Marvel Comics Push Thunderbolts #3 – Is It Down To Captain America And Kobik?

So, Captain America: Steve Rogers #2 came out this week. And revealed, spoilers, that Kobik, the sentient cosmic cube used by SHIELD to create Pleasant Hill, has been under the control and influence of the Red Skull the whole time, and turned Captain America into a Hydra agent. And not a gay one either.

But Kobik has also been running around the Thunderbolts comic book as well, which has published two issues so far.

Thunderbolts (2016-) 001-008  Yeah, Bucky doesn't know the half of it.

So while she can come in very useful…

Thunderbolts (2016-) 001-012There are some inherent dangers.

Thunderbolts (2016-) 001-015And some people end up in the cornfield…

Thunderbolts 002-003Though she can be appealed to on a childlike human level…  Thunderbolts 002-007… after Captain America: Steve Rogers #2, we now know that she is under the direct influence of the Red Skull. So what is she being told to do? What are her real motivations?

Thunderbolts 002-021

Well Marvel Comics have decided that retailers haven't got enough copies of Thunderbolts #3 and are matching their orders for #2, for free. It is standard for retailers to drop orders from one early issue to the next. But in Thunderbolts #3. there should be more to go around than expected.

Shame they didn't do that for Uncanny Inhumans #11…
