Issue(s): Defenders #93
She convinces Namor to launch a war on the surface people.
The Defenders get involved and it turns out that Dorma is really Nebulon.
He'd been imprisoned by his people but he escaped looking for vengeance on the Defenders. Once exposed, he's relatively easily to defeat, and his people show up looking for him to imprison him again.
Competently told but ultimately forgettable.
Nighthawk is attacked off panel in this issue, leaving him paralyzed.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Hulk is still with the team at the end of this issue, but he won't be seen again in the Defenders until issue #98. There's no explanation of why he's left. But I have the Hulk appearing in England in Captain America #257 next (Banner was kidnapped by Matrix Eight), and then he appears in Hulk #255, possibly back in New York after taking a plane home from England (with Captain America?). At the end of Hulk #255 the Hulk gets on a boat, starting off his "world tour". This also takes place before Llyra's re-appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #213-215, because Namor still thinks Llyra is dead.
Continuity Insert? N

Around this time a Sub-Mariner mini-series by Stern/Byrne was announced. Jim Shooter claimed to have had the mini-series concept before DC did "World of Krypton" in 1979, but he stated any such things would have wound up in Marvel Premiere/Spotlight anyway so Marvel didn't do them. He didn't offer any evidence, though...
