Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe #4 (of 4)

   This issue wraps up this Valiant series that is, somewhat oddly, not set in the Valiant Universe.

   Instead, Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe is set in the new cinematic world starring some familiar faces.

   It follows a blackmail effort against Ninjak, as he's forced to steal the Book of the Geomancer - which sets all the other heroes against him, including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, the Eternal Warrior, Archer, Armstrong and other former allies from Unity.

   So can he fight his friends (without killing them), save the innocents kidnapped by his deadly enemy, and somehow keep the book out of the hands of Master Darque?

   It's a tall order. 

   The story is quick and entertaining, though it feels just a bit constrained by the fact that it has to work in a real-world setting.

   Still, it's a fun warmup for the live action antics of these heroes.

Grade: B

I checked out their website and the plan for the movies is pretty ambitious. Looks good.
