Defenders – Kingpins of New York | Comics

The Defenders have gathered to fight for the people of New York! However, bad press follows them and Diamondback wants to be the next lord of crime!

When Diamondback came back from being dead after a long time, he faced the Defenders of New York. He was taking a drug to enhance his strength but got his butt kicked anyway. He was arrested and readied for transport, where he met the fierce vigilante Punisher.

Stryker was able to invoke Frank Castle into attacking him and he escaped. While on the run, he showed up at the penthouse of Black Cat and she calls off their alliance considering him being a fugitive only to get repeatedly shot at by him.

In desperation, he decides to take all of the remaining at once to get home and got extremely jacked up. Completely unknown about what he has been up to, a badly wounded Black Cat came back to take a dig at him but she barely made a scratch on him.

Stryker was about to deliver a finishing blow on her when Daredevil and Iron Fist intervened at the nick of time. Jessica Jones came charging at him with a car and Luke Cage followed up by landing a barrage of punches until he is finally taken down for good.

Willis Stryker was eventually bailed out in court when his lawyer was able to make it look like Stryker is a victim of vigilantism. Reporter Ben Urich from Daily Bugle came to the hospital where Black Cat is admitted and Hammerhead showed up too announcing an upcoming gang-war. Since things are going crazy-pants, Jessica called in an old favor and recruited Deadpool for help.

Elsewhere, Diamondback meets his secret benefactor, who turns out to be former Kingpin, Wilson Fisk. Stryker is advised to tighten loose ends of their plan and is warned about new players like master assassin Elektra being in town.

Elektra Natchios came across Danny Rand on a rooftop as the latter asks why she previously broke into their office. Instead of answering, she responds by starting a fight with him, which is officially their first ever. She bested him for a while and had Danny on ropes but he only knocks her out by using his chi energy.

Meanwhile, Diamondback walks into Hammerhead's pub with intent to take it for himself and he does so when one of his own men tipped off by the former shot the latter in head with a high-caliber gun, killing him.

Daredevil asks Elektra about why she broke into their office and what she knows about Willis. When he let her go afterwards, a friction among his peers create regarding trust issues among them. The Punisher was trying to snipe on him from afar but Deadpool decided to butt in, literally. Their fight alerted the Defenders and they came after Castle.

However, adding Wade Wilson has only caused them trouble and the Merc with a Mouth soon took an exit. As Willis Stryker assembles Fixer, Moonstone and Titania to be part of his new crew, The Hood returns to bring on more chaos.

Defenders – Kingpins of New York

"Kingpins of New York" steps into the second phase of a bigger plan that started following the events of "Diamonds Are Forever" storyline. Collecting issues #06-10 of the fifth ongoing volume of Defenders monthly series from Marvel Comics, the arc was plotted by writer Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers Disassembled, House of M) and artist David Marquez (Civil War II, Invincible Iron Man – Reboot) helped him portraying his layout.

The current series bears heavy influence from Marvel's The Defenders TV show from online streaming-service Netflix and even the roster is following TV line-up of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.

All-out Street War

As former Kingpin of crime in is out from his regular business, there is a power vacuum created in his absence and every other bad-guy of New York is seemingly trying to earn that title. Many characters have gone through shocking experience while many showed up as a guest; most notably Elektra Natchios.

During the Elektra/Iron Fist confrontation, she fairly made a point fighting the Immortal Iron Fist that why even a guy like Wolverine seeks to train with her when is in trouble. Also, special appearance by Colleen Wing, Echo, Misty Knight, Spider-Woman and White Tiger was quite a fresh breeze.

Defenders – Diamonds Are Forever | Comics

Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage must form The Defenders to keep the streets safe from a deadly enemy of past.

Harlem's very own bulletproof man Luke Cage was coming back home from the market and talking to some schoolgirls of the neighborhood when he is suddenly ambushed with a rocket launcher. Cage quickly jumped off to save the bystanders.

He then rushed to a nearby building rooftop to chase the assailant but found a few diamond on the ground. He then receives a call and went to hospital to see his wife Jessica Jones, who was also attacked in her Alias Investigations Office and left heavily injured.

Daredevil came following them as someone attacked his alter ego Matt Murdock too in broad daylight and points out that someone has targeted four of them. Before Luke could ask about the fourth victim, Danny Rand, the Iron Fist was also marked.

As they were discussing who it could be, Jessica regains consciousness only to reveals it was Diamondback who came at her office to talk to her about a recent raid by vigilante hero Daredevil, Iron Fist and her husband Luke Cage at Club Ultimate. When she asks him to leave, he shot at her and then left some diamonds by her side.

