Review:  ★★★★☆

As we have seen of all of Valiant’s heroes over the last few weeks, we witness X-O Manowar’s final story.  Except in Aric’s case, we get to see the continuation of his story and legacy which isn’t really the end.  It is a fitting conclusion to his story, one that is much more uplifting than Bloodshot or Ninjak received.  Perhaps that reflects the lonely lives the other two have led while Aric is surrounded by his people and now wife.  We actually hope that one day we may see more of his successor as that direction was ripe with possibility.  Even if we never see more of that future, it is still good to know Aric will continue to be a hero long past the time his body gives out.
