Valiant Launches All-New Threat for X-O Manowar


X-O Manowar has shown a tendency to handle any opponent thrown his way. Dealing with all those opponents leaves a hero winded and thirsting for more. This November, Valiant will gladly oblige with Enter: Armorines, a new three-part story arc starting in X-O Manowar #30 from Robert Venditti and Diego Bernard. X-O Manowar fires the first shot in an all-or-nothing battle against a ruthless new fighting force – codename: ARMORINES – fixated on disarming the world's most powerful weapon and eliminating Aric of Dacia once and for all.

"The Armorines will present challenges to [X-O Manowar] that he has not faced before, challenges we have not seen in the Valiant Universe yet," writer Robert Venditti told Comic Book Resources. "It is going to be Earth-born, but it's a lot of things he hasn't faced, and in many ways, it's Aric coming from where he comes from, dealing with things that are completely foreign to him. That's the way you attack Aric -- you don't necessarily attack the armor, you attack the person inside it. What are his limitations?"

London was attacked… Moscow was attacked… Rome was attacked…and the world blames X-O Manowar. As an international firestorm pushes the world toward war, it's come down to the bleeding-edge paramilitary unit known as the Armorines to neutralize the most powerful weapon in existence. The Manhattan Project started with a single atom – and, soon, the world will discover once again that biggest problems have small solutions! Enter: Armorines.

Full press release below.
