Defenders #128-130 (1984)

More of the “Secret Empire” epic.  I’m not really feeling this ongoing tale.  Even the name “Secret Empire” is pretty generic.  And their leader Professor Power—that’s a pretty generic name for a  super-villain with a generic aim: Blow-up-slash-take-over the world.

Thankfully, this appears to be the end of the story: The Defenders win in the end and get recognized by the U.S. Government as a super-team, in the same way that The Avengers have recognition and clearance.

With this arc, DeMatteis leaves the series.

Creators: J.M. DeMatteis and Alan Kupperberg, Don Perlin, and Mike Zeck
