It’s the story Invincible fans have been waiting eight months to read.
When writer Robert Kirkman used his red-hot teen super-hero alongside Spider-Man in Marvel Team-Up #14 last fall, readers got a glimpse of his future as he explained he’d been sent from dimension to dimension by a madman named Angstrom Levy.
After an adventure with the Webbed Wonder, Invincible, AKA Mark Grayson, was back to dimension hopping and fans were left waiting for the story’s conclusion.
Well, here it is and it’s a doozy.
Mark returns home from his trip to Africa to find Levy holding his mother and little brother hostage in a highly intense moment in what has generally been a lighter-toned book. Levy blames Mark for the accident that disfigured him, while our hero knows that it was an accident caused in self-defence.
After Mark is sufficiently tenderized by being sent to some of the most brutal dimensions Levy can think of, their one-on-battle begins and when ends there is some rather dire consequences for Invincible.
Pound-for-pound the best super-hero book on the market continues to show why every single month.
