The upcoming Ninjak VS The Valiant Universe web series features a number of icons from that brand, including X-O Manowar. Now, we’ve got our first look at what X-O Manowar looks like in live-action.
Valiant Entertainment CEO Dinesh Shamdasani revealed a first look at the character, portrayed by Derek Theler online via his Twitter feed:

Aside from the lack of a helmet – which may or may not be missing from this image for promotional purposes – this X-O Manowar costume is a very faithful design to the source material. Should Valiant be as committed to being true to the characters as they are to their designs, fans could be in for a real treat with this miniseries.
The series stars Michael Rowe as Ninjak, Jason David Frank as Bloodshot, John Morrison as the Eternal Warrior, Chantelle Barry as Roku, Kevin Porter as Armstrong, Ciera Foster as Livewire and Derek Theler as X-O Manowar. Here’s the official synopsis:
Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative, and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe.
