Omni-Man shows up and tries to stop the destructive ways of the recently released Mega Supreme and rescue Suprema who's in very bad serious condition.

It just occurred to me... Omniman was the name of the comic-within-a-comic that Ethan drew.

I really do find this concept interesting. I mean, I hate original recipe Supreme, but I'm kind of supposed to, and I like that he's not really the hero here. I don't like the concept quite enough to add yet another title to my pull list, but I still think it's pretty cool.
I don't love Erik Larsen's art though, it's serviceable, but Larsen definitely isn't my first choice to draw it, even if he is writing. I hope that in the long run we see the return of Moore's Supreme (the character I mean, I don't expect Moore to actually come back to writing anything superheroic these days), because I really like what I've read of that run, and something close to that might get me to buy.
Kind of excited in spite of myself seeing where this goes.

I may be misremembering, but that guy looks NOTHING like Nolan.

Thank god for "pornstache=Viltrumite" artistic shorthand.

Wait...I don't actually read Invincible, but from what I've seen I've gathered that Omni-Man was a villain.

That...doesn't seem to mesh well with his lecturing Supreme about heroism...

Omni-Man's a bit ambiguous, but yeah, this lecture would never come out of his mouth.

He was a villain at the start of the series, but after some time in space he mostly reformed. I've only read up to the Viltrumite War, so I don't know about after that, but Omni-Man seemed to be a good guy again, maybe not Superman levels of good guy, but he was definitely on the same side as Invincible.

Wait... didn't Omni Man kill a ton of people... almost for kicks when he beat the crap out of his son?

How did that pan out for him in the end btw? Did he get his comeuppance?

The original fight had his son remind him that he was beating his own kid to death just before the final blow, which caused him to run away in horror of what he did.

Since then, he's kind of ambiguous I think.

Oh yeah I know that much, but he can't be ambiguous with all those people he *did* kill in that fight... I researched it a little since posting and it seems no one has even suggested he get what's coming to him in honour of humans he killed. Ahh well.

He left Earth, eventually rebelled openly against the Viltrumite Empire for the sake of various family members, and is more-or-less heroic at the moment AFAIK. He didn't, like, do a great penance, but I think he's rather sorry. And Kirkmanverse people are pretty practical about the need to have some bastards protect them from bigger bastards, so they're not trying to jail him or anything.

*EDIT* Considering that Earth now has some actual unreformed Viltrumites living on it, who want the planet in one piece for the moment but have threatened to level it if they're disturbed, Nolan's in the "enemy of my enemy" category.

Well, that's fair enough I guess... that reflects the real world in a lot of ways; if you're useful, past sins might not be a factor and all that.

Man, Doctor Strange really beefed himself up.

Wait, wasn't Omni-Man the character in the comic book within the comic book?
