This next-generation X-Men-esque storyline centers on superpowered teenager, Peter Stanchek. While skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Peter quickly realizes that he’s a psionically-charged “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. His first lesson? All power comes with a price.
The harbingers have not gone unnoticed. Respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger Toyo Harada is about to offer Peter the chance at the things for which the boy has always longed — family, inner peace, self-control — and induct him into the sprawling, secret network of conspiracy and subversion known as the Harbinger Foundation. Now Peter must make a decision that will shake the very foundations of the Valiant Universe.
Part of the five-picture deal with Sony Pictures, Harbinger is currently in development by DMG, Sony and Valiant.
The first Harbinger series was published by Valiant Comics beginning in 1992. It was originally written by Jim Shooter with illustrations by David Lapham. It concluded in 1995 after 42 issues and 2 Harbinger Files specials. The popularity of the series led to the creation of several spin-offs including Harbinger: Acts of God, Harbinger Wars, and Harbinger: Omegas.
