I started picking up this book because I so loved the previous Thunderbolts comic. By keeping the same title, Marvel has played upon the goodwill that they previously built up to get me to give this one a chance. But, for good or ill, this is not the Thunderbolts that you remember. Has Marvel leveraged the Thunderbolts brand to introduce me to a new book that I’ll enjoy, or have they trod its good name into the mud, forever tainting the happy memories I associated with it?

Now here is a San Diego Comic Con figure exclusive I’m actually excited about. With all the hoopla surrounding the return of the Skrulls – or rather the revealing of the Skrulls that have been around for a long time – Diamond Select Toys has unveiled the Elektra Skrull action figure.
In addition to getting Matt Murdock’s girlfriend all glammed up in green paint and funky chin (sorry no Jennifer Garner likeness), the seven-inch figure will also include a variety of martial arts weapons, and interchangeable arms and legs. Best of all the figure is packed with her very own Skrull soldier – not just any Skrull soldier, but the creepy old school outfit Skrull.
The Skrull two-pack will be available at the San Diego Comic Convention for $20.
