Exclusive Preview: Thunderbolts #4

Hawkeye, Spectrum, America Chavez, Power Man/Victor Alvarez, Gutsen Glory, Persuasion, and Eegro the Unbreakable. Together, they are the new Thunderbolts…and they kind of suck as a team. New York City mayor Luke Cage hastily put together this band of misfits because the Thunderbolts are the only heroes legally allowed to fight crime in NYC. Cage also had a previous connection to the team, and he didn’t want to let Wilson Fisk have the last word on the group. However, the new Thunderbolts are quickly becoming a PR disaster.

Hawkeye had a successful stint as the leader of the Thunderbolts and the West Coast Avengers in the past. Regardless, he seems to have lost his touch as a leader. Additionally, Spectrum seems content to let Hawkeye fail rather than help him succeed.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Thunderbolt #4, Jim Zub and artist Sean Izaakse show us what it would look like if the team was actually successful. Note that everyone starts out in their ’80s and ’90s incarnations. And since Gutsen has no counterpart in the past, he’s basically Cable. Unfortunately for Hawkeye, even his dreams are working against him.
