Marvel proved that they can take a team of no-name aliens and rocket them to superstardom with "Guardians of the Galaxy." Now it’s time for them to do that with a group of quasi-reformed ex-super villains. The original "Thunderbolts" concept by Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley, which saw the Masters of Evil undergo a heroic makeover to act out Baron Zemo’s master plan, was pretty light on the comedy. The more recent run by Jeff Parker, Kev Walker and Declan Shalvey featured the exact right amount of one-liners, odd interactions and inept camaraderie that McKay proved he can handle in both Anchorman films. The snarky Moonstone, goofy Boomerang, earnest Songbird, creepy Ghost and devilish Satana would all come alive under McKay’s direction, as they all try to outsmart and one-up each other while begrudgingly going on government-backed missions. With Thunderbolts, McKay would get to put the big action skills he honed on "The Other Guys" to work for Marvel.
