Those answers and more as the Thunderbolts make their Marvel NOW! debut in THUNDERBOLTS #7 – coming to comic shops everywhere on November 30th!
Thunderbolts are go
So, looks like Marvel is taking another stab at the good-badguy group. I haven’t followed the book since the first run, which was actually pretty good. That was the ‘Citizen V’ team, headed up by someone who eventually turned out to be Baron Zemo.
That was then though, and The Winter Soldier is very much now. I was wondering when Buck was going to take a more active role int eh Marvel Universe, seeing as he’s been a force in the recent movies. And well, here we are.
He should fit right in with the Thunderbolts too, seeing as their claim to fame is being villains-turned-heroes. And honestly, he brings a little life to it, which is hasn’t had in a while. Should be fun.
