Marvel teases “The Best Defense” with character splash pages of Silver Surfer, Hulk, Namor, and Doctor Strange

Marvel teases new series which may be a Defenders reboot.

It is beginning to look a lot like Marvel Comics is rebooting the Defenders as they’ve revealed throughout the day teasers for a variety of heroes. The only text to go with the teasers says, “The Best Defense” and the team is composed of classic Defenders heroes.

In the latest tease Marvel revealed Doctor Strange who followed Namor, Silver Surfer, and Hulk (who looks very much like the newer Immortal Hulk version from Al Ewing’s series).

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Take a peek at all of the teasers below:

We also know Ron Garney and Richard Isanove will be working on the title which is out this December.

Marvel released full details late Friday along with a new cover image and details on the full creative teams involved.
