Debuting in Valiant Comics in 1992, the Eternal Warrior is an immortal superhero who has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth.
With more than 2,000 superhero characters (and lifetime sales of more than 80 million copies), Valiant Entertainment owns the third largest library of superhero titles behind Marvel and DC, and the only one not currently owned by major conglomerate.
Representatives for Valiant declined to comment on the “Eternal Warrior” film in development.
