Valiant Villains (Updated)

Valiant has released two creepy villain-centric teasers, one for Archer & Armstrong, and another for Bloodshot!



We're a little unsettled by some of the things Valiant has planned for some upcoming issues of their relaunch.  These teasers focus on some villains appearing in Archer & Armstrong and Bloodshot. 

First, an image promoting Archer & Armstrong #2, featuring a bunch of weird white guys in animal masks standing around in a room that they could only gain entrance by speaking the password "Fidelio" at the door.

Second, the title character of Bloodshot is strung up and subdued, with all kinds of wires and cables and things sticking out of his head and connecting him to a bank of computers.  It's a little gross to think about that happening to a dude. 

But don't take our word for it.  Check out the images below, along with solicitation information for the two issues. 

Profits will rise, nations will fall.

UPDATED: Valiant has sent over a link to a story in the Associated Press about the One Percent, featuring some words with Fred Van Lente.
