With Thanos’ hordes invading Earth, the Fearless Defenders live up to their name in an INFINITY tie-in like no other! Misty kicked ass in Valkyrie’s world, now it’s time to see how Valkyrie fares in Misty’s.
And when a gifted young woman discovers she possesses terrifying powers, will this new hero join the ranks of the Defenders?
Then, secrets of Hippolyta’s resurrection are revealed on a field trip to New Amazonia as the team makes a stand against Caroline LeFay’s apocalyptic Doom Maidens!
Plus: Valkyrie and Annabelle’s complicated relationship becomes even more perplexing and problematic, and a new (cosmically awesome) character joins the team! Guest-starring Elsa Bloodstone, Venom, Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, Hercules, Werewolf By Night and more!

Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up
Confidentiality! Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s OK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
Find the Positive It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
Ouch/Oops If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
You Speak for Yourself We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
Yield the Floor Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
