Marvel Comics Introducing A New VALKYRIE Seemingly Based On Tessa Thompson's THOR: RAGNAROK Hero

In the upcoming King in Black: Return of the Valkyries, the Marvel Comics Universe is getting a new Valkyrie who most definitely appears to be based on Thor: Love and Thunder star Tessa Thompson...

Last week, Marvel Comics announced King in Black: Return of the Valkyries, a new series from writers Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk with art by Nina Vakyeva. 

The comic will see Jane Foster reuniting the Valkyries to defend Midgard from Knull. The former Mighty Thor will be joined by former Valkyrie Dani Moonstar, Asgardian warrior Hildegarde, and a new Valkyrie designed by artist Mattia De Iulis.

You can take a look at this mysterious new character in all her glory on Phil Noto's gorgeous variant cover for the debut issue. Does she look familiar? Well, it's hard to deny that there are some similarities to Thor: Love and Thunder star Tessa Thompson, and it seems that's where Marvel took inspiration from.

"When [editor] Wil Moss asked me to create a new design for a Valkyrie, I didn't believe him!" De Iulis says. "I'm so excited about this because it is my first experience in this field and I'm really honored to work on this amazing and powerful character!"

Emerging just as Knull’s takeover begins, this new Valkyrie’s past holds dark secrets that will change everything you thought you knew about this group of Asgardians and reveal what their future in the Marvel Universe holds. Check out Phil Noto’s cover, Mattia De Iulis’ character designs, and be there when this all-new Marvel hero joins the fight against Knull this January!
