2006 gave us one of my favorite hero comics series since I started collecting, Marvel's "Civil War." For those of you who aren't familiar, the story was written by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and begins with a tragedy at the hands of a group of amateur heroes resulting in the deaths of civilians. In response the United States government requires the registration of all superheroes. The ensuing events cause a rift in the hero community, some siding with the government and registration, while others form a rebellion to maintain their freedom and anonymity. 

If you haven't read it, I suggest you pick it up. It has also been translated into novel form if that's your bag. I've read both and enjoyed each iteration. Today Marvel dropped a vague announcement on us by way of a picture and a date. 


Is this a sequel, a reboot, or something else? At this point we don't know. What we do know is that Marvel has plans to revisit the arc both on the page and in the cinematic universe, color me excited.
