With the latest teaser, Marvel’s original line-up of the team that wasn’t a team the Defeders stands complete. Joining Hulk, Namor and Silver Surfer is the magical Doctor Strange who appears in the latest teaser with the same “The Best Defense” caption on an image from Ron Garney and Richard Isanove.
It seems all but certain, all that is missing is the confirmation from Marvel, that we’re getting a Defenders revival series this December.
The original incarnation of the team debuted in Marvel Feature #1 in December 1971 and over the years have reunited at different times in different variations for the team around others who have claimed the name of the team that wasn’t a team.
Recently Marvel featured a more street-level version of the team that matched the Netflix show version with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist but that series came to an end when writer Brian Michael Bendis decided to move to DC Comics late last year.
Stay tuned for more teasers and information.
