Copycat Cover: Giant-Size Defender #1 (Updated)

Dork Note: I always thought the Giant Size X-Men cover; which spawned many repeat X-Men covers over the years was a first. However, Giant-Size Defender #1 was published in 1974 and predated the X-Men cover by almost a year. Both covers were done by Gil Kane, who did 21 Giant-Size covers for Marvel between 1974 and 1975. Why he choose to repeat the same composition for only two books is anyone's guess, but it would be cool to know why.
