Thunderbolts #1 – Marvel NOW! – Zone 4 Reviews

I wasn’t overly excited about this one, and I remain so. It was okay, had some good moments, but overall just eh. Watch for my complete thoughts (and Mike Spiderslayer, I swear I made this video before watching yours!)

Story: Red Hulk, Venom, Elektra, Deadpool, the Punisher. Forget the courts, the jails, the system – this team of Thunderbolts fights fire with fire, targeting the most dangerous and lethal players in the Marvel Universe with extreme prejudice. Led by General “Thunderbolt” Ross, AKA the Red Hulk, this hand-picked team of like-minded operatives is going to make the world a better place…by all means necessary.

Another Marvel NOW! book, but a #2 issue just because I like this series so much. Sorry for the lack of art in the review this time, I ran into time constraints. Check out a preview here:

It’s a blast from the past as the original five students of Professor X – Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel and Beast – are plucked from the past and brought to the present. But what they find, the state that their future selves are in and the state of Xavier’s dream, is far from the future they dreamed of. And how will the X-Men of the present deal with their past coming crashing forward?

Avengers #1 – Marvel NOW! – Zone 4 Reviews

Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena bring us Avengers #1 as part of Marvel NOW! as I continue to cover the #1 issues. Have to say I really enjoyed the book. I apologize if I rambled, I recorded it at like 5am. lol

Story: The greatest heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team! Now shipping twice a month, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call – who will answer? Big threats, big ideas, big idealism – these are the Avengers NOW!
