Book Description

19 Aug 2003 Invincible (Book 1)
Mark Grayson is just like most everyone else his age. He's a senior at a normal American high School. He has a crappy part time job after school and on weekends. He likes girls quite a bit... but doesn't quite understand them. He enjoys hanging out with his friends, and sleeping late on Saturdays... at least until the good cartoons come on. The only difference between Mark and everyone else is that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, and as of late, he seems to be inheriting his father's powers. Strange things begin to happen to Mark Grayson as he begins to develop superpowers. Luckily, his dad is around to show him the ropes, at least he would be if he weren't so busy saving the world all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb, if not entirely original new series 12 Jan 2014
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
The first four issues of Image Comics' Invincible are collected as Invincible Volume 1: Family Matters New Printing: Family Matters v. 1. This is an extremely entertaining story, with excellent scripting and artwork, and a lot of forward planning - as objects thrown in the first volume eventually fall to Earth in the second, for example. The story is simple to explain - a teenage boy whose father is an alien sent to Earth to protect it and ready it for eventual membership in Galactic Civilization, and who happened to marry an Earth-girl (the alien father, that is) hits puberty (the teenage son, that is) and starts to inherit his fathers powers. His father starts training him up, he meets and hangs out with a teenage superhero group, and discovers that one of his high-school teachers is a mad scientist who is turning classmates into cyborg suicide bombs. However, what is important is the flow of the story and the fun he has finding his place in the world of superheroes.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Generic Superhero Story 31 May 2013
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
I've seen Invincible on the shelves for a few years now but never felt the need to pick it up, even to skim the pages - it looks like a generic superhero book even if the Walking Dead guy wrote it and it's published by Image. It just looks too much like every superhero book out there - good looking kid in a superhero outfit flying with super strength. Really - is that it? Well I decided to find out for myself today and so I picked it up hoping to be pleasantly surprised - maybe it's a smart satire on superhero stories, maybe it's a Superman analogue that takes a different tack to the concept of superheroism, maybe anything! I was prepared to read something subversive and cool, especially after reading Kurt Busiek's intro where he gushes about the originality of the book.

And then I read the book.


Mark Grayson/Invincible is our superhero main character, son of an ordinary woman and a man who happens to be this world's "Superman". Mark is your average teen going to an average high school in a nondescript American town, who one day finds out he's developed superpowers. He can fly, he has super strength, so he follows in his dad's footsteps and becomes a superhero too.

Mark gets his superhero outfit thanks to his dad's superhero tailor connection, fights baddies, teams up with another group of young superheroes, goes on an adventure with his dad, fights more baddies, and moons over the pretty redhead who's seeing someone else and of course wears a super-revealing outfit.

If all of this seems like something you've read a hundred times before, it's because you have. Invincible isn't a generic superhero comic, it's THE generic superhero comic.
