New York is under the control of Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin and his campaign against superheroes has caused him to recruit his fellow super villains to take them out with the authority of the Mayor’s office as his new team of Thunderbolts.

In the aftermath of the Devil’s Reign storyline, there will be a new team of Thunderbolts assembled to clean up the city lead by Clint Barton aka Hawkeye.

This May, New York City will have its own authorized team of super heroes in THUNDERBOLTS #1! Rising out of the destruction of DEVIL’S REIGN, this all-new lineup of Thunderbolts will star in a limited series by superstar creative team, writer Jim Zub and artist Sean Izaakse. 

“Writing Thunderbolts was my first in-universe work for Marvel and Sean Izaakse’s first Marvel project as well, so getting to launch a new version of the team here with him on the team’s 25th anniversary year is an absolute honor,” Zub said. “I am so pumped to put Clint Barton, Monica Rambeau, America Chavez and a host of others through trials and tribulations aplenty as New York’s only official super hero team. A lot of the ideas being unleashed in this series are things I’ve been wanting to do for years. Big action and big fun, drama, comedy and, of course, a few twists befitting the team that always keeps readers on their toes. Sean’s artwork has never looked better and he’s bringing his incredible skills to bear on stunning comic pages and eye-catching designs for new characters we’re adding to the mighty Marvel Universe. Our creative team is firing on all cylinders, so get ready for ‘Justice, Like Lightning’ to strike every single issue!”

Thunderbolts #1 begins May 25, 2022.
