Some of the Defender’s appearances are literally a few pages long – these two issues are a perfect example of this. In Silver Surfer #58 – the Defenders aren’t actually attacking their sometime team mate. Instead Surfer is being made to see the Defenders but the Surfer does not fall for the trick for very long – and the Hulk, Namor and Strange crumble and disappear.
Even worse – in Thanos: Infinity Abyss Dr. Strange calls his allies to come aid him – but within a few seconds they are trapped in a cosmic cube and BAM! Hulk, Surfer and Namor are trapped! It’s almost insulting – but it’s more funny than anything!
