Moonstone needs to be the villain if they do a Carol Danvers movie.

Karla Sofen is a Doctor of Psychology.  Melissa Gold never even went to high school, so you might think she’d be ill-equipped to handle Karla’s mindgames.
Except that after Melissa ran away from home and landed in jail, she became a professional wrestler.  And wrestling has its own psychology—the mindgames that the performers play on the audience, to direct their emotions one way or another. 
The layman would think this is pretty simple stuff—the good guys wear the local sports team’s jersey, the bad guys tear up little kids’ signs, that kind of thing.  But working a crowd can be done in many subtle and complex ways.  The best wrestlers can do it without saying a word, all through how and when they perform moves in the ring.
However, Karla wouldn’t know any of that, much less appreciate it.  To her wrestling is two people in their underwear stomping the mat to make it sound like their punches are connecting.  Admitting that it might be sneakier than that would be akin to seriously examining flat earth theories, so someone like her doesn’t even consider learning more.  I see this attitude all the time among non-fans, usually when the mainstream media thinks wrestlers went off-script because they won’t admit that they don’t understand how the script works.
So for all of Moonstone’s college education, her pride won’t let her see that Songbird probably learned all the same tricks in the school of hard knocks.  Karla’s better at manipulating people, to be sure.  But Melissa’s the only one who knows they’re both playing the game, which is a major advantage.  I think that’s part of the reason why they’re so evenly matched, and why their tense relationship is so naturally compelling.

You know what film I REALLY want for Marvel Phase III?

THE MOTHER FUCKING THUNDERBOLTS!!!

What’s that?  Haven’t heard of them?  
Well, think of the Avengers…but they are actually…

VILLAINS DISGUISED AS HEROES!

Course, many of them actually went over to actually become heroes.
What’s that?  Still not convinced?  How about two BAMF female leads?!

Seriously, you all would go nuts for this team if you got this film!

What’s that?  You want Red Hulk and his murder squad?  Well TOUGH, they don’t have what made Thunderbolts great!

So yeah, that’s the Marvel film I’m crossing my fingers for Phase 3.  I mean, Fiege said they were gonna focus on some titles with female leads.  What better one than T-Bolts?

Seriously, they’re awesome.

…and ya’ll gonna be fangirls/fanboys, and it’ll be awesome.

Official Frienemies.

You know, if this is the last time I ever see these two?  I would be completely okay with it.

2) I hear you’re also on “Thunderbolts” for Marvel NOW! I have to ask whether we’ll see the likes of Songbird and/or Moonstone during your run in the title.


It’s very possible. I really enjoyed writing Moonstone in “Dark Wolverine.”

-Daniel Way about Thunderbolts 

Sep 7

One can only run so long and so far until they must face down their fates.

For Thunderbolts members Centurius, Moonstone, Boomerang, Troll, Man-Thing, Mister Hyde, and Ghost, November 21 marks the conclusion of their run, as in DARK AVENGERS #183, Jeff Parker marks the end of an era for the team of cons turned government operatives turned unwilling time travelers.

“I’ll certainly miss Hyde and Satana, and Man-Thing,” the writer confesses. “Troll took a while to develop and get to the point I wanted, so that’s another tough loss. The surprising ones were Boomer and Centurius, I didn’t expect them to be as much fun to write as they are.”

Nonetheless, Parker knows the time has come for this bold ending.

“It bookends the coming together at the beginning of the ‘Cage’ arc perfectly,” he asserts. “You can argue how much progress each character made—Man-Thing made quite a lot—but they’ve all been impacted by their time in the Thunderbolts. It clearly means something for each of them.”

Before the team can take a curtain call, however, they do have one last hanging thread to confront: ex-teammate Cain Marko, the formerly unstoppable Juggernaut. Despite the pall the events of Fear Itself cast over his relationship to the Thunderbolts, Marko does find support in his time of need.

“Cain Marko’s biggest goal is always to be free,” explains Parker. “That’s what John Walker offers him temporarily, if he’ll help. And Walker isn’t even sure why. He’s going on the word of Ghost, of all people, but he’s come to have a strange respect for Ghost.”

Even as the Thunderbolts depart, DARK AVENGERS continues forward with the aura of Ghost and the rest still being felt.

“This is where [the Dark Avengers] truly take form, and grow naturally out of the book that came before,” Parker contends. “Just when it looks like they’ve hit the end of the road, they really begin in earnest. They were initially brought together by Osborn, but they’ve been put on their path by the Thunderbolts. It’s the legacy of that team.”

It cannot be surprising then that the final actions of the Thunderbolts alters the path of the Dark Avengers and sets the book up for its future.

“As you’ll see, what happens right at the end [of #183] kicks it all off,” teases Parker. “It grows organically right out of the story thanks to one of those Thunderbolts I mentioned missing!”
