Put up your “Best Defense” as the original Defenders reunite this December
For a team that’s not a team, the original Defenders has a pretty solid lineup: Doctor Strange, Hulk, Namor, and Silver Surfer. I mean, seriously, right? When you have to think long and hard about who would be considered they heavyweight, that’s a good selection of characters.
While more grounded heroes like Daredevil and Iron Fist have been running around as the Defenders for a bit, the original lineup will reunite this December for a new team-up event titled Defenders: The Best Defense. Plot details are scarce, but the story will be told trough a series of one-shots that are being helmed by some of Marvel’s hottest creators. Check out the details below.
