Youngblood Genesis

 YOUV   (Arcade, 2003)

™ and © 2003 Ripley Inc.

The Knightstrike special operations team has become a political liability due to the release of an embarrassing videotape detailing the extra-legal, ultra-violent nature of their missions. But Director Graves is unconcerned about the career-ending ramifications that his colleagues assume are certain. Graves’ attention has been concentrated on a spacecraft that crashed recently outside of Washington. There were two surviving occupants and Graves has appropriated them for his new team. All that is necessary is to have the president realize the necessity of a replacement for Knightstrike… and of course a catchy name.

This title is the fourth iteration of Rob Liefeld’s superhero team that launched Image Comics in 1992. Since that time the team has changed and been recast several times. This version from Arcade Comics serves as a companion title to Youngblood: Bloodsport.
