Scourge and Ghost vs. Gorilla-Man and M-11, the Human Robot? Oh, itâ€™s on! A former ally has earned Norman Osbornâ€™s ire, and now heâ€™s sent his team of psychos to unearthâ€”and killâ€”none other than The Agents of Atlas! Can the Thunderbolts take down the squad of â€˜50s misfits, or will they destroy themselves first? Thatâ€™s right, writer Jeff Parker has brought his cult-fave team to town for a two-part throwdownâ€¦and when the dust clears, one T-Bolt wonâ€™t be left standing!

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: The Squadron Supreme
Freed from the constraints of keeping the comicâ€™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 â€œpre-Watchmen Watchmenâ€œ; it substitutes for that bookâ€™s cynicism with a sense of humor and history.
