Captain America, Ant Man, Wanda (the Scarlet Witch), Falcon, the Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye are running toward the plane. Vision flies in and, using his laser, draws a line on the ground in front of them.
Vision: “I know you believe what you’re doing is right. But, for the collective good, you must surrender now.”
The rest of the superheroes align themselves on the side with Vision…Iron Man, Black Widow, War Machine, Spider-Man, and Black Panther. Split down the middle, the twelve superheroes face each other. Once friends, they are now willing to fight each other to get their own way.
Winter Soldier: “What do we do, Cap?”
Captain America, stepping across the line: “We fight.”
Black Widow, sarcastically: “This is gonna end well.”
The twelve heroes begin running toward each other, preparing themselves to battle.
Spider-Man, surprised: “They’re not stopping!”
Iron Man, determinedly: “Neither are we…”
With a terrific clash, the two groups strike each other and begin fighting. Friend hits friend. Partner strikes partner. Good tears apart good.
At one point, Hawkeye has Black Widow pinned.
Black Widow: “We’re still friends, right?”
Hawkeye, somewhat joking: “Depends on how hard you hit me.”
Black Widow lashes out, escapes his hold, and moves to attack Hawkeye. Suddenly, her leg is pinned by Wanda’s red fire. Wanda throws Black Widow back against a truck. She lies on the ground, groaning in pain. Hawkeye looks at Wanda in surprise.
Wanda had realized Hawkeye was finding it hard to hit a friend: “You were pulling your punches.”

“Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves. You lust for what you don’t have and are willing to kill to get it. You want what isn’t yours and will risk violence to get your hands on it.” James 4:1-2 (The Message)
