SECRET INVASION PART 3 The Thunderbolts are in an all-out war against the Skrulls for the fate of Washington D.C., and things don't look good for our side! What will bring them down first--the Skrull armada? The Super-Skrull with all the powers of the original Thunderbolts? Or the loose cannons within the team itself? Can a group led by the former Green Goblin keep from imploding under pressure, or will the nation’s capital have to be relocated? Given the Thunderbolts' record, you may want to cancel that field trip!

    The final image, where Norman poses next to a very important monument, is beyond heavy-handed, but the ambiguous message about government control of super-humans is a welcome one. The remnants of Civil War may have become muddled in the chaos of the Invasion, but not so much in this book, where chaos is something all the characters live with daily, even if mostly in their own minds. I dont know where this book will head in the future, but so far its keeping up the Ellis/Deodato tone quite well. Read Full Review

    Thunderbolts #124 should be infuriating to anyone who counted himself among the fans of Warren Ellis's relaunch of the franchise. The characters are shallow, the dialogue is stilted and asinine, and the art is awkward and messy. A new creative team is on the horizon for November's issue #126, and this whole exercise smacks of the creators twiddling their thumbs until then. Read Full Review
