Based on what I read in the article Mary-Maria, could be like the new Erica Pierce.Erica will return evetually, I just know it
I thought it was interesting that the Boon was covered in VINES, hmmmm?
Just as Harbinger and Bloodshot are drawing closer together, I think there is connections between A&A and XO. I can even see there being a direct connection between the Boon and Shanhara.
Here is a way out there thought- What if the Boon is actually the wormhole where Erica Pierce was trapped at the end of Unity? What if she is the actual power behind the Boon and is the same Erica Pierce from VH1 only now existing in the VEI universe.
I don't know if she ever appeared in the Acclaim universe but if she did she would know how the V1 and V2 universes actually ended, maybe she even had something to do with it. And what if she learned some hard lessons from those expierences and now has a more altrustic and less maniacle out look not wishing to repeat the actions that ended the V1 and V2 universes?
The back story of the deaths of the prior 2 universes and what happens now that Erica is in VEI would make a great new "Unity" story. It would be like a big crazy crossover with themselves and give new meaning to the title "Unity". Not only would it put a nice bow on the old universe (instead of death by shitty sales and bad comics) it would also give VEI their new Solar and it would be Erica Pierce!
Something like that would be amazing and make all the Valiant books ever made seem like one universe with Erica as the link, VEI may not be able to use Solar but they could go nuts with Erica if they wanted to.
Ok, I'll go take my meds now...JK
