Basically, stay away from this thread if a new issue has come out and you haven't read it yet.

Figured we could use a thread to discuss Invincibile, and the direction we think the series is going to go in from here.

First off, I'm pretty excited that the last two issues actually came out within a month of each other, finally the schedule is back on track (hopefully).

So, with the end of the Viltrumite War, I assumed we'd be seeing the end of the major plot-thread of Invincible, the Viltrumites, their plans, and the Coalition's attempts to stop them. So before I read the last couple of issues I was thinking, well, what is going to drive this series now? Seeing the next few covers in advance, it gives the impression that, from here on, it's just a bunch of fights against all of Mark's villains. Dinosaurus, Tether Tyrant, Magmaniac, Universa, PowerPlex... I was worried that this series was going to boil down to standalone issues where Invincible fights a villain and moves on. The last two issues changed my mind, because now we have yet more plot-threads and questions.

Will Allen release the Scourge virus on Earth and doom his friends?

What is going to happen to the Invinci-reanimen?

Are the Viltrumites really going to remain hidden?

Will Nolan find his true place in this world?

Will Eve lose that weight?

What do you guys think?

Dammit....Ishould have made this when I had the chance >_>

 any ideas on why the black guy takes on the name invincible, personaly i'm thinking that mark takes a break from heroics and one of his friends takes over for him, hopefully it's BulletProof, but the hair is completly different, or it could be his friend from highschool that we haven't seen since he started collage

What do you guys think?

1. Somebody else will acquire Scourge virus and use it, against Allen's wishes.

2. Cecil will use them when the time comes.

3. Knowing Viltrumites, I don't believe they can stay hidden for a long time.

4. I doubt it, not with all the world knowing that Omni-Man is evil.

5. I think Eve's weight is a hint that she is going to break up with Invincible. After all, she is a complete mess after

just read the newest issue, and i'm am seriously pissed at what Eve went and done (i'm all for the choice of it) she never even asked mark's opinion she just went and did it, I don't think their relationship will last after something like that

that in itself has both postives and negatives, she'd be reminded everyday of him, she'd have to raise him alone no one would ever be intrested in a single mam.

i 100% agree that she was being retarded, and that she should not have gotten the abortion, was just trying to show some of the reasons that she could of had for going through with the abortion

I think the authors just needed an excuse to break them up.

@Primmaster64:  i think that cover is supposed to lead into the black invincible story, the cover looks like him contemplating him giving up being a superhero not breaking up with Eve

^ this

Also:
How does weight gain translate into "break up"? After what they went through in the last issue i would say they are closer now.

@Kallarkz:  Mark might have a problem with what she did, and down the line that could translate into them breaking up

Very much doubt that. The writers made Mark own up to the fact that he left Eve in that situation and really built up his character by making him apologize for having left her for so much time.

Mark has been an ever maturing character since he came into existence and i sincerely doubt the writers would all of a sudden make him say "Wait i didn't like that at all". Very bad taste and not at all consistent with how they have been writing him. Hes no longer a child

Guys I just finished Invincible #71 ..... my local comic store doesn't carry the Invincible series anymore following #71.

someone explain this whole Black Invincible to me. I am up to date on all Invincible so no need to fear revealing spoilers and stuff. Also Eve surprised the hell out of me, i thought she had given them up for adoption or something(that's who I thought Immortal's kids originally were).

#36 Posted by Vitality (1762 posts) - - Show Bio


I want to know what's up with Kirkman.

 

It's like he has no idea what to do after the Viltrumite War.

 

In my opinion...even though Invincible is by far my favorite character...this series is going downhill after the war.

Oh, and don't read the rest of my post, there might be spoilers about 70 issues in advance xD

I kinda agree. I was wondering whether it was just the fact that I've finally caught up and now I have to read things an issue at a time... But yeah, not much happened in the last couple of issues. Very slow. I especially want to see some closure to the Nolan situation. Is he just hanging out in the Grayson house since he came back? Kirkman needs to do something with him.

I agree with that. Awesome cover, too. But yeah, definitely doesn't look like a 'break-up' issue.

I want to know about that too.

 

This is the first I've seen or heard about the Black Invincible.

 

Someone please explain.

is the series on hold or something or just delayed?
Seems like it's been forever since the last issue came out.
#43 Posted by -Eclipse- (7554 posts) - - Show Bio
@Kallarkz: They've been behind schedule since Viltrumite War, idea being that they were building towards that story since forever, so they wanted to do it big and awesome, schedule be damned. Which is why Ryan ended up doing about a dozen two-page spreads in one mega sized issue, which of course also had to be inked and coloured. I kinda think that FCO's colouring might have slowed them down a bit, explains his temporary replacement. 
 
But you're right, it has been over a month now... I can only assume the new issue will be out next Wednesday, fingers crossed. I hope the pace picks up, too, and Kirkman decides what he wants to do with Nolan.

Typical that you guys censor your spoilers in a topic that has 'SPOILERS' in the title... xD 
 
Dang, I'm a little late to the party, but issue 80 was pretty freaking amazing. What I liked most was how the pace FINALLY seems to be picking up. We had some resolution to the Nolan situation, Mark finally visiting William, a great moment between Invincible and that dude with the boots (look at me, trying to avoid spoilers, LOL, spoiler tags never work for me) which I, for the life of me, can't figure out. Kirkman wouldn't throw in a scene like that, especially one taking up so many pages, unless that character was going to come back later on. I just can't figure out what his role might be when he returns. 
 
And that last scene... Wow, totally blown away by that one. Probably the most shocked I've ever been by the ending to a comic book... My brain was coming up with a few solutions to what happened, so I was really surprised when I turned the page to find... THAT.

@Vitality: Oh good. I thought I was the only one that felt the book wasn't up to par. Did anyone else find the Viltrumite War arc to be a little underwhelming? Maybe a bit disappointing? I was expecting it to be a little more epic and I felt I didn't get that.
