THE DEFENDERS #116 (1983)


This issue is a rest break.  It’s all character–Overmind, who is still living at Dr. Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, takes Strange on an astral journey to visit with his teammates to convince him that there is still love in the world.  Strange is lamenting the loss of his girlfriend, Clea, which happened in his own solo book.  It’s interesting to see a team book spend a full story exploring events from a solo book.  Usually, that’s the other way around (if it’s done at all).

The result is a series of vignettes about the characters who are associated with The Defenders.

I like quiet stories like this.

Most of the team have good relationships going on, but it’s worth noting that Daimon is all into Hellcat, but Patsy ain’t having any of it.
