Invincible is an American comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, illustrated by Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, and published by Image Comics. Set in the Image Universe, Invincible follows the coming of age of superhero Mark Grayson / Invincible, a Viltrumite and first-born son of Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on Earth. The series began publication on January 22, 2003, concluding on February 14, 2018, with 144 issues. An animated television adaptation began streaming on Amazon Prime Video on March 25, 2021.

Plot synopsis

Mark Grayson is a normal high school senior with a normal part-time job whose father, Nolan Grayson, is an extraterrestrial of the planet Viltrum (with humanoid forms similar to Kryptonians) known as Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet. At age seventeen, Mark begins to display super powers as a result of his Viltrumite ancestry. According to Nolan, the Viltrumite race pioneers the entire cosmos on a mission of benevolence and enlightenment.

Initially the first three volumes focus on Mark as Invincible, who begins working as a superhero with his father acting as his mentor, and meeting other heroes (including Robot, Rex Splode, Dupli-Kate and Atom Eve). His exploits range from discovering that his physics teacher has been turning his students into human bombs, to foiling a plan by the Mauler Twins to make an army of robots. Meanwhile, Omni-Man is kidnapped by aliens and taken to another dimension. He returns after what seems to be only a few days but was actually eight months to him.

The story explores various arcs such as when Mark travels to alternate dimensions and when he fights Thragg to determine the fate of Earth.

Publication history

Ryan Ottley, Robert Kirkman, and Cory Walker at Lucca Comics & Games 2018

While Kirkman has been the sole writer of the series, Walker and Ottley have contributed the art. Walker cocreated the book and provided art from #1 to #7 as well as #127–132. Ottley assumed art duties with issue #8 and drew all other issues. Kirkman has provided back-up space for a few aspiring comic creators, most notably Benito Cereno and Nate Bellegarde. The series is known for its extreme graphic violence despite its colorful nature and visuals.

The series ended with issue #144, with Ryan Ottley "coming back to the book" for the final twelve-issue sequence. The double-sized final issue was released on February 14, 2018. In April 2022, it was announced that a Battle Beast story would be published in Skybound X #25, with Kirkman and Ottley reuniting for the story; it was published on July 20, 2022. In October 2022, it was announced that, in celebration of the series's 20th anniversary in 2023, its first issue would be getting a reprinted facsimile edition reprint and a deluxe edition reprint, compendiums 1-3 would be getting comic shop exclusive hardcover versions, and there would be a reprint of the series in a new 6"x9" graphic novel format with new covers from Cory Walker and Dave McCaig, an Invincible Universe compendium, and a secret announcement in January 2023 (which was later revealed to be a teaser for season two of the animated show).

Characters

Grayson family

  • Mark Grayson: A 17-year-old high school student and a Viltrumite/human hybrid who becomes the superhero Invincible.
  • Nolan Grayson: Mark's father, Debbie's husband, and formerly the greatest superhero of Earth known as Omni-Man. He was originally sent by the Viltrimites to prepare the Earth to be conquered by them, but has a change of heart and begins showing compassion for others after nearly killing Mark after his secret is revealed. He works together with Mark, Allan, and his second son Oliver to combat the upcoming threat of the Viltrumites before he is crowned their new emperor when it's revealed he was the son of Emperor Argall.
  • Debbie Grayson: Mark's mother, Nolan's wife, and stepmother of Oliver Grayson.
  • Lord Argall: The former emperor of the Viltrumites and the father of Omni-Man and grandfather of Invincible and Oliver Grayson. He was revealed to have been killed by Thadeus which plunged Viltrum into a civil war.
  • Oliver Grayson: Mark's alien half-brother. The result of a relationship between Nolan and a member of the Thraxans named Andress, who have short life spans, growing at a rapidly increased rate compared to humans, though his father's DNA is slowing his aging over time. Although his mother is an insectoid, he resembles a Viltrumite/human with purple skin (later fades to pink). Andressa tells Mark to take Oliver to Earth, so that he can have a life with the people there, because their lifespan is longer than her people's and he gets adopted by Debbie. He first takes the sobriquet of Kid Omni-Man and then Young Omni-Man as he attempts to rehabilitate the memory of Omni-Man in the general public. Kid Omni-Man was later killed by Thragg.
  • Terra Grayson: The daughter of Atom Eve and Mark Grayson who would go on to become the third Invincible.
  • Markus Murphy: Also known as Marky, he is the son of Mark and Anissa after the latter raped the former. He would go on to become Kid Invincible.

