Marvel Now 2017 and Secret Empire Spoilers and Review for Thunderbolts #11 follows.
We open with Marvel’s patented Recap page where readers, like me who didn’t read the last issue, are caught up on why Bucky Barnes The Winter Soldier has been thrown into the past into his past self as Captain America’s sidekick Bucky during World War II.
Bucky is captured by Zemo who wants to kill him, but someone will save Bucky and it’s…
…Captain America! All Bucky has to say is Hail Hydra! However, Bucky refuses and Zemo and Captain America rocket him to his death…
Kobik, the Infinity Reality Stone made flesh, is upset because Bucky could have saved himself if he said Hail Hydra. She doesn’t want Bucky to die.
Kobik explains how she changed reality and Captain America has now been Hydra all along.
Bucky Barnes is disappointed and upset with Kobik which drives her a bit mad.
This all leads to the final issue of this series in Thunderbolts #12 where the Winter Soldier is back in the present with his knowledge of Captain America’s duplicity as we head into Secret Empire.
A fast-paced and entertaining issue. Art is an acquired taste, but competent. 7 out of 10.
