I'm glad they finally changed the art style. The last few issues looked like they were drawn by a child.

This issue fails the Bechdel Test.

@Gpacknett3 You know if every work of fiction were forced to meet the minimum requirements for every group of people to be happy, we'd have a very homogenized and boring world of fiction to look forward to. Get over it. There are plenty of Marvel comics that prominently feature women. Some even have female leads whose names are in the title! Read Captain Marvel or Brian Wood's X-Men. New She-Hulk is pretty awesome. How about Ms. Marvel which not only features a strong female lead character, but one that has something other than the "typical American background. Hell, even the typically over-sexualized Black Widow is in her own book that shows her to be much more than a source for T&A. Compare this to the Marvel of the '90s and you'll see that you are really just splitting hairs and not really helping any cause with your nitpicking.

@bigbrotherbeane @Gpacknett3 Wow. One sentence of criticism, that was technically completely correct and not especially negative, seven lines of defense. Did you feel that attacked?


This team is four guys, two girls, one of them more a force of nature. Not passing the Bechdel Test isn't probably that surprising here. I don't expect my comics to represent everything the way it is in real life. Heck, until we can expect equal representation of races and sexual preferences decades will probably pass. But at the very least getting a closer representation of women can be expected. But that's one thing, I don't like about the Thunderbolts here...there is enough to like otherwise, so it's still a good series for me.
