The RevNews coverage of all things Captain America: Civil War continues! In this new episode, host Gary Mitchel calls in the world’s foremost Flash fan and comics expert Shaun Rosado to discuss the epic comics event, and all its related series, which has inspired the movie!

Tune in as they explain why this movie may be the closest the MCU will come to the actual comics; a bit of history of The Avengers in comics along with everything going on in comics & the real world that influenced this epic event; the differences in how MARVEL handles a recalibration vs how DC does it; what started the Civil war & the two sides’ arguments; what the series did to Tony Stark as a character & how Movie Tony and Comics Tony differ; how all the character moments seem to be in the side-books and the BIG moments are in the main book; which side Gary and Shaun are on; where Shaun thinks all the villains were while the heroes fought; the final fight that ended the war, the denouement, the lingering aftermath & how it affected the MAREL Comics Universe for the next few years; and what they consider to be essential (and NON-essential) reading for the event.
