Mark was engaged in an intense, prolonged battle with his long-standing adversary, Angstrom Levy, who had the formidable ability to travel between alternate dimensions and parallel universes.
To try and gain the upper hand in their fierce confrontation, Angstrom used his powers to reach into other realities and pluck out villainous doppelgangers of Mark – twisted alternate versions of Invincible that had become as malevolent and destructive as Omni-Man, Mark’s own father, once was.
Unlike the noble and good-natured Mark from our main universe, these sinister duplicate Marks had strayed morally far from the original hero we know, instead fashioned by their experiences into vicious, amoral fighters.
Angstrom summoned these dark mirror images of Invincible, evil echoes of Mark to overwhelm his long-hated enemy with their greater numbers and ruthless, no-holds-barred tactics learned in the harsh worlds they came from.
Now faced with multiple vicious opponents, all bearing his own appearance and abilities, Mark found himself against near-impossible odds in this already hard-fought clash of epic proportions. He would need all his strength, resolve, and heroism to battle through and overcome this devious ambush by his relentless foe.
Exploring the Variations of Mark in the Multiverse of Invincible!
Here is the compilation of all Mark variations in the Multiverse of Invincible.
1. Alternate Mark One
In an alternate dimension, there existed a version of Invincible’s villain, Mark, who was very familiar with the superpowers and weaponry used by Rex Splode.
During a major battle event known as the Invincible War, which spanned multiple days, this alternate Mark brutally attacked and harmed two heroes named Monster Girl and Bulletproof on the second day of fighting.
However, that version of villainous Mark ultimately faced his demise while combatting the Rex Splode character that we, as audiences, are more familiar with from the Invincible comic series and TV show.
In order to save the lives of his closest allies, Rex Splode sacrificed himself by converting his own skeleton into an explosive device to defeat alternate Mark. He gave his life heroically in the process.
2. Alternate Mark Two
Likewise, during the second day of fighting, another version of villainous Mark, who we’ll call Alternate Mark Two, went head-to-head against several superheroes, including Superpatriot, Angelica Murphy, Kurr Dragon, and Mighty Man the Second. He battled fiercely against them.
However, Alternate Mark Two ultimately was defeated in combat by the hero Savage Dragon.
After being bested, Alternate Mark Two was later unwillingly transformed into a powerful undead soldier called a Reanimate, which was a zombie-like creature under the control of D.A. Sinclair to be used as a weapon.
Despite his own great strength, Alternate Mark Two could not overcome the combined might of Earth’s champions. In the end, he lost his free will and autonomy at the hands of Sinclair.
3. Alternate Mark Three
The villainous Alternate Mark Three had murdered the Atom Eve native to his own dimension, relishing in the act.
When he encountered the Atom Eve of the central timeline, he chose to prolong her suffering, savoring the moment rather than eliminating her swiftly. His hubris afforded Eve time to ultimately escape and find sanctuary with the protective Invincible of her world.
Later, on the third day of widespread interdimensional carnage, Alternate Mark Three set to decimating Paris, his cruelty knowing no bounds.
However, unexpected dimensional fluxes stranded him alongside seven other surviving alternate versions of Marks. Turning on one another in their madness, these Marks feast in a frenzy, and Alternate Mark Three meets his end, consumed alive by his supposed allies.
4. Alternate Mark Four
Consumed by rage and patricide, Alternate Mark Four savagely murdered his own mother in cold blood. Before he could enact further vengeance against his father, Omni-Man obliterated their family home in devastating retaliation.
As the transdimensional Invincible War erupted, Alternate Mark Four battled Oliver Grayson on the opening day of chaos. By the third day, drunk on destruction, Alternate Mark Four had razed Sydney to the ground without mercy. Finding dark solace amidst the ruins of his ruined family home, he convened with the remaining handful of alternate Marks.
But their unhinged ambitions were cut short – stranded in an alien world by Angstrom Levy’s machinations, Alternate Mark Four and his allies faced oblivion, doomed to meet their ends in the dust of a dead reality.
5. Alternate Mark Five
Of all the alternate dimension Marks, number Five bore the closest resemblance to a pure-blooded Viltrumite conqueror in appearance and dress.
He sported the typical Viltrumite thick mustache and ominous stark white uniform, deliberately invoking their fearsome legacy.
