Heroic Civil War: Team Captain America vs. Team Iron Man Round 1


Captain America: Civil War will be arriving in theaters on Thursday and asks a major question. Are you on Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?

We here at Heroic Hollywood asked ourselves that very question. The results were mixed, much like that of many comic book movie fans. The only way to reach a resolution was to fight it out…with words. Our writers have taken sides and will be explaining why they think you should support their team. First up is Chelsea Lewis representing Team Captain America and Sam Flynn for Team Iron Man. Let the match begin!

Are you looking forward to Civil War? Which side are you supporting? Be sure to comment below and let us know which team you are supporting this round.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

    Wait a minute though, wasn’t Loki a bit of a good guy in Thor 2? I mean, sure he took over as Odin, but he certainly helped defeat the big bad as well.

    • Samuel Patrick Flynn

      It’s true he was more a wild card in that movie than a straight-up villain a la The Avengers but he was still up to his old selfish tricks. Helping to defeat the Big Bad allowed him to avenge his mother, fake his death and take over Asgard from Odin.

    On Flynn’s Saving Lives tangent about the body count numbers, 9/11 didn’t have actual super heroes saving lives. If the likes of the Avengers had existed and were around for 9/11, there is a huge chance things would have been different. It does seem like a low number but you have to weigh in the impact the Avengers had saving all those lives.

    • Samuel Patrick Flynn

      The Avengers factor would probably help lessen the body count but the amount of destruction seemed so huge (multiple buildings, alien soldiers etc.) that it still seems disproportionate, at least to me. Good point to raise, thanks for commenting!

        True. And it’s still hard to imagine how they sat down and came up with that number. I don’t live in NY and have never been. I live south of Memphis, TN. I’ve never seen a population like that of NY. But you have to imagine if 100’s or 1000’s of Chitauri alien soldiers dropped out of a wormhole into the busy streets of NY, way more than a couple hundred people would’ve been killed.
