After Warren Ellis' awesome Thunderbolts run, I suppose it's normal to be disappointed in what follows. Gage's take on the Thunderbolts during Secret Invasion was enjoyable, but Diggle's is mediocre (at best) in this trade. The team is missing its witty banter, which kept the book entertaining to the extreme. Instead, it's replaced with a lot of splash and gore, but very little substance. The characters feel like flat renditions of themselves. ( )

"Norman Osborn's Dark Reign has begun-- and the only people who stand in the way of his mad power grab are the very super-villains he trained! In the wake of the Thunderbolts' help repelling the alien Skrull invasion, Osborn was promoted to head the new security initiative replacing the badly wounded S.H.I.E.L.D. And while his team is comprised of super-villains, some lack Osborn's unique killer instinct. And in Osborn's eyes, that means they have no place in his new world order. Now, Penance, Swordsman, Radioactive Man and Songbird find themselves locked in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.
