Although little is known right now about the upcoming return of Marvel’s “non-team” The Defenders this summer, Marvel has released a mysterious teaser artwork for the upcoming series.
The image below features Stephen Strange, a number of floating tarot cards featuring original members The Hulk, Namor, Silver Surfer, as well as long-time members of the team such as the original Valkyrie, Nighthawk, The Beast, Moon Dragon, Daimon Hellstrom, and the current version of Harpy/Betty Ross (along with some strange twins…)
The Masked Raider (a Western hero who made his first appearance in Marvel Comics #1 in 1939) also appears in the piece, imploring Strange to “Call on the New Defenders-Or time itself is doomed!”
What does this mean? Who will be on the team? Time will tell, but Defenders fans should be pleases with the announcement of a new series.
Puzzle over the art below and come back to Conskipper for more news on the upcoming Defenders series as it breaks.
