Defenders, The #111 Review by (February 15, 2010)
Events in this book refer to Amazing Adventures #15; Avengers #144, #151; Defenders #77, #94, #99, #100, #105, #109; and Doctor Strange #16. In reading this book, one may think about the dark-side of us all. The writer implies that we create all our own demons and thus we have the power to overcome them. There is obviously a side story building involving the resurrected Nighthawk, and alternate President Kyle Richmond, and The Over-Mind!


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Defenders, The #111 Synopsis by Jon Ryser
We are taken through the pages of Patsy Walker's (Hellcat's) diary; specifically, her search for her father. She has been told that Satan is her father and she needs to know the truth. She tracks her father to a small town where she meets Nicholis Eblis.

We have an interlude: Hulk, Sub-Mariner, Doctor Strange, and a now living Nighthawk are in an underground base of some sort. There they find Hyperion! - end interlude.

Nicholis Eblis shows himself to be Satan. While fighting him, Hellcat changes to her devil form. She regains control of herself just in time. Satan informs her that if she hadn't, he would have had her soul. He then reveals that he is not her father. On a strange trip through hell, he tells her that he is not Lucifer, but has adopted the persona of Satan (from the Christian Bible). He will help her find her real father because he feels he owes her a debt since she so touched his son's heart that he learned to love. He says that once his debt is paid though, he'll owe her nothing and may try to get her again. Hellcat finds her real father, Joshua Walker.

We end with President Kyle Richmond meeting with The Over-Mind!
