THE DEFENDERS #51 (1977)

This two page spread summarizes pretty much every thing I love about The Defenders.

The team, along with Nick Fury and Moon Knight, begin this story amid the wreckage of the last arc.  Then it’s on to a solo mission: Nighthawk versus my favorite dumb villain: The Ringer!

This was Ringer’s first appearance.

And finally, dolla dolla bill y’all!

This is the first appearance of future Defenders official photographer and hanger-on, Dollar Bill, who Valkyrie meets while signing up for classes in college.

Creators: David Kraft and Keith Giffen
Grade: B
