Okay, so Marvel wants to bring more realism to comics.
Hence Civil War and now the Initiative. For those of you who don't know the initiative so the idea that the Marvel U.S. with the help of Reed Richards, Hank Pym and Tony Stark is creating a goverment funded and endorsed super-team for each state. I want to know who's footing the bill for 50+ super-teams (we can leave out Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories). The start-up and maintenance has to be astronomical. Creating heroes, building cutting edge HQ's & transports, Rebuilding and replacing said HQ's & transports--Hell, replacing the heroes. The initiative would die with the first tax hike in the real world. Yeah, brilliant idea Marvel.
