Women in Marvel Spotlight on: Annabelle Riggs
Creator: Cullen Bunn
Dr. Annabelle Riggs first appeared in Fearless Defenders #1. An archaeologist specializing in studying ancient Asgardian Valkyries, her adventure began when Brunnhilde, a Valkyrie herself, rescued her from an undead horde Riggs accidentally summoned while on a dig. Although she is “merely” a normal human, Riggs became a member of the Fearless Defenders herself and a Vallkyrior in her own right. At the climax of a battle against the Doom Maidens Valkyrie transformed into the Maiden of Rage. It wasn’t until Valkyrie killed Riggs that she snapped out of her berserker trance. Valkyrie then traveled to Valhalla to bring Riggs back to life, albeit by sharing bodies with her. Annabelle Riggs last appeared in the finale of Fearless Defenders in issue #12 and has not been seen since.
