When I found out the relaunched Thunderbolts were going to include Deadpool, Venom,Rulk, Elektra and The Punisher I thought it was not going to work due to some of the characters involved. I will admit was I was definitely wrong. T-Bolts has the right amount of action and storytelling that makes the series work. Things will be taking a turn towards the crazy as Elektra hooks up with The Punisher. It all goes down in March. Press release courtesy of Marvel Comics.
