This winter Marvel is completely switching things up, creating new series featuring different characters and swapping writers on many of their ongoing books. With Deadpool's current ongoing series coming to an end, it's safe to say that writer Daniel Way has had a very long and relatively successful run on the title with 60+ issues under his belt. So what's next for the creator?
When asked in an interview earlier this year what he would be working on since his run on DEADPOOL was coming to an end, Way revealed he would be "working on a team book and...that's about all I can say." Considering the writer has ample experience portraying Deadpool in his comic book series, the obvious choice would be for Way to take over writing duties for Rick Remender on UNCANNY X-FORCE since, you know, Deadpool in on the team. This was the rumor that was circulating the net until today.
This morning Marvel unveiled the teaser image for a new book due to hit stores this December that would be written by Way and feature art from Steve Dillon. The teaser consists of one word: "Lightning" and an image of red cross-hairs set in a black background. So, what team book can we associate with the word "Lightning"? Thunderbolts, of course. So the big question we are left with, what Marvel characters will Way have the pleasure of playing with on the upcoming title? While we're hoping Deadpool (which would make sense considering the history of the types of characters featured on the Thunderbolts teams), we want to hear what you think. Who would you like to see on Daniel Way's upcoming Thunderbolts title?
