The four street-level Marvel heroes of Netflix's previous series come together in a sharp-looking poster.

"They're the greatest stories ever told," Lee said as he rides around New York City in the back of a car, his words interspersed with action scenes featuring the Defenders characters. "Heroes show we don't need to be perfect to do what's right. It's not about living without fear, but facing injustice. It's not about being powerful, but finding your calling when you least expect it."

Lee, 94, was recently honored as a Disney Legend. His hand- and foot-prints were also immortalized in cement outside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood this week. He co-created the superheroes Spider-Man, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, Thor, the X-Men and many others for Marvel.
