Last month, writer Daniel Way told Newsarama he'd be writing a Marvel NOW! title, and that it would be "a team book and... yeah, that's about all I can say."IGN.com, he is in fact scheduled to join a team. "At some point a few months ago I was informed that Marvel wanted to end the book and would be spinning Punisher out into a different team book and I wouldn’t be writing it," Rucka told IGN. As for other gun-toting heroes who don't mind skirting the law? Cable is supposed to have a higher Marvel NOW! profile soon, and his sometimes girlfriend Domino is quite the crackshot herself. Sticking with the femme fatales, Silver Sable may be presumed dead over in Amazing Spider-Man, but hey, that's not necessarily an impediment in joining a team in comic books. Bullseye (also currently deceased) has been a member of the Thunderbolts and the Dark Avengers (the current title of the book). And Venom, now a super-soldier in his own right, augments his symbiotic abilities with firepower. And hey, since it's most likely a team book, nothing says it can't be any combination of these characters. As for what this may mean for the recently rebranded Dark Avengers, Jeff Parker's title that changed from Thunderbolts only three months ago... just recently, Parker revealed that the Thunderbolts storyline — and role — in Dark Avengers will end in November, so it's possible a new Thunderbolts book could coexist with Dark Avengers. When we have the answers, you'll have the answers and if precedent from last month holds, that should be one week from today. More from Newsarama:
