Bolts of thunder
>>120262049Looks like red & black star fell into the same continouty hole as red & black sentry
>>120262110Not gonna lie I kinda want knull to no sell reality warping for the shitpost
>>120262139>forgot storytime in the subjecyAh fuck
>>120262154Well at least it was the OC that died.
>>120262154>>120262208This sure is a Rosenberg book but at least he is only jobbing out his own OCs this time.
>>120262208>>120262226Did Rhino leave?
>>120262250>>120262248Yeah I posted the wrong page
>>120262267>Who died and made you Captain America?>Half the team.Okay, I laughed.
I'm not a fan of seeing this much of Taskmaster's face.
>>120262313I almost forgot this was batroc
>>120262331To be fair neither him nor Taskmaster look or act like they usually do.
>>120262331That's the problem with having a bunch of people who usually wear masks walk around without them.
>>120262154>thicc lizard diedShould've been Tompson's dumb OC
>>120262359This is the power, of leaping.
>>120262110I mean, couldn't Rhino just smash his way out?
>>120262349I don't read much of Tasky and Batroc but they act fine? Maybe a little quippier than usual for Batroc
>>120262397She can't die yet, there's an upcoming event for all the people who now have infinity gem powers.
>>120262154Oh, it's Suicide Squad.
>>120262417Yeah, at least for Batroc I stand corrected with the last couple of pages afterwards. Overall this was an okay comic, fun but also pretty forgettable.
Yeah, I didn't enjoy this.
>>120262507I think that Mr. Fear isn't making it out of this. Tasky is too popular, Batroc is a Cap villain, and Star has that infinity people story down the line, Mr. Fear is low enough on the totem pole of DD villains that he might not make it out of this.
Here for Carol('s villain)Why's she just blasting people instead of doing reality stuff?
>>120262283Worst part, that’s not even what he looks like. The artist is just shit at doing the research
>>120262129"My name is Star...you dont have read my mini?''''No, nobody did''
Better than the real Suicide Squad.
>>120262208>Rosenberg doesn't know what to do with a heavy hitter so he has her shoot lasers and now her power makes her faintHer power is declaring stuff in red text and making it happen and could just point at one of the dragons and say burn to light the whole thing on fire, definitely not powerful enough to take out Knull but this is silly.
>>120262086That girl wants the BRC it seems
>>120262379How are the moon and stars visible? Great art, but Knull covered the sky with a dome.
Batroc is my new favorite
>>120263176he was even more great in Gwenpool.
So what’s with everyone walking around without masks in this even though they normally wear them?
>>120262139>Wasn't it originally a scam started by a nazi pretending he was a good guy so he could take over the worldPoor Zemo. No one remembers the good he did.
>>120262577Am i the only one who is thinking Mr Fear is actually kinda cool in this? He seems competent although it's weird having a guy named FEAR be the comic relief.
>>120263705>Poor Zemo. No one remembers the good he did.Busiek fags ignoring Nicieza's run
>>120262428Because Rosenberg's a hack and Ellis completely ruined the concept of Thunderbolts.
>>120263877More like people who probably haven't even read Busiek's run and only know it from a wiki entry/brief description and then Ellisbolts.
Sometimes the art works. often it doesn't.
>>120262419she got Reality Stone powers. She might as well be UNABLE to die.
>>120262139Zemo was not a Nazi.
>>120262190It feels off that the wings are more durable than the skull
>>120262190Since when has gas affected symbiotes?
>>120262408he could if he wanted to, but he obviously doesn't
>>120262419All 2 of them?
>>120264947There is a more. iirc, Star, the time guy, the blue thing from Miles's book, amulet from ms marvel, power guy from gotg.
Why was Rosenberg so bad and why is he much better now?
>>120262313god i love batroc
>>120263705To be fair, he also killed Genis, so fuck him.
>>120262419Okay, so I haven't been paying attention, how many ARE there? I only know about the Time Guy, and I've never see him again after the Loki and Wolverine team-up.
