The Lives of Each Defenders is Brought by a common enemy
18 August 2017 | by pablommorilloSee all my reviews

So basically we are seeing our warriors live their lives 1 year after all their problems happened. Times have changed, and many are just doing their jobs and having relations. A direct way to make this realistic. Also, I love having a Comic Movie.. but having a comic Series based on a TEAM of HEROES!? You have to be kidding.
