PRELUDE TO CIVIL WAR MONTH PART 4: CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR IN VIDEO GAMES. WHO REALLY WON?

Over this past month I’ve now looked at three versions of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 that have all addressed the Civil War conflict. Prior to the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, and even the story in the comics from Mark Millar, Captain America and Iron Man have been battling in video games and continue to do so even today. To close out the month, I’m going to perform a break down of all the fighting games to feature both Cap and Iron Man and their respective teams as they will appear in next week’s Captain America: Civil War. To reiterate the rules: Each game will receive one point for either side if they feature just Captain America and Iron Man. They will receive additional points for each additional playable character they have who is on a side in Captain America: Civil War. Multiple versions of characters in a game, such as Iron Man and Hulkbuster Iron Man for example, will not be counted for multiple points The team break down again is as follows:

TEAM CAP: Captain America, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch

TEAM IRON MAN: Iron Man, Black Panther, Black Widow, Vision, War Machine
