I always had two problems with Civil War, I think.

The first is that, I don't get the "Government is trying to infringe on our liberties" angle. There's no constitutionally-protected right to put on a mask and kick a guy—vigilantism has always been a crime. Spider-man has kept his identity secret for so many years because he is, technically, a criminal. Did these guys not know this?

The other thing is that, for the most part, don't most Marvel heroes already have public identities? The Avengers have all been out for years, there's never been any question about who the X-Men really were, the Fantastic Four are already employed by the government, Dr. Strange is in the phone book for god's sake. Aren't Spider-Man and Daredevil the only two real costumed vigilantes around anymore?
