The team is back in action after word has come down on high about a weakness in the Thunderbolts, and they must bolster their ranks to deal with the imminent magical threats. Luke Cage calls on New Avenger DOCTOR STRANGE to help find the perfect candidate to fill the role, but bringing this person in is far from easy - which is why SATANA will make a fine Thunderbolt. Back at The Raft, the status quo is changing to an even greater extent without Luke's knowledge. Get ready for new levels of lightning-like justice!

    I don't think "Thunderbolts" has been this much fun since the original Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley run that started it all; Parker and Walker are on fire, here. (And not because they touched Man-Thing while being afraid.) It takes a fine hand to successfully create a comic primarily starring super-villains, but Parker and Walker have succeeded and then some. If you're not reading "Thunderbolts," you need to start now. Read Full Review

    Overall, Walker takes an interesting tack when depicting Satana. Despite the retention of her skin-bearing costume, she doesn't exude sex appeal. Rather, Walker creates the atmosphere of somebody playing at being sexy. It's almost like she's a kid dressing up in her mother's clothing. She just seems out of place in the whole femme fatale routine, and that's fitting given that through the entire tale, she never wanted to kill or even marginally hurt Stephen and Luke. She just wanted to be left alone and deter them from finding her. Furthermore, this flourish suits her longer history. Satana always seemed uncomfortable with her status and just wanted to be good.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 18, 2011

    Another great issue of Thunderbolts for Parker and gang. He's really showing what kind of chops he has as a writer by doing such a great job with this team book (think of all the writers who stink at team books). It's also worth a shout-out to the editorial staff on this book because they are allowing/encouraging Parker to write great single-issue comics. This is not a series that is written for the trade as it is just telling one big, run-on story. This issue (again) has about 3 issues worth of story and really strong art. Read Full Review

    This is easily Jeff Parker's least entertaining issue of Thunderbolts yet… but that doesn't mean that it wasn't an enjoyable read. In fact, if you're a fan of the series I recommend checking it out. Just know that while the series' story takes a couple major steps, it probably won't be the issue you're handing to your friends to show them why they should be reading Thunderbolts.