>>120262402Why do they all look scared? They know who Norman is and what he looks like.I must say, it was pretty good by Rosenberg standards. At least he created some OC to be used as redshirts, this time.
>>120262419Buddy, that event was announced before COVID started and has not been mentioned since.It's in purgatory like Orlando's Darkhold event and Taylor's "Dark Age" thing
>>120266496Darkhold isn’t an event, it’s a mini.
>>120266112There’s also the guy from Miles book, and I guess that the rest were supposed to be revealed over the course of the event.
>>120266734This just reminds me of Bloodlines from DC and I'm sure they're going to have the same staying power where everyone is going to be forgotten in less than a year except one lucky person like Tommy.
>>120262408Could, but is apparently choosing not to
>>120264424Think it's less that the wings are more durable and more that the skull isn't equipped to handle a blast of energy from the inside
>>120262932Could be symbiote eyes. That'd be a cool effect for the dome, the "stars" blinking and everything making noises above, as you realize that the sky is writhing.
>knull shit not even once
the chad batroc
>>120265001Blue thing? Amulet is an infinity person?
>>120262239My daddy has a code
>>120262374Why would they wear a mask though? It's just like the pandemic, no one cares
>>120262139>The Hope LeagueShots fired.
>>120266423Part of me thinks it might be related to his being "reformed" Norman like how he appears to be in ASM at the moment.If he had any chance of saving the day, he'd be in Green and on a glider, but since he isn't, he might not be the help he was expected to be.
>>120262110aww Incendiary had a cool costume
>>120265410X-Men editors make all writers worse
>>120267869Not that I remember, his powers are magic and seem to be something passed down his family since his grandmother was the one who was the one who had the powers before him.
>>120268001Branding, there’s no way that Taskmaster would be out there doing this gig without trademark look.
>>120262577>>120263864Which Mr. Fear is this, anyway? Death would be cathartic if it was Larry, since he was the most vile Fear by far.>>120262624Guess he got a dye job.>>120265410Most of his stuff is readable enough, it's just that his X-Men was so abysmal that it practically destroyed his reputation.
>>120269215>Most of his stuff is readable enoughno graduate of Scott Snyder's "DC Talent Course" has produced anything readable.And yes, Rosenberg was in the first class of it.
>>120262110That’s a really Fisk thing to do
>>120262154Well, there goes the token OC
i didnt know there was more then 1 mr fear
>>120269340I think that all three of the characters that died this issue were OCs.
>>120262086Is that Alexander Hamilton from the musical Hamilton an American Musical?
>>120266895These characters don't seem like they were made to last, since the infinity stones are what power them and those always end up going back to Thanos at one point or another. Star is probably the only one who will last, Carol barely had any enemies of her own and I doubt that Thompson will get rid of her OC.
>>120262139Is this the first time taskmaster is without his mask?
>>120269555There's four, but one is dead while another is now Machinesmith.>>120269719No, but it happens so rarely that it's understandable that you'd think so.
>>120262170Ah Batroc, when in doubt, just kick the monster.
>>120263937I know them because of the DS trading card game, Atlas was the shit.>>120262154>oh! A penny!
>>120262139>Taskmaster is blonde now for some reasonI don't like it.
>>120265410>>120268690Is this the guy that was on X-Men right before the relaunch that killed a bunch of more major players off in really dumb ways to be edgy?
>>120262208Ah, the Geoff Johns special.
>>120262313Thats like the Honest Trailer version of where the Venom Symbiote came from
>>120262298This is a pretty cook panel
>>120262402Ok, Osborn as leader of SWORD might have known what to do, but he has almost no experience against symbiote stuff
You learn something new everyday, and today's lesson is : Pocket Paint automatically resizes images if they are above a certain limit.
>>120270099Not just blonde, but a burly square jawed dude with a broad nose, not the handsome, almost suave looking guy with dark hair he's usually depicted as.
>>120271973Lets just gonna pretend it's his face disguiser from the UDON mini.
