BLOOD_024_VARIANT_GRACEA superhuman arms race during the cold war, is a common theme across the varied Comic Universes. Captain America and the Red Guardian in Marvel, which led to Wolverine, Omega Red and Phantomex and other Weapon Plus Alumni, it was covered in all the classic silver age DC stories, and visited in detail by James Robinson and Paul Smith in Golden Age. And no one has covered it more completely than Ellis during his StormWatch, Authority, Planetary runs, and culminated the idea in SuperGods from Avatar.

Now it’s Valiant’s turn.

In the year 2000, a  supersoldier experiment from a  cold-war era Soviet secret base has been unleashed, threatening to spread throughout the Russian Federation. With some back room political deals, Bloodshot is sent in by Project Rising Spirit, to do what he does best: Contain the area and kill everything!
But similarities to his Russian counterpart bring up questions of Bloodshot’s own origin, and the path to his self discovery is seeded in this flashback to Bloodshot’s bloody past.  Take a look into Valiant’s past, while Bloodshot establishes his future in the aftermath of the Armor Hunters event!

About Author

Trained by the Four-Color wizard, Hagan, in all things comic-booky, young Robert took to the streets of New York, dragging his large bespectacled head from comic shop to comic shop, absorbing, learning… knowing…. Until a very delayed pubescent spurt in his early thirties when the tumescent lump of comic knowledge burst forth, rupturing into nonsensical rants about Jack Kirby, superhero related tattoos, questionable cosplay activities, worshiping Jim Starlin as a prophet, and courting the young lady working in his local comic shop. Now he is just mad…roaming the streets late at night while walking his dog, plotting and preparing to unleash more comic-booky goodness on an unsuspecting world. He likes bread. The food. He thinks the band is crap. *Hey wanna freak Bob out? Come follow him on twitter (@dyrewolf1218), he's totally new to it and suspects it may be black magic...* - Chuck the editor monkey
