captain america vs iron man fight video SR Pick [Video]: Captain America vs. Iron Man

One of the biggest comic book events in recent history was that of Marvel’s Civil War story arc which took place between 2006-2007, building on several major crossovers that came before it. The plot revolved around the implementation of the Superhuman Registration Act which caused a split between Marvel’s heroes (and some villains) and spawned a small war between what would normally be our favorite heroes working together.

This caused in-fighting amongst the Fantastic Four, it forced Spider-Man to be torn between the two sides and reveal his identity and most notably, it caused the separation between Captain America and Iron Man.

The tagline for this event was rightfully “Whose Side Are You On?” and you had to pick between Iron Man being for the registration act or with Captain America and his underground resistance being against the act.

The story hit mainstream news outlets around the world when it concluded with the death of Captain America. But before that occurred, one of the most memorable scenes in the story was when the two sides met at a petrochemical plant in Civil War: Part Three. It was a trap set by Tony Stark and Captain America allowed him one last chance to convince him before shaking his hand. Little did Stark know that Cap has a little device on his glove that scrambled Iron Man’s suit and launched the two groups of heroes into a brawl.

The fight between Captain America and Iron Man was retold in this video:

Once you get into it past the first 30 seconds, it’s actually pretty amazing. The shots and fight choreography are very well done and if the stop-motion was only a little smoother, it really would be amazing.

So, which side are you on?

  1. Captain America all the way. Iron man did some really underhanded things in the Civil War series.

  2. Awesome choreography! Makes me excited to see what fight scenes Whedon will come up with for The Avengers….

  3. This looks very hard to do, I’m impressed. And really?: The arresting officer and the paramedic were Barricade and Ratchett! Pretty fun cross-over

  4. Its amazing that this guy can orchestrate a well made fight sequence, and a fight sequence to story has been leading up to, to make it epic, yet, in actual hollywood films they are lackluster.
    Best example, the first Iron Man film.
    I know there are budget constraints, time, etc., but you have to deliver at the end.

  5. The pizza boxes are a nice touch.

  6. I loved it when after the Civil War, the real Thor finally returned to Marvel and laid the smackdown to Ironman for creating a Thor clone (Clor) that killed another superhero.

    Thor 2011. I can’t wait!!!!!!!

  7. CAPTAIN AMERICA IS BAD ***! Him winning the fight then giving up because he sees what it has become just proves that he stands for everything that is good. He is a true HERO!!!

    • I think Captain America is a little late to notice that, after so many have already died because of his the civil war.

  8. lmfao some iron man moves look like michael jackson stuff.

  9. Hey! in Iron Man 2 tony is the one who is creating Captain America’s shield. So if Iron Man wins or loses against Captain America either way he wins.
