Trivia / Civil War

  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: 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.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • This is the storyline that led many fans to call Tony Stark 'Der Eisenfuhrer'.
    • The Marvel brass really regretted not giving the Thor clone an official name right away, since the fans' decision to label it "Clor" seemed to irk them. Marvel later on named it "Ragnarok." Fans still call it Clor.
  • Follow the Leader: The scene where Sally Floyd breaks Captain America by asking him about American pop culture has been compared with a similar scene from the Green Lantern / Green Arrow comic book of the '70s.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Civil War was written in the aftermath of the 9/11, the reaction of the Bush administration, and the "War on terror".
  • What Could Have Been: Mark Millar and Brian Hitch were working on a story for The Ultimates called Civil War. Then Millar got the chance to write Marvel's crisis crossover of the year, so he declined that project, and adapted some of his ideas to the main comic book we have read.
