8. CAPTAIN AMERICA VS. IRON MAN IN CIVIL WAR #7 (2007)

Captain America is the sentinel of liberty. He takes his job very seriously and views himself as a symbol of everything that is right in the world. Iron Man is a womanizing drunk with a little black book about as thick as most phone books.

Since the beginning, fans knew these two were destined to battle it out, and Marvel’s Civil War provided an epic backdrop for the brawl. Featuring the two icons on opposite sides of a heated political debate, this battle was one of the most personal and destructive in Marvel history.

And while no clear winner was crowned by the end, this fight is perhaps most famous for Captain America’s abrupt surrender mid-battle to the U.S. government and subsequent assassination shortly afterwards.
