  Only about one-third of what is happening here makes sense to me... :D

  Blameing the defenders for the destruction of earth, is like blameing a shopowner for his shop being robbed, because it's his shop

  New Defenders, same old JM DeMatteis. This title needs a writer change far more than it needed a roster change.

  Again an outstanding cover. Perlin keeps on not delivering, however.

  This is a horrible trainwreck, from the roping-in of the Mutant Force to do a typical wedding disruption to the endless exposition of a future that wlil never, ever happen. I'm not sure why DeMatteis felt he had to justify this new lineup SO strenuously -- to the point where he constructed a long explanation about how an alien race's ultra-destructive funerary ritual for outcast heirs means the Earth will be destroyed, therefore the original Defenders can NEVER be together again or the bad things will happen -- even though they know about it now -- and by the way, Dr. Strange checked it out with the Eye of Agamotto so it's COMPLETELY REAL, ok? It's like he's scrawling "DO NOT ERASE, IMPORTANT STUFF" on a whiteboard.

Sorry, DeMatteis. You can't do "no backsies" in comic continuity. Some other author can just come along and decide this story is ridiculous and undo your decisions, and the whole mess will just annoy everyone! You know how you get your plot decisions to stick? Make them really, really compelling and memorable.

  So we have the Hulk, Silver Surfer and Namur who have all expressed a desire not to be a part of the Defenders.. but they were the cause for the destruction of the Earth as Defenders..sure, this isn't contrived in the least.

  Reflecting on this run of Defenders, I am left with the impression that DeMatteis is trying a little too hard to build the family dynamic that Byrne and Claremont are contemporaneously building in their respective books. And while the relationships DeMatteis showcases do have their charming moments, it all feels a little bit off. Whether it's the balance between drama and action, or the slightly unbelievable interactions, The Defenders (while a solid comic in its own right) just reminds me of how far ahead of their time Byrne and Claremont were and how much they influenced the team books that we see in 2017.
