Who’d win in a fight? It’s the oldest and oftentimes most persistent question superhero fans ask each other. How would one of our favorite heroes fare if pitted against a similarly powerful hero? How about the heroes – or villains – of another comic book universe? It’s a question Invincible creator Robert Kirkman and artists Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley explored when the three comic superstars sat down to celebrate Invincible’s 20th anniversary in Skybound’s Los Angeles studio.
Ever wonder how Invincible would do if he fought Homelander, the wicked antagonist of The Boys? What about manga My Hero Academia’s All Might? Or DC and Marvel’s mightiest champions — Superman and the Hulk? (The latter of whom, as Ryan Ottley helpfully points out, has sported a jetpack in recent issues of his comic book.)
These are just a few of the bouts the comic creators discuss in the video below – it’s “Invincible Vs. the World”! Check it out, and be sure to stay until the end of the video to see how Invincible’s mom Debbie would fare… Then weigh in with your thoughts on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook or Instagram.
