WHEN MARVEL first announced "Civil War: The Confession," I was a bit underwhelmed. The idea of the one-shot, a conversation between Captain America and Iron Man - in which we would learn a secret about Civil War - did not seem terribly exciting. Toss in the fact that Brian Michael Bendis - a talented writer who, at his worst, would rather write endless dialogue at the expense of pacing and action - and you had a book that looked to be little more than an attempt by Marvel to take more money from the "Civil War" brand.

This week's DVD releases are topped by films about people who fight injustice and evil. Captain America: The First Avenger, Grade C-minus: Chris Evans - the guy who put the heat in the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies - steps into the boots of the latest comic-book-inspired film champion. He plays Steve Rogers, a 90-pound weakling who, through the magic of science, becomes the hunky Captain America. The film isn't a major disaster, but it generally could use some work.

Who owns America? In this battle of the states, it's the Germans. In August, water company Philadelphia Suburban Corp. expanded its reach to 13 states and announced it would patriotically rename itself Aqua America Inc. The name, the winning entry in an employee contest, sounded like the fusion of two superheroes - Aquaman and Captain America. A colleague at the company's Bryn Mawr headquarters gave chief executive officer Nick DeBenedictis a Captain America action figure. Bosses were less giddy at bigger rival American Water, the Voorhees water company that, under new German owner RWE Group, also was expanding across the country.

A chill wind blew off the Delaware River as the U.S. women's soccer team ran onto PPL Park's field Thursday evening to prepare for its CONCACAF Women's Championship 2014 semifinal match with Mexico a night later. Instinctively, as if they were students drawn to her for wisdom, several of the American players gathered around Christie Rampone. Rampone, a 39-year-old New Jersey mother of two, is the aged guru of the U.S. squad, which can guarantee itself a spot in the 2015 World Cup with a victory Friday night.

MEET PATEL spends a decent amount of his workweek convincing customers that he doesn't make maki. Turns out when people read the "roll" part of "kati roll," the South Asian focus of Patel's 4-month-old Center City restaurant, their minds drift to thoughts of vinegared rice twisted in nori. In actuality, this Indian snack, originating in the cafes and street stalls of Kolkata, is about as similar to sushi as Sour Patch Kids are to cilantro. They've appeared in a few different places in Philly so far, but Spice End, on Chestnut Street near 20th, is the first place to make them a specialty.

A relaunch of the Justice League of America doesn't happen every day. Re-energizing a title that had been published almost continuously for more thanfour decades, featuring the world's most popular and recognizable characters - Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Green Lantern - is a daunting task. Fortunately for DC Comics, they found best-selling novelist Brad Meltzer. Meltzer (who will do a signing for his latest novel, "The Book of Fate," Sept. 21 at Chester County Book Co. in West Chester)
