NEW THUNDERBOLTS CONFIRMED!!!
With the tagline "Injustice, like lightning...", Marvel's latest teaser image features a handful of silhouettes against a stormy sky. The teaser appears to homage the "Thunderbolts" #1 cover, which suggests a new "Thunderbolts" series will follow "Avengers: Standoff."
Like their "Uncanny Inhumans" teaser, Marvel has intentionally left some figures in this new image obscured. Only one figure is illuminated: a little girl washed in whites and blues. While it isn't clear who this girl is, she may be a main player in "Avengers: Standoff," as one teaser for the event shows a little girl playing with the Cosmic Cube.
And the original pic for comparison.
FUCK FUCK FUCK
btw, storytime tonight: Thunderbolts 71-75
It's spining out of Standoff >>79133175
Many speculate that the twist in Standoff is that Pleasant Hill is actually populated by Supervillains brainwashed into believeing they're in a perfect town. Maybe this is about villains that get out and band together for something.
I'm not holding my breath. I want it, but I'm not falling for this until I see a solicit.
>Who's the kid?
IF this is a new Thunderbolts book, she's the obligatory team daughteru.
When I posted that I didn't see any replies in the thread. Figured it was fake.
I probably shouldn't be, but I'm a little hyped.
PLS LET TROLL IN

This would be a better idea if there was build-up, like random villains from teams just disappearing. They could even use it as build-up for Civil War 2 by having it so the whole thing was Carol's idea and have her realizing it isn't going to work and then she meets Desti-I mean the Mad Thi-I mean whoever the new guy is that can see the future and coming up with a plan b.
Everyone's always complaining about how Marvel's ruining everything, often not without reason, and while that's nothing new, simply having the name "Thunderbolts" doesn't guarantee it'll be great.
Wouldn't want to get too excited that I lose myself, or get extremely disappointed if they somehow fuck it up.
The whole point of pleasent hills, the location for the next event, is that shield is using "something" to make villains behave and normal people.

So I guess that child is related to the next event.
Just in time for the next movie, I for one accept the MCU sinergy if that mean we get citizen V in comics
Is still a possibility, as that anon said, just because it has the name thunderbolt doesnt mean is going to be good
Given how the endless loop time paradox he was caught it made no freakin' sense, I guess that with all the "time is broken" stuff they've had he managed to escape.
What have Moonstone and Atlas been up to lately? I know Mach-V was in Superior Foes
The only other Carol rogue I can think of is Yon-Rogg, whom KSD reintroduced and gave a huge power-up as Magnitron and he hasn't shown up since. It's a pity, he actually seemed interesting, I hope he shows up in the new solo
Oh yeah, that was an insult to the character. Bendis shit all over him by revealing that Atlas' motivation for joining Wonder Man was that he was butthurt that the Avengers never invited him.
Then the end of the issue has Simon shitting on Wanda even harder, again.
>Wonder Man's Rightvengers
They weren't right, they were a bunch of butthurt idiots that didn't stop to consider who would stop Kang the next time he nukes Washington and takes over the world. Wonder Man's entire argument falls apart.
He clearly loves the Bolts.
even though the Zemo resurrection was considerably more convoluted than this summation covers
Devil-Slayer, there are already plenty of dimensions without Avengers. Coincidentally, those are all dimensions that have been take over by super-villains.
You're a fucking idiot, unless by "winning side" you mean that you want to join Hydra.
If Marvel was smart, they'd use her as a Thunderbolt, and not kill her off in Captain Marvel. Fox is getting SJW praise for making Mystique an Anti-Hero, and Marvel doesn't have an equivalent. I mean, for all the "muh red ledger" shit, Black Widow never actually does anything sinister in the MCU.
IIRC, and I only know this because I went trolling thanks to comicbookdb, he got rejected from the Initiative, but I can't quite find out where this happened.
it's so perfect
I only recognize Atlas.
Either I don't read enough comics or Bendis had his cronies scrape at the bottomest of the bottom barrels of Marvel characters to dig up these guys. Did he call in Indiana Jones to find them?
Some of these guys are a bit more known, but they're mostly mangled by Bendis.
I would think the place she's in would be too good of a position to pass up, being an actual leader.
I only recognize Ultraman from the most recent Fantastic Four cartoon. Virtue showed up in Spider-Man with a very Superman origin, turns out he's a superskrull shot from his homeworld as Galactus devoured it and landed in a very Religious part of the south. He moved to New York to work at the Bugle, found out who he was and had an identity crisis. He fucked off to Africa to use his healing powers on the dying
These were presumably the only characters Marvel would allow Bendis to shit all over by having them join Wonder Man's Butthurt Brigade. Only characters that editorial didn't care about. They presumably only allowed Eddie Brock because this is actually in-character for him.
Holy fuck. You mean he wasn't just some jackoff from the '90's Iron Man cartoon?
What he's saying and how he looks does not make sense at all.
I will never understand what he's doing there.
>Only characters that editorial didn't care about.
Does anyone care about them?
Does anyone even remember they fucking exist? Aside from Atlas, D-Man, and Anti-Venom, and even then I'd say D-Man is iffy as to whether or not anyone remembers him.
Oh, wait. Was this before or after Brubaker made him crazy? CrazIER, I mean.
Bendis never actually read any comic starring D-Man and just made him a crazy hobo that says and does crazy things. Fortunately Spencer has fixed that.
Anti-Venom is actually the only one that makes sense other than Black Goliath.
Brubaker didn't make him crazy, he made him brainwashed. He actually showed some respect for the character.
Bendis made him crazy. Every time Bendis wrote D-Man he'd be portrayed as mentally ill, lonely and pathetic homeless man.
>Calling it crap when you know literally nothing about it
Anyway, I guess it won't be Busiek or Abnett, so a hack will write this crap.
>fills his comics with lots of thought boxes because capes are soooo intellectual
>turns every book he works in into his personal blog
Mach Whatever Mark he is now.
Is the kid someone or are they new?
>So I guess that child is related to the next event.
Considering one of the covers of Assault on Pleasant Hill is a child holding a cosmic cube, that's probably a pretty safe bet.
So like you can easily spot someone who looks like Mach-V, Moonstone, Atlas, and Fixer, but Zemo and/or Citizen V, who should be in based off of previous promos doesn't seem to be there, but instead someone with a big fist and a defined face which neither the Citizen V or Zemo masks have. If it weren't for the tag line, I would think it might be Cagebolts 2.0, though the fist is slightly to big for even him.
Fucking hell, are they going to make another Thunderbolts book without any Classic Thunderbolts members? My expectations just got cut in half.
Citizen V could be practically anyone.
My first impression was to be really excited about this, but then I looked at the floating person and became intensely suspicious of this silhouette crap. Songbird has already been replaced. I am bracing my self for the worst.
