But previews of the upcoming Invincible Iron Man #7 indicates that it may be a very different fight indeed.
We start with some gorgeous Mike Deodato artwork, the starkness (gettit) of the white panels borderds and personal action inside against the mighty shots of the city from above and the powered War Machine suit are really impressive.
Clearly Civil War II will be a comic looking at the effect of technology on labour, how manual skills are being destroyed, leading to the downtrodden working classes and underclassed being increasingly joined by the middle classes, with a new uber elite of financiers and technologists.
Or, you know, not.
