"This is a good run of books, and reads well even now, a decade and change removed from the immediacy of its various twists and turns. I continue to be impressed by Busiek's ability to make odds and sods of Marvel's publishing history work ... and managing to build interesting characters out of what were initially little more than things to punch." -- Kazekage --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
About the Author
Kurt Busiek has been writing comics professionally since three days before he graduated from college in 1982, when he sold a "Tales of the Green Lantern Corps" backup story that appeared in GREEN LANTERN #162. Since then, he's worked on just about everything from ACTION COMICS to ZOT!, including runs on AVENGERS, SUPERMAN, CONAN and others, and has co-created THUNDERBOLTS, THE AUTUMNLANDS, ARROWSMITH and more. He's best known for his work on the multiple-award-winning MARVELS and ASTRO CITY.
Roger Stern has written for radio, television, the stage, and the Internet, creating scripts for everything from sketch comedy to flash-animation. For ten years, he was the senior writer of the Superman series for DC Comics. Stern has written hundreds of stories about such diverse characters as Green Lantern, Supergirl, Starman, the Atom, and the Justice League for DC Comics; and Spider-Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and the Avengers for Marvel. His first prose novel, The Death and Life of Superman, was a New York Times bestseller.
John Ostrander has been a prolific comic writer during the last two decades, working for Marvel, DC and Dark Horse. His writing ranges from superheros (JLA) to science fiction (Star Wars: Twilight) to westerns (DC's The Kents.)

We start with a three-parter of the T-Bolts taking on the Elements of Doom with new member Jolt (unaware of her team's true secret) helping and then teaming with the Heroes for Hire. Another issue has Black Widow sharing a tale of the Avengers with MACH-1 and Songbird as they begin to doubt in their criminal ways. Again, we get the great dynamic, that severa of the T-Bolts are finding they like being heroes more than being crooks and wonder if they can continue.
Then we come to the game-changing tenth issue as the Avengers and FF return and the T-Bolts are exposed. It turns out to all be part of Zemo's master plan as he begins a scheme that soon has over half the world in his grasp. The Thunderbolts must choose against Zemo (with help from Iron Man) in the 12th issue blow-out. Then, we have the two issues of fall-out with the team transported to another dimension.
Busiek proves himself a master of Marvel history, using the past in amazing ways. He captures each character perfectly from scheming Moonstone to arrogant Techno and Zemo paying off his ultimate plan with glee. The issue of the public reacting to how they've been fooled is amazing work with Jolt jarred to discover the truth of her "friends." And Busiek fits in his favorite Avenger, Iron Man, in a way that makes perfect sense and leads to a great battle with stuff like Moonstone ranting on the faults of Zemo's plan and more. It's all mixed in one great package, giving you one of the high points of late-'90's Marvel and deserves a place with any comic fan who wants to see a wonderfully original idea come to frution.
