Marvel NOW! Unveils Their All-Female, The Fearless Defenders

Launching in February 2013, The Fearless Defenders is to be written by Cullen Bunn with art by Will Sliney and features Valkyrie and Misty Knight as co-leaders of a new team.

Valkyrie trying to make amends for her mistakes—mistakes that put the entire world in jeopardy—is tasked with choosing a group of heroic women to fight by her side, not from the women of Asgard, but from the heroic women of Earth.  Circumstance will provide her with an unlikely partner in this task, as she is joined by private investigator Misty Knight. With very different points of view and very different approaches, they will both find their definitions of heroism and honor put to the test by the women they lead and the challenges they face.