Superheroes

  • Atom Eve: Samantha Eve Wilkins is a former classmate of Mark's and member of the Teen Team. Eve was created as a result of a government experiment to create super-beings. She can manipulate all matter, although a mental block has previously stopped her from creating and manipulating living things. Eventually, she and Mark realize their true feelings for each other and the pair start dating, fall in love, and get married after Eve gives birth to their daughter Terra. Eventually, she breaks her previous mental limits and her powers are bolstered to nigh-omnipotent levels, though she retains the discipline to not utilize it on other beings. Breaking her limits allows her to match Mark's Viltrumite powers.
  • Allen the Alien: Previously a Champion Evaluation Officer who worked for the Coalition of Planets, he traveled on a tight schedule and tested the skills of various powered heroes on each planet in order to determine if there is a suitable "champion" to defend that planet. He was later promoted to leader of the Coalition of Planets.
  • The Guardians of the Globe: A superhero team. Most of the original incarnation was brutally killed by Omni-Man causing another incarnation to be formed.
    • The Immortal: Apparently unkillable leader of the Guardians of the Globe and currently married to Dupli-Kate. It is suggested in flashbacks that one of his past identities was in fact Abraham Lincoln. In the present storyline, he is alive and was briefly beheaded by Omni-Man. The Mauler Twins dug up his body and reattached his head causing Immortal to live again. Revealed to rule the world as a tyrant in the far alternate future, where he is finally killed by Invincible at his own behest, Invincible prevents this in his own timeline by giving The Immortal the assistance of Robot's brain to rule with suggestive guidance.
    • Darkwing: A powerless member of the original Guardians of the Globe who was a parody of Batman. Killed by Omni-Man.
    • War Woman: A member of the original Guardians of the Globe with superhuman strength who was a parody of Wonder Woman. Killed by Omni-Man.
    • Aquarus: A fish-like member of the original Guardians of the Globe from Atlantis with aquakinesis who was a parody of Aquaman. Killed by Omni-Man.
    • Red Rush: Josef is a member of the original Guardians of the Globe with superhuman speed who was a parody of Flash. Killed by Omni-Man.
    • Green Ghost: A ghost-themed member of the original Guardians of the Globe who was a parody of Green Lantern. Killed by Omni-Man.
    • Martian Man: A shapeshifting member of the original Guardians of the Globe from Mars who was a parody of Martian Manhunter. Killed by Omni-Man.
    • Black Samson: Markus Grimshaw is an original member of the Guardians of the Globe with super-strength. Lost his powers (and with them, his Guardian status) for a while and wore a high-tech armor made by Art Rosenbaum before recovering them very abruptly. When Robot went rogue and started conquering the world, Black Samson is among the superheroes killed.
    • Rex Splode: Rex Sloan is a former member of the Teen Team and the Guardians of the Globe who can make objects explode by charging kinetic energy. He sacrificed himself to kill a hostile alternate-dimension Invincible.
    • Dupli-Kate: Kate Cha is a former member of the Teen Team and the Guardians of the Globe who can create an army of duplicates of herself. She eventually becomes the Immortal's wife and has children with him.
    • Bulletproof: Zandale Randolph is a superhero with energy absorption abilitiees. Initially turned down of membership in the Guardians of the Globe, Bulletproof did later join the team and is currently a member. On a related note, Bulletproof was one of the proposed names for the title character before the series saw print. Bulletproof later becomes the second Invincible after Mark temporarily loses his powers. He eventually betrays the Guardians to side with Robot when the latter took over the world. His face was scarred when Immortal activated a bomb in himself.
    • Shrinking Ray: Former member of the Guardians of the Globe who had the ability to shrink his body. He was consumed by Komodo Dragon of the Lizard League.
    • Monster Girl: Amanda is a girl who was cursed by a gypsy, now able to shapeshift into a large ogre-like creature with superhuman strength. A side effect is that with each change into Monster Girl, her normal self becomes younger physically. Her boyfriend, Robot, however found a cure for the curse, allowing her to develop normally.
    • Shapesmith: A Martian disguised as human astronaut Rus Livingston who uses his metamorphic powers to change his shape.
    • Darkwing II: Formerly Night Boy, the original Darkwing's sidekick, Benjamin Taylor continued Darkwing's legacy where he snapped and started killing criminals until Invincible apprehended him. A reformed Darkwing joined the Guardians of the Globe. He can teleport himself and others via the Shadow-verse using any shadow large enough to envelop him. Dragged by one of the extra-dimensional Invincibles into the Shadow-verse, this new Darkwing is later revealed to be alive and aged from the experience.
  • Fightmaster and Drop Kick: Two time-travelling martial arts masters who stole the Declaration of Independence, he is from the same era as the future insane Immortal.

Several of Kirkman's superheroes. Cover art by Ryan Ottley

In 2003 and 2004, Image and Robert Kirkman published several other superhero series: Tech Jacket pencilled in a manga style by E. J. Su (cancelled at #6), the 3-issue Capes Inc. series drawn by Mark Englert and three oneshots starring Brit, the first two with artwork from Tony Moore and the third with artwork by Cliff Rathburn.

In 2007, Brit was launched as an ongoing full-color series written by Bruce Brown, with artwork by Cliff Rathburn. The series was overseen and edited by Robert Kirkman. In late 2007, a two issue mini-series starring Atom Eve was released.

Tech Jacket was first collected as a digest-sized, black and white graphic novel and later reissued in regular sized, full color and a cover scheme similar to Kirkman's other trade paper backs. Capes was collected as a trade paperback in summer 2007, and the three Brit one-shots were colored by Val Staples and published as a collection in 2007, as well.

At first shown to barely coexist in the same universe, the characters have since been integrated into Invincible's book. Tech Jacket was an ongoing series that tied into Invincible #27, and the character has been seen in the background of various battles during the series. The characters from Capes have also been supporting characters seen mainly in large superhero battles Invincible participates in, and the series ran as a back-up in the Invincible book starting with #27. Brit has had an even less substantial role, appearing a couple of times in the aforementioned brawls (understandable considering that after the last book Brit was somewhat-retired). Brit later went on to become the leader of the Guardians of the Globe and was featured heavily in comic spin-offs Guarding the Globe and Invincible Universe. In The Astounding Wolf-Man, Art, Invincible's tailor, appeared, designing the title character's costume. Wolf-man has also appeared in Invincible #48 & 49.
