    Can't say I like the inclusion of the Marauders in this trade. There's very little synergy between that and the Thunderbolts. Not to mention there's a lot of wasted potential on what comes after. Star and Taskmaster's directions practically take a 180 because other lines still wanted to use them in other places, unlike what the finale would.

    Which is a real shame because there's a lot of good chemistry and action going around. I especially loved Batroc the Leaper and how he complements a number of characters including Star and Batroc. Not to mention many of the characters looked at risk of dying. Even if some changes come a little suddenly like Taskmaster's last minute decision.

    All in all, a good piece full of potential that Marvel wasted.
