Valiant is proud to present your first lettered look inside SECRET WEAPONS #2 – the next astonishing chapter of the hotly anticipated limited series from Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Patricia Martin (NINJAK)! On July 19th, the Valiant Universe’s supremely powerful technopath, Livewire, and her newfound team of heroes-in-training begin their journey toward Valiant’s seismic 2018 event as THE ROAD TO HARBINGER WARS 2 reaches the point of no return! Determined to succeed where the Harbinger Foundation failed, Livewire has brought together a new band of psiots defined by their arcane and at-times cryptic abilities…and, together, they’ll show the world just how powerful a secret weapon can be!
The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…
