This classic line-up is a great little set with an all new Hulk Mini-Mate figure. The major difference is that he has messed up hair. Sub-Mariner is one of the Marvel heroes that has the ability to go toe to toe with the Hulk – and Dr. Strange and the Hulk have met up many times. One of the best stories with those 3 are Peter David’s 2 issue run where Hulk is consumed by the Dark Matter – 370 & 371 – Sub-Mariner has to fight the dark Hulk. They mention the Defender days a few times, and the Hulk even decides to help Strange because he was decent to him in the past. Alot different than the Strange that met up with the Hulk in WWH.
Valkyrie is also part of the Defenders – but has met up and battled with the Hulk many times in his comic. She’s a bad-ass and a bit scary for a girl. I have a hard time finding any women who can kick my ass as attractive. That’s why I had a hard time meeting the ladies! There are about 3 girls who can’t kick my ass, and 2 of them are under 12, and the other I married. So it was a win-win!
