WIZARD WORLD PHILADELPHIA: CIVIL WAR PANEL

PHILADELPHIA -- Marvel's Civil War panel at Wizard World Philadelphia on Saturday wasn't long on news, but it wasn't short on discussion -- or images, either.

Above are newly released images that were part of Marvel's presentation.

Highlights of the panel included:

* Editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said that Civil War is making Tony Stark "the most interesting character" in the Marvel Universe. He said that Stark's most defining trait was his struggle with alcoholism, but the events of Civil War and the current Iron Man book will redefine him.

* Will Nick Fury be in Civil War? "Maybe," teased editor Tom Brevoort.

* Quesada said the Punisher in the new Punisher War Journal book -- which will be more integrated in the Marvel Universe -- will not be any nicer that the MAX version.

* The pages from the Civil War: Young Avengers/Runaways were censored because they would reveal elements that haven't been seen in the event yet.

* Brevoort said there will be "a completely different landscape" with New Avengers afte the "New Avengers: Disassembled" story arc.

* Heroes for Hire artist Billy Tucci said the book will have more of a street feel and give readers "a more human look" at Civil War.

* Look for the villains' involvement in Civil War to be played out in #5.
