Like Mac Gargan before him, Flash Thompson will apparently be taking his symbiotic companion to the Thunderbolts team. Judging by this cover for Thunderbolts #1, out this December, Venom will be teaming up with Red Hulk, Punisher, Elektra, and Deadpool. The creative team will be Daniel Way and Steve Dillon. Daniel Way previously wrote Venom in the 2003 Venom solo series.
According to Daniel Way, “[a] lot of what’s informed my approach to this new series—and what I believe will resonate with readers—is already out there in the zeitgeist; frustration, despondency, a deep-seeded desire to strike back in a decided—and, if necessary, drastic—and sure manner at forces which have systematically dismantled and/or subverted such constructs as transparency, equality and basic human rights.”
The systematic subversion of constructs? Golly, this sure sounds like it’ll be pretty darn intellectual!
