DEFENDERS (1972) (#1-152) (MARVEL) #147 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Defenders (1972) #147
Guest-starring Sgt. Fury (sort of...). "...And Games!" is written by Peter B. Gillis and drawn by Don Perlin and Art Nichols. The demon named Hotspur has taken over the minds of some high-spirited New Yorkers and transformed a portion of Central Park into his own private bacchanal. The debauchery and cruelty suits Hotspur's tastes perfectly as he's actually an 18th century nobleman who found sport in torture. Satan rewarded Hotspur for his wickedness by granting him a new life in modern times, an indestructible body and the ability to make people see whatever he wished them to see. Now he plans to convert more people into his demonic followers and re-create Hell on Earth.

Standing against him are an eclectic but stalwart group of Defenders including Valkyrie, the Beast, Iceman, the Gargoyle, Andromeda and Cloud. Andromeda draws first blood but soon realizes she can't harm Hotspur's immortal form. Valkyrie fares not much better but rather than fighting the 18th century libertine she finds herself battling a host of Trolls. As this illusion is ripped away, the Defenders find themselves in the grips of Hotspur's terrible Hades-Engine, a machine designed to neutralize their powers. To their aid comes the most unlikely of Defenders: Sgt. Fury himself! The World War II ramrod frees them from the Hades-Engine but without their powers, the Defenders have no weapons to use against Hotspur until Fury gives them all machine guns. But before they squeeze those triggers will the Defenders realize that their targets aren't Hotspur's demons but are in reality, innocent bystanders?
