Invincible is an up and coming American comic book series written and illustrated by Robert Kirkman, penciled by Ryan Ottley and colored by Joe Ben Hurley. It's the future of the superhero genre and you may have already discovered the series. The main character, Iron Man, is a billionaire who owns the rights to a suit of armor known as the Mark IV armor. Every time someone in a real life gets injured, he calls upon the services of Tony Stark, who produces the next suit and calls on other superheroes to help him complete the mission.
In this new superhero comic book series, an orphan named Tony Starks arrives on the scene and becomes a part of the fight between Iron Man and the villain Dr. Cross. In the past, Tony has been a boy living with his father along with two other boys. When his father is killed, Tony is taken under the wing of a blond girl named Peppermint but he soon flees when she discovers that his father was a millionaire and he had a experimental serum that could transform into a new metal called titanium. Tony then joins the fight against Dr. Cross and becomes a member of the avenger group, The Invaders.
Invincible, Vol. 1: The Omni-Man (ISBN# 13013700) features the first story arc of the new superhero. The first few chapters are about the kid's search for his birth parents, how he was trained by terrorists, how he deals with grief and fear, and what led him to become a ruthless killing machine known as the Omni-Man. One of the biggest features of this comic is the incorporation of a mysterious, yet compelling, terrorist. The Omni-Man has a number of different motivations for doing what he does. It's not clear if he has any ulterior motives or simply uses his abilities to help the heroes. He shows up again, sometimes helping the team, sometimes hurting them, but always with an underlying motive to either protect humanity or bring terrible deeds to those who he deems guilty.
In the first issue, we meet Oliver Queen/OWL, who is a teenager who was thrown out of a research facility as a baby. He is a human boy who was bitten by a dinosaurus which left him with spider like powers. After being exposed to radiation that caused his powers to deteriorate, he was taken in by the resistance and given the name, Oliver Queen. However, while trying to get a band of resistance going, he encountered the terrorist known as the Nomad and fought him until the latter was killed.
After the war was over, Oliver Queen went back to the past where he tried to convince his future counterpart from becoming the supervillain, the omniscient, immortal Omni-Man. Eventually, after battling the dinosaurus again, Oliver Queen learned that Omniscience didn't exist and that Oliver was the new menace. Owing to this fact, the pair went on a mission to bring down the menace once and for all. However, during the course of their mission, they were captured along with the entirety of the United States armed forces.
When faced with the evil alien CECIL REANIMEN, the superheroes of the Justice League: America were no match for the creature. The alien sent his advanced robotic body onto the ground to attack the Justice League. However, the timely arrival of the original invincible Batman proved to be a turning point for the team. They were able to stop the alien menace, although they were no closer to winning the fight against CECIL REANIMEN than they were when they first confronted him on the ship.
The series concluded with an arc where the superheroes had to put up with the supervillains Talon and Viltrumite Prisonbreak. While battling each other, the two villains managed to steal the plans for the ultimate weapon, the Deathsmile. With this stolen Deathsmile, the villains were about to gain total victory when the arrival of Oliver Queen changed the tide of the battle. She engaged Talon and Viltrumite in a massive gun battle, which left them no choice but to surrender.
The final issue of Invincible Comic features some never before seen scenes from the set of the movie, as well as some deleted scenes. In addition, a never before released clip from the new superhero blockbuster, The Wolverine, was featured. This clip featured Dr. Rachel Summers, who played the role of the Savage Dragon in the comics, as well as Oliver Queen's daughter, Elizabeth Swann.
