I'm a Member of Guardians of the Globe

Posted by inferiorego (24714 posts) - - Show Bio
Day after day after day after day after day we've seen new members of Avengers Academy, some of which look cool, and others of which look lame. Thankfully, Image has a sense of humor about this and presents to all of us Guardians of the Globe! Here we have what looks like to be Invincible in his old costume saying "I've never been much of a team player." Invincible is one of those books I never got to read, but it's on the top of my "to-do list." Robert Kirkman's writing is a lot of fun.    
So what are Guardians of the Globe? I'm assuming it's a team of heroes from that Image universe, sans any sort of academy, or anyone "wanting respect, but not needing your pity." Anyway, it's nice to see a new book poking fun at the new Marvel ads which had been in our faces for a few weeks now.
 
What do you think this book will be about? Will you pick it up?

Well this image just made my day ... in a bad day, maybe Invincible should join the Avengers.

On another note, is Invincible going back to his old costume?

Why?! When will this stop? I don't even read any of these books. And I don't want to purely because they keep shoving it down our throats.

For reference, Guardians of the Globe is basically Kirkman's response to the Justice League/Avengers, basically they're the major league team in his universe/Image's universe. Omni-Man, Invincible's father used to be a member, I'm sure they made their first appearance early on in the pages of Invincible. Invincible was never made a member, I don't think, but he's worked with them a few times.
 
If they got their own title, that'd be sweet. Now that I think about it, a Teen Team title wouldn't be all that bad, either.

@iLLituracy: That's what I figured but could be for sure because I never read the book. HOWEVER, I'm currently online trying to find a copy of the first collected volume.

Yeah, Guardians of the Globe isn't so much Image's all star team as it is a JLA/Avengers analogue in Kirkman's own universe (which is distinct even with it's frequent crossovers.)  I've been waiting forever for them to get their own series, any book that has more Robot and Monster Girl is a 5/5 to me.  They've been supporting characters since the very beginning, its great that they're finally getting the attention they deserve.  Also, thank God for Kirkman bringing back Invincible's old costume, so much better than the new one.  Maybe we'll see Wolfman in this new series too, could be cool.

I liked the Blue and Black costume not so much with the old one.

I was reading Invincible for a while but kinda stopped. Nothing to do with the book I just never continued. This is definitely a book many should check out.

Haha.......this is awesome.

Ha, I love it! Take that Marvel, with your stupid reveals everyday and even stupider one-liner quotes that are supposed to sum up a character no one cares about yet.  
So great. Major respect points for Image. I love Invincible btw, but I have some catching up to do. Haven't read anything with the new suit in it yet.

So is Guadians of The Globe gonna be a new comic or is it gonna be in Invicible?  Invincible is easily the best comic on the market.

Haha, nice one Image. I need to read the issues that I've been missing of Invincible. Is he really going back to his old costume? Guess it would make a bit of sense, the one he wore for Conquest probably gave him some damn bad memories.

@ inferiorego:

@Nobody:  A few weeks ago in the Image Website they where advertising that he was gonna get the old costume back
 
But this looks interesting! Ill try to pick it up in the near future!

#45 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio

Spidey and Invincible should have another team up!
