Jane Foster to Emerge out of the War of the Realms as VALKYRIE

After being revealed at the Marvel panel that Jason Aaron and Al Ewing were set to combine forces on a new Valkyrie series at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, more has now been revealed about the upcoming series.

The series will star none other than Jane Foster and sprout up out of the second issue out of the War of the Realms series. In the issue, Foster, after witnessing the complete massacre of the Valkyries, the former Thor decides she will assume the role as the Valkyrie, while readers wait in limbo as to what has become of the most-recent Valkyrie, Brunhilde.

“There’s a line in Valkyrie #1: ‘Thor is a god, Valkyrie is a job.’ Jane knows how to be Thor, but the role of Valkyrie — the warrior who fights for the living and the dead, and stands between both — is a very different beast,” said Ewing. “It’s a sacred task, and brings additional abilities — and responsibilities — of its own. As the first of a new generation of Valkyries, Jane has to decide for herself what that task involves, and that’s a big part of what we’ll be exploring in this series. If you’re reading this, you know who Valkyrie is, but what she is is one of the big philosophical underpinnings of the book.”

Look for Valkyrie #1 to land on shelves in July. For more information on Marvel releases in July, click HERE.
