Why weren’t any of the Thunderbolts surprised to see supposedly mythical characters like King Arthur? Or in the Marvel Universe is Camelot known to have been real? It would make sense I suppose, what with so many people like Captain Britain having dealings with Merlin. I’ve enjoyed all of the Tbolts’ time-travel adventures so far, and this was no exception, as Parker has a lot of fun with the medieval setting and Walker gets to draw some really cool medieval costumes. One of the first Marvel Comics I read was the Busiek/Perez Avengers story where they all get turned medieval and this reminded me of that. Sometimes nostalgia is good, but only rarely. Perhaps the best thing about this issue was that Parker gave Camelot a real dark side, the villains here don’t appear to be monsters and trolls, but the Knights themselves and Merlin in particular. It also seems like we got our first hints as to why exactly the Thunderbolts are lost in time, it looks like it’s something to do with Man-Thing.

What I really like about this storyline is that despite escaping, the Thunderbolts are still acting somewhat heroic. I can't wait to see what happens when the other team catches up with them.
