When the impossible is everywhere and the very fabric of reality is threatened by insanity, the world needs more than super heroes — they need Defenders! Enter Defenders #1, from the top-selling creative team of Matt Fraction (Fear Itself, Invincible Iron Man, Mighty Thor) and Terry Dodson (Uncanny X-Men), as Doctor Strange assembles a new team of heroes to face a new kind of threat that will leave readers shocked.
The original series first appeared in December 1971 so the re-booted Defenders will mark 40 years of justice at the hand of a rotating line-up between 1972 and 1986.
Heroes like Nighthawk, Beast, Valkyrie and Daimon Hellstrom aka the Son of Satan have all graced the pages of Marvel’s Defenders and the new books will have the original leader Doctor Strange teaming up with Iron Fist, Namor, Red She-Hulk, Hulk, the Silver Surfer and more of the favorite Marvel Heroes.
They will band together exploring corners of the Marvel Universe you never knew existed for missions so deadly they have to be kept secret. Once a Defender, always a Defender – no matter the cost or sacrifice.
To support the launch of this major new series, Marvel is promoting Defenders through the following retailer support program:
