As part of this new title's launch Valiant has randomly inserted into the print run of SECRET WEAPONS #1's Cover A, the SECRET WEAPONS #1 SECRET EDITION which is nearly the same as the regular Cover A except for some very subtle differences. Readers that manage to obtain the randomly distributed SECRET WEAPONS #1 SECRET EDITION are then challenged to decode the huge secret at the heart of this important new series which also uncovers the long term importance of this landmark title.
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 Rexo 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.
