In Staten Island, have super-powered criminals seized hostages? What about a tear in the fabric of reality that opens up in Chinatown? What will the Met be overrun with? Call in the THUNDER to save the day!

In THUNDERBOLTS #1, set to arrive in May, New York City will have its own official super heroes! This all-new Thunderbolts team will be the subject of a limited series written by Jim Zub and illustrated by Sean Izaakse, who rose out of the rubble of DEVIL’S REIGN. Zub once again takes the helm for this third Hawkeye series, which begins with Bucky in space and continues with a new Thunderbolts team led by Hawkeye. Spectrum, America Chavez, Power Man, and Persuasion return along with Gutsen Glory, an experienced cyber-soldier striving for greater glory!


The Big Apple is facing a slew of difficulties in the wake of Devil’s Reign, and it’s up to a new group of Thunderbolts to fix things. But when Clint Barton is assigned to lead this team and demonstrate that they can compete with anything the Marvel Universe has to offer, the first opponent he’ll have to deal with is himself.

“Writing Thunderbolts was my first in-universe work for Marvel and Sean Izaakse’s first Marvel project as well, so getting to launch a new version of the team here with him on the team’s 25th anniversary year is an absolute honor,” Zub said. “I am so pumped to put Clint Barton, Monica Rambeau, America Chavez and a host of others through trials and tribulations aplenty as New York’s only official super hero team. A lot of the ideas being unleashed in this series are things I’ve been wanting to do for years. Big action and big fun, drama, comedy and, of course, a few twists befitting the team that always keeps readers on their toes. Sean’s artwork has never looked better and he’s bringing his incredible skills to bear on stunning comic pages and eye-catching designs for new characters we’re adding to the mighty Marvel Universe. Our creative team is firing on all cylinders, so get ready for ‘Justice, Like Lightning’ to strike every single issue!”

Check out three covers of the first issue now, and be there when a new era of THUNDERBOLTS begins on May 25.
