Special Post-SIEGE issue – that introduces a brand-new character! When a magical landmark like Asgard crashes to Earth, the fallout doesn’t end just by sweeping up the wreckage. This historic disaster has unleashed unprecedented threats, and one of them is pillaging the American Midwest! This sounds like the perfect mission for Luke Cage’s untested team of incarcerated superhumans – and while the newly assembled Thunderbolts boast the power of Juggernaut, Ghost, Moonstone, Crossbones and Man-Thing, are even they ready to handle the girl known only as…Troll?

  1. All I need is my "Man-Thing" to be satisfied with this issue. :p

  2. "Special Post-Siege issue?" Umm… is this book set pre-Siege or peri-Siege, because otherwise that’s a really meaningless distinction. I loved the first issue, hope this continues.

  3. My only real complaint about last issue was the god awful haircut they gave Songbird. It makes
    her look insane.

  4. I’m glad Ron picked this, cause otherwise I wouldn’t have given this a second thought.

  5. Did anyone else catch the Aziz Ansari reference in the last issue. Totally made my day.

  6. Giving this one more issue to win me over.

  7. I’m not a fan of the crossover plans for this series, but I’m interested enough in the premise to stay on the title to see where it all goes.

  8. Getting this to get the cliffhanger explained. Also, maybe they will run a mission or something? I disagree that the "getting the band together" are usually awesome. They are usually dull as nothing happens but putting the band together. Last issue was better than average, but didn’t blow me away. I liked the Secret Avengers method. Drop us into the action and explain how it came to be later.

  9. It’s so nice to see Man thing in an ongoing.  I’d like to see some more action in this issue, but I’m hooked

  10. @owly I think the ending of the last issue makes action almost essential in this.  You shouldn’t be let down.

  11. @drake what plans? I must’ve missed it.

  12. It’s doing a crossover with Avengers Academy and then with Shadowland.

  13. puke. I couldn’t stand AA.  I’m getting Shadowland though, so that’ll work out.

  14. There seem to be a lot of crossovers planned in between the new series…not crazy about that at all.

  15. "Girl named Troll."  Is this an eighties teen flick?

  16. Crossovers with two books I don’t care about? Dropping this like a hot potato. Shame, as I was enjoying this, but I just do not have the budget to mess with a crossover, let alone two.

  17. RE: The crossovers – Looking at the solicits it doesn’t sound like the Scared Straight crossover is running directly between the issues, where part one is un Avengers Academy, part two is in Thunderbolts.  Looks like they’re working it more as both books are dealing with the same story for a bit and its not essential to read both. Plus it’s only taking place in Thunderbolts for one issue.  The Shadowland tie-in is just a Thunderbolts story taking place within the general plot of Shadowland (Daredevil and the hand take over Hell’s Kitchen, everybody fights) and I don’t think you’ll need to read any other Shadowland books to enjoy it.  I know I don’t feel obligated to.

    Anyway, as far as this issue goes I liked it.  Parker’s keeping the pacing brisk.  We get the fight from last issue’s cliffhanger, the introduction of the new warden and a new mission all in one issue.  No messing about.

  18. This was great… not as strong as issue one but still really good.

  19. @stasisbal-The point isn’t whether I have to pick up the other books, the point is that I want this book to tell it’s own separate stories for a while before it intersects with anything else.

  20. This is one of my new favourite Marvel comics. The story is fun, the art is great and it’s the best use of Man-Thing I’ve ever seen. 

  21. I must be the only one who doesn’t like the art most of the time. It is great on Ghost and Man-Thing but on everyone else I hate it.

  22. @minion Oh god.  I love all the art on this.

  23. I love this book so much I want to take it behind the middle school and let it get me pregnant! #30Rockreference
