Issue(s): Defenders #69
Of course it doesn't, and Strange has to intervene directly. But the crisis is averted.
Look at poor Bruce Banner. How often does he wind up having to ask stuff like that?
As the first plot Jim Shooter is involved in since the Korvac saga, it seems a bit soon to have a super-team fighting another super-powerful guy wearing gym clothes.
Still, this fill-in is much better than the surrounding issues.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: We know from Hulk #243 that the Hulk appearance here occurs after that issue and before Daredevil #163. Dr. Strange appears here after declining to help the Avengers in Avengers annual #8.
Omegatron never fully appears, but we see its power meter increasing as the guy keeps using his powers, so i've listed it as a "character" appearing.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Wow. My first issue of Defenders, a team and comic I had never heard of, when I bought it in a 25 cent box in 1986-1987 at a great comic shop called 'Comics & Robots' in Wilmington, DE. My Grandfather took me there after school and this cover really intrigued me. Who were these people, the Hulk was a member? It's only now, at nearly 4am, that I rediscover this exact issue- which, incidentally, came out in March 1979- the month and year I was born- which I *also* just discovered. Good stuff.
