Invincible #87 (Um... Hi... Spoilers)

OK, now I get what the point of the whole ‘Mark works with Dinosaurus to save the world’ plot is, it’s a parallel of what Allen is planning with Earth and the Viltrumites. Both Allen and Dinosaurus are willing to kill a lot of people now to make the world (and in Allen’s case the Universe) a better place, but are they right? It’s a heady topic for a superhero comic to address, and on the whole Kirkman has done well with it, but it is frustrating that Mark couldn’t see what he’s doing is similar to Allen’s plans, but then he is only human. The last page was fantastic, the when that Viltrumite King guy is around, things get bloody, and that’s how I like it.

Fixed for accuracy. God I cannot wait to see the Emperor in action and see that power teased at the end of the Viltrumite War.

I don't think what Mark is doing is similar to Allen's plans. Mark is keeping Dinosaurus from killing people to put his ideas to work. Allen is willing to kill a planet full of people for the rest of the universe, after knowing a full Viltrumite who changed his ways and a hybrid who rejected Viltrumite culture.
However, Liefeld is an enigma wrapped in a pouch-filled, muscular, footless conundrum.
