** Naturally, with the Viltrumites are a race of space conquerors known for being really powerful FlyingBricks, have lead many readers to compare them with the Saiyans from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' more than with the Kryptonians. Creator Robert Kirkman said he never heard of Dragon Ball when he created the Viltrumites, making the similarities a coincidence.

** Some people even compare Mark with Gohan during the ''Majin Buu saga'', where he was in a phase as the Great Saiyaman, a superhero parody who nobody took seriously, which is similar to Invincible trying to be an IdealHero in a very cinical world.

*CompleteMonster: [[TheSocialDarwinist Grand Regent Thragg]], ruler of the Viltrumite empire, continues the brutal traditions of only the strong surviving, conquest and genocide throughout the galaxy. Ordering the deaths of countless billions, Thragg leads his people against the heroic half-Viltrumite [[TheProtagonist Markus "Mark" Grayson]], resulting in the loss of their homeworld. Opting to lurk on earth to breed a new army of Viltrumites with the survivors, Thragg learns his ArchEnemy, Mark's father Nolan, is the true heir of the empire. Thragg attempts to murder him, only to be defeated and exiled where he travels to a short lived species' world, taking it over and forcibly breeding thousands upon thousands of disposable half-Viltrumites who initially age quickly. Initiating a new war, Thragg attempts to wipe out entire worlds to establish the New Viltrumite Empire, using [[AbusiveParents his own children]] as CannonFodder that he can send to literally break upon their enemy, dying pointlessly by the hundreds before attempting to destroy earth and his old Viltrumite followers now defending it. A cruel tyrant obsessed with his ideals of strength at the expense of all else, Thragg remained Mark's most personal foe and the author of endless misery.

* EarWorm: This is still the King of Pop we're talking about here. We dare anyone ''not'' to dance along to "Unbreakable" or "You Rock My World."



* SoOkayItsAverage: What listeners eventually felt about it after the controversy about Jackson's personal life died down. By all accounts, yeah, it's not a great Music/MichaelJackson album, and contains some of his more infamous post-''Music/{{Dangerous}}'' trademarks: songs that [[EpicRocking go on for a hundred years]], borrowing from [[GenreAdultery several then-popular styles of music]] and trying (and failing) to repeat the success of ''Music/{{Thriller}}'''s title track. However, this is ''still'' the King of Pop, who refused to release ''anything'' unless he felt it was as flawless as possible, so the songs on their own are still good. It's telling that "You Rock My World" was the #1 downloaded song on iTunes the day MJ died and not, say, "Billie Jean" or "Don't Stop 'Till You Get Enough."

How much of a point he has depends on whether you consider destroying someone's planet worse than being the overlord of an expansionist space empire that routinely engages in mass murder.]]

** Just when you think Robot couldn't get any worse, [[spoiler: at the end of issue 137, he orders the kidnapping of all the Viltrumites' children and effectively forcing them be '''''child soldiers!''''' [[SarcasmMode No doubt]] [[PapaWolf this]] [[MamaBear will]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge end well]] [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong once their parents find out....]]]]

** The series wastes no time in reminding us that heroes who aren't Mark, Allen, or members of Mark's alien heritage are inferior and are used as nothing but canon fodder. So it makes it difficult to really give a crap about the rest of the characters.
