DEFENDERS (1972) (#1-152) (MARVEL) #65 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Defenders (1972) #65
"Of Ambitions and Giant Amoebas" is written by David Kraft with art by Don Perlin and Bruce D. Cover by Keith Pollard. Guest starring Millie the Model. Changes are the norm for the Marvel Universe's "non-team" but some alterations are easier to ride out than others. Take Patsy (Hellcat) Walker who started out her professional life as a model, then married her high school sweetheart who turned into a heartless super-villain, found the Cat's old super-suit and became a super-heroine, joined the Avengers and then the Defenders and now finds she has developed devastating mental abilities. After all she's seen and done, can this homespun, happy-go-lucky model-turned-costumed adventurer ever go home again?

Then, take the case of the Valkyrie, a Norse gatherer of the dead now inhabiting the mortal body of a madwoman Barbara Norris. For a time she found a home in the Defenders, but now she's plagued with maddening visions and urges to go into a berserker rage. And then there's the Red Guardian, a Soviet scientist who took over the costume and name of Russia's version of >, Captain America, only to be transformed into a radioactive super-being by her former lover, the man now called the Presence. Can these three women survive the transformations rocking their young lives? Stay tuned, pilgrim!
