Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread
Well, I remember reading the J. Michael Straczynski-written Amazing Spider-Man issues that led into Civil War, and in them it seemed that Stark held pretty much the opposite view on registration than he did in CW. Although I think the idea was that he was anti-registration until the tragic incident that set off the miniseries changed his mind. But I do recall reading reviews complaining that a lot of characters were written inconsistently among the various series involved in the crossover.
JMS had a very consistent pattern during the CW story and its aftermath of writing Iron Man as a cartoon villain. There were a number of writers who had that problem, but he was probably the most egregious instance; there are a number of times were the Spider-Man tie-ins that he wrote, in particular, completely undermine the main story.
