THE STORY:
THE HEROIC AGE IS HERE! The new era for Marvel's always-evolving, always controversial team kicks off here! It's a beginning, a return, a departure, and an arrival of a new artist (MARVEL ZOMBIES 3 & 4's Kev Walker) all rolled into one in a fresh, shocking status quo! The most dangerous people on Earth are now all in one hellish prison, and the only way out is through rehabilitation and contribution to society via The Thunderbolts...under the leadership of the steel-hard-skinned Avenger named Luke Cage! So bring on the first participants: Juggernaut! Crossbones! Ghost! Moonstone! And...Man-Thing? Against the sordid recent history of the group as a black ops kill squad, can Power Man restore the Thunderbolts to their rightful potential? Find out as the entire series is revamped, and also discover why ComicsBulletin.com says: "Jeff Parker writes villains with his typical panache...This is why I read comic books." Rated T ...$2.99

      Man-Thing is a giant mossy chia pet. Ever try and kill a giant mossy chia pet? Man-Thing is practically indestructible I'm pretty sure as long as he's in a swamp or like-conditions. He also produces his own fertilizer! :dead:

      Just the other day I was thinking, "I don't want to pick up Thunderbolts, I really don't." Yet the more I look at the art, the potential story, and the characters I'm not sure if I can resist. Even though it doesn't have the name Avengers on it, it sure feels like an Avengers book. This title might be the earth equivalent of Guardians of the Galaxy! If that's the case this new incarnation of Thunderbolts will be stellar (pun intended)!Foster for Frost Giant and Van Dyne for Valkyrie in 2010!

      I'm really looking forward to this series. This is a great new direction! Very interested to see how Luke interacts with these characters. And honestly who isn't excited to see Man-Thing on a team?!?!
