I wonder how carefully Marvel's legal offices read this series. I also wonder what inspired DC to release something that's not even parody, just a very, very lightly adapted version of Marvel's Civil War. That aside, there are indeed some interesting storytelling moments, but not enough to make me like the book as a whole.
