Upcoming THUNDERBOLTS Cover Gets Risqué

Elektra and Frank Castle show us how they really feel about each other.

"Explosive" might be something of an understatement. One look at this risqué cover to the upcoming issue of THUNDERBOLTS that is continuing this March, 2013 and you might have to call up your local shop to put it on your pull list if you haven't already. The cover features amazing work from artist Julian Totino Tedesco and is, in a word, definitely "explosive." Elektra engages the Punisher in a passionate embrace.

What do you think of the image? Are you looking forward to the continuation of Daniel Way's THUNDERBOLTS series this March?

Yes, something feels very creepy and wrong about it.

Perhaps if her fingers weren't wonky and it was two completely different people.

Deadpool's gonna be soooooo jealous...

All I know is I see Steve Dillion's name nowhere on this book which mean I'm gonna start picking up Thinderbolts. ...also I don't agree with this pairing. But that cover is The Balls.

Elektra + Red Hulk.

Frank's gonna be so jealous.

No, new and unexpected would use characters who aren't just dangling on nostalgia.

Well Phil Noto's a great artist so maybe this book will become great.

Posted by Press Oblivion

looks like the Punishment has found a kindred spirit.

Posted by TDK_1997

That is so lame but at least we are going to get better artwork - Phil Noto.

Gorgeous cover, Utterly atrocious pairing.

Hold up.

Phil Noto?

@TheCheeseStabber:

*imagines a flash image of Red Hulk and Elektra in the same pose*

Excuse me as I die a little bit inside.

According to Marvel's March 2013 Solicitations, Phil Noto is the artist starting in #7.

I am really looking forward to that. As far as the pairing, it's definitely unexpected and provocative!

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@DarkKnightDetective: Wolverine and Storm are hooking up, as well as Superman and Wonder Woman. The trend is making the popular characters kiss face now.

I thought after the death of his family the Punisher Became A sexual.

Posted by Pwok21

Um, okay.

This makes little to no sense.

Posted by SavageDragon

I might be one of 7 people picking this book up in the US. Great cover.

Posted by Aiden Cross

I love the cover!! Very sexy. But i think the hook up is a bit random and just thrown in there for the sake of being there, not because it'll be a great story..

Posted by Spideycap

At least Marvel realized the art was not doing it for most people. I really like the characters and concept of the book, but I couldnt commit to it because of the art. Noto's art is usually amazing, so I'll have to check back in on this book in awhile.

Punisher and Elektra are the best pairing you can get!

Isn't Elektra a villain who remorselessly kills innocents on many occasions and Frank a vigilante whose only purpose is to kill villains who have hurt innocents?

Sounds to me like the worst pairing possible.

But think how freaky it would be?

Same here. I'm not sure how someone whose life literally revolves around killing can feel normal emotions.

That is something that should be kept entirely between you, your internet service provider and your membership to adultfanfiction, not in Marvel canon

Uh kinda weird.

NOTO WILL BE DOING ART INSTEAD OF DILLON? YES.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

Never thought that pairing would happen

Edited by JamDamage

I clearly don't know this forum's etiquette rules and what is considered acceptable language! :D

Posted by OmgOmgWtfWtf

I'm dying a little more inside with this Marvel Now stuff. My hands are shaking and I'm losing vision in my left eye. Please tell me this is only a cover and nothing more.

Posted by zackattack529

THunderbolts title is a joke, take it from someone who has wasted money on all the first variants excited for this title as well as the issue following.

I sold them already and made some good profit but still this title sucks...horrible art, boring story setup, and atrocious dialogue.

@blur1528 said:

I'm pretty sure that cover is done by Julian Totino Tedesco who also did some of the covers for Uncanny X-Force during Phil Noto's run. Notice the double-T signature.

Thanks so much for catching that. We posted the info we got from Marvel and they didn't credit the artist. We will fix it.

It's funny because they had a kid in an alternate universe. May have inspired this story.
