After the death of over 600 civilians during a botched reality show featuring heroes tracking down villains, the government enacted the Superhero Registration Act. This law divided the heroes across the United States, forcing them to choose to support the law or to fight it. Two heroes embodied the extremes, as Iron Man took control of the Pro-Registration camp, while Captain America chose to lead the Anti-Registration camp. Under Iron Man's guidance, Peter Parker made the decision to make his identity public, and registered himself.
Peter soon regretted the decision, realizing the danger his friends and loved ones were now in and seeing the prospect of having to capture his renegade friends in the now Civil War of the superpower community. After seeing a prison for the unregistered superhumans, he fled Avengers Tower with his family, clashing with Iron Man during his exit. A major battle and a jailbreak at the unregistered prison lead to the end-all battle of the Civil War, and Spider-Man remained a member of the unsanctioned Avengers team in the aftermath. But the damage had already been done, with Spider-Man's identity public knowledge. The Kingpin commissioned a sniper to kill Peter Parker's family, and though Mary Jane was spared, Aunt May was left in a coma on the verge of death. Spider-Man resumed wearing his black cloth costume, reflective of the dark times while his Aunt May was precariously close to death.
The Sideshow Exclusive version of the 'Back in Black' Spider-man Legendary Scale Bust includes a unique feature available nowhere else: Spider-Man 'Back in Black' nameplate.
