When Doctor Strange faces a threat to Earth so big the Sorcerer Supreme can't handle it alone, he calls on two allies from his past: Namor, the Sub-Mariner, and the Incredible Hulk! Can these three powerful individuals find a way to work together to thwart…the Omegatron?! Or will their forceful personalities get in the way of victory? And assuming they survive, is there any chance they'd be willing to make a habit of this?

It's one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting MARVEL FEATURE (1971) #1. Rated T

BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


In what has to be one of the coolest and most innovative creation stories in the real world of comics, with vunderkinden Roy Thomas and God rest his soul, Stan Lee at the center of it, the Defenders were created. Bouncing between issues of Doctor Strange, Sub-Mariner, Incredible Hulk, and Silver Surfer, the group finally gathered in the newly created title Marvel Feature! The original title would last 12 issues with the first 3 issues featuring the new group. Ironicly, after a few issues with Ant-Man, the title acted as the tryout for another incredible successful Marvel book, Marvel Two-In-One featuring team-ups with the Thing! But nevertheless, the origin of the Defenders is incredible enjoyable and rare as the three main characters didn't want to be there. One of the most charming parts of the original Defenders was that the group was forced to work together rather than come together like the Avengers. Not only do you get to see the beginnings of the group but we get a look at the Sub-Mariner's and Doctor Strange's pasts in added bonus stories. This one brought back a lot of good memories as I was honored to have been alive and reading these comics as a kid.

I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
