KC Remembers Defenders for a Day

Defenders: Tournament of Heroes

In his latest Westfield column, KC looks back at a classic Defenders storyline, “Defenders for a Day”, which appeared in 1978 in issues #62-64. A whole bunch of characters guest-star, including (my new favorite shorthand description) “pre-cancer Captain Marvel”.

If you aren’t familiar with the Defenders misfit superteam, KC provides a short history as well. This, in case you’re ever asked for meaningless trivia, is the only Marvel series I have read all the way through (although I don’t remember all of it at this point). Like KC, I really miss the bean-eating Hulk and his crazy-named friends Fish-Man and Bird-Nose.

    The Defenders is one of the few long running comic series I’ve never read an issue of. I just got a huge lot of the series, most of Vol. 1, and look forward to diving in.

    Only long running series that come close to me not being exposed to them are, Avengers which I’e never read more than 6 issues(occasional TPBs) of. Or Fantastic Four which I have only read maybe 3 to 4 consecutive issues of at most.
