    The Story: Zub brings this story to a great close with a story that showcases how unique and interesting the characters are while also giving America Chaves the chance to shine. I like the conflict and how it is personal for the characters, especially Clint. The action is great and I love that the story still keeps its comedic edge throughout. The Art: Both artists deliver some beautifully detailed and visually thrilling art that captures the eye and the imagination throughout.

    Thunderbolts #5 is a fine ending to the series. But, it leaves us wanting more. Gutsen Glory and Eegro deserve arcs of their own exploring their history and backgrounds. Hopefully we get more with Zub at the hub. The series has balanced mystery, action, humor, and a great team dynamic and deserves more to expand all of that and entertain readers more.

    Thunderbolts #5 ends the limited series the only way it could for a nearly complete conclusion. The main villain makes sense for the surreal troubles the team has endured, and most of the threads get a complete explanation. That said, a few questions remain unanswered, and while the issue doesn't feel rushed, the arc certainly does.

    This new Thunderbolts series has been very hit or miss since the start, and frankly never been able to stick to the thesis that it seemed to be presenting in issue #1. The finale however manages to stick the landing, delivering a largely self-contained story that explores all our characters and gives most of them a chance to shine. While the previous issues have often left something to be desired, artists Sean Izaakse with Netho Diaz (featuring inks by Izaakse and Victor Nava) give this one a more memorable flair than the others, in particular for how it explores the big villain's powers.

    I feel bad for writers who have to cram all the ideas they might have for a new team book into only five issues. This ending is a fine and somewhat simple ending to this excellent mini-series.
