Livewire #1

Valiant is kicking off a new title on December 19th. It will follow one of their most prominent characters in her first solo title. Livewire is one of the most powerful psiots on earth and she’s taken it upon herself to protect other psiots. When it became clear the US government wanted to wipe out all psiots, considering them a danger to society, Livewire snapped and took down all US electronics, including their satellites.

What she felt she had to do to protect psiots, especially the young people she’d come to mentor (check out the mini series Secret Weapons to learn more), ended up hurting lots of innocent people. She must now deal with the fact that not only is she the most wanted being on earth, she’s also caused pain and suffering for millions.

The first issue is her attempt to reconnect with her mentees from the Secret Weapons series only to find out that they are as appalled by her actions as the rest of the country. They fear what she’s done and what she might still do. The issue ends with a cliffhanger and I’m excited to see how this story continues to develop.
