Civil War is an American comic book published by Marvel Comics. The story, written by Mark Millar and pencilled by Steve McNiven
After the death of hundreds of innocent civilians caught in a battle between the New Warriors and Nitro, the government passes into law the Super Human Registration Act – thus sparking the first ever superhero civil war! With every hero rallying behind either Iron Man’s pro-registration forces or Captain America’s opposition, brothers-in-arms become sworn enemies!
In a battle between Nitro and the New Warriors, Nitro exploded, seemingly killing the entire team and a huge number of civilians (including 60 school children nearby). This led the United States government to introduce a “Living Weapon of Mass Destruction” registry for all super-powered individuals. Most heroes were divided on the issue, and a Civil War ensued.
