Low-Frequency Listener (L-FL): This issue guest stars the Astounding Wolf-Man. The comic opens with Robot analyzing remnants of a camera used to spy on Invincible and Kid Omni-Man. Invincible falsely assumes the Pentagon sent the camera, and when confronting Cecil about the surveillance, finds himself ensnared in a mission to capture the Astounding Wolf-Man and defeat the cyclopean giant that last appeared in Invincible 42. After cooperating to defeat the Giant, Wolf-Man’s alter-ego (Gary Hampton) explains his innocence regarding his slain wife to Invincible. Believing the confession, Invincible takes Wolf-Man to Cecil with the hope that he can become part of the Guardians of the Globe.
Invincible #57 (I#57): Wolf-Man’s exoneration doesn’t occur that easily. He and Invincible fight a mob of Reanimen in the White Room, and have a showdown with the Guardians of the Globe. After winning the fight, Invincible carries Wolf-Man back to his mansion to see his sleeping daughter and friend Dunford and resolves to clear his name.
L-FL: After the defeat of the Giant, Wolf-Man pleads with Invincible to listen to his story. This plea for an audience continues when the two enter the Pentagon, and it takes a physical threat from Invincible to have Cecil and his henchmen hear the Wolf-Man’s explanation. So a superhero is one that uses opportunities to listen.
I#57: That sounds like good treatment for one who may still prove useful to me….
