Welcome to another episode of ComicNoobs! This week, we jump back into Civil War II as Marvel’s summer event heats up! We cover the first two issues of the X-Men tie-in book that pits Storm’s Extraordinary X-Men against Magneto’s Uncanny X-Men. The teams are divided by the question of the Inhumans; Are they enemies? Will Ulysses be used against the mutants? Can the X-Men afford to wait and find out? Find out in this episode! After that, we have another Who Would Win debate, as James Gavsie joins me to argue Black Panther vs Bane, featuring special guest moderator Dexter Arnold of the “Let’s Get Drunk and Talk Comics” Podcast (link below)! Finally, we get to Civil War II issue #4. Captain Marvel has the support of SHIELD, The Ultimates, and the Inhumans as she expands the reach and scope of her program to use the Inhuman Ulysses to prevent threats before they manifest.
