4.1.1. Body Paragraph #1: Cap and Government Overreach

4.1.1.1. What: After the events in the Age of Ultron, the UN drew up the Sokovia Accords, which require superheroes to register

4.1.2.2.2. This is a big deal because he was willing to face scrutiny and division at the cost of protecting his friend

4.1.2.3. Sometimes, you need to rebel when
