Like any other thing you search on Google, or your default browser, you would come across different information at once – reviews, highlights, character insights, etc. That includes a comment that calling the movie, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers 2.5!

Marvel Comics Jam-Packed Blockbuster Whacked it Again!

Marvel Comics fanatics would get that right away – that there were so many superheroes present in this movie. Apparently, there are more Avengers than you think there possibly is. So, for the benefit of those who have only met Captain America and the Avengers in the movies in the recent years, let me jumpstart your research a bit.

The plot of this movie revolves around a feud between two heroes, Captain America (Steve Rogers) and you guessed it right, Iron Man aka Tony Starks. This was nothing personal, really, but more of a political and somehow moral debate regarding an act proposed for superhumans to register, reveal their identities to the government, undergo training and get paid.

Well, heroes have their own opinions, too. They took sides. Captain America was against it, while Iron Man would like to give it a shot. Other heroes in the movie were later on divided into teams, team Captain America and team Iron Man.

In this article, let’s meet Iron Man’s teammates.


  1. War Machine

We first came across Rhodey on a 1979 Marvel Comics when he met Iron Man and helped him survive the war. He was personally hired by Starks as his personal pilot on the same comic edition. He, then, first appeared as War Machine 13 years later.

  1. Black Widow

Natasha Romanoff debuted in Tales of Suspense, 1952. Her hair colored change to red in Amazing Spider-Man # 86.

When she first appeared in the comics, she was an adversary to Iron Man and became an Avenger a few appearances later.

  1. Black Panther

T’Challa debuted in b, 1966. He is the first black superhero to appear in comics.

T’Challa fell in love with the young Ororo Munroe (Storm, X-men/Avengers/Fantastic Four) during their younger years, have loved singer Monica Lynne for the longest time but married Storm in Wakanda years later.

  1. The Vision

He debuted on Avengers in 1968 and was apparently made of 1/2 Human Torch. He can change his density anytime he pleases. He died in the comics and was later to be recovered and finally repaired by Iron Man in Age of Ultron.

  1. Spiderman

Yes you heard it right. Spider-man first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1962, in response to the huge success of Fantastic Four and public demand for another superhero to read on.


His alter ego is Peter Parker, who also had his share of coming-of-age in the comics through the years. We first knew him as a nerd in high school, and his character developed thereafter.

Apparently, he was invited to join the Avengers in the 1960s and 80s but refused both invitations. He became a New Avenger in 1991 but officially joined Avengers around 2010.

Blockbuster All the Way | Respect to the Rest

The movie deserved to be called a blockbuster. It contained all the elements of it kind. The over-hauling of action based movies (plenty in numbers) isn’t new. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice the one that kick-started the trend demonstrated the point stated. The new tactic of big movie production houses seems to bring big earnings(reference above) in the box office this season with killer casts and risky blending of heroes. Even though some people are sicked in a way and they’re feeling ‘spammed’ by the fast pace of movies being produced, it’s interesting what’s to come in 2017.

  1. The idea of this Civil War is ridiculous. If The Avengers didn’t tried to be careful, a lot more people are going to die. Civil War just doesn’t make sense.
