A Similar To MCU Version Of Valkyrie Joins EXILES

Saladin Ahmed and Javier Rodriguez add the Asgardian to the team!

This spring, the man once known as Nick Fury—now called the Unseen—enlists a new super group to protect the universe from an all-encompassing threat. Summoning Blink, Iron Lad, Wolvie, and Khan to face down the oncoming storm, the Unseen drafts one final member…Valkyrie!

On April 11, writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Javier Rodriguez present an alternate future on the brink of destruction in EXILES! Featuring a unique and powerful lineup, the addition of an all-new Valkyrie takes this series to new heights.

“Valkyrie’s a character who’s always appealed to me. Her iconic warrior-woman look—spear! sword! flying horse!—but also the juxtaposition of a kickass ancient fantasy hero operating in contemporary New York City. She’s a classic Marvel heroine,” explains Ahmed. “But the EXILES version of Valkyrie is a bit different from what we’ve seen in comics thus far. Our Valkyrie is known as the Lone Defender of Asgard, and she’s a tankard-draining, maiden-wooing, giant-slaying thunderbolt of a woman. Though she’s not technically from the Marvel Cinematic Universe reality, she’s basically the literalization of the larger-than-her-physical-frame swagger that Tessa Thompson displayed in ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ turned up to 11.”
