Format: Paperback
This volume collects Thunderbolts issues #144-147. The storyline takes place after the Siege and fall of Norman Osborne, the Raft prison and the Thunderbolts programme is under new management, and Luke Cage is recruiting a new team, and Songbird will be leading Moonstone, the Ghost, the Juggernaut and Crossbones And the Man-Thing will be providing transport thanks to his affinity with the time/space nexus in his swamp - I don't write this stuff, it's what Hank Pym tells us - and an implant provided by Dr Pym allowing Luke Cage to pilot him. Their training flight presents them with Baron Zemo, who offers them a prison break, a run in with some trolls who have escaped from fallen Asgard, and a cave full of radioactive Terragen crystals, which may have infected a team member or two; only time will tell...

The story and art is up to the usual standard for the Thunderbolts, so if you have enjoyed past adventures, you should enjoy this one. If you are new to the title, this is a good enough place to start.

I read a library copy of the paperback.
This began the re-launch of the Thunderbirds title after the dawn of the 'Heroic Age' throughout Marvel.
It is actually a good interesting and fresh spin on the Thunderbolts.
Luke Cage makes a much better leader of the villains-turned-potential-heroes than ever he did an Avengers figurehead.
The new team has a few old faces - Songbird, Moonstone, Fixer and Mach V along with some interesting new ones Ghost, Juggernaut and Crossbones but most inspired and surprisingly interesting is the use of the Man-Thing.
A lot of this short trade is setting up the status quo, and as such it's okay but there is a feeling that past glories of this title may be difficult to exceed.
Art is a bit scratchy and vague with the big-guys, Juggernaut and Crossbones varying in depiction from huge to warehouse-sized!
The issues and storylines that followed this generation of T-Bolts varied a lot in quality and the signs were already here that it was likely to be a bumpy ride.
Worth a look.

A Good Start 28 April 2012
By Attidude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
To be honest, I had a lot of expectations from this book. Though I wasn't very happy, I wan't very disappointed either.
For the first time (unless I'm mistaken) Thunderbolts are led by a Hero (Luke Cage). A Team woth (mostly) new members are chosen. The lucky ones are Moonstone , Ghost, Crossbones, Juggernaut and Man-thing. The story starts with Luke cage meeting all the selected members, making them go through a Test and then finally taking them on their first mission, to capture some trolls that escaped during the Asgard-siege event. Since it's the team's first outing, there are some insubordinations and failues but somehow the Thunderbolts complete their first misson with of course help from Cage and Songbird. And soon after their first mission, starts their second, where they have to investigate the disappearance of some S.H.I.E.L.D and U.N agents. And then, the last issue is about a minor riot/breakout in the RAFT. This is weakest issue I felt as no explantion was given about the reason for the breakout.
This book is more focused on characters, rather than story. Maybe it was intended as this is the first collection. Guess Parker is trying to establish the Team dynamics , which he succeeds at extremely well. Charcaterizations are spot-on. The characters are extremely likeable.
In terms of action, I found the book lacking but hey, it's just the start and Jeff Parker has done full justice to the script. His team of Thunderbolts is one of the best that ever was . I'm sure Parker has lot of stuff planned in the upcoming stories.
One thing I didn't like about this book was the art. Kev Walker is ok but he's not that good with faces. Moonstone looks ugly. Also, another thing I didn't like is the title. "Cage" sounded ridiculous. It's not this book is about Luke Cage; he's just their new boss, that's all. Sad how parker couldn't come up with a more appropriate title. But these are the only minor complaints about this book that I have.
I have bought ALL the new Thunderbolts titles ("Cage", "Shadowland", "Violent Rejections", "Fear Itself" and "The Great Escape"). No disappointments, so far. Hell, I'm even enjoying this series!
If you are a Thunderbolt fan, this is a must. Even new readers will enjoy this immensely, as hardly any background history is required for this series. This book is just the right time to start reading Thunderbolts!

Cage Era Brings Something Much Needed 14 Aug. 2013
By Royland Odell Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every incarnation of the Thunderbolts have always been exciting, but Luke Cage's ' Bolts are a great team. Sure you've got mainstays Moonstone, Songbird, Fixer and Mach V, but newcomers to the team and supporting cast for this book is great.

It's also good to see usage of a maimed hero like USAgent and make him shine( he has always been a favorite). I like Jeff Parker's dialogue, which he uses so well, especially Moonstone and Crossbones.

I like this leadership role for Luke Cage as opposed to his time as leader of the New Avengers, because it puts him on the same level as everyone else because most of the missions are basically kill or be killed, every man for himself type missions and the thunderbolts haven't really had a "Group Dynamic" thing going on since Hawkeye left. I like the new selection process (It was interesting to see Cage and Charles Xavier converse about Juggernaut's inclusion ). And to know Captain America, Thor and Iron Man are only a holler away is a good thing

The characters Troll and Man-Thing I like also and the whole backdrop of everything taking place in the cozy confines of the maximum security superhero prison, The Raft makes this title all the more fun.

Check it out.
Lock Me Up, I Love It 20 Jan. 2012
By SilverSteele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been reading the Thunderbolts series since Norman Osborne took over post-Civil War and this is the third roster to appear in that time. I started reading this with some reservations because of that, but the characters they established here are strong, and the team dynamic is simply amazing. Even characters like Crossbones and Luke Cage I've never enjoyed have shifted over to my "like" column after reading this. The story may not be deep, but the characters certainly are.
Cage leader of the Thunderbolts 26 April 2012
By DCgreen26 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Getting a better feel for the Luke Cage character is great. ManThing character very nice, wish I knew more about it. Nice look with songbird appearances. I just love this book and thunderbolts comics altogether.
