Invincible Returns occurs between Invincible #70 and #71 where the character prepares for war against the Viltrumites along with his father. It also returns the character to his original super hero costume. Invincible feels bad after having murdered an innocent man possessed by an alien squid. His recent actions have him fear that his Viltrumites origins may push him over the edge and make him violent. Can a return to his original costume mark a return to more innocent times? Well the writer answers this one quickly. You can’t go back. I don’t mind the older costume. But I like that the character is trying his best to do good and be good. Ottley draws most of this book but it’s not his regular inkers. That’s too bad because they almost change the look of his work. This issue by the way is a good jumping on point for readers as it recaps the recent history of Invincible. Often, I’m not sure why I read this series. It’s not bad, but it’s not groundbreaking. What it does best is show the gory side of the super hero world, but the hero keeps maturing and its a great thing. I’m not sure where this next chapter takes him, but I’ll follow along for now. One note, I wish it had been clearer that this issue was to be read before Invincible #71.
