Synopsis for "-- In the Jaws of the Serpent!"Edit

With Dr. Strange, Valkyrie, Yellowjacket and Nighthawk prisoners of the Sons of the Serpent, Bruce Banner rushes to Dr. Strange's Sanctum for help. With Clea's aid, Bruce summons past Defenders associates: Power Man, Son of Satan, and Daredevil to aid in rescuing the captured Defenders.

While the fill in Defenders question the captured Serpent member as to the location of the Serpents base, the captured Defenders revive to find that Valkyrie missing. Yellowjacket tries to free other others and they also learn that they are somewhere under water.

Back in Dr. Strange's Sanctum, as their interrogation fails, the Defenders hear a news report of the Sons of the Serpent about to sacrifice Valkyrie on an inverted cross. Banner changes into the Hulk and the Defenders that are not captured rush to their rescue. On the way, Son of Satan and Power Man are teleported elsewhere. During their battle the Hulk is struck blind by one of the Son's weapons, and Daredevil is easily overpowered.
