* UnfortunateImplications: As Linkara pointed out during his [[http://channelawesome.com/15-things-wrong-with-marvels-civil-war-at4w/ "15 Things Wrong with Marvel's Civil War" video]] (at point 6), the prominent casualty of an event named ''Civil War'' is a black guy....killed by a blond, blue-eyed guy based on Nordic Mythology [[note]]Norse mythos being the core mythos for the North ''German''ic[[/note]] and his body gets wrapped up in chains afterwards. What's worse? [[https://youtu.be/q_iCAivfGsg?t=21m7s Said blondie]] was cloned from the original Thor to act as a, for lack of a better term, ''slave''. In the same review, Linkara was also struck speechless by Tony saying that the Thor clone acted like any police officer would - that is, he immediately shot to kill against a black man. Given that several race riots have erupted because police officers acted like that against minorities... yeah, [[HarsherInHindsight that defense didn't age well]].

** Likewise, the ending. Needless to say, an ending where superheroes essentially become militarised attaches to the US government being treated as a ''good thing'' was...more acceptable back in 2007. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Let's leave it at that.]]

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: As [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] pointed out, Maria Hill's behavior (especially towards Cap) would've been excellent {{Foreshadowing}} for ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'', where Hill could've been revealed as a disguised Skrull agent. Instead, she's not at all affiliated with the Skrulls and was just being a jumpy {{Jerkass}}.

*** Of course, Black Lives Matter has its share of crazies as well, which causes people to point them out when they do insane stuff like the sniper in Dallas. Then you have Antifa, whose actions have recently been declared a form of domestic terrorism (while an entire state has declared the entire organization to be domestic terrorists), and has been at the forefront of arguments why police ''need'' to be empowered to use lethal force when necessary. This just makes the entire conversation that much more harsh after the fact, as both sides genuinely have a point, and neither is entirely wrong, despite where you might have stood on the issue of Superhuman Registration.

Added DiffLines:

* CommonKnowledge:
** A common misunderstanding of ''Civil War'' is that registering may mean revealing the secret identity to all the public and becoming vulnerable to attacks from super villains. In fact, they were only legally required to reveal their identities to the state, '''not''' the public. Spider-Man took things a step forward as a gesture of support to Stark.
** Civil War is often cited in the media, and other Marvel comics, as why Steve died in Captain America #25. However, he was assassinated by the Red Skull's henchmen in a scheme unrelated to the conflict. The only connection was that Cap's arrest at the end of Civil War put him in the location of his death.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Needless to say, much of the politics dealt with in the event have not aged well. The frequent allusions to the Pro-Reg side operating more like police officers is especially cringe-inducing, since later controversies in the mid-2010's have lead to the US police being heavily scrutinized and painted in a negative light by various sectors the public. Though recent behavior by the likes of Antifa and people of various colors becoming a/an 'x nationalist' or whatever, have not helped to ''quell'' this kind of argument. Sadly this also doesn't help how this argument is taken by people on different sides of the issue in the real world, let alone whether you were pro or anti registration when the series came out.
