THUNDERBOLTS #139
Written by JEFF PARKER
Penciled by MIGUEL SEPULVEDA
Cover by FRANCESCO MATTINA

Scourge and Ghost vs. Gorilla-Man and M-11, the Human Robot? Oh, it’s on! A former ally has earned Norman Osborn’s ire, and now he’s sent his team of psychos to unearth—and kill—none other than The Agents of Atlas! Can the Thunderbolts take down the squad of ‘50s misfits, or will they destroy themselves first? That’s right, writer Jeff Parker has brought his cult-fave team to town for a two-part throwdown…and when the dust clears, one T-Bolt won’t be left standing!

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: The Squadron Supreme
Freed from the constraints of keeping the comic’s Earth looking (at least superficially) like our Earth and of tying into the continuity of other books, Mark Gruenwald explored the ramifications of super-heroes taking over the world to save it from itself. A “pre-Watchmen Watchmen“; it substitutes for that book’s cynicism with a sense of humor and history.

    Mark Gruenwald said that he got the Behavior Modifying Device idea from Doc Savage.
    Also this was my first experience with the Major Spoilers Podcast and I thought it was great.

      I did not know that is where Gruenwald got the idea – but the Doc Savage connection does make sense… also, thanks for the kind words about the show, we hope you continue to come back and make the Major Spoilers Podcast part of your complete Major Spoilers Experience.

    It’s so nice of you to mention The Squadron Supreme, it basically introduced me to comics when I was a child. Thanks!
    (Could we maybe expect a future podcast about Alan Moore’s run on Supreme? Wacky as it is, I’m sure it’d make for an especially entertaining show. Well, for me anyways.)
