Om Heavy Metal Magazine #262
From the beginning of time "superheroes" have lived amongst us in secret, hidden within fairy tales and between the pages of holy books? Thirteen of the greatest warriors who ever lived, from Achilles (AKILEZ) to Joan of Arc (J ARC) to Vlad the Impaler (VLAAD) share a mysterious connection and even more mysterious abilities. Here all the dark myths, fables, and legends are true. There is a Greek warrior with inhuman speed. There lurks a bat-like creature that glides over rooftops attacking from the Transylvanian darkness. There is a French peasant girl who sees the future and uses a strange apparatus to possess whole legions on the battlefield. There is a famed tank commander in World War 2 who has the ability to be two places at once in the middle of battle. These warriors communicate with each other across the centuries. Yet there must always be balance, when heroes are born their opposite also emerges. In this universe J ARC chooses not to burn at the stake. Camelot becomes a police state. An unknown dark force rebuffs the allies in World War II and D-Day is lost. These heroes bear a terrible burden. They have the power to alter the course of man. However they must first ask the deepest of questions. Who or what are they? Where did they came from? Why are they are here among us? And most profoundly, what is their purpose?
