This summer, Livewire finally gets her own series in the upcoming Secret Weapons series from Valiant Comics. Livewire aka Amanda McKee has the ability to talk to and control machinery–any machinery. She’s also smart, tough, determined, and downright awesome. In Eric Heisserer and Raul Allen’s upcoming series, she’s also in charge–of an oddball group of psiots whose powers were deemed too useless for anyone else’s secret agenda. Now, though, these rejects are wanted to fight a new threat, and Livewire is going to show them how.
Secret Weapons #1 of 4 comes out June 28, 2017.

Synopsis for Secret Weapons
The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…
