Defenders Throwbacks: Then and Now

Defenders Then and Now

It's about to get a little crowded in Hell's Kitchen. The time has arrived for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to assemble as The Defenders premieres on Netflix this month. The show will follow the storyline from the end of Daredevil season 2, in which all of the characters finally cross paths to take down The Hand, an ancient organization that is (as you may have guessed) up to no good. If you've watched any of Marvel's shows on Netflix, you know that the personalities of these characters are not of those who work well in teams. Therefore, The Defenders is bound to offer some fun and intriguing character dynamics. In fact, we've already seen some of it in the trailer!  

Though this will be the first live action version of The Defenders; the group has existed in comics since 1971 when Doctor Strange recruited Namor and Hulk to form a team that eventually added others as well. This lineup may be an all-new team of Defenders, but they do each have their own history in comics. Most of the characters featured in the series were introduced in comic books more than 30 years ago, with the exception of Jessica Jones, whose first appearance in Alias #1 came in 2001. Jones also happens to be the one who most resembles her initial comic book appearance. Take a look below at our interactive images comparing the main four Defenders and several supporting characters to their original comic book...

Sentient Vehicles Header

The concept of a vehicle that can act on its own has been around for decades. Movies and TV shows have often featured these characters with varying degrees of sentience, from cars that can talk and sing and interact with humans to other vehicles who are portrayed merely as self-driving, with no other personality traits. With both Cars 3 and Transformers: The Last Knight in theaters this month, there was no better time than now to create this infographic which features 25 of our very favorite sentient vehicles, dating all the way back to 1941. We’ve included Lightning McQueen and Optimus Prime, of course, but we're also sure to mention some lesser-known vehicles, such as a vampire motorcycle and a murderous semi-truck.
