After the close of the megaton opening act, Valiant’s Unity moves onto their next big challenge- Ninjak’s arch-nemesis Dr. Silk.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. First came UNITY… Now meet WEBNET! Coming off of the earth-shattering repercussions of their first mission, Ninjak is leading the newly formed Unity team right back into the trenches to face the Valiant Universe’s next colossal threat – the enigmatic Dr. Silk and the radical terror cell known as WEBNET! With the fate of untold millions on the line, can this team of cutthroat heroes uncover Silk’s endgame – and his connection to Ninjak’s shadowy past – before a global pandemic wipes humanity off the map? From the English countryside to the jungles of Taiwan, MI-6’s most lethal intelligence operative and his ruthless team of egotists, immortals and malcontents are taking their fight global to stop WEBNET in its path.
Not the happiest of teams is it? As super-teams go, Unity is far from cohesive, but that’s probably par for the course when you have a bunch of the most powerful members of the Valiant U trying to get along for the common good.
I have add here that this is really fast-becoming a great way for Valiant to introduce (or re-introduce) a bunch of its biggest heroes and villains that have yet to see the light of day here in the rebooted Valiant Universe. Take issue #5 here for example; not only do we get even more of Ninjak’s back-story, but we also get to see one of his biggest baddies in action with the villainous Dr. Silk and his cabal. It’s cool stuff that I hope the book will continue on with.
Oh and also, that Clayton Crain cover? Gorgeous.
Check out Unity #5 when it hits the stands this coming March from Valiant Comics with art by Clayton Crain, story by Matt Kindt and alt cover work by Mico Suayan, Philip Tan, Raul Allen, Diego Bernard and a special ‘sketch’ by Kindt.
