Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie in a modern interpretation of Norse mythology as portrayed in the movie Thor Ragnarok (2017). Valkyries were maidens whose role was to participate in battles and to decide which warriors should die in battle. They were said to ride horses from Asgard that was a sky location of gods down to the battlefield. Valkyries were also known for assisting the souls of fallen warriors to enter an afterlife land called Valhalla.

The image focuses more on the role of the Valkyrie as a participant in a battle rather than her role as a servant of the souls of the warriors.
