14. Civil War (in its entirety)

Marvel Comics story: Civil War (2006)

There’s no doubt that Captain America: Civil War was a hit. Not only in the box office, but people loved it as well. That said, it pales in comparison to the comic book. It’s not a slight against the movie. You can’t tell the Civil War story in two and a half hours. Something like this can take seasons to cover. Especially if you get into all of the things that happen outside of the fighting.

There’s the story of how Wolverine killed the guy responsible for making Nitro stronger. Why Robbie Baldwin became Penance and how he’s torturing himself. S.H.I.E.L.D. hiring villains to capture heroes, and this is only a few of the dozens of things that went on.

Everything that happened needs to be seen. The battle between the two teams goes deeper than just the physical brawl. Tony Stark manipulated a lot of people into fighting for him. Steve Rogers becomes so obsessed with fighting Stark that he loses sight of why he started this war to begin with. They make this more about each other than the Superhero Registration Act. Civil War could be among the greatest TV stories. People would be talking about this for years.
