The Life And Times Of A Highschooler Turned Psiot – Secret Weapons #0 In January From Valiant

by Hannah Means Shannon

Valiant has announced that we’ll be getting a special one-shot in January set in the drama of their new Secret Weapons series. Secret Weapons #0 is set to be a “prelude” to the series we’ve been reading and will be written by Eric Heisserer and drawn by Adam Pollina (X-Force).

Occuring before the fall of the Harbinger Foundation, this one-shot will tell the origin and experiences of Nikki Finch, a psiot who was recruited and activated by Toyo Harada only to be cast away.

Valiant says:

Meet high school senior Nikki Finch… She’s a gifted athlete with an unusual set of medical ailments and high-aptitude test scores that have drawn the attention of an obscure and little-known NGO calling itself the Harbinger Foundation. With seemingly limitless resources at its disposal, the Harbinger Foundation has just offered Nikki a place in their newest class of recruits for a prestigious, but secretive, mission: to unlock her hidden potential via the invasive, dangerous and often deadly process known as “psiot activation.”

If they succeed, Nikki could become an extraordinary example of Toyo Harada’s vision for the future of post-human biological superiority. If they fail, she’ll likely die on the operating table…or be locked away for future study in the mysterious research facility only known as The Willows…

We’ll learn about Nikki’s origins when the #0 issue lands on January 3rd, 2017.

We have a substantial sneak peek at Pollina’s interior art on the book:
