Marvel to Launch New EXILES Series, featuring Blink, Nick Fury, Wolvie & Valkyrie!

Marvel Comics announced a new EXILES comic book series that will be launching in April. The team would be directed by the original Nick Fury, who now operates from the Moon. He now goes by the Unseen since killing off the Watcher and is forced to act as an omniscient observer of life on Earth. Fury will use his cosmic awareness to recruit a team of interdimentional adventurers to go on missions and save the multiverse.

I generally love the Exiles. But I'm Still warming to this team of Exiles. They consist of Blink (the teleporting X-Man from the Age of Apocalypse), Iron Lad (the former Young Avenger and heroic younger version of Kang the Conqueror), Kamala Khan (an older version of Ms. Marvel), and Wolvie (a baby version of Wolverine).

It turns out that Wolvie is a member of Xavier's Playtime Fun School for Gifted Youngsters, which was created by one of Mojo's rivals back in the X-BABIES mini-series nearly fifteen years ago.

Earlier today, we learned the identity of the mysterious fifth Exile: a new Valkyrie character whose patterned after Tessa Thompson's character from the recent "Thor: Ragnarok" movie! She's known as the Lone Defender of Asgard in her native alternate reality.

EXILES will be written by Saladin Ahmed and will feature artwork by Javier Rodriguez.
