Read the Superhero Registration Act causing so much trouble in Captain America: Civil War

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

In Captain America: Civil War, the greatest threat facing Earth's Mightiest Heroes is paperwork.

Specifically, it's the super-person registration act the United Nations imposed after the Avengers toe up New York in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. So they're all expected to sign the "Sokovia Accords," of which GamesRadar got a copy. It's included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Box Set.

Here's the agreement:

Sheesh! Can we get Matt Murdock to look at this first? That is one broad piece of contract law right there. "No longer operate freely or unregulated?" Does that mean Hawkeye couldn't, I dunno, participate in an archery contest for charity? On second thought, I take that back, no one cares what Hawkeye does. But no wonder Steve Rogers told the U.N. to stick it.

Captain America: Civil War got its first trailer last week, and the film premieres May 6, 2016.
