THE DEFENDERS #31-33 (1976)

IMG_5718Lots and lots of character moments in this issue.  It starts with Valkyrie doing her best to get to know her husband.  Or, at least, the man who married the woman who used to occupy her body.

Then Hulk happens upon some hunters in the forest and kicks the shit out of them for killing a deer.

Good stuff.

The rest of the story involves The Headmen getting literally into Nighthawk’s head.


The Defenders have to fight through his psyche to save him, and they bring in Son of Satan to help.  The Headmen also get a girl to help them.

She gets to be in the group because she has the weirdest head of them all…

But the most important thing about this is another appearance by the random assassin who keeps killing innocent people…
