List of All Defenders Members

Updated September 13, 2017 6.4k views50 items

Here is the full roster of the Marvel Comics superhero team, the Defenders, one of the most published superhero groups in comic book history. Created by Roy Thomas, the comic book superhero group made their first appearance in Marvel Feature #1 (1971). When Earth was invaded by the Undying Ones, Stephen Strange formed an unofficial team of outsiders. Who are all the members in the Defenders?

The original Defenders lineup includes leader Doctor Strange, Hulk, Namor, and Silver Surfer. Throughout the years, Beast, Nighthawk, and Valkyrie have all become Defenders leaders. Many popular Marvel characters, like Ant-Man, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, have also joined the group. 

Did you forget who is in the Defenders? Check out the complete list of all Defenders below.
