[personal profile] mistaeff requested scans of '70s Defenders, especially Hellcat, Nighthawk and Valkyrie, as he suspected there might be some bow-chicka-wow-wow vibes going on there. Digging through my collection, I found a few issues from around the time Hellcat first joined, and, guys be the judge?

So, Valkyrie's just gone yet another round with secret agenty type Jack Norriss, the brawny, chauvinistic yet strangely attractive husband of Val's human host Barbara Norriss, and he's gone off with Nick Fury and Moon Knight.

Nighthawk, meanwhile, has been dealing with his tensions by taking a soak in the hot tub and paging through alter ego Kyle Richmond's little black book for a date with "someone who will wear elegantly little - and smile suggestively over her Chivas Regal!" (as per #47).

There's some stuff with Scorpio and Nick Fury being brothers and Moon Knight trapped in a big vat of water and cloning a new Zodiac team yada yada yada makes not a lick of sense... Meanwhile, well, it's hard out there for a pimp millionaire playboy superhero.

And on to the big showdown, which spills over into the next two issues. A little less than 3 pages of a 17-page story here, for them that keep track of such stuff.

Tags ahoy! char: hellcat/patsy walker, char: nick fury, char: nighthawk/kyle richmond, char: scorpio/jacob fury (new tag), char: valkyrie/brunnhilde, creator: dan green (new tag), creator: david kraft (new tag), creator: keith giffen, group: defenders, publisher: marvel comics, title: defenders

So, this is Keith Giffen doing Kirby, basically? He had a good way with it(wasn't he a Kirby assistant once?) though at first I thought it was Trimpe doing the same.

I always liked the idea of the Defenders, a group(non) of characters who would have been impossible to put together otherwise. The seventies had a lot of interesting things Marvel and DC did off to the side, like having books based around villains or secondary characters like these.

You know. I always liked that look for Valkyrie.

Ahh, can't believe I missed this! Thanks so much. This is exactly what I had in mind. I love that even back then Hellcat was a bit of an annoying chatterer, but still adorable. I had no idea Kyle was so angsty. And LONELY! Watching the girls as they sleep (at his place, presumably)? Priceless. Sure doesn't discourage the OT3 inklings, that's for damn sure.

Fury pulling a cigar version of the spit-take needs to show up in Marvel Adventures. Too bad they probably can't include smoking paraphernalia since it's a kid's title...
