Marvel announces that the defenders are returning

Defenders will return to action. Marvel Comics confirmed that a new Defenders project is in the works via a teaser included at the end of Defenders # 5, released Wednesday. The teaser gives no hints as to which characters will make up this version of the ever-changing Defenders list, or which creators will contribute to the series. Defenders # 5 shuts down the power Defenders miniseries by author Al Ewing and artist Javier Rodriguez. The miniseries expanded with plot seeds Ewing planted elsewhere in the Marvel Universe, including Marvel comics # 1000 and follow up on Harpy’s whereabouts after leaving Bruce Banner’s track in The Immortal Hulk.

In addition to Harpy (Betty Ross), the Defenders list in this series also includes the founders of Defenders Silver Surfer and Doctor Strange along with the living fog Cloud, Galactus’ mother Taaia and the mysterious Masked Raider that Ewing introduced in Marvel comics # 1000. Defenders # 5 finally reveals his identity.

Roy Thomas conceived the Defenders, and debuted with them in the 1971s Marvel feature # 1. They have long been the slightly more silly, relatively ragtag counterparts to Earth’s Most Powerful Heroes in Avengers. Various incarnations of the group were formed and dissolved over the years.

Marvel Television created a street vigilante version of Defenders that had little in common with the team’s original premise. It brought together the main characters in Marvel’s four Netflix shows: Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Daredevil. This version of Defenders later entered the comics for a series of 10 tracks by Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez. Defenders returned to its original premise in Defenders: The best defense, a series of one-shots focusing on the founding members of the team (Hulk, Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer and Namor), which preceded Ewing and Rodriguez’s miniseries. Before Netflix Defenders, the Fearless defenders series focused on a team that serves as members of the Asgardian Valkyrior.
