This is the series that Riri's "Ironheart" IM series never managed to be. All 10 issues were enjoyable and now it's over with this ish...
The Defenders 010
Overlooking some serious sighting/chronology nitpicking, it was such a great read.
YUP: good, beautiful and interesting stuff.
It's possible. Although, DD599 didn't really give off that vibe at all - it was all Muse and Fisk to deal with in DD600 (unless someone has read solicits saying otherwise?). It is a interesting scenario suggestion though and intriguing setup potential. On the other hand, a majority of readers probably would vote for mass arrests and Robbins is such a recurring putz. It is important that some book state the outcome ASAP, imo though.
What was that?
Elektra had a good appearance/fight in this book a few issues back. DD had some decent moments all along worthy of 25% of the spotlight.
EVERYONE is drawn beautiful! That final double splash with wallpaper-worthy! As for Felicia going straight, her fall from grace relapse to Queenpin of Crime felt like forced and unbelievable crap from Day 1. And renewed bid to return to the good guy side read inorganic and unlikely (partially because it happened differently in Spider-miles and Venom books). Let's see how The Bullpen will handle her now. Hopefully not Miss Goody Twoshoes but also not Nasty Murderous B*tch.
Lots of GOOD stuff...
=Cover & Recap: Good.
=Hood/Fisk meeting: Good.
=Themed interview panels sequence (and Easter Egg cameos): Good. However, HOW DID YOU take it? Who were they talking to? It can't have been a reporter as their structured comments implied 'cuz there' no way some one scored that Matt interview or caught Spidey mid swing. THose last 2 kind of wrecked it a bit.
=Daily Bugle page: Good. Neat incorporation of the Riri status in Bendis' concurrent book. Hammerhead alive and well is nod to his Spider-Miles wrap up.
=Re-re-re-return of H4H: Good. Ifff it sticks. Throwing any of 'em back on the Avengers post-Infinity would make this oft-repeated gesture feel defeatist.
=Plea bargaining with Cat: Good. It's a baby step in direction to do right by the character. Plus, she gives a very convincing argument/deal to 'escape' police custody.
=Danny loving Misty:
=Hood beating the Defenders: Explosively good.
=Masters of Evil reunite: Good. (Well, expect for obvious serious chronology concerns.) "Kingpins of Evil" is a scary thought. The Maggia comment is a neat observation. Someone care to LIST THEM?
=Last page face-off: SO Good. Huh, Valkyrie's back? HUH, Gargoyle too?! Night Nurse gets props. Miles but no Riri. WHO THE HECK is Ronin?
