THE DEFENDERS #94

IMG_6071
First appearance of Isaac Christen–the Gargoyle. DeMatteis revived the Lee/Kirby creation as a natural fit to a team with the Son of Satan, Master of Mystic Arts (and his boo, Clea), a fashion model linked to a demonic cult (Hellcat), and a guy who can only walk because of magic.

I hadn’t thought of this before, but wasn’t this really the first Justice League Dark? I know The Avengers was a response to the Justice League, and Nighthawk was intended as a direct analog of Batman, but hey, Marvel gets the credit for the first weirdo mystic team.
