Watch: Marvel's 'Civil War' explained in just four minutes

If you're a bit hazy on the details of Civil War, the 2006-2007 Marvel comics crossover that unfolded across more than 50 issues and inspired the upcoming Captain America sequel, fear not: "Bite Size Comics" manages to summarize the event in less than four minutes, which it turns out is plenty of time to insert some biting commentary.

For instance, Civil War is introduced as "a convoluted tale of friendship, betrayal and the complete character assassination of Iron Man," which ... OK, it's tough to argue with that assessment.
