History

Newfound Power is a Grifter storyline published as part of The New 52. It's written by Rob Liefeld and Frank Tieri, with illustrations by Scott Clark and Marat Mychaels. This is the second and concluding arc on the rebooted Grifter series, following Nathan Edmondson's debut arc Most Wanted.

Synopsis

Grifter is skiing in the Swiss Alps when he's attacked by a tougher breed of Daemonites. He's rescued by Cheshire who explains that the earlier Daemonites he fought were scouts, and the new ones are warrior-class as they have decided to colonize Earth. Grifter is supposedly the "chosen one" meant to lead the resistance, and he's introduced to the other fighters including Deathblow.[1] Their mobile headquarters is ambushed and most of the men are killed, leading Grifter to suspect a traitor. Cheshire, Deathblow, and a soldier named Buck are the only survivors as Grifter uses telekinesis to wipe out their attackers. They make it safely to a cabin, where they're attacked by a villain named Synge who blows a hole through the wall.[2] Synge easily beats down all of them, until Grifter uses his telekinesis to collapse an entire forest on him. Cheshire shoots Grifter and Deathblow revealing herself as the traitor, then takes them both to Lord Helspont on his ship.[3] Helspont explains that he hates the Daemonites for imprisoning him, and asks Grifter to join him in destroying them. Grifter explains that he knew Cheshire was a traitor and wanted to get caught, then attacks Helspont with a psychic blast. Deathblow and Grifter escape while seemingly blowing up the ship, but Helspont and his ship survive revealing that this was a ruse to learn about his enemy.[4]
