INVICTUS: OUTRAGE #1 preview
INVICTUS: OUTRAGE #1
Our story opens in 2006 as the teenage superhero, Willa Yancey—still known as Invictus—steps up to fill the gap left by the Decimation, when Earth lost more than one out of every ten superheroes battling the alien menace of the Skerlings. None of the world’s supervillains were sacrificed. Now New Acadia is facing an emerging threat. Savage beast-men are prowling the back streets and the wooded paths of Great Meadow Park. Lycanthropes? Mutants? Where are they coming from? Who or what is behind them?
In the aftermath of “I Want You” (G-Men United #1), modern-day Willa continues the tale she began in “Who is Outrage?” from G-Men United #2. Join Agent Kirby in learning the origin of New Acadia’s strongest meta-human—Outrage—as she and her roommate Dena Wolf seek to solve the mystery of the Beast-Men of New Acadia.
