Why It’s Hard To Defend The Defenders

The Defender’s is Marvel’s latest show on Netflix. It’s a good watch, but it’s not great. There are many issues to nitpick at but I’m going to skip those and give one SOLID example of bad story writing.

Episode 7

Go about 17 minutes in.

Colleen Wing is staring at the crime scene bulletin board trying to piece things together…

And then it dawns on me… Isn’t Misty Knight supposed to do that? Wasn’t that her unexplained power to piece things together by looking at pictures?

What happened Douglas and Marco? Did you forget to watch Luke Cage before you started penning this storyline?

Bad writing. Shame on you.
