Marvel Feature #1 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
After receiving a psychic call from Yandroth the supreme scientist, Doctor Strange (Sorcerer Supreme), visits the caller at his hospital bed. The dying Yandroth reveals him about the existence of the Omegatron a device capable of activating all nuclear stockpile held on earth, five hours after its creator's demise. When the villain scientist passes away, Doctor Strange gathers (with difficulty) two of the most powerful beings on the planet to avoid the catastrophe: the Sub-Mariner and the incredible Hulk. The group finds the complex where the fatal device is located. But as the two powerhouses enter a chamber, Strange discovers that they've been set up: Omegatron needs to feed from the Hulk's and Namor's energy to activate itself. Strange tries stopping his partners but they are tricked and attack the sorcerer! Using hallucinations to escape from the duo, Doctor Strange defeats Omegatron by casting a spell that slows down time for it, making seconds minutes, hours, days, years, centuries, etc. Finally, Doctor Strange explains Namor and the Hulk everything and names the group the Defenders. But the Sub-Mariner and Jade Jaws leave regretting of having gathered.
