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.

Defenders – Diamonds Are Forever

Marvel's The Defenders
television series on online streaming-service Netflix was one of the hottest buzz in 2017 and to catch up with the show, Marvel Comics decided to bring back Defenders monthly ongoing series in publication.

Also, it followed the TV line-up for heroes by putting Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist together to reform the band once again.

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".

Savage Wolverine – Hands on a Dead Body | Comics

Two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were talking on the topic of how their job is affecting their personal life in S.H.I.E.L.D. Nega-Compound B, where they were guarding a corpse of a super-villain. Elektra, the assassin for hire suddenly breaks into the compound and took down the guards within moments. It appears that what she was looking for is the corpse of the menacing villain Bullseye, who were slain by the costumed hero Daredevil during the prior events of “Shadowland”.

Hawkeye, Spider-Man and Spider-Woman of The Avengers were having a rough time to resist Wolverine from killing the hulking villain Infernock for burning half of his face. Finally, it was Captain America who talked him down for good. Back at the HQ, he is still pissed off about his face and when Spidey confronted Logan about this, Elektra arrives to seek Logan’s assistance. Without even asking for a reason, Logan gets dressed up to get going with her at once, much to Spidey's surprise.

Meanwhile, Kingpin is informed by The Hand that recently the mysterious grotesque entity, The Arbiters has raised a dead one from past to test him, who is now tasked to kill him. As the representative of The Arbiters leaves, Kingpin unleashed his anger on the two remaining ninja guards. Elektra and Wolverine are soon confronted by Lady Bullseye and met Kingpin who hired them both for an important task.

In The Hand’s lair the duo is approached by a gang of ninjas but Elektra quickly took out their leader and Logan gets on offing the rest of them. After taking a few hits, he gives in to his animal rage and makes a quick work of the rest. Elektra and Wolverine goes deep inside the quarters below but by then The Arbiters have already resurrected their agent to kill Kingpin. There, these two came across Mikaru the Blind, who tells them to leave or suffer the wrath of Shikaru the Mute.

Wolverine defies Mikaru's warning and engages in a furious battle against the dreaded goliath like being named Shikaru in a deadly duel while Elektra tries to figure a way out of this situation. Meanwhile, in the new Shadowland at Hell's Kitchen, Wilson Fisk is visited by someone from his past he never thought he'd see again and to be the leader of The Hand, he must prove himself against his assassin.
