DEFENDERS #2 (1972)

This is a perfect 1970s comic.  It starts with heroes being assembled, and has a situation comedy style opening-where’s Silver Surfer?  Here he is!

Fantastic.  Then the two of them go and get Hulk, have a big fight with an inconsequential mystical threat, and work out their shared misunderstandings.  And of course we get the great “assemble” panel…

And now that that’s over, we have a team.  So we can set up the next storyline: Now that they’ve found Silver Surfer, they’re going to help him leave Earth.

Creators: Steve Englehart and Sal Buscema

Grade: A
