The publisher describes the event as:

When Aric of Dacia returned to Earth with the stolen X-O Manowar armor of an alien race, he thought he finally found a weapon to guard the peace and kingdom he’d struggled so long to secure. But now, a relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the armor and all like it – have found their final target. The ARMOR HUNTERS are coming. They will hunt. They will trap. They will kill. And they will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

After launching in the limited series, "Armor Hunters" will continue first in "Unity" #8, by Matt Kindt and Diego Bernard, and "X-O Manowar" #26, by Venditti and Cary Nord, with all new story arcs, before drawing in more heroes from the Valiant Universe.

Fans can get their first look at "Armor Hunters" at this year's Free Comic Book Day on May 3, 2014 with the "Valiant: Armor Hunters FCBD 2014 Special," featuring a cover by J.G. Jones.

Purely speculation on this Examiner's part, but does this seem like the perfect introduction for The Armorines into the new Valiant Universe? Share your thoughts on "Armor Hunters" in the Comments section below.
