Gregg Katzman, Marketing co-ordinator of Valiant Entertainment gets in touch, telling us that someone is ‘Stepping Out of the Shadows in 2020…’

The Return of Ninjak From #Valiant2020
Well, yes, that would be Ninjak, wouldn’t it?

Ninjak was created by Bob Layton, Mark Moretti and Joe Quesada in Bloodshot #6, back in 1993 as British aristocrat Colin King and in his ninja spy Ninjak identity in Bloodshot #7 as Ninjak before getting his own million-issue first issue launch in 1994.

A subsequent series in 1996 written by Kurt Busiek saw him recreated as  Denny Meechum, a teenager endowed with ancient ninja powers from a video game. The 2012 relaunch saw Ninjak appear in X-O Manowar getting his own series in 2015, written by Matt Kindt.

2017 saw another series looking at the character’s legacy history by Christos Gage and Tomas Giorello dubbed Ninja-K, which concluded at the end of 2018.

And for 2020? Who knows… But that is the glove and sword of Ninjak. And maybe a certain Bloodshot movie is govimg all sorts of Valiant characters a boost – Ninjak did first appear in the Bloodshot comic after all, even if they did have to drop that webseries Ninjak Vs The Valiant Universe…
