Perhaps the Defenders are a group or concept whose time has come and gone. No revival of the Defenders has lasted even 2 years in the last ten to 15 years. Even if the Fearless Defenders is not really connected to the classic Defenders, Fearless Defenders is getting canceled with issue #12. Maybe for some reason, people just don’t connect with the team or non-team anymore.
Infinity cross over is ending soon. I still haven’t sampled it. However Sam (Cannonball) and Roberto (Sunspot) actually got some page time in an Infinity tie-in issue of Avengers. It is good to see. At one point, I was excited about Jonathan Hickman taking over Avengers.
Spider-man 2099 is stuck in the past. Maybe he’ll get a mini-series. Or maybe he will make some more appearances in Superior Spider-man.
So, far no Ted Kord appearance has happened.
Black Adam and Ultraman’s fight from Justice League #24 will continue in Forever Evil #3. It is a bit of a shame because Ivan Reis is a better action artist than David Finch. I am not saying David Finch is a bad artist, he isn’t. The origin of Ultraman was interesting.
