The Thunderbolts are a Marvel Comics superhero team, which consists mostly of reformed supervillains. The group first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #449 (January 1997), and was created by Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley.
A new team composed of Red Hulk, Deadpool, Elektra, Agent Venom, and Punisher debuted as a part of Marvel NOW! major relaunch. Written by Daniel Way with art by Steve Dillon. This incarnation is not a government-sponsored team.
Red Hulk assembles his incarnation of the Thunderbolts to be a strike team that is close to “Code Red.” He has gathered Deadpool, Elektra, Punisher, and Agent Venom because “their conditions cannot be cured.” Red Hulk has his Thunderbolts do things that are similar to X-Force. Red Hulk has obtained Samuel Sterns’ body and hooks it up to a machine that emits Red Gamma Radiation onto Samuel Sterns. Deadpool later finds Samuel Sterns’ as a Red Leader with no apparent powers as he expresses his view that the Punisher won’t be pleased. Punisher finds Red Leader’s body and shoots him between the eyes disrupting whatever plans Red Hulk has for Red Leader.
Red Hulk brings the Thunderbolts along to deal with gamma technology on the island of Kata Jaya where the technology was supplied by Madman. During the fight against Madman, Red Hulk took the Leader to a pipe line that feeds Gamma energy to Madman’s lab. Red Hulk then absorbed the energy himself and then forced fed it to the Leader, bringing him back to life.
The Team decides that they can’t do only missions for Red Hulk, as none truly trust him, so a system of give and take missions is developed, in which the team does a mission for General Ross, then a mission for a random member. The first random name pulled for a member is Punisher, who chooses a mission to take out a crime family in New York. The story arc includes tie ins to Infinity. Red Leader begins to get his brain siphoned by Thanos’ assistant, but is saved by Red Hulk. Afterwords, Red Leader starts having visions of how to kill every member of the Team, but determines that something is wrong with his plan, there was an unseen variable that stopped him from succeeding.
Ghost Rider joins the team, when Mercy was dragged to hell, after the team makes a deal with Mephisto to put him back in power of the Underworld.
Deadpool’s name gets pulled next for a mission, but Venom asks to be given the mission, as he is leaving the team. He wants to let the symbiote take over and have the team fight it, which they do, to reasure him that if he would lose control of the symbiote, there would be someone that could stop him.
Much later, the team tracked down Doctor Faustus and the Punisher wanted to kill him for killing the children at a school. Red Hulk stopped him and wanted to recruit Faustus, but the Punisher does not like the idea and quits the team. While going to the refrigerator, the Punisher found a bomb with a note saying, “You don’t quit on us. You’re fired.” Angered, the Punisher believes Red Hulk set the bomb and began hunting down his former teammates and killed Red Leader and Doctor Faustus. However, it revealed Red Leader was alive and set the bomb knowing the Punisher will come after each member of the Thunderbolts and set a Life Model Decoy to fool the other Thunderbolts.
