I Don’t Need Your Civil War!

I don’t need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin’ soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain’t that fresh
I don’t need your civil war

Vector master, Orlando Arocena, returns with his take on Marvel’s “Civil War” event! As all comic nerds (myself included) know, Civil War was a 7-part miniseries in which Captain America (anti-hero registration act) and his assembled forces fought Tony Stark (pro-hero registration act) and those on his side. It was hero against hero. Some lived, some died and Spider-Man outed his identity to the world media!
