Thunderbolts in “A Force To Be Reckoned” by Matt Duarte
Description: The Thunderbolts sit in the briefing room of the Raft. Luke Cage is talking in front of them, with some computer screens in the back that we can't really see yet. Around the room we can see Juggernaut, Moonstone, and Fixer sitting down, while Songbird and Mach V stand to the side and Ghost floats on the back.
LUKE CAGE: Alright, next mission ain't going to be easy. We are not going against a random bunch of villains, or some mindless goons. We are talking about a highly trained and organized military group operating on American soil.
JUGGERNAUT: What? No way these geeks are doing this.
MOONSTONE: About time they grew some cojones, if you ask me. They could only play the victim card for so long.
GHOST: It is not surprising at all. All organizations turn corrupt in the end, so it was only a matter of time before they became just like their enemies.
Description: Close-up on Songbird, she looks concerned and questioning the wisdom of the mission before her.
SONGBIRD: Are we sure about this, Luke? How do we know we are not playing this to someone else's tune.
Description: Close up on Fixer. He is looking at some screens before him, not looking up as he talks
FIXER: The data checks out. We don't know how the higher-ups got hold of this, but the photographic and video evidence is damning. And gruesome.
Description: Turn around, revealing Luke again, standing directly in front of the previous computer screens. In them, we can see photos of Wolverine, Angel, Psylocke, Deadpool, and Fantomex, the members of Uncanny X-Force.
LUKE CAGE: No way around it, Thunderbolts. We are going up against these killers, even if we normally know them as the good guys.
LUKE CAGE: The X-Men have a lot of explaining to do...
Next: Thunderbolts vs. Uncanny X-Force.
