Having a reason for accountability for ones own actions is never wrong.

I know this movie came out last year, but I felt a need to touch upon it considering the subject of accountablity. In the movie Captain America Civil War the Sokovia Accords come into play, which is a document laid out by the United Nations and one hundred seventeen countries. The question of oversight is the subject of the film should the Avengers have to work for the government or should they be free to do what they want regardless of the circumstances. Having read the comic book Civil War I was completely on Steve Rogers side, although I did agree with the Superhuman Registration Act to a point it did seem that Tony Stark was taking things to an extreme. Also in the comics considering the Regerstation Act was a law in America there were politans who took advantage of it, and and there were superheroes who sided with Tony at first but later questions if they were doing the right thing.

When the movie came out I picked Tony Stark's side, and one of the main reasons is because of the Sokovia Accords this time unlike the registration act it was an international law, which meant the entire world felt the affects of what the Avengers were doing. I know some would say that Tony signed the Accords because of guilt and he probably did, but the document is named after Sokovia a country destroyed by Ultron something Tony created. During the first Iron Man movie Tony finally saw what having no accountablity was doing to him and his weapons, which was being used to hurt people. In Civil War Steve said that the point of the Accords was for poltical agendas, and the Sokovia Accords panel would send the Avengers to places where they didn't have to be. For me I see it as Steve and the Avengers that didn't agree with the Accords didn't want governments telling them what they should do and where they should go, but look at it through the one hundred seventeen countries that signed.

The countries that signed are thinking about their saftey and the saftey of the citzens, they don't want to wake up to the Avengers destroying everything and bringing down buildings. Another thing about the Accords is that the Avengers need permission to enter a country, whiere usually they would storm right in and a country has a right to do that because this equates the Avengers to an invading army. When there's a dispute between two countries or a country with it's own people the Avengers probably would pick a side and fight, but that isn't fair to the other side a country has it's disputes but it isn't up to the Avengers to decide which one is right. What the Accords equate to is accountablity people with superhuman streangth and telekintic powers should be held accountable for what they do as people should in the real world also. What I equal this to is the police having accountablity, because there are times when the police will get out of hand, and there are people who will say one thing or another, but what this leads to is body cameras as a solution to what the cop is actually doing. I believe that if we did have superheros in our world people would be demanding some sort of laws to be put into place.

Before the movie came out people were on Team Cap, but when they got to see the movie they were on Iron Man's side, because of how there should be accountablity but also because of Steve's actions towards the of the film. Alson on Tumblr there are people who stand with Steve's side on the whole thing regardless of how hypocritical the excuse is, one of the reasons being is that he is Captain America and he has a right to stand up against the world. In the end I just want to say this just because the movie is called Captain America does not mean he will always be the hero in the eyes of others.
