When Aric of Dacia took over a nation with the X-O Manowar armor, it was only a matter of time before his sovereignty was challenged by another power — and on November 13, writer Matt Kindt and artist Doug Braithwaite assemble the only team that can take him down in “Unity” #1.
Valiant Entertainment has provided CBR with an exclusive trailer recapping the events of Robert Venditti’s “X-O Manowar” that led to Toyo Harada assembling Livewire, Eternal Warrior and Ninjak to become a strike force designed to take down Aric of Dacia following his takeover of Romania.
“I’m getting to write every great Valiant character instead of one book; instead of writing ‘X-O’ or ‘Harbinger’ — which are already taken over and awesome — I now get to use them all,” Kindt told CBR in August. “In a way, I get to create the best book. [Laughs] It’s historic too in that I grew up with these characters. Back in the ’90s I was reading Valiant, so I’ve always loved the universe. Getting to do a team book, which has never happened with the publisher, was something I wanted to be a part of. It’s like writing “Justice League” #1, but back in the day ‘Justice League’ #1. It’s not a relaunch — it’s something that’s never happened and I’m excited about it.”
