Marvel Comics Universe & December 2018 Solicitations Spoilers: Defenders Gets A Fresh Start?

Marvel Comics Universe and December 2018 Solicitations Spoilers follows.

Defenders Gets A Fresh Start via Teases? We have the Immortal Hulk…

…Namor the Submariner and…

…the Silver Surfer…

…the Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange.

Then all four together.

Looks like these will be a series of one-shots in December 2018:

      IMMORTAL HULK: THE BEST DEFENSE

      NAMOR: THE BEST DEFENSE

      DOCTOR STRANGE: THE BEST DEFENSE

      SILVER SURFER: THE BEST DEFENSE

      THE DEFENDERS: THE BEST DEFENSE

Marvel teases them like so:

      Doctor Strange. The Immortal Hulk. Namor the Sub-Mariner. The Silver Surfer. You know their names and you know their powers…and you know them as the DEFENDERS! This December, Marvel’s favorite non-team – the original Defenders – return in all-new stories!

      With an assembly of stellar creative teams, writers and artists such as Chip Zdarsky (Marvel 2-In-One), Gerry Duggan (Deadpool), Jason Latour (Spider-Gwen), Simone Di Meo (Old Man Logan Annual), Carlos Magno (Thunderbolts), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), Al Ewing (The Immortal Hulk) and Joe Bennett (The Immortal Hulk) will spin five interconnected specials that tell a unique and captivating story for each original Defender.

I had hoped more classic Defenders would be teased too.

Who is missing in the teases:

    • Doctor Strange
    • Valkyrie
    • Nighthawk
    • Hellcat

Not sure how these books will do when most modern readers associate the name Defenders with the live-action TV Defenders from Netflix.

That team includes:

    • Daredevil
    • Luke Cage
    • Iron Fist
    • Alias

I wonder if Marvel will have Defenders vs. Defenders in January 2019? The classic line-up against the newer TV inspired line-up?
