So what else does Bleeding Cool know? Well… we have a bit more of a synopsis for the plot.
An unsolveable murder. An aquatic doorway to nothingness. A wanderer at the end of time. And a cosmic train of planetary proportions.
Four seemingly-unrelated events that will require the powers and insight of the members of the greatest Non-Team of them all. the original DEFENDERS. to connect the dots and challenge the strange power behind these disconnected happenings—before all of reality pays the price! Doctor Strange! The Immortal Hulk. Namor the Sub-Mariner! The Silver Steer! Don’t call them a team—call them the DEFENDERS!
And the books themselves? Defenders #1. Doctor Strange: Defenders #1. Hulk: Defenders #1. Namor: Defenders #1. Silver Surfer: Defenders #1. Oh, and we have this visual…
And for some reason, in the version we’ve been told, Mark Waid is also involved… let’s find out in December solicitations.
