In the witch kingdom Hyalin, the strength of your magic is determined by the length of your hair. Those that are strong enough are conscripted by the Witch Guard, who enforce the law in peacetime and protect the land during war. However, those with hair judged too long are pronounced enemies of the kingdom, and annihilated. This is called a witch burning. The young witch Nyneve is haunted by the death of her father and the threat the Witch Guard poses to her own life. When conscription rolls around, Nyneve has a choice to make; join the institution complicit in her father’s death, or stand up for her ideals? Witchy by Ariel Slamet Ries is in comic shops 9/4 and in bookstores 9/17 from Roar, the YA imprint of Lion Forge!

It’s the 7th day of our #SevenDays of #CatalystPrime character spotlights! We’ve saved our leading lady and plasma-fusion powerhouse Val aka SUMMIT for last! Val Resnick-Baker was presumed to be the only survivor of the Icarus2 mission and because of this, she suffers with survivor’s guilt as she tries to deal with the death of her girlfriend and her crew. When the pressure gets too much, Val release her frustrations and discovers her newfound enhancement of plasma fusion. With some help from her ex-husband JB and his team of MIT student geniuses, Val develops the identity of SUMMIT. Val runs into trouble when Silicon Valley startup MAXGENZ steals both her and Foresight’s tech to create their own super suits to sell on the mass market. In the process of getting their technology back, Val loses her powers. When Val’s framed by government agent Wald, JB blows up their MIT lab in order to let Val escape. On the run, Val finds herself alone without her friends or powers. Along the way she meets the dangerously attractive Dani whose past is as mysterious as her motives. Luckily, right as the government catches up with Val and her unconventional team at the Museum of UFOs and Alien Life, Val finds an artifact that gives her her powers back. After saving J.B. and Fiona from Agent Wald, Val has a new take on life and hopes Dani will come with her to seek a fresh start…but Dani is an agent-for-hire and domestic life isn't for her. At least, not yet. #Teaser When a fellow hero falls in #SevenDays , Val is forced to step up as a leader.

Woot woot it’s the weekend but we’re still not done with #SevenDays of #CatalystPrime character spotlights! We’re feeling pretty indestructible this Saturday and so is our hero of the day—QUINCREDIBLE! Quinton West is a 15-year-old high school sophomore and a big fan of the supers who have emerged post-event. He dreams of being a symbol for his community like NOBLE. After the Event, Quin finds that he can no longer be physically hurt or injured…but he’s just a scrappy 120-pound kid and every bully’s punching bag. Without the muscle to fight back, what could he possibly do? But Quin’s got a superpower that a didn’t take a meteor to develop—his wits. With a little bit of creative thinking and a little bit of mentorship from local hero Glow, Quin finds he can outsmart the opposition. The world, and especially New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, is hurting and Quin wants to help stop that. He’s one superhero who wears his heart on his sleeve. Though Quin may wish his heart wasn’t always in the game so much (such as with his unrequited crush Brittany), he’s got a great support system in his family #Teaser - #SevenDays will test everything Quin’s made of—his heart, his altruism, and his new enhancements.

Today on day 5 of #SevenDays of #CatalystPrime character highlights is the British astronaut Alistair Meath aka KINO! After the Icarus2 mission to destroy the meteor headed for earth, Meath went missing and was presumed dead but his body was actually stolen by the mad scientist Aturo Assante who experimented on Meath to test the limits of his enhanced abilities (in KINO’s case, kinetic energy). Stuck within the simulations in his mind, Meath begins to suspect that his current situation isn’t real. When Meath remembers his life before KINO, he breaks out of his mental prison and destroys Aturo Assante’s lab as he escapes. Finding his powers and memories of the lab too much to bear, Meath transfers his powers and memories to a homeless man named Aaron before going back to his wife Patricia and his 2 children. Aaron takes on the identity of Meath but believes that his identical stranger has taken over his life and is living in his house with his family. When Aaron as KINO gets out of control, Meath is forced to remember his traumatic past and reclaim his powers. With the memories of his past back, Meath has to deal with the consequences of his actions as his marriage takes a hit and he becomes depressed and used as a political symbol by Prime Minister Spode. In #SevenDays we will see a KINO who has grown from his mistakes, refusing to let even a four-legged friend die when he can prevent it #Teaser

