Low-Frequency Listener (L-FL): This issue explores the aftermath of the Invincible War.
Invincible #61 (I#61): The issue opens with a news-reporter recap of the war and scenes of heroes helping refugees and cleaning ruble.
L-FL: The scene shifts to Mark Grayson voicing his doubts to an unconscious Samantha Wilkins. Cecil Stedman, head of the Global Defense Agency at the Pentagon, arrives to teleport Invincible to a city to help with the clean-up.
I#61: As soon as Invincible appears at the ruined city, he’s attacked by Powerplex (who escaped from the destroyed prison) who blames Invincible for the mass destruction. Eventually, after four pages, Badrock subdues the Powerplex for incarceration.
L-FL: The scene again shifts to Mark Grayson again confessing his reticence about being a hero to Atom Eve. Grayson leaves after Samantha’s parents arrive.
I#61: Another scene shift has the Sequids seize control of two firemen who have stumbled onto the rubble of astronaut Rus Livingston’s destroyed apartment.
L-FL: The following page shows the Immortal return to life, reject control of Guardians of the Globe, and admits his desire to have kids with Dupli-Kate.
I#61: Following Dupli-Kate’s joy, the comic narrates a two-page incident that portrays Cecil Stedman trying to organize a new Guardians of the Globe. Invincible rejects leadership of the proposed group.
L-FL: The final four pages portray a Viltrumite agent, named Conquest, threatening to kill Invincible. So, for this issue the superhero definition is that a superhero is aware of the consequences that result from his or her possible actions and revisits and considers his goals and reasons for his chosen heroics.
I#61: Very well.
