The Defenders are back: Nighthawk! Colossus! She-Hulk! The Blazing Skull! And they've got their very own state to protect and serve (just don't call 'em "new", True Believers)! The Sons of the Serpent have moved in and only one fully-sanctioned team of super heroes can stop them! But will their first official mission end up as their final mission? Believe it or not...yes!
