Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   December 3, 2016
Two storylines here and both are good. First, we see Doctor Strange putting the original Defenders back together. Nice sense of mystery here, regarding the Hulk's behaviour. The other thread follows the all-female version of the Defenders, picking up their story directly after the battle from the previous issue. They are drawn - by a distress call - into a new adventure with new villains. 9/10

  No one seems to run into as many female supervillains as Valk.

  Surprise villain of the year? Unmm, sounds like Magneto.
