Valiant’s “Divinity” Looks Downright Divine

Posted on December 5, 2014 at 10:02 am by Tyler Waterman

Since the return of Valiant in 2012, fans new and old have gotten constant reminders every Wednesday that Valiant is home to some of the best characters in comics. Whether you were reading the books back in the 90’s or not, no one can dispute that the cast Valiant brought back into the spotlight are just as outstanding now as they were then, if not more. However, it was only a matter of time until the new Valiant brought us a brand-new face to go with it, and from the looks of things, this is going to be an explosive introduction.

Introducing Divinity, one of the hot new books spinning out of the Valiant Next movement, and potentially the character who will have the biggest impact yet on the entire Valiant universe. A man sent well beyond the stars by the USSR during the Cold War, long since forgotten, has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the midst of the Australian Outback. He’s turned the Outback into an oasis; time and space are at his beck and call; the particles that make up all life seem to be his playthings; and he’s returned to a world where the government and country he gave everything for no longer exists.

Divinity #1 hits shelves February 11th, 2015, and frankly it just can’t come fast enough. With Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine at the helm, the quality of the book is guaranteed. Even better, Divinity #1 will be one of the books getting the Valiant Prestige treatment announced by Valiant a few days back; as if we needed another reason to be excited!

Huge changes are coming for the Valiant Universe, and while no one knows what’s in store, there’s no doubt that Divinity will be at the forefront. Don’t miss your chance to have ringside seats when the newest face in the Valiant Universe comes calling!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY #1 (of 4) – the new, prestige format VALIANT NEXT limited series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (THE VALIANT,Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis)! On February 11th, don’t miss the first appearance of Valiant’s first major new character as DIVINITY descends on planet Earth!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent a man farther into the cosmos than anyone has gone before or since. Lost in the stars, he encountered something unknown. Something that…changed him.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity – one who turned the scorched desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. Earth is about to meet a new god. And he’s a communist.

How long can it be before the first confrontation between mankind and DIVINITY begins?
