Iambaytor Posted February 10, 2010 Share Posted February 10, 2010 Okay, here's how the Thunderbolts series worked. Volume 1 - Picked up right after that whole Onslaught fuckup. Baron Zemo pretty much got a bunch of supervillains together, pretended to be superheroes to fill the void since all the Marvel heroes had disappeared at that point. Eventually the other members of the group (including Karla Soffen who really wasn't as much of a cunt back then as she has been post-Ellis) realized they liked being heroes and told Zemo to fuck off, Techno fucked off somewhere and they got a new member named Jolt and Hawkeye took over leadership of the team. I don't recall how it ended, but I know they broke up and Mach III went to jail for the crimes he committed as The Beatle. Volume 2 - Made it a page into this. From what I understand it's like Nextwave, but with villains-turned-heroes, and not funny. I don't think it lasted very long. Volume 3 - Mach III gets out of jail, restarts the team with Mockingbird, Atlas, Photon (Evil Captain Marvel more or less), and a few other members. This was where some new good members (Radioactive Man and Blizzard) and some utterly terrible ones (Speed Demon and Joystick) then The Fixer came back and so did Baron Zemo and Swordsman joined in there at some point. They got involved with the pro-registration side, rounded up all those supervillains that The Hood is currently in control of and reformed them. Zemo used Moonstone's moonstones to basically save the world and then they stopped him because hew as going to go all Miracleman. Mockingbird killed him, which brought Moonstone back to life. Blizzard and Mach III's suits were damaged beyond repair and the lack of funds meant they were going back to civilian life, The Fixer had no desire to keep up with it, Joystick is in prison for being an annoying backstabbing cunt, and Speed Demon went back to being a z-list villain. So Mockingbird, Moonstone, Radioactive Man, and Swordsmen went on to Osbourne's team and you know the rest. It wasn't a bad arc all told.
