Summary: Infused with temporal energy, Zemo quantum leaps through time, meeting each of the 12 previous Baron Zemos. In modern times, a graduate student named Wendell Volker is studying Helmut -- and murdering anyone with Zemo blood.
Continuity: All of the previous Baron's are named and given distinct personalities and histories. Zemo ultimately returns to the present, to Castle Zemo, and to a vaguely defined partnership with Volker.
Comments: Fabian Nicieza's and Tom Grummett's final Thunderbolts collaboration looks good and reads okay, but it's a pretty feeble story. Zemo's time-hops don't amount to much, while Volker's crusade against "Zemo blood" is both unpleasantly bloody and too easily stopped.
