Any fan of comic books knows that deaths don’t mean much. Often, they are only used to drum up some sales, generate a little interest in the press and quickly discarded when that story is over. In Marvel comics, every character has spent a weekend in hell and most come out of the experience alive.
In the world of Invincible, however, death is something of a big deal. The power levels in the setting are purposefully high in order to have the conventions of the superhero genre without having to resort to death as a fallback position.
Robert Kirkman promises that Invincible 100 is going to be special with not one, but 5 deaths in it. Here’s hoping he’s right.
