100+ Definitions 94

Invincible #94

Low-Frequency Listener (L-FL): The bouncing back and forth through time and dimensions continues with issue 94 of the superhero comic Invincible.

Invincible #94 (I#94):  The issue opens with Atom Eve rallying to fight the Flaxan invasion.  Mark Grayson, currently a powerless hero, laments his inability to fly into the fight.  After this opening scene, flashes of various heroes battling the invaders fill the pages.

L-FL: The split structure of the issue engages with a shift to Robot and Monster girl gaining political power during their past time spent in Flaxan space.  As their power grows, so to does their relationship and affection towards each other (…they have sex…) and begin shaping the Flaxan world to a more peaceful civilization.

I#94: The plot split returns to the present where the armored Flaxan at the end of issue 93 wades through the heroes and finally reveals on the final page that he is the son of Monster Girl.

L-FL: Accepting that form is content, superheroes contain an intrinsic duality of splits of space and time.

I#94: Such superheroes must often ask their designers if they are surprised to see their son.
