!! Immortal Man contains examples of:
* BattleStrip: I.M. 'Goes rambo' by taking his shirt off and tying it around his waist.
* BeneathTheEarth: The surface of the wasteland hides [[spoiler:a race of glowing green mutants]] below.
* BigGuyRodeo: I.M. attempts to choke out Lord Bucket in this manner.
* BucketHelmet: The boss of the wasteland sports one of these.
* BulletProofFashionPlate: Despite remaining stationary for centuries at a time, being chained up underwater, floating in a vat of goo, and being subjected to a building-sized explosion, I.M.'s clothes never show any dirt or wear nor does his hair fall out of his trademark style.
* ButterflyOfDoom: Stabbing someone with a random red syringe [[spoiler:possibly caused the apocalypse and created a race of mutants]]
* CementShoes: The comic begins with I.M. chained to a cement block at bottom of the ocean, condemned there for 'reasons not even he remembers anymore'.
* CompanionCube: The protagonist becomes attached to a skull he finds in the wasteland after naming it.
-->"Alright, well you know his vote now. Not that you expected anything different. Same old Skullsburry.
-->You are losing your goddamn mind."
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: One of I.M.'s distinguishing features.
* DashedPlotLine: The protagonist typically explores a time period for a while, zones out for years until he finds himself in a new setting, then rinse & repeat.
* DullSurprise: I.M.'s reaction to the [[spoiler:violent raid of the lab he was being kept in.]]
-->"Your logic tells you that you should be afraid or confused, but all you're thinking is that now you're gonna be spitting up green stuff for the next hour."
* ExplosionPropulsion: I.M.'s method of escape from the death pit.
* GravityIsAHarshMistress: I.M. zones out and ends up standing on air after the end of a cliff.
* GroinAttack: I.M. employs this strategy against Lord Bucket.
* HandSignals: Since he doesn't know the language everyone else is speaking, this is his main form of communication.
-->"You make an attempt at the classic "What the hell, man?" shrug. This is typically used as a request to end one's bogus behavior and explain one's self immediately."
* HurricaneOfPuns: I.M. comes up with a few cracks about him being trapped under a fridge.
-->"...none of these puns are making you feel better about your leg being stuck in the crisper. At least this thing's empty."
* ImaginaryEnemy: I.M.'s hallucinated skeletal companion 'Terry' is far from polite.
* ImmortalImmaturity: I.M. frequently flips people off, and at one point draws dickbutt on a piece of paper.
-->"This is childish, but nobody ever said immortality cancels out immaturity."
* InnerMonologue: The majority of the story is told through the protagonist thinking to himself.
* IRegretNothing: Shouted by I.M. while hurling Skullsburry over a fence on a whim.
* IronButtMonkey: Being unhurtable doesn't stop him from getting tossed around, thrown through walls, punched in the face, or dropped off cliffs.
* LanguageBarrier: I.M. has yet to meet anyone that speaks english, and has to communicate in body language and doodles.
* LanguageDrift: Upon surfacing after an indeterminately-long time chained up underwater, I.M. is frustrated to discover that language has morphed so significantly that he can no longer communicate.
-->"Oh, right. It's the future. What was it that linguists say? In 500 years any language becomes warped to the point of being unrecognizable? Awesome."
* LivingRelic: After zoning out in the wasteland, he ends up in a time in which [[spoiler:he is possibly the only human left.]]
* MadeOfIndestructium: I.M.'s hawaiian shirt, jeans, & shoes are inexplicably just as immortal as he is.
* NeckLift: Lord Bucket drops I.M. into a death pit this way.
* NewspaperDating: One of the protagonist's only 'goals' is to find a calendar, or otherwise anything than can point him towards his current date.
* NotBigEnoughForTheTwoOfUs: "There's only room for one super tough stoic in this apocalypse."
* PerpetualExpression: Aside from the occasional smirk or raising of eyebrows, I.M. always wears the same blank expression.
* PeopleJars: I.M. is stuck into one of these to be experimented on.
-->"It's the same story every time. You just can't be immortal in peace without some jackass sticking you in a test tube to try and "study" you."
* PipePain: I.M. wields a pipe in his final confrontation against Lord Bucket.
* RidiculouslyPotentExplosive: A match and an ice cream truck worth of gasoline produces an explosion the size of an apartment complex.
* RiskyBusinessDance: I.M. does a limited-space version of the Hustle in his cell, not realizing two women are watching him through the security cameras.

* SicklyGreenGlow: [[spoiler:The mutants.]]
* SingleTear: Lord Bucket sheds one after being exposed to I.M.'s [[GroinAttack battle prowess.]]
* SkewedPriorities: I.M. registers more surprise in reaction to discovering where a shirtless society kept their laundry than he did when [[spoiler:a task force broke into the lab he was in via explosion]], or when [[spoiler:he discovered there was a race of mutants living underground in the wasteland.]]
* SlimeSnailsAndMutantTails: The general aesthetic of [[spoiler:the wasteland mutants.]]
* SpikesOfDoom: The wasteland features these, both on walls and in a death pit.
* ThereWasADoor: While I.M. and Lord Bucket are wrestling, they bust into a building through a wall that was right next to an open door.
* TimeAbyss: The protagonist's main character trait.
* TimeDissonance: Many years pass in what seems to be under a minute from I.M.'s perspective.
* TimeSkip: Anytime I.M. 'zones out', he tends to skip over a few centuries.
* ToxicWasteCanDoAnything: [SubvertedTrope Subverted.] I.M. licks some toxic waste wondering if it will give him superpowers, but all it does is gross him out.
* {{Wingdinglish}}: The future language is represented this way.
