So now Troy has shown his true colors… He’s been wanting to harness the power of the X-O Manowar armor all to himself. He had been searching for ways to extract Shanhara from being the sentience of the armor because she would not permit him to use it the way he wants… to obtain absolute power. Troy was able to create an X-O type armor of his own with the help of the nanite bots from outer space.
On top of all this, all across the world nanites from outer space have engulfed the planet, making the entire world look like a jungle. Aric had gone missing…but when he was found, Troy was there too…
The focus of this issue was Shanhara and her realization of Troy’s motives. It was a good setup for issue #9, which will be the conclusion of this current story arc.
As in the past reviews, I really enjoy the artwork. This issue gets a 4/5.
Definitely worth checking out.
