Synopsis
Dr. Strange gathers a group of four heroes to Phoenix, Arizona and forms the first team of Secret Defenders. The new Defenders foil a bank robbery but are flummoxed when one of the robbers ages and dies in his cell. Trying to unravel the mystery, Wolvie and Spider-Woman come up against the super powered villains, Decimator and Tokamak, and are able to handily beat them until Dreadlox enters the fray.
