Marvel Comics has dropped a mystery teaser that features the incredible immortal Hulk in the spotlight. The image by artist Ron Garney & colorist Richard Isanove carries a release date of December 2018 along with the caption “The Best Defense.”
While there is no other information, it seems potentially likely that this very well could be some revival of The Defenders with the original classic lineup that included the Hulk, Doctor Strange, Namor and Silver Surfer. This 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.
More teasers and more information are likely to come out soon, and this could even be something besides a Defenders revival. Stay tuned for more information.
