This is me right now:
And this is why.
Do I really need to say anything more? 😉
Of course I will anyway. 🙂
I noticed something awhile ago, never thought it was the right time to mention it. Now it is. Not only does it pertain, but it’ll give me a moment to get out of squealing geek-out mode. 🙂
In the usual five-man team makeup that is most used for epic adventure stories, we have five roles: Leader, Tank, Rogue, Wizard, and Blaster.
Luke Cage is most definitely the Tank, good for taking and dealing large amounts of damage.
Daredevil is the Rogue, wily and fighting in the shadows.
Jessica Jones is the Wizard, the smart one that has the tools to adapt to a multitude of situations.
And Iron Fist is the Blaster, quick and with one heck of a punch.
…so who’s the Leader? 😉
These are all alpha-type characters, not built for taking orders or really playing well with others. Needless to say, there will be friction, but they will also be quite potent when they figure out how to work together.
So! To start off with…
Jessica Jones is being interrogated by Misty Knight in Harlem. The entire city is investigating something, which Jessica is connected to because someone who knew or did something came to her for help, most likely. But things went wrong, they lost their lead, and Jessica’s on the hook for it. Until Matt Murdock walks in. And tries to take charge. This is their first meeting, it seems.
How much you wanna bet that’s courtesy of Claire? 🙂
Luke gets out of jail, because justice at last, and comes home to Harlem. Where he is a local hero and is coupling with Claire. (I have mentioned a number of times how much I hate that coupling) Colleen and Danny return as well, quietly in the middle of night, and Claire wants them all to meet. She gets her wish, though not in the polite way she imagined, I imagine! LOL! Oh, you know they’ve gotta have mix-ups and misunderstandings! That’s classic Hero Meets Hero 101!
Hmmm, interesting detail. In a fight, Luke has an advantage, and Danny’s not accustomed to a world with people with superpowers, but his Iron Fist can actually hurt Luke.
And here comes Stick. Looks like everyone’s not doing so well, but crap is hitting the fan, and it apparently includes a “war for New York,” Elektra coming back from the dead, some invisible thing that can throw the lot of them to the ground, and something that makes the ground shake, so it’s time for them all to get their crap together. Oh, and it has Sigourney Weaver leading an army against them. Important detail that.
I’ve probably never heard of Weaver’s character, but dang if she can’t pull off a quietly menacing aura!
Clearly, there’s going to be plenty of action! 🙂 And well-done action too! 😀
The Defenders are not the only ones in this fight, as Colleen and Claire are mixed up in things too, and no way Stick’s missing this fight. And Weaver’s character says, explicitly, that “the more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you.” That tells me she intends to target those connections, the people the Defenders care about.
Now, is the one with the sword Elektra or someone else?
Hmm, never mind, they fight Elektra too, and she doesn’t use the sword, so it’s someone else.
The Defenders work together, they infiltrate together, they fight together, but they are up against enemies numerous, powerful, and cunning. So, it’s going to be a really good, entertaining fight! 😀
