The last three issues have been building up to this moment, Mark Grayson is no longer Invincible. Invincible was my first Image Comic ever. I believe it is superior to The Walking Dead. Ok, enough of that, lets get down to this issue. In the last issue, Mark gets a riff of a virus that could kill him. In this issue, we found out that Mark is in a coma. By the way, he's being taken care of by the remaining members of the Vilturmite Empire. This is the exact reason, I love Invincible. Nothing is predictable. The villain that we've all hated, Grand Regent Thragg is working with the humans to ensure Mark lives. He defintily has a motive and its going to be a lot of fun. According to an alien working for Thragg, Mark's DNA is a match. For what? We will have to wait and read. The beginning of the issue was a flashback. A brand new hero, named Bullet Proof is at the local superhero tailor, searching for a new costume. He notices Invincible's costume and seems a little too fond for it. Lets flash-forward to the present day and the world is in need of Invincible. Bullet Proof AKA Zandale becomes the first-ever black Invincible. I don't see Zandale giving up the costume over easily, anytime soon. Expect an Invincible VS Invincible battle in Issue 100.
