The new series will focus on Valkyrie and Misty Knight.
Newsarama has confirmed that Outhouse favorite Cullen Bunn will be writing a new series called Fearless Defenders. The series will star Valkyrie, whom Bunn previously wrote in Fear Itself: The Fearless, and Misty Knight. In an interview with Bunn, the writer stated that the new Defenders team will be all-female and will be a new version of the Valkyrior, the band of Asgardian warriors who escort warriors to the afterlife. The series will also feature Dani Moonstar and several other female characters, some of whom are new. Will Sliney will be on art duties.
This book has all the makings of a "win" for Marvel. Bunn's a popular writer underutilized by the company, and Marvel has been criticized for not focusing on its female characters. Whether the book can survive in the market is another matter, but Bunn's involvement gives it our backing unconditionally.
