The strange part is the mention of the “self-sacrificing” Defenders. The way it is written makes it sound like the Defenders is going to be this team of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. If it was called Heroes of Hire that would make total sense. The Defenders originally were Doctor Strange, Hulk, Namor, and the Silver Surfer. There have been a few different versions of the Defenders team and Iron Fist was on one of them. Doctor Strange has been in most of the Defenders’ lineups, so it is very possible he could be introduced in all of this.
I really like Marvel’s street level characters, so to me this is probably the most exciting thing that has been announced in a while. What do you think?
