Following a cryptic teaser earlier this week, Marvel has announced Asgardians of the Galaxy, a new series starting in September.

The series creates a new team of Asgardian heroes to protect the Marvel Universe from intergalactic threats and is written by Cullen Bunn with art by Matteo Lolli.

The line-up of the team, seen here, includes Angela, Valkyrie, Thunderstrike, Throg, Skurge, and the Destroyer (whose pilot remains a mystery). 

Here's how Marvel describes the characters:

"ANGELA, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor.
 
The hotheaded VALKYRIE – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs.
 
SKURGE the EXECUTIONER, freshly returned from Hel.
 
THROG, the mightiest frog of thunder.
 
Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero THUNDERSTRIKE.
 
And the DESTROYER, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown."
