  Well, I was going to say just give the man a shield and it might as well be a Captain America story. And then he grabbed that barrel lid and the illusion was complete.

Cackle cackle.

  Cap and Bucky, same dynamic in different costumes! Why bother creating second grade characters when can give the same story to heroes with a solid background?

  First impression, Defender looks like kind of a boring Captain America clone. Which is...not necessarily a bad thing. Plenty of good stories come from characters that are lazy ripoffs (see Avengers, Superman, Captain Marvel, Miracleman, etc.)

I see Defender shows up in a handful of modern age comics. I'm pretty sure I'll have forgotten every detail of this debut story if I ever get there, though!
