Awesome. i was worried when Marvel announced that Frank would be on a team. But to me this makes sense to put him on the Thunderbolts.

This roster of thunderbolts it makes sense to me, they seem more like a group of antiheroes. The ex. villains roster and put Frank in there it doesn't make sense. He would try or die trying kill'em on page 2.

this definitely works for me!

All team members are loner... all killers... all work above the laws of morality! PERFECT for Frank.

I was worried that they would have Frank taking orders from some civilian superhero but with Red Hulk (former Army general) calling the shots, I can absolutely accept that Captain Castle would fall in line with this team.

Also it's nice to see Marvel is showing Frank some love by including him in the whole Marvel NOW thing they are doing

I think the team is badass.... But I don't think they should call themselves the Thunderbolts.

Marvel hasn’t learned it’s lesson with the Punisher, they’re doing the same thing they did back in the 90’s. He’s making too many appearances and getting involved in superhero crap that doesn’t involved him in the slightest. But since the Avengers film was a big hit, everyone has to be part of a team to fight some big threat… and Marvel can always count on the action junkie Punisher fan base to support whatever crap they come up with. The Undead Angel Punisher, Captain American/Punisher, FrankenCastle, Solid Snake Punisher

The Punisher taking orders, being told what he can and can’t do… where are the real Punisher fans??? Because there not here…

Many appearences? His current run is ending, we got untold tales coming to a close and Space Punisher too. What's your ideal Punisher? Gerry Conway? Steven Grant ?Mike Baron's? Chuck Dixon? Ennis? This is not the 90's with 3 books ongoing. Describe for us to understand your point. Solid Snake Punisher? Are you talking about the looks or the way he was writting?

I'm sorry but Frank is gonna kill somebody, Deadpool is gonna kill somebody, they're all gonna kill repeatedly, they don't mind!

Awesome. I'm very excited to give this a shot. Although, Frank looks weird on that cover.

i dont like it...

I love the fact that Frank and 'Pool are finally on the same team, especially because they kind of hate each other.

I love this line-up, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable about this book if Remender wrote it.

Still, this team would benefit from having at least one legit villain, not just antiheroes. Bullseye wouldn't work because they already have enough shooters. Taskmaster on the other hand.....

He wouldn't last long the Punisher would always try or die trying to kill that villain when the time is right. When people talked of the possibility of Thunderbolts i thought it was stupid.. C'mon Frank working with ex villains?

@Bionder: Derp. Good point.

#17 Posted by Bionder (290 posts) - - Show Bio

But in the other way, they should change the name of the team, because the original idea of Thunderbolts is all the members as reformed villains.

Well, since Thunderbolt Ross is leading the team it does make sense.

Yes it's trully sad that Greg Rucka's run is ending. Maybe they can think again if the War-Zone arc sales rises.
