COMICS: Red Leader Set To Join The Team In THUNDERBOLTS #3

We had figured when this re-powered villain showed up he would act as a new antagonist, but according to the following preview and solicitation for Thunderbolts #3, Sam Sterns is their newest member!. The Punisher also proves he doesn't know the difference between a monkey and an ape..

• The Thunderbolts are tearing their way through a bloody mission!
• But will even this crew approve of the team’s NEWEST MEMBER?
• Yeah, that’s right—the RED LEADER.

Daniel Way (W) • Steve Dillon (A)

Steve Dillon's art works in certain venues. Not sure if this is the one, but I am enjoying he interaction between Ross and some of the other characters (except Elektra, I'm not sure if she even has a personality).

beane2099@ Elektra lives? Again?! Wasn't she a Skrull? Man, I'm glad I quit Marvel comics when Disney took over.

I don't like the artwork either, seems a bit emotionless, soulless... Plus the way the characters' faces are drawn, it's like they're all elongated a bit too much...
DukeAcureds - 1/4/2013, 8:04 AM
Wait, this is just The Leader, but Red, isn't it? Not Garven Dreis. It won't be long, before we start getting Marvel/ Lucasfilm crossovers, though. I give it about a year or two.

When the did the Red Sylvester Stallone join the Thunderbolts? Is he a different guy than the Sylvester Stallone in the first few pages?

Oh wow, that's embarrassing... I thought this comic was about the Commander of Red Squadron. :P

Dillon was great on Preacher, but he makes Red Hulk look like Colossus.
polarkyle - 1/4/2013, 8:46 AM
first a red hulk, then red she hulk, now a red leader. kind of reminds me of sinestro
Rulk - 1/4/2013, 8:57 AM
The Red Leader makes sense... since Ross is sapping his cosmic gamma energy combo to revive the evil villain.

I'm not happy with the art, but the writing is spot on here. Nice dialogue between Rulk & Deadpool. Looking forward to this!

I am very torn about this book. I hated the first issue, thought it was complete garbage. I liked issue two a lot better. The art is also better on page then online somehow. I like a lot of the writing and the convo, but so far I have very little idea wtf is going on and I feel a lot of the characters are either lacking personality or differ vastly from their usual peronalities.

I am liking deadpool and Rulk, but I still make no sense of Elektra and I think Venom is bland here compared to his solo series.
dellamorte1872 - 1/4/2013, 9:56 AM
kind of silly and i dont read MARVEL any more so; is THE LEADER the same dude just red now not green? why? thats so corny, and he def looks like sinestro in them pgs^
Rulk - 1/4/2013, 9:57 AM
@DexterMorgan - Yep, that's Samuel Sterns the original Leader. He was last seen drained back to his dumber human form by the Rulk's absorption powers a year or two ago during the World War Hulks storyline. It looks like Rulk is now using his red gamma cosmic mix to bring him back.

You know things are bad when they're still beating Loeb's dead red horse.
elessarundomiel2382 - 1/4/2013, 10:36 AM
For people who are confused.............All those that were impersonated by the skrulls were captured on a different planet until they all came back to Earth. And yes if you're referring to her dying at the hands of Bullseye then yes she came back to life already from that before she was taken by skrulls.
bbarber2323 - 1/4/2013, 11:08 AM
Im begging someone to explain the Red thing to me. Red Hulk, She Hulk, Red Leader. Why are they red? Are they the same people as the green? If so what caused the red??? Please someone tell me!! you know? Youve explained stuff pretty well to me before. Thx!!
GetsugaTensho22 - 1/4/2013, 11:34 AM
...... Sinestro?
Rulk - 1/4/2013, 11:43 AM
@ bbarber - The red is due to a mix of Cosmic & Gamma energy where the Hulk & She-Hulk is just a creation of strictly gamma energy.

They are not the same people. This link should help a little :

This book gets better by leaps and bounds with each issue.
marvel72 - 1/4/2013, 2:03 PM

This book is such generic cookie cutter bs, and I knew from the first time it was announced that it was going to suck which is too bad because it has a few of my favorites in it. As soon as red hulk was ready to break venoms neck because he doesn't like to be called sir I gave up on this one.