>>120269215>Which Mr. Fear is this, anyway? Death would be cathartic if it was Larry, since he was the most vile Fear by far.It doesn't read like any previous portrayal of Cranston or Fagan at all. It would make more sense as an OC using the name, but he claims to have been around before Taskmaster.
>>120270697I have a maybe bad feeling it will be related to the Sentry then. From the last issue cover and Kingpin here making a press conference about something big the Thunderbolts did and everyone noticed. Norman not only was Sentry's boss during his own Thunderbolts redo of the Avengers, he also used his position then to recreate the Sentry serum and claimed he would mass produce it for him if needed.
>>120272641Maybe Zoltan Drago came back to life off-panel.
>>120262298Welp, at least they had Eddie... um, I mean Taskmaster do one cool thing.
>>120262045Thats a really cool cover
>>120262110and this immediately becomes a 0/10 book like all event comics when they kill off a C-Tier or lower character just because they can
>>120265410He's not any better though. Being in your face with "SEE THEY'RE MARVEL'S SUICIDE SQUAD" isn't a particularly good thing.>>120265969He's also the guy who created Genis. I wonder if there was a bigger story with Genis he intended to tell that would've brought him back but it got squashed with the Skrull Captain Marvel or if Marvel wanted him gotten rid of.
>Still don't know what happened to Melissa and Abe after Zubbolts ended>It's been almost 4 years
>>120273689Can you prove he is dead? Do you even remember a story with him?
>>120273958Songbird is fine, she showed up at the end of Empyre. Jolt is also still missing after being picked up by Ghost.
>>120273689I assume that they had the fodder be three new characters created for this story to try and avoid this kind of reaction... but here we are.
>>120262402Oh no, he's still good!
>>120266734Isnt there some black guy with the mind gem?
>giant symbiote dragonsurely the lizard mr fear taskmaster and batronc can handle it l
>>120273767>He's also the guy who created Genis.Pretty sure that was Ron Marz, not Nicieza, he just wrote Genis' first solo book.
>>120262267Why would Tasky give a fuck about someone stealing some jewels? He'd probably do it himself.
>>120262400He's a leaping frog.
>>120275242I believe Anon was implying that Zemo 'created' Genis in the fact that after Atlas killed Genis, Zemo resurrected him with Moonstone fuckery. Granted, doing this was causing Genis to possibly destroy reality so that's the reason he had to kill him
>>120262154>>120262139love Ferreyra's art, only reason I'm reading this. Also, what's with Rosenberg taking the artists from Green Arrow, first Otto Schmidt now Ferreyra
>>120269719pretty sure they try to conceal his face in his mini for some reason.
>>120262402>>120266423Fisk isnt aware that Norman is reformed right now, so he's full pacifist mode.
>>120262170good effort, BaltrocGwen would be proud
Hellions is doing this shit much better
>>120262110For a guy named "Incendiary" he actually had a balanced take on the whole situation and made a decision to protect his own life.
>>120279179He declined Kingpin...
>>120262139>lol Zemo was a NaziZemo hated nazis, nazists and actively fought against them every chance he could once he was free of his father influence.But then Marvel kept trying to make him a fascist-but-not-actually a Nazi for some fucking dumb reason on early 2010's. Guess this is the endgame of that.He was one of the coolest anti-villains to ever grace comics and now he is 'some nazi guy'.
>>120262154The art is great and I don't even hate the plot/tie-in smell of this thing but someone need to tell Marvel the THunderbolts vibe isn't supposed to be knock off Suicide Squad with z-tier villains dying for shock valor every odd page.
>>120262298I'm kinda impressed how fucking good the art is and how much I think Thunderbolts deserve a better direction.
>>120279214I never said he was smart! Just that he saw the hellscape outside and even with a name that implies passionate decision, made a cold calculating one.
>>120262277This is basically just Web of Shadows but shittier
>>120270099The editor didn't give the artist the refs for unmasked Taskmaster, he never saw him unmasked before so he assumed he wasn't shown and made things up.
>>120262359Im surprised it took this long for Batroc to be with the Thunderbolts. Seems to be a good place for him.
