The Random Writings of Rachel: When A Family Argument Turns Into a Civil War

When A Family Argument Turns Into a Civil War

We have a family full of superhero fans. It's funny how many productive conversations can be held on the topic of: "Who is better, Captain America or Thor?"

The five sisters on this side of the globe went out to see Captain America: Civil War on Wednesday night, and promptly made a video of our own version of the war on Thursday. Something about a whole lot of people who ought to be best friends fighting it out dramatically instead of just sitting down and talking civilly about the situation felt vaguely familiar for this large family.

For clarity's sake, I'm Wanda, (big) Anna is Captain America, Sarah is Ant-Man, and the other side seems to be a mixture of various superhero personalities, all of them fierce and sword-wielding.

We even figured out the true reason behind why Thor and Hulk weren't in the trailer.



Who's your favorite Avenger?

  1. I don't know much about this, but I love the metaphor of super hero rivalries and family arguments. Very clever.

  3. Okay, first of all why would you ask that question? Of course Thor is better.

    I went to see Civil War at the weekend with my 14 year old. He lives and breathes superheroes.

    12 superheroes and as always we had to rate them in order of Favourites. My son's favourite was Iron Man, Mine was a bit of a suprise. I won't tell you as I don't want to spoil it for anyone who's not seen it.

  4. I won't be able to see "Civil War" until sometime next week, so I will hold myself back from watching this video until then. But it looks awesome, and I'm excited to see what y'all made!

  6. I have no strong feelings towards The Avengers (and if I'm being honest only the very vaguest of ideas who they are), I do like Batman though!

  11. That is a hard choice. They all have a purpose and do something to strengthen the group. Also, there are several very attractive Avengers. ;)
