       Hoping to boost their ratings, four New Warriors-young super heroes and reality television stars-attempt to apprehend a quartet of villains  holed up in Stamford, Connecticut. When confronted, the explosive Nitro employs his self-detonation ability, blowing the New Warriors and a large chunk of Stamford into oblivion. The entire incident is caught on tape. Casualties number in the hundreds.

         As a reaction to this tragedy, public sentiment is turning against super heroes. Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, is attacked outside a nightclub and beaten into a coma. On Capitol Hill, a Superhuman Registration Act is debated which would require all those possessing paranormal abilities to register with the government, divulging their true identities to the authorities and submitting to training and sanctioning in the manner of federal agents.

Some heroes, such as Iron Man, see this as a natural evolution of the role of super heroes  in society, and a reasonable request. Others, embodied by Captain America, take umbrage at this assault on their civil liberties.

When Captain America is called upon to hunt down his fellow heroes who are in defiance of the Registration Act, he chooses to go AWOL, becoming a public enemy in the process.

Meanwhile, Reed Richards has chosen a definite side for the Fantastic Four, as he teams up with Iron Man and Yellowjacket to bring Cap and other unregistered heroes to the ground.
