Comments: Eric and Shanhara have an interesting conversation. Man and suit of armor talking like equals, as partners. Eric has changed. Eric is trying to be a good hero on Earth. He does not fit in that well. What do you expect a Visigoth from the past living in the present and he has the most powerful weapon in the universe.
Eric in Canada above the Hudson Bay finds a mysterious missile. Things are not going that well for Eric at being a hero the general public is against him. His intentions are good just with his level of power its hard to do things gently.
This is a way subdued Eric. He is not as aggressive as he used to be or as sure of himself. His character is watered down.
Eric while trying to stop a war has an encounter with something. The robot is impressive and very powerful looking.
The X-O Manowar is not illustrated all that well. It is not shown as the most powerful weapon in existence. It is shown but it is just there. Eric needs to be shown more as the warrior that he is and one tough one. he is a man with a suit of armor and not much more.
