Marvel December 02018 solicits include Defenders: "The Best Defense"; Dr. Strange dead? [Newsarama] [Doctor Strange #10/#400 in January]

Read "THE BEST DEFENSE" in order!

An unsolvable murder. An aquatic doorway to nothingness. A wanderer at the end of time. And a cosmic train of planetary proportions. Four seemingly-unrelated events that will require the powers and insights of the members of the greatest Non-Team of them all, the original DEFENDERS, to connect the dots and challenge the strange power behind these disconnected happenings- before all of reality pays the price! Doctor Strange! Immortal Hulk! Namor the Sub-Mariner! The Silver Surfer! Don't call them a team- call them the DEFENDERS!
