Registration is just a policy, and Tony was right to get involved and steer it to a better place than it would.
I just think most fans read Civil War with pre-conditioned 'Captain America is always right' goggles on and couldn't accept that it was more complex than that. Maybe it's because I'm not American and don't feel a patriotic connection to Steve, but to me, Iron Man was, and has been proven right. Dark Reign would have happened earlier if not for Tony.
and now I am just convinced that Punchy is clearly insane.
I fucking hate Captain America. I think Bucky as Cap was the best thing ever, so don't even start with this patriotic loyalty to Steve Rogers shit with me. They played Cap against type (i.e. his patriotic loyalty) to make a point about Patriotism - Civil War was very much about US Foreign Policy at the time, with Superheroes playing the roles of suspected terrorists being persecuted with out any kind of due process. Tony was the villain, he was written that way in every single Marvel book, except for his own book, where they tried to make you understand his view point.
And again at the end of the day. The New Avengers weren't letting bad guys go to settle their beef with the Mighty Avengers. That is what Ms. Marvel and her cronies did.
Dark Reign is what Registration would have been like if a Crazy fucking asshole villain were in charge of it. It is Registration taking to its faulty slippery slope extreme.
