Invincible Redesign Entry

This is my entry into the "Invincible: Viltrumite Vogue" contest running over at Project Rooftop.



My "in-story" logic surrounding the new costume:

"The one lesson Mark Grayson aka Invincible has learned over his multiple near death experiences, intense battles, and superhero career is that he needs to start fighting smarter.
After the recent Viltrumite occupation of earth, Mark has enlisted the help of Art Rosenbaum (his original tailor) and Robot to employee a little technology to give him a crime fighting edge. The suit is now composed of “Smart Atoms” which absorb and redirect impact.  So when Mark/Invincible is hit he no longer feels the full brunt of his attacker’s blows. Additionally the smart atoms make the suit much more resilient than previous costumes even repairing itself when necessary.  In an effort to avoid over or underestimating potential threats Robot devised a new visor which provides Invincible with a HUD that analyzes potential threats and ranks their strength, agility and possible weaknesses, enabling him to form a rapid counterattack and hopefully avoiding tragic encounters like those with Angstrom Levy (overestimating) or Conquest (underestimating)."

Here's a look at the various color combinations I played with.

  1. Thank you so much for the kind comment over on my blog! Your design is pretty awesome as well! I love how Olympian you made him. Clean lines and a straight forward concept for Mark, which is perfect given how straight forward the Viltrumites are. I love your piece!
