""The Defenders are back and facing threats Satanic, Seussian and everything in between! Marvel's greatest non-team will take you on adventures topped with heaping helping of the absurd and always underpinned by compelling interpersonal drama. In this Epic Collection, they battle the Avengers, the cosmic Over-Mind, the alternate-Earth Squadron Supreme, the fan-favorite Elf with a gun, and even themselves. Patsy Walker's relationship with Daimon Hellstrom--the son of Satan--will flower, while classic Defenders--Hulk, Namor, and the Silver Surfer--will return. Out of it all, a New Defenders--featuring Iceman, Angel, Beast, Moondragon and the Gargoyle--will rise, and, same as it ever was, nothing will be same!"--Page  of cover.
