Marvel Teases Thunderbolts-Esque Team in the Wake of “Avengers: Standoff”

With the tagline “Injustice, like lightning…”, Marvel’s latest teaser image features a handful of silhouettes against a stormy sky. The teaser appears to homage the “Thunderbolts” #1 cover, which suggests a new “Thunderbolts” series will follow “Avengers: Standoff.”



Like their “Uncanny Inhumans” teaser, Marvel has intentionally left some figures in this new image obscured. Only one figure is illuminated: a you child washed in whites and blues. While it isn’t clear who this child is, they may be a main player in “Avengers: Standoff.”

In March, the core “Avengers” titles will descend on a small, mysterious town called Pleasant Hill in “Avengers: Standoff,” where each team discovers a dangerous secret about their allies. Kicking off with a special “alpha” issue by Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz, the story is set to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Captain America as Steve Rogers is assaulted in an idillic town called Pleasant Hill.

If Marvel follows in the footsteps of their “Uncanny Inhumans” reveal, we’ll likely see the other characters in the teaser image unveiled one-by-one over the next few weeks.

No title, creative team or release date has yet been announced for the series.
