"Fearless Defenders" writer Cullen Bunn disusses some of the series' recent reveals, including the revelation that the team's arch enemy Caroline LeFay is the daughter of two major Marvel villains. Plus,

When the Asgardian goddess known as Valkyrie failed to fulfill her obligation to create a new order of sacred warrior women known as Shieldmaidens, someone else stepped up to fill that void. Unfortunately for Valkyrie, that person is a ruthless and enigmatic woman named Caroline LeFay, and she just so happens to want to replace the Shieldmaidens, with their ancient, corrupted and powerful predecessors, the Doom Maidens.


Welcome to Cullen Bunn and Will Sliney's corner of the Marvel Universe

In "Fearless Defenders," Bunn and Sliney have set Valkyrie and her allies -- bionically enhanced private investigator Misty Knight, former leader of the New Mutants Dani Moonstar, the resurrected Amazon queen Hippolyta AKA Warrior Woman and archeologist Dr. Annaabelle Riggs -- with the task of foiling LeFay's plans. In issue #4, their battle escalated as LeFay woke the Doom Maidens from their slumber.

In "Fearless Defenders" #4AU, the most recent issue of the series, Bunn and guest artist Phil Jimenez took a step back from the battle with the Doom Maidens for an issue that continues to move the series forward while taking a side trip into the alternate reality created by the current "Age of Ultron" event. The issue featured a number of revelations about Warrior Woman and LeFay, including the identities of LeFay's parents, who are two major Marvel villains. We spoke with Bunn about these revelations and his plans for the series.
