Aric of Dacia, better known as X-O Manowar, has lost his two biggest advantages over the UNITY team and the world at large. UNITY’s ace-in-the-hole member LiveWire (she’s Harada’s right hand woman, and a powerful Harbinger with the ability to control machines and technology) has sent Aric’s massive alien warship plummeting from earths upper atmosphere, slamming it into the oceans depths. Not only that, Live Wire has wrested control of the X-O Manowar armor from Aric, leaving him vulnerable and defenseless to UNITY’s attack. Well, not completely defenseless; Aric has an army of Visigoths, armed with alien weaponary at his back. But when X-O LiveWire has to leave her teammates on the sinking spaceship to deal with a Russian nuke ( Russia has a biiiig problem with X-O carving out a kingdom on their front doorstep ), it’s up to Toyo Harada, Ninjak and the Eternal Warrior to taken down Aric and his barbarians!

Which leads to one of my now all time favorite comic book quotes, by Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior to Aric:

” If you won’t bend your knee… Then I will take your head ”

Will Aric’s army survive an attack by an immortal warrior, a super spy ninja, and the world’s most powerful psiot? Can LiveWire maintain control of the X-O armor long enough to stop that nuke? Will Aric get control of the armor back? Find out in Unity #3 , Valiant’s premiere team book, that’s changing the face of real world modern superheroics!

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
