100+ Definitions 72

Invincible #72

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.
