Characters Appearing: Clea, Dr. Strange, Hulk, Sub-Mariner, Valkyrie
Giant-Size Defenders #1
Issue(s): Giant-Size Defenders #1
The idea is that Valkyrie, being new to the team, wants to know more about the other Defenders. So Clea casts spells to show Val some of their past adventures.
While that is happening, something mystical begins to occur.
It turns out that Clea's spell isn't just replaying the past; it's making it come alive again.
This allows for some nice trippy art from Jim Starlin.
The Defenders manage to stop Clea's spell. Clea is ashamed at her mistake, but Val does appreciate her effort.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: This begins with the Defenders returning from their fight with Xemnu the Titan in Defenders #12. A footnote confirms that it takes place before Defenders #13.
Continuity Insert? N

Yes, Stephen, one should never attempt a spell if one doesn't know its effects. Now are you going to check on your brother to see if you turned him into a vampire?

That's too much like work. You'll have to pay him. Talk to his secretary for further consultation. Moving on.

Clea's nipples seem unable to stop popping out.

Wow, the trippy Starlin dimension the Hulk goes to actually looks a lot like the Crossroads that he is banished to almost a decade later. Fnord, maybe you should consider this a Crossroads appearance?
