Synopsis for "Riot in Cellblock 12!"Edit

As Dr. Strange searches to try and find out the source of his weakened powers, the rest of the Defenders begin to search for Valkyrie. As they search for her, Val herself fed-up with the poor conditions and treatment she has received in prison breaks out of her solitary cell. She then finds that the prison is currently in a riot situation and one of the inmates is holding the warden hostage.

The Defenders meanwhile learn that Val has been arrested for destruction of property and learn of the situation at the prison, however when they arrive they find that Val has already defused the situation.
