Abstract: This study adopts Generic Structure Potential (GSP) to unfold the necessary and adjunctive narrative elements of a text, the prologue of the Marvel comic book series, Civil War. The analysis identifies each of the stages in order to investigate how each of these can be graphic and lexical-grammatically realised as a multimodal text. This study attempts to demonstrate the canonical scheme of a comic book and how it is realised as a multimodal narrative text in order to have a better understanding of the process of multimodal integration. That is, how multimodal elements are integrated to create meanings, as a case of iconic solidarity study that aims to contribute to studies in multimodality and narrative.
