According to DC Comics, this fall Forever Evil will establish a new status quo in the DCU – "one in which there are no superheroes left and evil is on a soaring rise. Therefore, it’ll be up to Steve Trevor and the surviving agents of A.R.G.U.S. to step up to the challenge of combating these threats on their own. But how can regular human beings take on super-powered villains and expect to stand a fighting chance?"
"With their new armor, A.R.G.U.S. agents are given a shot at survival," writes DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras in the publisher's latest edition of 'What's New in the New 52.'
"Created using technology from Apokolips, this armor is incredibly experimental – and thus not fully understood by the scientists on Earth. This armor is specifically designed to protect regular citizens living within a superhero world. And while it of course doesn’t guarantee their survival, it evens out the playing field enough to allow A.R.G.U.S. agents to go into the frontlines of battle with a necessary boost of confidence. The new armor will make its debut on Steve Trevor in Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S. #1, which will also feature such notorious characters as Deathstroke and Cheetah."
Here's a look at artists Brett Booth and Philip Tan’s designs for the new armor.