Black Cat then goes to meet Diamondback at his club and asks him about his intention, also pointing out his unusual return from being dead. As he explains his plan to take over New York while Hammerhead makes a call to Luke Cage to inform him on Willis Stryker.

Shortly, Cage comes crashing down seeking revenge over Willis for shooting his wife but the latter came prepared as he incapacitates Luke with toxic dust and left him to die after giving him a severe beating while Black Cat watched it all in horror.

Jessica meets Daredevil and Iron Fist in a bar as her investigation gave her no lead on Diamondback so far and Matt proposes that they should team up. She rushes to Night Nurse's clinic as soon as she hears Luke's news. With assistance from Vampire Hunter Blade, Nurse Linda Carter eventually manages to save Luke.

Jessica goes straight up to Club Ultimate to confront Diamondback as Matt and Danny join her but the villain surprisingly overpowers them all and ran. The trio then gave him a chase on street only to be gunned down by another vigilante known as The Punisher.

Danny, Jessica and Matt wake up at Night Nurse's clinic beside Luke Cake, who is surprised to hear that Frank Castle has actually shot at them. While Daredevil and Luke cage goes to apprehend Castle for some questioning, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist decide to take on Diamondback.

However, Willis tossed Jessica within her car when he spotted her and then broke Danny's back after blocking one of his powerful chi-Punch with ease. The mean street of New York now just got even meaner with their entire rampage and this marks a new formation of The Defenders.

The Punisher Strikes!

They brought back one of the oldest villain from Luke Cage's life who was dead for a long time and then just to make things a bit more interesting, Marvel dropped The Punisher in the story. Looks like Willis Stryker himself was quite a handful for the four of the Defenders of New York with his newfound enhanced strength.

There was a small cameo of Elektra, who is marking her return into their lives. When this is all set and done, a certain Merc with a Mouth is called in by private eye Jessica Jones to lend a hand or two in upcoming arc "Kingpins of New York".

Venom – Homecoming | Comics

Former Army Ranger Lee Price was thinking about how life choices are so easy for bad guys and how it takes a lot of strength to do the right thing at all times to be a good guy. He is currently looking for a job in New York City just to pay his rents and his friend Tony has set him up with Mac Gargan for an interview.

Trying to intimidate his new recruit, Gargan asks him if he has ever killed anyone and what was the reason for his discharge, to which Lee responds by saying, he can kill people if needed and two of his fingers blew out in the line of duty, which has classified him as "disabled".

Meanwhile, the Venom symbiote was wandering without a host for some time after being separated from Flash Thompson. When Lee and his friends showed up at their spot at that night for the job Gargan offered, it was an exchange between Tombstone's gang and Black Cat's gang.

It went sour and Tombstone's people start pulling their guns and then suddenly out of nowhere, the symbiote arrives at the scene and almost immediately bonded with Lee. Surprisingly enough, Lee gained total control over the suit and trashed his enemies.

He then kills his own peers and a homeless man to eradicate all evidence from scene before taking all the crates with him to his home. Back at his place, his suit was having a psychic struggle with Lee over taking control on him but it fails due to his training in army.

The next day, he goes to meet crime boss Black Cat to return her goodies back to her and decides to join her gang. Seeing Mac Gargan working for her, the symbiote protests his idea and even made him vomit to create a scene, which Gargan finds quite fishy.

When Lee returned to his apartment, he stumbled onto an assassin named Firebug, who is here on behalf of his boss to make him pay for murdering Tombstone's gang. As the guy had power of pyrokinesis, Venom finds it hard to fight back but to save Lee's life, it helped anyway.

At that very moment, FBI Agent Coyle Bagman and Wambaugh, who were keeping an eye on Lee decides to intervene and take him into custody. Lee escapes but the agents find him again, forcing to work for them whether he likes it or not as they are capable of neutralizing him anytime they want if he doesn't comply.

Deciding to unravel what is really at play with her new hired gun Lee Price, Black Cat sends him to scare off a Daily Bugle reporter from a story he's been working on, where Gargan tags along with him as Scorpion. The assignment quickly turned into a fight between the two.

When footage of their brawl goes live on social media, it catches the eyes of Spider-Man and he decides to bump in. Still, things start getting out of hand and the person who has the most experience with symbiotes; Eddie Brock enters the scene.

