I am also on Team (Captain) America! :D Although wouldn't the solution be to make vigilantism illegal, regardless of whether they have super-powers or not? In real life, they don't force people who would go with Iron Man to reveal their identities publicly. Quite the opposite, really, we hardly ever hear the names of the people who perform major crime busts.
Still, it is a fun comic series and the premise's roots in the George W. Bush-era "you're with us or against us" theme is real enough that the series is plausible!1
