After a teaser that came out, what, 2 years ago? We finally get around to the debut of… Black-Vincible! And yes, it’s Bulletproof. That’s somewhat of a relief, I’m sure some of us had fears of a Punisher-style pigment change for Mark, but in the end, it’s just Bulletproof filling in for Invincible, who, after inhaling the Scourge Virus is in dire condition in hospital. Now that we know he’s not dead straight away, it’s clear that Mark will eventually recover and that Bulletproof’s stint as Invincible is only temporary, but it’s still cool to see the book do something so different, I hope Kirkman actually gives Bulletproof some character development, because he’s been in the background for ages now yet we know pretty much nothing about him. Was this the first time we were told his name? The other stuff in this issue was also intriguing, especially the scene where Thragg discovers that Mark is a ‘match’ for something or other. Not only was that a gloriously bloody head-burst, but I’m guessing it’s something to do with Mark being a genetic match for the dead Viltrumite king that Thragg carried around the skull of. Time for a brain-transplant storyline?
