Getting Nerd Credit - Who is the new Swordsman?

I almost never figure out these "mystery" characters things...except for when it is blatantly obvious.

So I want some nerd credit if my pick for who the new Swordsman is in New Thunderbolts is correct.


I think it is Andreas Von Strucker.

Just posting this here for posterity, so later, I can take my nerd credit.

Good God, Brian. You've gone too far this time.

Fucking "New Thunderbolts"? I don't want to ever see that mentioned on this blog again unless directly proceeded with "shit like."

I agree with you, so I'll take half credit when we eventually find out you're right.

I still won't buy the book though.

New Thunderbolts is a fun book.

And thus was our Lord Cronin in the year of our Kirby 2005 named King of the Nerds for his guessing of the New Thunderbolts Swordsman, and Lo' pity on the land if he be wrong.

The answer to the riddle of the Grail? That the King and the Comic are One. Hail Cronin!

NEW THUNDERBOLTS can suck my dick. I'd rather have my balls ground off than speculate about the new Swordsman.

A line from Matt Cook's slam poetry piece, "James Joyce."

In the latest issue, there are even more clues, that now makes it almost seem kind of obvious.

It was cooler before when I figured it out with a dearth of clues.

But now the clues are coming fast and furious, so it is a good thing I got it firmly noted that I figured it out early.

If I had a button maker, I'd make you a button that says "King Fucker Dork."

Heck, I bet as many people would buy them that would buy an issue of Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four.
