I've recently read the "Civil War" comic series, and feel quite disappointed by its ending.
In the final battle, just when Captain America is about to beat Iron Man, and although the fight is pretty even is slowly falling by his "team" side, he is tackled by common folks that try to protect Stark. Then he gets totally demoralized, and like an epiphany, he realizes that he was wrong and Tony was right, surrendering and leaving the resistance headless and unable to keep fighting (as the anti-registration team were just following him).
Now, the finale seems too abrupt for me. There is no logical explanation for such a sudden change in the attitude of the main characters involved and although I can understand the main idea why
the fear and hate that common folk feel for supers is what makes him change his point of view,
it's also stated during the narration that
he's fighting just to avoid that people accept it as a common way of thinking, making correlation to Nazism and apartheid.
So, are there any parallel comics where more scenes explain this sudden change of mind in a more logical way, or add value to it, showing him, for example, having doubts about what his side are doing?
Where the hell did the common folk that tackled the Captain appear from? There were several pages of superhero madness destroying everything in the vicinity. With the current state of paranoia why didn't they flee or get evacuated?
