Super Insomnia

For all the tragedy that struck the Defenders, there was humor and irony along the way. This panel from Defenders #120 showed the Defenders responding when Hellcat woke up screaming from a nightmare that Daimon Hellstrom was in trouble.

Seen here with her hair up in curlers, housekeeper Dolly Donahue would advise Hellcat not to get involved with the so-called Son of Satan.

Yet those concerns didn't prejudice Dolly against Gargoyle; she in fact developed warm feelings toward the winged hero. Wearing a nightshirt and cap to bed, there was no doubt that a genuine man resided inside his demonic form.

Even with her sword up in the air, it was a change of pace to see Valkyrie in a nightgown instead of armor. With most of his body covered for a change, the blue-furred Beast looked almost inconspicuous in this scene.

Defenders. Vol. 1. No. 120. June 1983. "Sanctuary." J.M. DeMatteis (scripter), Don Perlin (penciler) Abel, MeMulder & Mushynsky (inkers), Shelly Leferman (letterer), George Rousos (colorist), Allen Milgrom (editor), Jim Shooter (chief).
