Synopsis:
After her first training session, Jolts asks Citizen V how did the Thunderbolts gather. He subsequently tells her, in his own distinctive manner, how he picked up a distress call from another dimension. Set out to retrieve the sender, he required the help of the man who would become Techno, while the future Songbird was rescued after losing both her partner and her power. Next he drafted a talked-about aviation engineer looking for promotion, but then Onslaught happened and his original plan was send astray. It was only after Atlas appearance that the idea of replacing the lost heroes took shape. Their first appearance would be during a massive breakout at the Vault, where Atlas, Citizen V and Songbird spoil the escape while the rest contact the last original member of the aptly-named Thunderbolts.
