Civil War - What's Eating You? - Grant McLaughlin

1 - Peter Parker, in his Spider-Man costume, stands on a rooftop, looking down at a New York street where Captain America and Iron Man's opposing forces fight each other, with the two leaders front and centre.  Peter is frightened and confused.

PETER: I don't understand!  What could have cause this rift?  How did it all come to this?

2 - Flashback to the Avenger's mansion's kitchen.  Steve rummages through a cupboard, his face hidden by the cupboard doors.

CAPTION: How it all came to this.

STEVE: Hey...

3 - Tony sits at the table, a look of worry on his face as he raises his eyebrows.  Hulk and Spider-Man sit to either side, looking questionably in Tony's direction.

STEVE (off-panel): Who ate the last Pop-Tart?

4 - Looking down at Tony's plate, there are only crumbs remaining of the Pop-Tarts he's so clearly eaten.



  1. I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a part of me that would be highly amused if we all wound up just doing variations on this idea all week.

  2. Hilarious. I find myself once again trying to come up with something tongue in cheek and funny when it comes to these "event" or "movie" prompts, but Grant--once again--you beat me to the punch.
