Marvel Brings Back The Original Defenders In Specials This December

by James Ferguson

Sure, we’ve got a TV show called the Defenders featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, but they weren’t the first group to take that name. That came in the unlikely alliance of Doctor Strange, the Hulk, Namor the Sub-Mariner, and the Silver Surfer. This December, Marvel Comics is getting the band back together in a new storyline called “Defenders: The Best Defense.”

Set up as five interconnected specials, each tale will focus on a unique story about each original Defender, ending with a group title. Here’s the rundown of titles:
