenil Yu artwork and you have a good "untold" Civil War story.
I have to admit, I was very skeptical about all of the crossovers Marvel published for this "event". I still think they may have overdone it volume wise, but as far as quality goes, they have done a superb job of keeping everything entertaining.
As with the other crossovers, I think this one would appeal more to fans of the original Civil War event rather than the new Secret Wars event. If that's you, check this one out.
3.5. Actually a lot better than I expected. & the brief but beautiful life of King Ock is now my favorite thing, ever.
This is a blast, with thrilling art from Lenil Yu to complete the package!
