Marvel’s Civil War II a.k.a just what the fuck, man
So if you have been reading Marvel lately, you should know that it is all about the Civil War II. What used to be a shameless plug-in for the movie became an universe spanning event that yet again, places heroes versus heroes. The issue is not that we have heroes fighting other heroes. I am cool with that because some “heroes” are only heroes in name only. However, this event has become an example of “there is no way in hell this person with this stance can ever be considered a good functional person.”
“The “Supreme Power” Nighthawk has appeared a number of times both as a solo vigilante and alongside the super heroes from his reality, but thanks to the events of Marvel’s “Secret Wars” event, that Kyle Richmond’s Earth is no more. Nighthawk isn’t interested in just seeing the sights, however. He still hears the same heroic calling, and he’s decided to protect the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe from all threats – and by any means necessary.
He’ll first do that as a member of December’s “Squadron Supreme” seres by James Robinson and Leonard Kirk, and next year he’ll fly solo in an all-new “Nighthawk” series by writer David Walker and an artist to be determined, which finds their title character plying his signature brand of bloody justice on the criminals of Chicago…
‘In the universe he came from there was a handful of super powered people, the world was always in some kind of crisis, crime was running rampant, and there was corruption everywhere. Now he’s in the new Marvel Universe where it’s like you can’t throw a rock and not hit a super hero in the head, and yet this world is worse off.
So a lot of it is him trying to reconcile why it’s worse off and looking at sort of systems of corruption and systems of oppression and how those impact the community that he’s most strongly connected to.’ - David Walker
