A sneak peak inside the Marvel creative summit where they came up with Civil War II:
"Yes, Brian, whatever, we'll undo whatever you do, just have the scripts in on time."
Oh, geez, sorry, I thought that was Bendis and Breevort, not Reed and Franklin Richards. Hahahah...I certainly didn't mean to imply that Civil War II is a slapdash barely-plotted child's stream of consciousness idea of an event! That would be just silly to suggest that Marvel's event would generally be better if they just threw random action figures together and Axe-Copped it! Nope, not me, never...
