So – The Defenders were an interesting group. It all starts with Strange, Namor and the Hulk – and sometimes the Surfer – but this was an unbeatable group – mainly because these guys were the heavy hitters in the MU – Groups have a hard time beating just one of them – never mind when they all get together! So, in issue #4 they started what would be a common practice in the Defenders – something called “the revolving door cast of characters”. Here comes Valkyrie! And she must like that pose because the has it again in Defenders #66.
By the way, I’m having fun going through the back issues of Hulk and others to show to you – I’m thinking about doing either the Thing or Abomination next – what do you guys think – do you like this feature – and who else, in the Hulk universe, would you like to see?
