Divided We Fall
One year after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, another international incident involving theAvengers resulting in collateral damage occurs, prompting politicians to form a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to call in the team. When Steve Rogers attempts to protect his friend Bucky Barnes from this act, he is brought into conflict with Tony Stark. This results in the fracturing of the Avengers into two opposing factions — one led by Rogers, who wishes to operate without regulation, and the other by Stark, who supports government oversight — while the world is threatened by a new enemy.

TONY STARK: Sometimes I wanna punch you in your perfect teeth.
STEVE ROGERS: I was wrong about you. Whole world is wrong about you.
