    I'm so glad this got the nod, but why did they have to call it "Defenders"? We've already got a team of Defenders.

    Or just "the Fearless." That was a cool title.

    If it's an all-girl team, maybe Clea will be involved. Or they'll let some of their male friends come along for an adventure or two later.

    I'm very much looking forward to this and I like that it's not an Avengers book. Giving it the defenders name is fine with me. I love Bunn's insistence to keep the roster a mystery!

    Looks promising, I hope its more exciting than the rest of Bunn's work I've sampled.
    Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Constantine, Earth-2, Suicide Squad, Phantom Stranger, Forever Evil, Rogues Rebellion, Arkham War, ARGUS, Iron Man & Unity. Trades: Saga, East of West & Lazarus.

    I'll try to at least give some hints: Since this is a Defenders book, there definitely needs to be a magic-based character, a hulk-like character, a cosmic-class character. I've probably said enough with that!
    Oooooooh, this is gonna be a fun guessing game!

    I made the choice to have the first villain in the book be a woman, but I don't want folks to think that this series is just gonna be about good girls versus bad girls. The dangers the new Valkyrie will face will follow no set criteria in terms of gender. They simply have to be extremely dangerous.

    Our main villain is an opportunist, and she sees a chance to make some big moves thanks to Valkyrie's indecision in regards to selecting a new team of Valkyrie. She has a goal that she's had in her twisted little mind since she was a child. She's thought about it endlessly, built her life around it and now, finally, is her time to strike.
    I do love villains who can play a long game. Like Kingsley in Spider-Man.

    I like that they said there will be a lightness to the book.

    the exotic back alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown.
    Mr. Bunn...if you're planning to do a "Big Trouble in Little China" storyline...GO FOR IT!!!

    I think people who follow me on Twitter and the like have heard me say this quite a bit. At the risk of repeating myself again, I just want to say that it's important to tell your retailers to order this book for you! This is a different kind of book with a different kind of cast. That makes it a prime candidate for encouraging your friends, your family, and your local comic shop to support it!
    You heard the man!

    But yeah, VERY excited for this book!!!

    Give me... GAMORA!!!
    Don't give up hope!

    Give me...Songbird and Troll!!
    And would be awesome!

    God, I can't WAIT!

    They should go for a completely random choice like Nekra.
    Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Constantine, Earth-2, Suicide Squad, Phantom Stranger, Forever Evil, Rogues Rebellion, Arkham War, ARGUS, Iron Man & Unity. Trades: Saga, East of West & Lazarus.

    Sounds promising though it is a bit weird the no-mention to the Enchantress on the Interview considering that she is an important key to Valkyrie`s life. I hope this it isn`t retconned.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she shows up.