Happy day 4 of #SevenDays of #CatalystPrime character spotlights! Today we’re showing some love to best friends Jonah and Kayla from SUPERB! Jonah Watkins is a 16-year-old teen with Down Syndrome living in Youngstown Ohio. He lost his mother during The Event but gained enhanced abilities such as optic rays and takes on the identity of his favorite comic book hero, COSMOSIS. Kayla Tate is Jonah’s childhood best friend. She’s always been protective of Jonah, especially when others try to bully him for being different. Though she is hesitant to admit it, Kayla also became enhanced with athletic ability (increased strength, durability, and jumping abilities) after stealing a piece of meteor from her parents’ work at Foresight Lab. Jonah gives her the alias AMINA after her favorite woman warrior. When Foresight takes Kayla and Jonah’s parents captive, Jonah, Kayla, and their inventor friend Abbie form a plan to break into Foresight HQ for a rescue mission. Things don’t go as planned and when Jonah returns to free the remaining captives, he gets caught and experimented on in the process. Kayla’s on the case to take down Foresight but gets led astray by her new crush, Cipher, who ends up betraying her. Jonah’s relationships on the other hand bloom as he explores his feelings for Key, a non-binary teen he helped save from Foresight. #Teaser -- #SevenDays will see our teen heroes team up as Amina and Cosmosis meet Quincredible.

It's day 3 of #SevenDays of #CatalystPrime characters and today is a double-feature! First up is ASTONISHER. Magnus Attarian, aka ASTONISHER is a rich playboy and heir to the ATISAT Corporation. In hopes of becoming a big hero, Magnus used his family’s tech to fly up and stop the meteor—but failed big time. Now, he has shards of the meteor embedded deep in his brain.The meteor shards in Magnus’s brain allow him to enter into the minds of the enhanced who have lost control of their newfound powers. Once inside the “astral plane,” Magnus can remove or depower their abilities. Magnus’s family life is messy—his mom tries to control him and his brother tries to kill him as part of a long-time retribution for Magnus stealing and taking credit for his ideas. Magnus has long walked the line between right and wrong and with the addition of his powers, he becomes amoral and the line becomes more and more hazy. #Teaser -Magnus has been seeing versions of Khrelan in his parasitic form for a while now, he just hasn’t realized who it is yet.

Today’s #CatalystPrime character spotlight goes out to ACCELL! Accell aka Daniel Dos Santos gained his powers of super speed by pocketing a piece of meteor rock that slowly gave him powers from exposure. Unlike many heroes, Daniel’s power doesn’t protect him from injury. Though he doesn’t feel the damage in the moment, as soon as the adrenaline wears off, his injuries catch up to him. Luckily, he can speed up the healing process. One problem Daniel can’t outrun however, is the side effects of “The Stream” – the alternate dimension he enters when he uses his power. If he keeps running, he could end up permanently in The Stream with no way out. Dealing with your body disintegrating from your power is all the harder when you’re trying to protect L.A. from a growing mob presence in the form of George Hayes and Mr Glazz, not to mention your ex-girlfriend turned mob-boss… (yeah, that’s a whole story). Daniel prides himself on being twenty-years young but the events that happen in #SevenDays , will help Daniel grow in maturity and will spark significant changes in his character. #teaser

Everyday this week we’re highlighting characters from #CatalystPrime #SevenDays and today we’re looking at NOBLE! Noble aka David Powell was one of the original Foresight astronauts sent to destroy the asteroid that threatened Earth’s survival. During “The Event,” David gains the power of tactile telekinesis (enabling him to fly, create shields, and counter attacks), but loses his memory. Lucky for David, his wife Astrid Allen-Powell, former Foresight agent and one unstoppable un-enhanced woman, refuses to give up on finding him. When they reunite, it’s 🔥. At his core, David is a father and a husband, who is willing to sacrifice himself for the good of his family. However, he also feels an intense responsibility to the word so in Vol. 3, we see him begin his public life as the hero NOBLE. Noble’s impact as a public hero is felt around the world, but hits home in New Orleans with a teen named Quinton West, the soon-to-become QUINCREDIBLE. Noble's global impact will continue and explode during #SevenDays when confronted with Khrelan and his armies. But not in the way people may expect...
