Thunderbolts: Power Tools

Nefarius stalks the Thunderbolts, from Iron Man 1999

"Power Tools" (1999/12/02) from Iron Man 1999 (August 1999)

Reader Rating: Average; Thunderbolts Interest: Low

Summary: When a mysterious force is discovered to be draining power from ionic people (and corpses), SHIELD agent Jenna Carlisle teams up with Iron Man to track the source. The path leads to Sicily, where the killer is revealed to be Count Nefaria, vampirically killing other ionic creatures to keep himself alive. Along the way Iron Man tackles Whiplash, Nitro, and the Deathsquad (Airborne, Boobytrap, Firefight, Rocket-Launcher, Smokescreen). Brief appearances from the Crazy Eight, Nefarius, Therak, the Thunderbolts (Atlas, Charcoal, Hawkeye, Jolt, Moonstone, Songbird) and Wonder Man.

Continuity: During a lull, the Thunderbolts rescue people trapped in a Denver fire. Karla’s old tormentor, Nefarius (Lloyd Bloch, the original Moonstone), meets his end.

Comments: Unremarkable; a string of encounters, none of which has much impact.
