Halo 5 Guardians Story Shaping up; Didact Has Six Composers

We know how the Halo comic book is somehow supposed to be linked with the setting of Halo 5 Guardians, and in the past, chunks of information have flown out of it too.

For instance, we reported that the death of Didact in Halo 4 had not been confirmed. Now, the comic is building up on that.

According to a preview of the latest Halo comic book, which will be building a bridge between Halo 4 and Halo 5, Didact surely is alive and is going to return into the universe with full force. The preview also talks about another looming fear: Didact now has hold over as many as six Composer devices.

While that is all we have been told by the new Halo comic so far, some of us might not be highly informed about the intricate details of the Halo universe – especially those who have only known the game series and not the comics.

While we suggest that you delve into the world of Halo’s books, comics and may be the web series as well, here’s a roundup on who Didact really is and what is a Composer device.

In Halo 4, Didact was the main antagonist who led the Forerunners. He is a giant alien supreme commander of the Forerunner military that once was, and leads the remains now against the UNSC.

In the game, he attempted to destroy the human race using the Composer device which is a piece of Forerunner technology that was used in the Forerunner-Flood War to control Flood and it can bridge organic life with technology. The device has the power to wipe out humanity and the fact that Didact has six of them means only one thing: trouble!
