The The Defenders wiki last edited by X35 on 05/24/13 01:49PM View full history

Hank Pym has left the Ultimates and is working with a new super hero group known as The Defenders while taking on the identity of Ant-Man. The Defenders, made up of Powerman, Valkyrie, Son Of Satan, Hellcat, Nighthawk, and The Black Knight, hope to be the world's new favorite Superhero team. On top of that, Hank strikes up a relationship with the 19 year old Valkyrie, and attempts to give new technology to Nick Fury, who declines. Later, The Defenders learn about a group of teenagers who are planning on stealing from a warehouse late at night. After setting up the proper media connections, The Defenders split up and patrol the district around the warehouses. Nighthawk is injured by the teenagers in a botched ambush, with Giant Man narrowly saving him. Unfortunately, Hank is photographed as a 60-foot nude man, which further damages his credibility and puts him on thinner ice with S.H.I.E.L.D. due to them owning the rights to the growth formula. Finally, after learning that The Defenders are not who they said they were, Hank is visited by the S.H.I.E.L.D. operative that has been leaking high security files to the media.

Since the Ultimates have been known as the world's premerie superhero team, many lives have been saved in the past few months and years. Still, what about the less fortunate heroes that don't have the equipment or money like Tony Stark or Spider-man, this issue of the Ultimates tells that tale. The Defenders are a group of costumed heroes without any cool headquarters or powers for that matter, but when Hank Pym(Ant-Man) steps forward into the group, things don't actualy change that much.  I enj...
