* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: All over the place. One humorous one is that Captain America isn't shamed into silence by Sally Floyd's interview but simply too stunned by how stupid she's sounding to respond.

** Sally Floyd's supposedly ArmorPiercingQuestion "What is MySpace?" would be just as baffling to most people in the U.S. today.

* OneSceneWonder: The crossover generated a big upswing in interest in [[IncredibleHercules Hercules]] (kicking off what would turn out to be a few very good years for him), in a series of moments that amount to about six pages.

** The whole registration conflict, considering Captain America, Iron Man, and most of the other Avengers start out as government-registered heroes in the [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate universe]].

** In anti-reg books, SHIELD [[MutantDraftBoard forcibly conscripted anyone who happened to have any kind of superpowers]] whether they wanted to fight crime or not, and the pro-reg heroes were {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s. When {{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}} said he just was going to not use his powers and stay out of it, armed gunmen showed up at his door on midnight of the day the act went into effect. In ''ComicBook/AvengersTheInitiative'', kids recruited were told that they either join the initiative, get their powers taken, or go to jail. Cloud 9, whose power was a little cloud that could make her fly, was recruited, turned into a sniper and sent to killing missions, even though she never wanted to use her power for crimefighting. In addition, Stark orchestrated an attack on ComicBook/BlackPanther, foreign chief of state, because his wife (who had diplomatic immunity) refused to sign up. It was quite clearly a case of "work for us or else".

** In "What If Civil War 1", Iron Man died during the Extremis arc, and Captain America led all the heroes against the Registration act. The law was enforced by Gyrich, Hill, Jim Rhodes, and their armies of Sentinels and mechanical Thors. Jim Rhodes negotiated an agreement with Captain America, but a traitor standing in the shadows told it to Gyrich, and they were both killed. Who was the traitor? Come on... as if you didn't saw it coming.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Like [[ComicBook/WorldWarHulk two other]] [[ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen crisis crossovers]] that would later followed, this story focuses on superheroes fighting each others rather than supervillains. Some characters act seriously against their established characterizations. It's pointed out ''inside the story'' by Dr Strange that nobody really is right or wrong in this, meaning it can be hard to decide who to root for. And finally, it ends on a rather dark note, with [[spoiler:''[[ThePagaron Captain America]]'' being arrested and assassinated while anti-registration superheroes ''still'' are operating against the law, giving you the impression nothing really was accomplished]]. You could be excused to stop caring in these conditions.

changing that to a slightly more objective and appropriate description.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: It's such a poorly handled story full of characters acting so out of character that after a while you really just can't be bothered to care.

** Then there's the story itself. There is a huge range of opinions from Marvel fans and casual readers alike on whether the arc is excellent, terrible or [[SoOkItsAverage simply OK]].
