A daring new superhero saga from New York Times best-selling creator Joshua Dysart – writer of of the Harvey-Award nominated series HARBINGER – and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice)! Toyo Harada is the most dangerous human being on the planet. Imbued with incredible powers of the mind, he has spent his life guiding humanity from the shadows. But today he is a wanted man. His powers are public knowledge, his allies have turned to enemies, and he is hunted by every government on the planet. Instead of surrendering, Harada has one last unthinkable gambit to play: to achieve more, faster, and with less, he will build a coalition of the powerful, the unscrupulous and the insane. No longer content to demand a better future, he will recruit a violent legion from the darkest corners of the Earth to fight for it. The battle for utopia begins now.

Join New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Flash) and rising star Rafa Sandoval (X-Men: Legacy) for this special done-in-one jumping-on point issue – revisiting a mystery ripped from the pages of X-O Manowar #1!
