The world's greatest mystics have gathered to partake in a contest to finally decide once and for all who is the true Sorcerer Supreme. Victor Von Doom barely qualifies to enter, but manages to be the only one other than the victor, Strange naturally, who does not succumb to the challenge. Doom didn't use his offensive or defensive sciences during the contest but did use computer scanning to learn much about magic that he did not know before.

After Strange is declared Sorcerer Supreme there is one other consequence of the tournament to attend to.

So Dr. Strange has been in mini-series, team books, a Season One novel, etc. over the last few years. But he hasn't headlined an ongoing solo book since the 90's. And given that he's my favorite Marvel character period I've been a bit frustrated given how the only place I could read about him was in New Avengers (the less said about his role there the better). Then today happened......

'Golden Age' is one of my favorite arcs from Bendis' and Maleev's run on Daredevil. It's just a great combination of writing from Bendis and art from Maleev. It's also largely a stand-alone story so you just need to be familiar with the basic concept of Daredevil being outed as Matt Murdock and later declaring himself the 'Kingpin' of Hell's Kitchen.

In the previous issue, we were introduced to the new Red Guardian, Arthur Nagan was an asshole, Chondu got a makeover, and Valkyrie got arrested.

So now it's time for the final chapter of the Nighthawk's Brain saga, The Defenders #36.

Five pages of seventeen, and an ad.

A Garden of Earthly Demise )

Your thoughts and comments, especially as this is the end of the post series?

Next time--something that isn't Seventies Marvel.

In the previous issue, Nebulon unveiled his plan to help humanity through Celestial Mind Control, which manages to be even skeevier than it sounds. Valkyrie voiced her objections to strip-searching, and Chondu demonstrated that being in the body of a fawn doesn;t make him harmless.

So, five pages from seventeen of "The Defenders" #35, plus a Hostess ad.

Arthur Nagan is an asshole. )

Next time: The conclusion of the Nighthawk's Brain plotline.

Last issue, we learned that Jack Norriss' mind is in Chondu's brain, which is in Kyle Richmond's body. Chondu's mind is in Bambi's brain and body. Kyle Richmond's mind is in his own brain, which is in a shallow dish. The other Defender's minds are in their own brains and bodies, but may not be right any more. The Headmen's HQ is in ruins, and Nebulon is back in town.

Which brings us up to The Defenders #34, five pages of seventeen (nrrgh) and dessert.

I Think We're All Bozos In This Book! )

Next time:. Chondu gets a makeover!

Hi again!

Last issue, the Defenders learned whose brain was residing in Nighthawk's skull. Nighthawk recapped his origin, and the Defenders were knocked out by Ruby Tuesday.

Now, let's look at six pages of eighteen (and dessert) from "The Defenders" #33.

Bambi returns! )

Next time: Nebulon's plan to save the world!

Hello again!

In the previous issue of The Defenders, we saw Kyle (Nighthawk) Richmond be captured by the Headmen, who transplanted the brain of Chondu the Mystic into his skull. Chondu infiltrated the Defenders, but tipped his hand too early, allowing him to be captured by our heroes.

Now, issue #32. Six pages of eighteen, plus dessert (and I mean that a bit more literally this time.)

So if your friend is acting out of character, who do you call? )

Next time--The return of Bambi!

Hi, folks!

Given recent Spider-Man events (if you haven't already heard, you may want to come back later) I decided you folks might like to see how this sort of plotline has been handled by Marvel in the past.

In specific, the "Nighthawk's Brain" arc in "The Defenders" starting in #67.

Six pages of eighteen, plus a dessert.

Subplots! Lots of subplots! )

Next time, more mind boggling madness!

Until then, Happy Thanksgiving!
