X-O Manowar

    (Valiant, 1992-1996, 2008)
™ and ©1993 Voyager Communications, Inc.

X-O Manowar is the name of the most powerful of a line of alien armors. Although the X-O Commando and other armors are formidable indeed, the wearer of the X-O Manowar becomes one of the most powerful beings in the universe. But there’s more: the X-O Manowar armor is more than mere technology—it’s actually alive…sentient.

In the Valiant universe, connections between characters over vast periods of time are almost common. As such, it should not be entirely surprising that the futuristic X-O Manowar armor is worn by a barbarian named Aric, who heads a corporation in 1990s America. His adventures cover similar ground, from star-spanning battles with Magnus and Solar to hunting dinosaurs with fellow warrior Turok.
