A loose association of street-level metahumans, vigilantes, and do-gooders based in New York City.


"The Defenders" grew out of a two-year confrontation with Wilson Fisk, a secretive crime-lord responsible for producing the deadly designer drug IGH and orchestrating the mass bombings of tenements and other low-income housing in Hell's Kitchen.

The group came to prominence in the aftermath of the Hell's Kitchen bombings, often at the forefront of relief and recovery efforts. It was credited for putting the Kingpin and many of his associates behind bars in September 2018.

How to Join

The Defenders doesn't have a formal membership or bylaws. It's not always clear who's in or who's out, and there's no one really running the show. The best — really, the only — way to join is to get to know the people who consider themselves a part of it.
