Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Two parallel story lines are merged in the compilation Civil War: X-Men Universe, both of which deal with the controversial Superhuman Registration Act -- an initiative that, after the world-altering events of the House of M, was passed into law to enforce the mandatory registration of super-powered individuals with the government. But the issue has the mutant community bitterly divided and an all-out civil war is looming…

Enter Deadpool, the wisecracking masked mutant antihero who has taken a job with "the gov" as a renegade superhero hunter. At the top of Deadpool's list is the butt-kicking Cable, who is actively aiding in the concealment of outlaw superheroes. Deadpool's mission is simple: "Take Cable down -- dead or alive!" But after a knock-down, drag-out battle that begins inside the White House and ends inside Deadpool's Manhattan apartment, both combatants come to an unlikely realization. Meanwhile, the Superhuman Registration Act has bitterly divided X-Factor and has the team of superheroes on the verge of disbanding. And to complicate matters, Quicksilver (the son of the mutant super-villain Magneto) reappears offering "treatments" to former mutants - but what exactly are his motives?

Fans of Marvel's massive Civil War story line will find this omnibus classic Marvel Comics fare incredibly fast-paced, action-packed, and densely plotted, with the standard sardonic pop culture references (Backstreet Boys, etc.) and political and societal allegories throughout. Paul Goat Allen
