Miss Tracey has added another popular book to the library’s graphic novel collection in the reference area: Mark Millar’s Civil War.  The book raises the question of should super heroes have to register their true identities as public information and undergo government sponsored training in order to fight crime? Iron Man believes this is a good policy and Spider-Man immediately reveals his identity to the world.  Captain America feels the policy infringes on  individual liberty and opposes it. The heroic family known as the Fantastic Four is split as members disagree about the validity of the new policy.  Can anyone truly win when super heroes go to war?   What can Spider-Man do when he regrets revealing his name to the world and changes sides in the dispute?  These questions are answered in the new book available downstairs at your Marion Library!

(Spoiler alert : Spider-Man’s wife Mary Jane Watson makes an infernal deal that erases  all memory of her husband’s  true identity as Peter Parker from the world…at the cost of their marriage being eliminated from history as well! This move allowed writers to once again depict Peter as a somewhat younger and single man which they believed would lead to more story ideas than maintaining his previous status as a married man.)
