I just read Captain America #25, NA #28, and Mighty Avengers #1 which has provoked some CW thoughts.

Now, to be fair, Ironman tried to make the best of a bad situation...but he's still a moron for supporting this. Here's a couple of points that have been argued in support of the SHRA.

The will of the people. Supposedly there the ones who want the SHRA but they didn't seem too happy when Cap was going to court being dragged around like a common criminal. What did there signs say? Oh yeah, "free Captain America" even though he broke the precious law. Hell, I even saw a few "SHRA is fascist" type signs in the crowd. So exactly which people are we talking about?

Property damage. This is just plain stupid. In Mighty Avengers there fighting a bunch of giant monsters and Ms. Marvel is worried about property damage? Even worse the govt. is gonna give them a hard time about it? There's no good reason for that other then some far fetched example of a hospital losing power which is in no way shape or form the heroes fault since it's the VILLIANS who are to blame since they attacked in the first place. Everyone loves to use the Military as an example for the SHRA (which is specious) so do you really think the Marines would give a damn about property damage in a war?

Controlling things from within. Supposedly as director of SHIELD Ironman can keep things reasonable except that in Mighty Avengers he makes it clear he doesn't have control since if they don't bring in the New Avengers "they" will. Crap crap crap.

I'm sure I'll think of more later but I gots to go.

How about the people who were asking for the Act during the Civil War Mini, like the ones who put the beatdown on the Human Torch, the family in Stamford that felt safe around the heroes because the Sentinal Squad was around, all the talking heads on the news, or the rescue workers that pulled Cap off of Tony, just to name a few.

Course there was also the guy who threw a tomato into Cap's face while he was being led to prison along with pro-SHRA protesters at what would be cap's assassination.

Did it occur to you that the gov't might not want there to be excessive property damage, hence the heroes trying to keep the collateral damage to a minimum. Besides that the heroes aren't in a war, and shouldn't be given carte blanche to do whatever they want to stop a villian. Especially now with Damage COntrol going through some rough times.

Well it's not as if Tony can look the other way forever as his former teammates and friends willingly and wantonly break the law without some kind of repercussions. If Tony doesn't try, or doesn't look like he's trying to take the New Avengers, the UN would probably get a new director who could do it. And they probably wouldn't do it as nicely as I'm sure Tony will. Remember, every hero we've seen him bring in he always starts with talk and an offer of amnesity, and only resorts to violence if attacked first.
