    My one complaint? Once again, Umar is wearing a badly drawn bikini that's poorly illustrated by Marvel's censors. Who wears a bikini when they're having sex! Come on! What kills me is that the Legion of Decency was so outraged by the possibility of breasts and nipples being seen in a super-hero comic book that so flustered they sometimes forgot to draw in the bikini when the panel-angle was more discreet. The end result is Umar's flickering bikini. I get the impression that the Defenders was originally intended for a more mature audience before Marvel decided to release the title for all eyes. The implication of sex alone would seem to strengthen the argument. Read Full Review