Marvel Comics
hires comic-book writer Mike Costa (Web Warriors of the Spider-Verse – Electroverse, Web Warriors of the Spider-Verse – Spiders Vs.) and artist Gerardo Sandoval (Age of Apocalypse – Warzones!, Korvac Saga – Warzones!) to cook up a brand-new storyline for their re-launch of new Venom monthly ongoing title in 2017.

Classic Spider-Man villains Black Cat and Scorpion also made special appearance into this arc which collects first six issues from the series. Plus, a new host for Klyntar is found in Lee Price, who has demonstrated his capability as a psychotic killer and to become a notorious villain.

Deadliest Fanged Monster

One of Spider-Man's arch nemesis for years, Venom returns with his third ongoing monthly series but this time, the suit didn't return as "Lethal Protector" Eddie Brock was during his run, nor "Agent of the Cosmos" it became with Flash Thompson. This time, the alien symbiote finds a host that is evil and it would still be an understatement to describe him.

Things will go crazy if he ever stumbles onto another deadly symbiote Carnage in Venom suit or worse, if Carnage chose him as new host. The series will explore new turn of events in next storyline "Land Before Crime" and paves a way for a few more in line.

Amazing Spider-Man – The Parker Luck | Comics

When Spider-Man was gone, the world has changed and Peter Parker returns only to discover someone amazing like him out there.

After one of his greatest enemies, Doctor Octopus living in his shell as Superior Spider-Man for months, Peter Parker is back again as the Amazing Spider-Man. Coming back, he responds to an alarm for robbery by The Menagerie; a gang of animal-themed criminal members led by White Rabbit.

They came here to loot an auction house with her accomplice Hippo, Panda-Mania and Skein. As he tries to confront them, Skein shreds up his whole costume using her power and he ends up stopping them buck-naked in public.

A few hours back, the first thing he does upon regaining his body is to attend a small press to explain how he is alive after a "Goblin Attack" on Parker Industries. Thanks to Doc Ock, his PhD is complete; he now owns the company and apparently is in a relationship with Anna Maria Marconi.

When he gets back to his apartment, Anna was already there and she figured out that he is Spider-Man by seeing footage of his bare body. He explains everything that happened and she is still baffled to know that she was dating a criminal.

Meanwhile, his buddies at Avengers Tower watched him back in action and even though Spider-Woman confirmed it really is indeed their old teammate judging by his goofiness but Captain America calls him to meet anyway. While they were running dozens of tests on him to determine if he really is the real-deal, they were catching up on how Doctor Octopus had mind-swapped with him.

Steve Rogers still remains a bit skeptical because he previously blamed being possessed by the alien symbiote for his behavior. Spidey hit him hard and lashed out at him when he learned that Steve was aware of Flash Thompson being active as Venom.

Amazing Spider-Man – The Parker Luck | Comics

Some of Otto's experiments on super-villain Electro have his powers malfunctioning and he decided to make a comeback. When he entered Conway Penitentiary to re-create his notorious "Breakout in Raft" act, he accidentally blew it up the whole joint.

With his powers gone haywire, Electro desperately seeks for a shelter and finds it on Francine Frye's apartment. Despite his warnings, she tried to kiss him and an uncontrolled power surge fried her. Driven mad by her death, Max Dillon goes after Spider-Man whom he believes responsible for all.

Also, Octavius had an encounter with costumed burglar Black Cat during his stint as a hero and he gave her a severe beating before leaving her wrapped in webs. She escaped captivity as a result of Electro's rampage and wanted to get back at Spidey for ruining her life by throwing her in jail.

She goes to see a confrontation between Spider-Man and Electro to help the latter using her luck power. Later she faced web-head when Max accidentally caused fire to a building full of homeless people and then offered Electro for a team-up.

Shortly, he joined assembled members of Avengers and X-Men to fight protect the city from Mindless Ones. They took down Exterminatrix and The Orb unleashes one of the eyes of the recently deceased Uatu the Watcher.

It shows him that, the radioactive spider that bit him thirteen years ago also bit a girl after him. The girl, Cindy Moon is later taken in by Ezekiel Sims and she is locked away to hide from Morlun. He breaks her out of a secret bunker and instead of being happy for freedom, she is angry on Peter for exposing her Morlun.

Although, the wall-crawler assures her that he took care of the totemic predator away for good, she insists that, he can come back again. Elsewhere, the villain senses her presence and declares of "The Greatest Hunt".

Cindy webbed up a costume for her and Peter learns that she is faster, has better reflexes if not stronger, improved spider-sense and they cannot get their hands off each other when in close proximity. She quickly catches on to the super-hero deal by adopting an identity of Silk and would probably save Spider-Man from getting his secret identity busted and his ass kicked.
