Issue(s): Defenders #84, Defenders #85
Meanwhile, there's a weapon sale going on between some rogue Wakandan elements and some ambitious Atlanteans. The Black Panther, who apparently has to handle every aspect of governing his country personally, shows up to put a stop to things.
Misunderstandings and a phony sense of honor eventually escalates this into war between the two countries.
After an uneasy ceasefire, the Defenders let Black Panther know that the Mandrill is plotting against Wakanda. The Defenders' association with the Panther drives Namor away.
The Defenders go after the Mandrill but fail to capture him.
This is better than the Unnameable One storyline, but still not very good. The political conflict between the two fictional nations should have been soooo much better.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: This takes place soon after Defenders #83, before the Hulk or Doctor Strange appear elsewhere. Therefore it's been pushed back a bit from its publication date.
Continuity Implant? N
