Heroes, beware of pep talks that begin akin to, “We owe you so much for the way you’ve protected us, fought on our behalf, and defended our cause. The great personal risks you’ve taken. It’s a debt we can never repay.” Guaranteed, this is where the reasoning spins toward, “Since we can’t, we’re not going to try. But we do have some terms we’ll be imposing.”
The psionic technopath codenamed Livewire has been such a savior. A good soldier. A mentor. But when her fellow psiots were singled out and their freedoms threatened by the very authority she served, she turned on her handlers and caused a nation-wide blackout. Her role officially changed from ‘hero’ to ‘enemy of the state’. Now she’s a fugitive, still committed to safeguarding those with powers like hers. Can she be a hero and a rebel?
Valiant intends to find out when they launch her first-ever solo title, Livewire #1, on December 19. The ongoing series from writer Vita Ayala and artists Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín will feature a stellar selection of covers by Adam Pollina, Harvey Tolibao, Paulina Ganucheau, and Doug Braithwaite. And those kindly Valiant folks have provided us with an exciting extended preview below…
