Marvel relaunches Valkyrie with a new protagonist
Why, in reality, is revealed in the second issue of the crossover War of the Realms, so if you don't want spoilers, avoid going over.
CAUTION: THE FOLLOWING NEWS CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!
Bleeding Cool has revealed how in the series the Uncanny X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy and War of the Realms, in fact, there were a lot of dead excellent, including that of Valkyrie. Then, of course, given that it may not be the protagonist of a new series, which means that in need of a replacement, and Jane Foster is ready to take on this new role.
As explained by Ewing in an interview on Marvel.com: “at The end of the WAR OF THE REALMS #2), the Valkyries are dead. And the Valhalla is gone. Because without at least a warrior that takes on this role, and the name of the Valkyries, there can be no Valhalla. But, of course, the fact that we have a new comic that comes out is going to mean that someone takes this burden... and is someone that many readers have waited to long to see them again in action – Jane Foster!”
But Ewing says that the old Valkyrie will not disappear completely from the scene: “it's Not like the old Valkyrie. Brunhilde will be available occasionally to be consulted, but no longer belongs to the world of the living – then Jane is for the most part alone. That said, it has something that has never been seen in the world of Asgard – UNDRJARN THE ALL-WEAPON, forged among the fires of War that can change shape and be anything – even wings! Which does not necessarily mean that there won't be a flying horse, but I'm anticipating it too...
And describes what fans will find in the comic: “There is a joke in VALKYRIE #1: “Thor is a god, and the Valkyrie is a job”. Jane knows how to be Thor, but the role of a Valkyrie – a warrior that fights for the living and the dead, and stands between both – it's a very different thing. It is a sacred duty, and involves other skills and responsibilities. As the first of a new generation of Valkyries, Jane must decide for herself what this means for this task, and this is an important part of what we will explore in this series”.
