The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Stargate Pioneer, Agent Lauren and Guest Agent 2099 discuss the second The Defenders episode “Mean Right Hook,” highlight some recent Marvel news and respond to listener feedback. The Agents debrief you on Iron Fist versus Luke Cage and this epic punch, how the plot stories come at us a bit sidewise like a good mean right hook, that the characters continue to meet, there is no true team-up 2 episodes in, more about Alexandria, and why no one is happy to see Stick.
