    Iron Man was right. Bucky isn’t worth all the trouble.

  2. Matthew D says:

    Captain America is right

  3. Kody B. says:

    Captain America is always right.

  4. David K says:

    I still believe Captain America is right. Things usually don’t go right when a big government bureaucracy gets involved.

  5. Levi Kangas says:

    I still side with Iron Man though which side was more “right” is a matter of opinion.

  6. Leisa Winrich says:

    The Russo brothers are right. They wanted to make a film that left people still wanting to debate who was right and who side are they on.

  7. Serena Powell says:

    I still side with Captain.

    The Russo Brothers did a great job of presenting the movie so that neither side ends up being right or wrong, which gives the audience something to talk about, which we are 🙂 I’m not sure the Sokovia Accords could be amended enough to allow “Imminent Danger.” How would the Crossbones mission have gone? The UN committee would have to look at the evidence and allow The Avengers to stake out the police station (because that’s what the evidence showed as the next target). But when the mission objective changes like it did and the target changes, would The Avengers have to contact a UN liaison asking for permission? And if not, would the Sokovia Accords protect The Avengers from the resulting collateral damage? These missions against enhanced villains are too fluid for full oversight by a committee.

    I understand Tony’s reasoning, and don’t fault him for it, but I’m still Team Cap. Would I be Team Scarlet? I think so? The principle remains the same, but I will admit that I trust Cap more than Scarlet Witch just because she’s still learning to control her powers and Cap is older and wiser.

    Sidenote: Scarlet Witch had nothing to do with The Battle of New York. She caused Hulk to smash Johannesburg.

      I see your points. If you haven’t read David’s article on the site, I would highly recommend reading it ( . He seems to be in agreement with you.

      When I think about the involvement of the UN in the missions, and how it would have changed the Lagos mission, a couple things come to mind:

      If the UN sanctioned this mission, I would imagine they would have the permissions to take down who/what they need to. If the same situation happened, at least now this is a UN sanctioned mission, which means that Nigeria, and the other UN countries aren’t going to be getting irritated by a foreign group coming in and meddling–they would have wanted the Avengers there.

      The other thing that could happen is that the UN doesn’t sanction this mission, and leaves it to the “proper” authorities. This might be dangerous, as this chemical weapon might end up in the wrong hands, but at the same time, the UN probably has tasks forces that are adept in dealing in these sort of situations, and might reduce the loss of life significantly.

      Again, I agree with you in how this movie has made a fun conversation. All opinions on this are valid, and it is great that this movie has allowed us to take sides, and debate it out!

    2. Joshua Krueger says:

      Also, thanks for the update on the city the Hulk smashed! I don’t know why I assumed it was New York. It has been a while since I seen the movie, and I guess I just made a bad assumption. It is fixed now!

    3. David D says:

      That’s a great point! I’ve seen the movie 3 times, and it just now clicked that the original target was suspected to be the police station, but the situation changed when they realized that the IID was actually the target.

      You also have to take into account that the MCU isn’t our world as we know it. This is a world in which superheroes and super villains with super powers actually exist, and that changes the game. I think it’s great to work together with the UN and utilize each others resources, but sometimes you just have to let superheroes be superheroes and trust in them to do their superhero thing. It’s a little arrogant for politicians and regular people to think they know how best to handle situations involving super villains than the actual superheroes.

      Then again, this whole discussion is basically regular people (us) discussing how best to handle situations involving superheroes and super villains and how they should be utilized, so what do I know?

    Im still team iron man all the way. I think Tony was right to some extent kind of how like shield keeps or (used to keep)the avengers in the dark about certain missions, like in cap 2. And in avengers where Fury, wasn’t telling them the about the big picture till Tony found out. i mean he is still the brains and cap is the heart hulk is the muscle etc. Its a combined effort and we need every soldier. By the way, Is it just me or doesnt it look like we need Shield back? Then we wouldn’t have our teams fighting against each other.

  10. Emily says:

    Cap was always right.

  11. Tim says:

    Enter the Sentinels…
    Oops, wrong franchise.
    I’m Team Spider-man. He just does what he thinks is right.

  12. Christopher says:

    In this certain situation.
    Stark was right

  13. Heather Adams says:

    They were both right for different reasons. I agree with Cap more, but it was selfish for him to fight everyone. He was trying to protect his best friend which I can understand. He did hurt Tony in the process which made me upset. I’m actually team Peggy, but I think I side with Cap on this one.
