Life couldn't be more complicated - or more dangerous - for Peter Parker. After rushing to the aftermath of the Stamford Massacre to offer aid to its victims, Peter travels with Tony Stark to Washington, D.C., and the White House - where the enactment of the Super Hero Registration Act appears imminent. As the Marvel Universe braces for the implications of legislation that will forever change the societal status of super heroes, Peter is forced to make an important personal decision - maybe the most important decision of his life. As Civil War tears apart the super hero community, will Spidey stay true to that decision?

This book is the one that was on the news during the Civil War run with Spiderman exposing his weakness to the world. This book is the best part of Civil War as it shows the toll on the life of one of the most loved and hated heroes of New York. It is the most personal and moving of the side stories with Civil War and fill in the most gaps of the story.

Om goodness I love the civil war crossover series, and I really like Spiderman and Iron Man, so of course I loved this part of the civil war series. A lot of people say that they don't like theese books because the don't have sufficient plots, but I think they're wrong. The creaters really show a lot of effort in the plot. The artwork is phenominal too. And this is coming from a fourteen year old girl...

For a tie-in to Civil War, this is pretty good. JMS is, naturally, great at writing Spiderman. The art was good as well. I would say, this is more of a Peter Parker book than Spiderman (though there is it's fair shair of action.) The ending is thrilling as well. The problems of this book is that some KEY parts of the story that appears in Civil War instead of ASM. Plus, it seems like Peter really kisses *-$%'s (I won't be a spoiler. Read it to find out.) butt in the beginning. Personally, I think it is good.

Kept me intrested and entertained until the last page. This book made me love spideman so much I went to broadway and watched the spideman play.

The basic theme of this is similar to Martin Luther King's "Letter From a Birmingham Jail," except it's super heroes' rights. How do we respond to unjust laws? The problem is the crossover stuff is a marketing ploy, and the reader can't get the whole story from this book. In fact, this book doesn't even have an ending to its story arc.

I thought that this trade got off to a good start, but it fell flat for me after a while.My first gripe is the "tune in to Civil War #_ to see what happens next!" stuff, which happened three or four times in the story. Now, I've read the Civil War event, so I knew what went on and didn't really miss anything, but I hate when a book, even if it's a collection of comics, doesn't give you a complete story - especially when it's a ploy to make you buy other books so you'll have the complete story.Another gripe of mine was the fact that this book didn't have a good ending; in fact, I don't think it had an ending at all. Yes, I know that comics are (generally) on-going stories, but there is a definite end of the story arc. The result of the Civil War event isn't mentioned and is deliberately left as a cliffhanger, in an effort to make readers buy more books for the complete story.Another gripe of mine is that this trade sets up the controversial "One More Day" storyline, which is the reason why I do not read Spider-Man comics past that arc.Iron Man is portrayed as an ideology-crazed idiot who is perfectly okay with throwing his long-time friends into a horrible prison without due process simply because they refuse to register, but that doesn't seem too far off from how Tony was portrayed in the Civil War event itself (not that I agree with that characterization, but it wasn't J. Michael Straczynski driving that one). And the art isn't bad.
