Characters Appearing: Elf with a Gun, Luann Bloom
Issue(s): Defenders #119
The current time framing sequence features a mysterious panel receiving information from Nighthawk's nurse Luann Bloom, who it turns out is actually a robot that's been recording the Defenders' actions.
The flashback story shows the Defenders fighting a woman possessed by the spirit of Yandroth. Pretty irrelevant stuff.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Most of this issue is flashback taking place between Defenders #68 and #69. The framing sequence doesn't involve any characters that require chronological consideration. All Defenders issues from here through issue #125 have been pushed back in publication time due to the appearance of the Vision in issues #123-124, which must take place before the Vision is disabled in Avengers #233.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Steven Grant said in an interview with CBR "I’d written a fill-in [issue of ‘The Defenders’], featuring a female Yandroth (which ended up being published many years later) and Al asked if I’d finish off the Omega storyline so they could get on with their lives". So the flashback was that story and Grant was presumably the full writer.

Yeah, the lead-in to the "flashback" fnord shows, with the robot being squeezed in the top above the splash page with the title, screams "fill-in that's finally getting used".
