DEFENDERS (1972) (#1-152) (MARVEL) #145 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Defenders (1972) #145
"Five Women" is written by Peter Gillis and drawn by Don Perlin and Art Nichols. This issue is for completists only. With storylines like this one, in which so little happens it seems to have been written in slow motion, it's not hard to see why this title ended soon after this issue hit the stands. The New Defenders are in clean-up mode after a battle that was much more exciting last issue and find themselves wondering if it might be time to throw in the towel. Into this atmosphere of malaise, comes Johnny Blaze and his semi-psychic girlfriend who ride their motorcycle through Gen. Argyle Fist's Army barricade.

But Blaze isn't there to join the team, reform the Champions or even revive the Defenders' spirits. He's there to borrow money from the Angel, who is recovering from injuries suffered last issue. Less clear is the motive of Andrea, the strange woman who is befriending stockbroker Tony, in order to steal his credit cards through the use of super-futuristic robot who flies just out of sight outside his apartment. And even more murky is the background of the mysterious Defender named Cloud, who appears to be both less and more than human.
