Valkyrie first appeared in The Avengers and has become a mainstay of the superhero team known as the Defenders. An Asgardian by birth, Valkyrie, also known by her real name Brunnhilde, was selected by Odin to lead the Valkyrior. Valkyrie is the strongest of all Valkyrior. Like all her people, her tissue and bone are several times as dense as the mortal equivalent. Though she is not immortal, she ages far more slowly than humans. Valkyrie can perceive the approach of death, in the form of a “deathglow” surrounding a person’s body. She doesn’t know how death will come but she can tell that it is imminent. Valkyrie can transport herself and a dying or dead body to and from the realm of the dead by willing it. Valkyrie has had extensive training in sword fighting as well as unarmed combat and horseback riding. Her natural fighting ability is among the best of all Asgardian females, matched only by Sif.

Marvel Legends Valkyrie
Above average articulation
Really nice head sculpt
Could have used a few more paint apps
I personally do not know a lot about this character and her history. However the design and execution of her persona are spot on. Valkyrie also makes a really nice figure to add to your Asgardian section of you collection. She fits right in that grouping. For me it’s a nice background figure if your collection is deep. If your cherry picking the line it all comes down to room. Enjoy the Images!
