ARE YOU DIFFERENT…? So begins the classified ad placed in newspapers worldwide by the Harbinger Foundation. Thousands of troubled young people respond every day. Most are merely suffering the pain, anxiety and alienation of growing up. A few, however, are different, indeed– harbingers of a new age, possessors of powers of the mind that can be awakened, developed, honed…and used. Harbinger founder Toyo Harada intends to change the world for the better– even if it occasionally takes extreme measures. To make an omelet, one must break eggs…. When Peter Stanchek, a harbinger of frightening potential rebels, he and the ragtag renegades he recruits find themselves at war against Harada and his Eggbreakers. Extreme measures taken by both sides sometimes beg the question who is worse more than who is right.
Aric, a fifth century Visigoth barbarian, is captured by aliens and enslaved aboard their starship. A fellow prisoner carves a map into his hand that leads to the aliens’ ultimate weapon– the X-O Manowar armor. Aric fights his way to the sentient armor and escapes back to Earth with it only to find that 1600 years have passed. He is now the most primitive man on the planet, yet he wields the most technologically advanced weapon in existence! As the aliens begin their invasion of Earth, Aric struggles to adapt to his new home– the modern world– and prepare for the battle where he can finally seek vengeance against his inhuman captors!
Armstrong is a 10,000-year-old libertine who may be as strong as a battalion, but abandoned idealism millennia ago. Now he spends his days drinking, carousing and telling tales of his outrageous adventures throughout history to anyone who will listen– that is, when he’s not on the run from an ancient cult whose bumbling agents have been hunting him for two thousand years. But Armstrong counts as the worst day of all his days the one when Archer turned up and decided that they were partners– a team chosen by fate to save the world.
