Back from the dead and operating outside the purview of Black Panther’s Avengers and Agents of Wakanda, Black Widow creates her own Thunderbolts program to battle against Putin’s expanded Red Room.
The first recruit for Natasha’s Thunderbolts was going to be her old partner Clint. But seeing him happy in LA alongside Kate Bishop and her WCA she decides that she wants to recruit people who 1)aren’t afraid to go all the way and 2)are in her eyes somewhat expendable. Bypassing some inexperienced or less powerful picks, Nat uses some old nanotech of Fury’s to recruit the original Moonstone to her squad.
Nat knows that to deal with the threat she is facing, she needs someone who is not 1)no stranger to the a wetworks style operation, 2)has no problem going all the way, and 3)has a sense of honor/trustworthiness that can balance out the more unsavory characters she wants to include. So, Nat travels to Hell’s Kitchen and meets up with one of the deadliest people alive. And while at first they hesitate, they agree to join so long as Nat helps her deal with a certain clan of Ninja she hates...and so Elektra joins the fold.

Oh, I thought he was picking Moonstone since that was in bold. Fine, fine.

I will be back with a new pick shortly.

Mhm, he picked Moonstone in the second round. He quotes his picks to add story elements to his new picks.

It turns out it's just the newest personality manifested by Marc Spector, the Moon Knight.

Kudos to the artist on that piece because not enough redheads in comics are drawn with freckles.

My third pick:

Genis-Vell / Captain Marvel



Genis-Vell, lost and forgotten by his friends and family. A threat to the universe and all realities. A soulless corps, withering deep down in the ocean. The Unseen saw chances in the heir to the legendary Mar-Vell legacy. Brought back to life, and freed from the burden and responsibility of the Cosmic Awareness and forces he couldn’t control, Genis-Vell is given a new chance to right things gone wrong. If he fails, he will face his ultimate demise that once killed him. If he succeeds, he will step through the Siege Realization and be able to ask for one wish.

Big Genis-Vell fan. Surprised he's lasted until near the end of the third round. And also, how he's been in comic book limbo for so long.

He wasn’t on my initial main list of picks, but on my auxiliary list. But after 7 characters lost to me, he was promoted. :D

I use a more nerfed version of him, he is basically a Kree-Eternal, and not this overpowered instabile character from Thunderbolts.

I know. But how many deaths and returns have we seen since...it's been aaaages since he's been about.

Yeah Genis is cool, Avengers Forever is one of my favourite stories ever, and it did a great job showcasing Songbird and Genis as the Avengers of tomorrow (I am gonna bet that without that Songbird would have never been my first pick anyway). Part of his problem here, I think, is that since then we have been given Phyla and Hulkling shining as Mar-Vell's offspring, reducing the demand for Genis. And Noh-Varr may be getting in the way too.

Ok.

I want Batroc now. He's my guilty pleasure.

Never feel guilty for loving the Leaper. I love how ridiculously comic booky he is. Like nobody really talks about how okay it is in comics to besmirch the French. You’ll get pushback for making fun of anyone else in Europe, except the French lol

I'll never forgive how they turned Batroc into a serious character in Winter Soldier. What was wrong with an over the top comedy Frenchman.
