With Fear Itself coming to the end of it’s run, we will see a lot of changes in the Marvel Universe. One of those changes that I’m most thankful for is a brand spankin’ new Defenders team and series.
Marvel has been teasing the new defenders for a few months now, and as of SDCC 2011, the teasing and mystery is done. Matt Fraction will be helming the new Defenders series. No news on the premise as of yet.
The original Defenders members were the Hulk, Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer, and Namor. The team expanded from there. The new lineup includes Doctor Strange, Namor, Red She-Hulk, Iron Fist, and Silver Surfer. Marvel will be delivering other Defenders as well. Issue number one is slated for September!
