Last week, Marvel announced the Exiles was returning, lead by Blink and featuring a number of different Marvel characters. Today, the publisher unveiled the fifth member of the team – Valkyrie!

“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,” said series writer Saladin Ahmed in a statement from Marvel. “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.”

The success of Thor: Ragnarok definitely played a role in getting Valkyrie on the team, and we’ll see how much fans like the lineup with Exiles #1 arrives on April 11, 2018.
