In Marvel Comics, Valkyrie is a fictional superheroine. She is the shieldmaiden to the god Thor and a tyrant on the world of Sakaar. Inspired by Norse mythology, the character was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. Her name translates to “valkyrie” in English, and she grants her lord immortality and invulnerability in exchange for her love.

The Exiles comic book series is an alternate universe take on many of your favorite Marvel characters, including the Valkyrie. This mysterious character was portrayed by Tessa Thompson in the recent movie, Thor: Ragnarok, but her origin story is different from the one seen in the comics. Here’s a look at her origin story and why she’s a great fit for the Exiles team.
In the MCU, the Valkyrie goes by the name King Valkyrie, but in the comics, she is known as Brunnhilde. In the comics, Val was the only survivor of the Valkyriors, who led the heroic dead of Asgard to Valhalla. After Hela slaughtered her family millennia ago, King Val was forced to escape, wounding up on the planet Sakaar as Scrapper 142 in the Grandmaster’s arena. However, when Thor rescues her, Val reconnects with her Asgardian roots.
Valkyrie thor is a tyrant on Sakaar
When Thor and Valkyrie first met, the latter was a shadow of her former self. As a warrior of centuries, Valkyrie had a lot more experience in combat than Thor. It’s also possible that Valkyrie wasn’t captured because she was older and had more experience. It’s also possible that the two were in a different time zone, but that’s speculation.
Thor Odinson, the God of Thunder, is the ruler of the planet Sakaar. He escaped from the clutches of Hela, and was in need of a new home. Valkyrie was reluctant to work with the new king of New Asgard, but eventually agrees to fight alongside him, Loki, and the Hulk. Despite their differences, the two ally themselves in the struggle against the evil tyrant Hela.

Tessa Thompson plays the Asgardian warrior Valkyrie. Her history is somewhat confusing. The character was first introduced in the comics, in the Incredible Hulk #125, by Thomas and Trimpe. She had been trapped in a mystical dimension and driven to madness.
Valkyrie has been an important part of the Marvel Comics universe. She played a key role in the endgame of Avengers: Endgame, when she defeated Thanos and returned to Asgard. She was then named the ruler of the Norwegian community in New Asgard, and she helped the refugees settle.
Valkyrie granted her lover immortality and invulnerability
In Norse mythology, there are many female warriors, including Valkyries. However, they did not live in the same world as the gods; instead, they lived in one of nine realms, summoned by Odin in times of war. Although it is not known when the Valkyrie character first appeared, her first appearance occurred in Avengers #83 in the 1970s. She later became a mainstay of the Defenders, and was a close ally of Thor.
Valkyrie and Thor made an improbable friendship during the events of Thor: Ragnarok. While Thor was protecting his people and the Asgardians, Valkyrie did her part to protect her people. She also survived the Blip attack on the universe and the Thanos attack on the Asgardians. Afterward, she took on the role of ruling the Norwegian community of New Asgard. She also helped the Norwegian refugees settle in the newly-built city.
Valkyrie’s reviving powers
Thor’s reviving powers are a mystery. The character has been shown to commune with the spirits of the dead, but it is unclear how this relates to her power to revive the dead. While Thompson has stated that her power allows her to visit Valhalla, this doesn’t necessarily mean that she can bring back the dead. Instead, Thompson’s comments suggest that she can revive the dead only in the Asgardian world, and she may be limited to reviving Asgardian characters.
In an interview with W Magazine, Tessa Thompson teased that her character, Valkyrie, will have new powers in the upcoming Marvel film Thor: Love and Thunder. She referred to these powers as “weird and erotic.” In the movie, she will be able to bring people back to life by bringing them to Valhalla, the Asgardian equivalent of the afterlife.
Her relationship with Brunnhilde
The relationship between Valkyrie Thor and his sister Brunnhilde was explored in depth in Thor: The Dark World and its sequels. Brunnhilde trained with Odin’s most accomplished warrior, Sigmund, before his death from an arrow to the heart. In the comics, Brunnhilde cradles Sigmund’s body in her arms, tearing up. When the god asks her to leave the dead Sigmund’s grave, she refuses to. She tells Odin that he is a monster, and draws her sword.
The relationship between Thor and Brunnhilde has been a long one. She is the first to protect Thor and Asgard, and she first appeared in The Defenders issue 4 (1973). She has also been portrayed by Amora the Enchantress. In The Incredible Hulk, Samantha Parrington portrayed her.
