Summer means superhero films so Balladeer’s Blog’s “Script Doctoring” of Marvel’s handling of Foolkiller continues with Part Seventeen.

Our anti-hero Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) ends his run with the dynamic non-team called the Defenders this time around. Valkyrie’s vendetta against the Mandrill is center-stage as is that mutant villain’s vendetta against the Defenders, Daredevil and his own parents.

The lives of millions of innocent people are at risk in addition to the Mandrill’s actual targets. One last reminder that, though Foolkiller’s awkward moniker may put off some readers, it’s based on the figure from 19th Century American folklore.  Continue reading

This time around in my alternate universe the controversial Foolkiller did for sales of The Defenders what the controversial Wolverine did for sales of The X-Men. That being the case The Defenders at long last got a second edition of Defenders Annual. Fans of the dynamic non-team will remember that Defenders Annual # 1 featured World Gone Sane, the conclusion of the epic length Nebulon/Headmen storyline.

Defenders Annual # 2, here in my treatment, would feature the Defenders (Hulk, Valkyrie, Nighthawk, Hellcat and Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) getting reunited with the Red Guardian to help her thwart the latest world-conquering scheme of the Defenders’ foe known as the Presence. Continue reading
