Here’s what Marvel.com wrote about this new iteration of the Thunderbolts

This December, Bucky Barnes will put together an all-new squad of THUNDERBOLTS to kick off a revolution in the Marvel Universe!

Writing duo “Hivemind” Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing’s explosive transformation of Bucky Barnes continues alongside acclaimed artist Geraldo Borges in this new ongoing series that follows Bucky Barnes in his thrilling new role as the Revolution. With the demise of the Outer Circle, Bucky is the last person alive who holds the power of a century of dark secrets. Now, he’ll use that knowledge to embark on a bold quest to take down Marvel’s greatest threats and he’ll call upon some of the toughest, deadliest, and cunning players in the world to assist him!

The new THUNDERBOLTS lineup includes Black Widow, Sharon Carter AKA Destroyer, White Widow, Red Guardian, U.S. Agent, and Shang-Chi. Allied together under the command of Bucky and the one and only Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, readers can expect high-stakes missions in each issue as this crew sets out to dish out long overdue justice throughout the Marvel Universe!

Bucky Barnes, the Revolution, just inherited a mountain of covert intel and he has one objective: justice… like lightning! He’s going after the establishment, the people no one else is willing or able to take down, and he’ll do whatever it takes to win. Teaming with the mysterious Contessa Valentina Allegra De Fontaine, Bucky assembles a team of black-ops heavy hitters to pursue high-profile targets like the Red Skull, Kingpin, and even Doctor Doom himself. No one is safe from the Thunderbolts!

“Welcome to Operation: Worldstrike! The Hivemind is wildly excited to continue the saga we began with Carmen Carnero in CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY—while also starting anew with a dangerous and unpredictable cast from across the Marvel Universe,” Kelly and Lanzing said. “The call has gone out to all those who call the shadows their home; every spy, assassin, and renegade has a part to play in Bucky Barnes’ all-encompassing and uncompromising hit on the singular, monstrous living symbol of fascism: the Red Skull. Alongside our old friend Geraldo Borges, we’re taking this opportunity to tell a very different kind of team book. This is a whole new era for the Thunderbolts and it starts with a four-part espionage epic, an ever-shifting cast and a single overarching goal: to tear down a century of Nazi evil with justice like lightning.”

And yes, the thought doesn’t escape me that the lineup is very similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the Thunderbolts…

Even MCU Val is involved and calling the shots. Guess we could even see villains joining in future issues like Taskmaster and Ghost who are already in the team in the upcoming Marvel film.

Last thing, the cover we featured here is just the promotional cover for Thunderbolts # 1 and not the regular cover. There’s still a lot of months before the title’s release so we could be seeing more soon.
