Marvel NOW! Confirms An All Female Superhero Series

Fearless Defenders # 1

In February, Marvel will debut Fearless Defenders, from the creative team of writer Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Venom) and, making his Marvel debut, artist Will Sliney (MacGyver, Farscape). The book stars the unlikely duo of Valkyrie and Misty Knight, and is something of a follow-up to the Fear Itself: The Fearless miniseries, which also starred Valkyrie and featured Bunn as lead writer.

The basic idea of the book is that Valkyrie is choosing a new team of Valkyrior, and she’s been asked to choose all these women from the heroes of Midgard, instead of from Asgard. She has completely failed in this task. [Laughs.] Valkyrie has been unable to choose anyone that she feels is worthy to be one of the hosts of the shield maidens. So she just hasn’t done it. She’s dropped the ball.

Because she’s not done what she said she would do, nature — or supernature, as it is — abhors a vacuum. The absence of the Valkyrior has opened the door to something terrible. Something awful is waking, and Valkyrie finds that it’s really her fault that she’s put everything at risk. – Cullen Bunn
