Harbingers, also known as Psiots, are a race of evolved superhumans with psionic powers in the Valiant Universe. The world's most powerful Harbinger is Toyo Harada, a Japanese businessman who runs the mysterious Harbinger Foundation. The Foundation recruits and trains Harbingers as part of Harada's private army. There are some who believe Harada is an evil megalomaniac, including teenager Peter Stanchek, the only Harbinger whose power rivals that of Harada. Stanchek, also known by the codename Sting, leads a group of young Harbingers called the Renegades against Harada. This group includes Charlene Dupre, a pyrokinetic codenamed Flamingo, Faith Herbert, an overweight flying nerd codenamed Zephyr, John Torkelson, a super-strong behemoth named Torque, and the regular human Kris Hathaway. They live their lives on the run while being constantly pursued by Harada's organization.


Harbinger is a Valiant Comics series created by writer Jim Shooter and artist David Lapham. It began publication in 1992 with the issue Harbinger #1. The original Harbinger series was published by Valiant Comics until 1995. Valiant was later bought out by Acclaim, who rebooted the series to make it more adaptable to video games. Acclaim published Harbinger: Acts of God by Jeof Vita and James Perham in 1998. The rights were eventually returned to Valiant Entertainment, who started a new Harbinger reboot written by Joshua Dysart in 2012.
