Eternal Warrior is a comic-book series, originally created by Jim Shooter and published by Valiant Comics. It was one of the cornerstones of Valiant's classic line and an early part of the relaunched line.
Thousands of years old, Gilad Anni-Padda is a master tactician and warrior, who uses these powers to defend the Earth with the aid of the Geomancer.
