Low-Frequency Listener (L-FL): Fights continue in this issue as five heroes face off against three villains and their host of henchmen.
Invincible #72 (I#72): The heroes are Invincible, Omni-Man, Young Omni-Man, Tech Jacket, and Allen the Alien. The villains are three Viltrumites, a super-powered colonial conquering race working on expanding their control through the universe.
L-FL: This issue marks the first battle of the Viltrumite War, the opening moves of the Coalition of Planets battling against the Viltrumite army.
I#72: The focus of the issue remains fixed on the contention between Invincible and Conquest. A lot of blood, violent jokes, and head-butts bounce between the characters. With gruesome grisliness, Invincible keeps his hands clamped around Conquest’s neck while Conquest extracts his intestines and then expires.
L-FL: Gross. Alas, though, this scene births the definition of superhero for this installment. A superhero maintains her or his grip and never lets go until the goal is accomplished.
I#72: Such determination still could make one cry for help.
