T-minus 2 days till UNITY...

The count down to Unity continues, with Toyo Harada!

Toyo is the CEO of Harada Global Conglomerates, and (possibly) the most powerful man on Earth. Toyo was introduced in VALIANT's Solar #3, as Doctor Solar sought help from Harbinger foundation. Toyo instead tried to destroy Solar, after seeing that he had destroyed the Universe (long story...). Although Toyo was only present on 3 pages, his influence quickly grew in leaps and bounds, as Jim Shooter made Toyo the chief adversary in their flagship title, Harbinger.

Check the links below for original art from Dino's illustrious gallery, featuring Toyo's first appearance in Solar 3.

(Harada's seeming death - like any good villain, he didn't stay down)

In 2012, VEI rebooted Harbinger by focusing on Toyo. The book especially highlighted him during the Harbinger War and Harbinger zero.

The links below have background on both the VEI and VH1 Toyo Harada
