Issue(s): Defenders #47
Noriss doesn't know that the Defenders have moved out of Strange's house, but luckily the Valkyrie has returned there to get yet another crappy new costume from Clea.
Meanwhile, Hellcat returns to the Avengers to take them off alert from the Nebulon threat, but she encounters Wonder Man. Since neither has met, and neither are yet official Avengers, they distrust each other and fight.
When Val and Moon Knight arrive, they join in as well.
Once all that is settled, Nick Fury sends a message to the Avengers saying that's he's putting out a priority alert on Jack. Luckily the Defenders are there to hear it.
The Nick Fury appearing in this issue is an LMD.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This issue begins with Valkyrie and Hellcat leaving Nighthawk and Hulk at Kyle's ranch to go to Avengers mansion to call off the Red Rajah threat, so it probably shouldn't take place too long after #46 and no other appearances should take place in between. Wonder Man's appearance here can occur during any break in his Avengers appearances. The Hulk gets angry and leaves during this story, and i have him in Hulk #209-211 before his return next issue.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A

This was the first time Moon Knight appeared outside of a Doug Moench-written comic, and he reportedly wasn't pleased about it(or subsequent appearances with the Thing and Spider-Man).

The title is from the Bob Seger song.

According to FOOM#19, it was Roger Slifer's idea to use Moon Knight here and to later put Valkyrie in college.

Is MOON KNIGHT due to cross-over in Netflix Defenders offering?

Clea's all-gold Valkyrie costume was a disaster, I'll agree, but the white/gold one here will do for a pinch. I, like Marvel eventually, preferred the classic black, but I understand that there was a segment of the readership that found the "steel tit-cups" look a bit too much, so I'm willing to compromise.
