ComicBook/CaptainAmerica refuses to register and hunt renegade heroes, then forms the Secret Avengers, an underground organization that resists the Act. The Comicbook/XMen declare the whole mess [[BystanderSyndrome someone else's problem]] (Although they do point out that following ''House of M'', there simply aren't enough mutants in the world to get involved), and Tony "ComicBook/IronMan" Stark leads a SHIELD force to help capture all renegade metahumans, hero or villain. The US government, with Stark's concurrence, also puts together a task force of supervillains - the New {{Thunderbolts}} - for the purpose of hunting down unregistered metahumans. Some of the most psychopathic and violent villains imaginable (including notables like Bullseye and Venom) are, against all sense, released back onto the streets for the government-sanctioned hunting down of and crippling of unregistered heroes. (Also against all sense, the government hires {{Deadpool}} for similar duties.)

* ToCatchHeroesHireVillains: They empowered the ''{{Thunderbolts}}'' to go after heroes who refused registration. Thunderbolts under the command of ComicBook/NormanOsborn. Including Bullseye, whose personal body count is probably well in excess of those killed in the Stanford explosion. To their credit, the pro-registration side does attempt to keep the Thunderbolts on a tight leash.

* DiabolusExMachina: In-Universe, Iron Man made a timeline of the war. He pointed that there were many key moments that could have been an end for the war, but instead kept it going on. Some of those events (such as the neutrality of the X-Men, or the death of Black Goliath) are actually plausible, but many others (such as the big explosion at the Baxter Building, and the death of Miriam Sharpe) seem so weird and unexpected, that it has to be the result of someone manipulating them to keep the war going on.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: The premise of this alternate version is that the civil war has never ended. And the present-day action of the first issue starts with... peace negotiations? No surprise, things got screwed.

* TheMeddlingKidsAreUseless: Civil War included a crossover between the Runaways and the Young Avengers. The Runaways simply mind their own business, and the Young Avengers fail to recruit them. Their little adventure had no actual effect over the civil war itself.

* PrescienceByAnalysis: Reed Richards, from the Fantastic Four, supports Iron Man: his maths prove that lack of oversight would lead to several world-destroying disasters. This is explored even further in the Fantastic Four's own comic, where Richards and the Mad Thinker compare notes. The Mad Thinker grants that Richards' equations are far more advanced than those he could come up with, but, as he had done himself in the past, Richards committed the grave mistake of ignoring the "human factor". By being so focused on his equations, he ignored the Invisible Woman's viewpoint, who then left him to join Cap's resistance.

* TakeAThirdOption: America is divided in two countries, divided by a chasm, and all the Americans had to decide in which country would they live. Miriam Sharpe preferred instead to live in a house built over a bridge that crosses the chasm.
