Armor Hunters

    Story arc »

    The ARMOR HUNTERS are coming! A relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the X-O armor and all like it – have found their final target. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar's incalculable destructive power... even if it means taking the Earth with it.

    Short summary describing this arc.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Armor Hunters is an 19-issues crossover event featuring many of the Valiant characters and focusing on a group of alien warriors in pursuit of all powered armor, like the X-O Manowar Armor suit, with only one goal - to destroy it and its bearer!


    The main Armor Hunters team consists of squad leader Primary Reebo and members Helix (a digital being in physical form), Quartz (the muscle), Lilt (the adviser), GIN_GR (a giant robot that serves as operation center and spaceship), and formerly Mopp (the field technician). Not part of the actual team nonetheless trying to find the X-O armor on its own is the vicious alien humanoid Malgam, once host to the armor himself he is desperate to find and bond with it again.
