I’ve been a fan of the Defenders all the way back to the days when The Hulk hung out at Doctor Strange’s Sanctorum and ate nothing but beans, while Norrin Radd hovered and looked melancholy.  One thing I’ve learned since that series ended is that the Defenders will continue to rise over and over again, and probably get cancelled within 15 issues.  Still, if I had a choice of new teams every couple of years and no Defenders at all, I’ll just have to soldier on and deal with repeated heartbreak when things go sour. It’s kind of like BEING

Or – “We’re Almost Out Of 70’s Marvel Heroes To Revive…  Have They Done Tagak Yet?” The last few years at Marvel have been full of interesting takes on heroes, albeit some that just aren’t viable in the long-term.  The repeated attempts to revamp Heroes For Hire have established Misty Knight as a badass on a par with her on-again/off-again boy-toy Iron Fist, while the Valkyrie has once again been in the spotlight due to the events of ‘The Fearless.’  Can a girl from New York and a girl from Valhalla make it together in the Marvel Universe?  And will

“Or – “Marvel’s Most Maligned (Non) Team Title…’ It always puzzles me why some folks seem to have a problem with The Defenders as a concept.  “They’re not team players,” I have been told, and indeed, that was part of the POINT of the original four Defenders aligning.  Many great and potentially great characters were Defenders, and the book ran for over a decade during times when folks like Green Arrow and the X-Men weren’t considered viable solo characters.  Honestly, I blame it all on ‘Secret Defenders,’ which is to the original Defenders title what Zero Hour was the the
