Do you want to wet your appetite for what is coming next in Harbinger?
After the events of Perfect Day, it looks like Toyo’s not gonna be in the best of shape, and he’s gonna have to give everybody a little look in to what he really is.
The most interesting thing to me about this preview is that it looks like we’re gonna see Ax introduced into the Valiant Universe. In the original Valiant, Ax was a jerk, and a slimeball, and the Harby kids did not end up getting along with him very well.
(Neither did X-O Manowar for that matter, who made Ax wear the yellow stain of fear)
Even more than this business with Harada, I’m interested to see what Ax is like in this version of the Valiant Universe, and if his real harbinger ability is still to make people strongly dislike him.

First Look: HARBINGER #20 Makes Headlines as HARADA Goes Public
As revealed today by the Associated Press, the landscape of the Valiant Universe is changing forever this January in the Harbinger #20 – the FIRST ISSUE of “RESISTANCE,” an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling creators Joshua Dysart (Harbinger Wars) and Clayton Henry (Suicide Squad)!
A whistleblower named Ax has just unleashed a secret with the potential to change the course of human history – superhumans walk among us…and billionaire philanthropist Toyo Harada may just be the most powerful of them all. As a “psiot” with nearly unlimited telekinetic potential, Harada and his secret Harbinger Foundation have shaped the world from the shadows for more than half a century, using their abilities to secretly control the balance of power. Treason. Conspiracy. Mass murder. Harada’s crimes are too numerous to count…but he won’t be held accountable by the laws of mortal men. Instead, he’s about to seize the opportunity to inflict his agenda on the governments of the world…and his former protege Peter Stanchek will soon become humanity’s only hope of nullifying a tyrant from whom no secret is safe.
The Valiant Universe discovers the true of face of its very first super-villain – and meets the Renegades who would oppose him – when “RESISTANCE” ushers in humanity’s next great upheaval beginning on January 15th in Harbinger #20!
