Top Five Continuity Conflicts from Marvel’s Civil War

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve done over the years.

A major issue that happened with Marvel’s smash hit 2006 crossover is that the main series, written by Mark Millar and drawn by Steve McNiven and Dexter Vines, told one story while the tie-in books would often tell their own stories, which would often conflict with what the main series did.

In Civil War #5, Iron Man explains to Spider-Man what the deal is with the Negative Zone prison they have for superhuman violators of the Superhuman Registration Act…

While in Amazing Spider-Man #535 (by J. Michael Straczynski and Ron Garney), Iron Man tells Spider-Man to exact opposite…
