First Look: THUNDERBOLTS #20.NOW!

Find out what happens when the team runs into Ghost Rider.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at THUNDERBOLTS 20.NOW – from the red hot creative team of Charles Soule and Carlo Barberi! General Ross’ ragtag team of Thunderbolts were brought together to solve the problems that no one else could. But what happens when the problem…is one of them? The god-like Mercy has continues to wreak havoc and destruction – leaving nothing but blood and bodies in her wake. She’s gone too far – and the Red Hulk has turned to an unlikely ally in his quest to shut her down for good – Johnny Blaze, the original GHOST RIDER!

But even the Spirit of Vengeance himself may not be enough to keep this team of sinners and killers out of hell itself. Or maybe he’ll lead them there? Find out when Thunderbolts explodes onto the All-New Marvel NOW! scene in THUNDERBOLTS 20.NOW this January!

I must say, I do quite like that Ghost Rider cover.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

Well the art is certainly an improvement. Will continue on from their to see if the series gets better.

Not a big fan of the art and I'm not liking where this story seems to be going.

Edited by medulaoblaganda

i love the art but i dont like the sign on red hulk's chest. its satanic.

Edited by frozenedge

@medulaoblaganda: It's supposed to be satanic

The art is a definite improvement. Just might pick this issue up to see how they plan on dealing with Mercy

@g_man Quibble: Title should be "2.0" not "20.", yes? Wait, I mean missing a space between 20. and NOW! Marvel makes dumb titles.

Yes, this is a mark of satan that was placed on him, x-23, agent venom, and the female ghost rider during a story arc and is no doubt why they are going to hell. (Note: the symbiote's got foisted off on Flash's new sidekick, Mania).

Ah, so it is. Just looked strange to me without the trailing space between the 20. and the NOW!.

Almost a Circle of Four reunion (different Ghost Rider and no X-23). I'm tempted to get the series just for that.

like Matthew responded I am alarmed that anyone able to make $7802 in 4 weeks on the internet. read>>>>> www.jobs74.com

Matthew is a scumbag, just like your self.

When the hell did Blaze become Ghost Rider again?

Posted by HushoftheWind

btw Punisher, Venom, Deadpool, on the same team sounds like a 90's era book, which not necessarily saying that's a bad thing.

My thoughts exactly

Posted by Pokergeist

@lmothander: @hushofthewind: Blaze quickly received the Spirit again when the sales died during the short Alejandra GR run.

Ketch also still has a Spirit and Vengeance is somewhere as well though we hear next to nothing on them 2. There is also a new Ghost Rider on the scene soon to appear in Los Angelas I believe.

Finally a good artist for Thunderbolts! The only other good one was Phil Noto. The rest were atrocious!

Edited by cameron83

Love Carlos Barberi's art.

Posted by Pokergeist
Posted by NICKXH

Glad they've got rid of that previous artist and replaced him with Carlo Barberi. Just hope he stays for more than just 2 or 3 issues and not have fill in art. *cough* Scarlet Spider *cough* Finish what you started. God dammit!

@cadencev2 Danny Ketch is no longer a ghost rider, he mentioned it in Superior Spider-Man Annual

I like to know how. He had it after Heaven on Fore event and still had it when Blaze got his spirit back IIRC.

i like the art. i hope it gets a decent review.

Posted by micah

Praise God, the art is sooooo much better!!!

Edited by Maddpanda531

That new art is gorgeous.

Edited by medulaoblaganda

@fodigg: why would they do that to all does characters/ its crazy. i dont want them to do that to my favorite charcter(hulk). lol

Edited by jwalser3

Can they find any good artist for this book?

...
Yeah, that symbol was in use long before the concept of "satanic" existed.
Also, an odd thing to object to in a story with Ghost Rider, when he (or at least some iterations of him) gets his powers from Mephisto, who storywise served as a stand-in for the christian devil character.

this.

This looks good but I remember reviews saying this comic was disastrous. But that roster looks awesome ! is it good ? like Ellis' Thunderbols good ?

Venom got rid of the seal and gave it to Mania.

Oh.... i forget... does Flash still have a demon lord trapped inside of him?

Also if Rulk passes his on to Red She Hulk then the 4 would be 4 girls which is kind of cool. (Penance, X-23, Red She-Hulk, and Mania)
