    Honestly I chose the side of Captain America, but I shall not spoil why. However I will say has comic books go the Marvel Universe spoke to me more than the rest. Since they touched base on Racism and how people react to those with powers. In the DC world at the time everyone was happy to see heroes and never questioned their power. Marvel was more believable on how society would act towards people that are different.

      From what I know about Civil War, I’ll probably end up in camp Cap as well. But I’m very interested in seeing how the conflict starts and escalates.
      While I do find myself more attracted to the Marvel Universe, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like DC. But in DC I’m more about the villains. There are some fantastic and twisted bad guys there that I actually like more than the heroes.
      I also think Marvel has done a good thing with having society sceptical towards heroes. I think that makes the situation more relatable to us readers as I’m sure most of us have had experiences with feeling like outsiders to some degree.

    Civil War has always been one of my favorites. I’ve been reading mostly Marvel comics since the early 90s. Personally I find it hard to recommend comics, since a lot of it has to do with your personal tastes and writing styles you may enjoy (for example Civil War was written by Mark Millar, who also wrote Old Man Logan and Kick Ass). There’s also more street level teams, space, etc. It might be more fun to just jump in and read whatever interests you the most 🙂 Good luck!

      Thank you for your input!
      I think you have a good point about it being down to personal taste. The Marvel Universe is so big that there is bound to be characters and/or storylines that you don’t like as much as others. That is one of the reasons I decided to start with a big crossover. I can get introduced to new characters and explore their storylines if I enjoy them.
