Harbinger Wars 2 Prelude #1 (Valiant)
It begins. The government goes too far and while keeping LiveWire distracted, they go after LiveWire’s Secret Weapon psiots. However, a small power fluctuation allows LiveWire the ability to break the psiot dampening in the building she is in and she learns of the threat to her the Secret Weapons. This is the first shot fired and it pushes LiveWire into the position making a massive move back. In this case, killing all of the electronics in the country. As in EVERYTHING!!! Now the stage is set for the Harbinger Wars 2.
LiveWire is my favorite female comic book character. I love her story. I love that she started out as a somewhat side character and her story naturally progressed to the point where she is one of the most powerful characters in the Valiant Universe. I know that this HW2 is going to put LiveWire and Ninjak on opposite sides (they’re in a relationship) and this is going to be intense when it plays out.
Of special note in this issue, LiveWire is “hearing” everything done through technology and remember in Superman Returns when Superman is hearing everything and trying to tone out all of the voices, she is somewhat in the same boat but I think she is really “hearing” and “seeing” even more. I love the way this “over stimulation” plays out in this issue. I highly recommend jumping on this massive event NOW!!!

This is a great issue. Spawn is playing the game of being powerless and mute, moving the pieces on the board to achieve his ends. What are those ends? We the reader don’t really know yet but it works. The art is still terrifying and beautiful to behold. I’m loving this journey that Spawn is now on. I’m all in on this ride!!!
