The Immortal is a character in Invincible. He is an immortal superhero and a member of the original Guardians of the Globe, now the sole surviving member after the others were brutally murdered by the former superhero Omni-Man.

History[]

Origin[]

Millenia ago, a Celtic warrior came across a strange spiral of energy, reaching out towards it (presumably out of curiosity) the anomaly arc'ed out towards him, infusing him with its power and making him Immortal.

Over the years he would use his longevity for the cause of justice, leaving his mark on history, becoming a knight (Possibly King Arthur, or a Knight of the Round Table), and even the renowned Abraham Lincoln, before donning a cape and costume sometime in the early 20th century.

White House Attack[]

One day the Mauler Twins attacked the White House but the Guardians of the Globe intervened to stop them, led by The Immortal.

When Mauler Twins kept on fighting the heroes intending to cause as much damage as possible, it was thanks to precise coordination by the experienced super team that helped prevent casualties by carrying civilians from the White House. Soon it was just the heroes against the twins, who were swiftly defeated once the battleground was clear of innocents.

Death[]

Later, The Immortal was pursing the elderly villain Bi-Plane, who announced his suicidal plot to explode over Denver with a plutonium lined suit, but The Immortal throws him into space before he can finish his threat. Immediately afterwards he receives a call to return to Guardians HQ.

The heroes meet, but soon realize that none of them called them together. While they realized it was a trap none were prepared to see Omni-Man flying towards The Immortal intending to punch his head off, Red Rush barely managing to push him out of the way. The heroes, dumbstruck, try defending themselves from Omni-Man with The Immortal in disbelief he would assault them of his own free will, all the while Red Rush moves them out of the way of his attacks until Omni-Man manages to grab hold of Rush's head and proceeds to squeeze as the speedster continues to resist with a flurry of punches, until the last moment when his skull is crushed.

The Immortal attacked by Omni-Man .

Martian Man wraps himself around Omni-Man, and The Immortal, still unable to fathom why he killed Red Rush, punches him. Omni-Man endures their punches, making him stagger but he still manages to kill Darkwing by slamming him into the ground, followed by Green Ghost, who had caught Darkwing's body. Aquarus attacks Omni-Man, and The Immortal speculates that there must be somebody controlling him. However, he and War Woman agree that it is them or him. Omni-Man managed to kill Aquarus by smashing his head in with War Woman´s hammer, causing an enraged Martian Man, to wrap himself around Omni-Man once again so his colleagues could hit him. However Omni-Man managed to rip out Martian Mans heart and critically wounds The Immortal with a punch through his gut, subsequently killing War Woman by snapping her neck. The Immortal can only weakly ask him why he had done this, but Omni-Man stays silent, decapitating him before collapsing from the accumulated blows the heroes landed on him.

The Mauler Twins bring him back to life.

Funeral and Resurrection[]

"WHERE'S OMNI-MAN?! WHERE IS HE?!." -Immortal after being resurrected.

After the battle against Omni-Man, The Immortal's head and body are taken to the Global Defense Agency and later given a funeral along the other former members of the Guardians. Some time after Robot and the Mauler Twins enter into an agreement to work together to create a new body for Robot, but who later turns on them. After which, the Mauler Twins exhume The Immortal's corpse from his private burial and begin work on resurrection with the intent to control The Immortal using a specially designed obedience collar, created with schematics given to them by Robot.

The Mauler Twins are successful in reviving The Immortal but the obedience collar they try to use on him as he awakens does not work, due to bad schematics given to them by Robot. Angered by Omni-Man's actions, Immortal escapes and went on to find Omni-Man.

Kaiju assault[]

The Immortal being examined by GDA doctors.

"MURDERER! WE TRUSTED YOU! YOU BETRAYED US!" "You should've stayed dead." -Omni Man and Immortal fighting.

After escaping the Mauler Twins, The Immortal quickly identifies the location of Omni-Man and interrupts the ongoing battle against a Kaiju. Whilst Invincible fights the Kaiju, The Immortal and Omni-Man begin fighting each other as two News helicopters begin live-streaming for the world to see. Whilst evenly matched, Omni-Man punches Immortal through the stomach once again, but The Immortal gains the upper hand briefly by attacking Omni-Man's eye sockets, only to be bisected to the horror of Invincible and those watching, revealing Omni-Man's true nature.

After this, his remains were recovered by the GDA, with the intent of resurrecting him once again.

Powers and Abilities[]

Powers[]

  • Flight: Immortal can achieve Mach 3 as flight speed.
  • Superhuman Strength: Immortal has strength much greater than normal humans. Immortal was able to throw Bi-Plane from the sky all the way to space. His strength has been shown to rival that of Omni-Man's, as he was able to hold his own with him during their fight, even injuring his eyes with his thumbs before finally being bested.
  • Superhuman Speed: Immortal has speed greater than normal humans.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Immortal tires less easily than normal humans.
  • Superhuman Endurance: Immortal has greater endurance than normal humans.
  • Superhuman Durability: The Immortal's skin is much harder to pierce than normal human skin. Only beings of similar or greater strength can seriously injure him.
  • Enhanced Healing Factor: Immortal is capable of healing from injuries much faster than average humans.
  • Immortality: Due to an unknown accident that happened to him, Immortal cannot age. Immortal has lived for thousands of years and is still in his physical prime.
  • Resurrection: The Immortal can be resurrected if his brain and heart are surgically reconnected. If done successfully, his natural healing factor will take over and he will eventually regain consciousness.

Abilities[]

  • Hand-to-Hand Combat: The Immortal has mastered through years different styles of hand-to-hand combat. He was able to take down the Mauler Twins with the help of the Guardians of the Globe and was capable of sufficiently holding his own against Omni-Man before ultimately failing.
  • Leadership: Through the ages, the Immortal has learnt to be an efficient leader allowing him to win most of his battles. His leader abilities were demonstrated through his role among the Guardians of the Globe.

Weaknesses[]

  • Mental Fortitude: Due to the sheer length of time he has been alive on Earth, he has had multiple bouts of psychosis, and though he is presently of sound mind, his temporary death at the hands of Omni-Man sent him into a psychotic rage upon his revival.
  • Dismemberment: His healing factor can be rendered inert if his brain and heart are disconnected, in addition to putting him in an indefinite state of unconsciousness. He can also be dismembered if his body is in multiple pieces, which would truly render him inert.

Trivia[]

  • The Immortal is a homage to DC's Vandal Savage. While also immortal, his mandate is instead the pursuit of world conquest rather than heroism.
  • It is unknown how Cecil and the GDA were unable to resurrect him while the Mauler Twin's were able to with ease.
  • The Immortal was technically the seventh and the last of the guardians to die. However, this was no longer the case as he was resurrected by the Mauler Twin’s.
