Invincible #89 is, of course, the issue with a cover featuring a black guy in Invincible's costume. It's probably not at all remarkable who it is, but how he gets it is, to my mind, kind of cool.


Zandale picks the yellow-and-orange outfit off the rack that he's been wearing up 'til now.

In the present day, however, Mark's in intensive care after getting exposed to the Scourge virus, and while nobody's quite sure if or when he'll pull through, Eve's "Invincible, Inc." business is floundering.

Nice to see Eve's keeping the weight on. Nice seeing a fuller figured woman doing the super thing.

This is weird, because the original name for Invincible was Bulletproof. So, Bulletproof became Invincible twice.

I love that they gave him the exact same shot as Mark from many issues ago. That's a nice touch right there.

So, Mark's not dead, just in intensive care. So this is likely just a temporary thing?

Seems that way. And given all the threats everyone can't handle BUT Mark I'd extremely doubt he'd ever be a permanent replacement.

They dropped some weird hints, I think Mark is somehow connected to the dead Viltrumite king, so I think maybe he will be busy doing Viltrumite things while Zandale does Invincible things.

Anyone get the feeling there was more than a little bit of a homage to Ultimate Spider-Man here?

Black Invincible was announced on the 2nd of April 2011

Black Ultimate Spider-man was announced on the 2nd of August 2011.

And Kirkman has said that Eve's hair isn't an homage to Mary Jane Watson, just that it went best with her costume colour.

The only homage is that Invinciproof's flying pose is a reference to a previous Invincible page

Two questions.

2. Why doesn't this series has like 500 000 regular readers?
