You are correct. Marvel seems to be passing off the pro-side as historic heroes and saying their intents justify everything they have done. Meanwhile, a few people seem to think the pro-side can do nothing wrong.
Did the Anti-regs make some illegal an unethical choices/actions? Yes
Technically, their method of protesting the registration act was illegal. Working with the likes of the Punisher and Kingpin was unethical. But everytime I turn around it sounds like the pro-regs have done something worse.
Some people accuse the anti-regs of being facist Nazis, setting themselves above others, fighting against democracy, etc.
However, the more I look at it it is the other way around. Stark set himself above other people thinking he alone knows what needs to be done. Reed too to an extent based on some math they did. Congress passed a law that separates one specific group of people like the Nazis did to the Jews. They are the ones who kept/keep going lower and lower. The anti-reggers were mostly peacefully protesting an unconstitutional law till the pro-reg side uped the anti. They were not trying to set one view point above all others. In a since they were defending democracy from the facism the U. S. government seems to be building toward. They have already militarized the superheroes and we all know 9/10 where it goes from here.
