King In Black: Thunderbolts 001 (of 3)
> KINGPIN’S KILLERS VERSUS AN ARMY OF UNKILLABLE DRAGONS! An army of evil space dragons have come to attack Earth and are starting with New York. MAYOR FISK has a plan for that. Assembling a group of killers, mercenaries, and just generally pretty horrible people like TASKMASTER, RHINO, STAR, MR. FEAR, and BATROC THE LEAPER, Mayor Fisk tasks them with saving the city or die trying…or die right then and there. The fate of the entire world may rest in the hands of the absolute worst people in the Marvel Universe. What could go wrong?

The Thunderbolts are backoffkoffkoff... Fisk's suicide squad selections sure seem sub-par. Rooting for homicidal jerkwad leads gets tiring real fast if there's nothing clever or nuanced, interesting or intriguing in the story pitch. Star (another Marvel character with TOO GENERIC a codename) from the Captain Marvel series is fairly unknown to me - can somebody fill me in on her status quo or Q-rating catch? While Mr.Fear, as a legacy villain, has potential to be all-new and all-different than Dr. Jonathan Crane - this did not do it for me. Taskmaster compliant as an unmasked Captain America substitute slave just lowers his recyclable B-List standing here. The fodder superhumans were blatantly throwaway. At least Rhino managed to escape Fisk's In Media Res announcement that the whole team will (reportedly?) die. And Batroc... managed one heck of leap from dock to boat... when he wasn't kicking a dragon. *koff*