However, Alternate Mark Five’s ambitions outstripped his capabilities. He met a premature demise on the mere second day of the transdimensional Invincible War.
Though killed in action, his corpse was grimly reanimated as a ghastly undead soldier – a “reaniman” – forced to fight past death through unholy magic.
Despite boasting the aesthetics of Viltrumite nobility, Alternate Mark Five wound up reduced to a shambling empty husk, denied even the dignity of restful death.
It was a dark fate for one who cloaked himself so proudly in the iconography of a legendary warrior race.
6. Alternate Mark Six
Brimming with contempt, Alternate Mark Six confronted the central timeline’s duo of Atom Eve and Invincible.
Engaging them in a ferocious battle, Alternate Mark Six managed to grievously injure Eve, nearly tearing the heroine asunder in a savage display of violence.
However, drunk on perverse triumph, he left Eve broken but alive as he turned to finish off Invincible.
This would prove Alternate Mark Six’s undoing. Enraged by the brutalization of his wife and partner, Invincible unleashed the full fury of his might against the alternate version interloper.
The two clashed in a devastating duel, but ultimately, Invincible overpowered and decisively ended Alternate Mark Six, motivated by righteous vengeance for Eve’s suffering.
In his hubris, Mark Six had focused on inflicting pain rather than efficient tactics, allowing the couple to defeat him despite the element of surprise. His bloodlust left Alternate Mark Six easy prey for an enraged Invincible protecting his beloved.
7. Alternate Mark Seven
Empowered by patricide, Alternate Mark Seven murdered his own father, Omni-Man, in his native dimension. He then fashioned a battle suit in mocking homage to his slain patriarch, bastardizing the iconic Omni-Man look.
However, Alternate Mark Seven’s triumph was short-lived. While carrying out transdimensional conquests, he had the grave misfortune to encounter Madman’s Yo-Yo.
Though boasting superhuman abilities, Alternate Mark Seven fell victim to her lethal namesake weapon. Choked to death by Yo-Yo’s unyielding cable, Alternate Mark Seven met an ignoble end.
But even then, his dark story did not conclude – through profane necromantic magic, his corpse was transformed into a “Reaniman,” an undead slave forced to fight past death.
Though he succeeded in purging his original reality of paternal influence, Alternate Mark Seven wound up bereft of all agency or dignity – fated to serve eternally as a soulless walking corpse drone.
8. Alternate Mark Eight
Proudly draped in the iconic regalia of the Viltrum Empire, Alternate Mark Eight embodied the conquering spirit of his people.
As the transdimensional Invincible War erupted across myriad realities, he reveled in bringing catastrophic ruin to an unfamiliar Earth. Alternate Mark Eight obliterated a teeming city, slaughtering its populace without mercy or distinction.
But cosmic fate is fickle – unexpected dimensional disruptions abruptly hurled Alternate Mark Eight into a parallel world, stranding him alongside seven other marooned alternate Marks.
Turning on each other like rabid animals, the vicious Marks feast in a frenzy of violence. Despite boasting the noble Viltrum uniform, Alternate Mark Eight suffers the gruesome indignity of being eaten alive by his former allies in this alien realm.
His dreams of conquest and glory were erased in one anonymous act of cannibalism, far from the glorious war he had envisioned.
9. Alternate Mark Nine
Unlike the classic Invincible costume, Alternate Mark Nine garbed himself in the bold yellow and black ensemble later associated with the hero Bulletproof in the central timeline.
Coincidentally, this was the original prototype suit tailored for Mark Grayson early in his superhero career by his mentor, Art Rosenbaum.
While Mark would go on to adopt the renowned blue and yellow outfit, his alternate reality counterpart clung to the discarded design.
Boldness provided no protection, however, when Alternate Mark Nine violently infiltrated the Pentagon’s clandestine White Room.
Set upon by Reanimen – undead soldier slaves – Alternate Mark Nine fought valiantly but fell in defeat. Ironically, though he managed to reach the White Room wearing Bulletproof’s colors, Alternate Mark Nine did not live up to that heroic mantle.
The Reanimen battered his corpse too extensively to even resurrect as one of their undead numbers.
10. Alternate Mark Ten
Among the vicious ranks of the alternate Invincibles, Mark Number Ten met one of the quickest ends. He survived the chaotic first clashes of the transdimensional Invincible War, only to fall abruptly on the very second day of Reality-spanning combat.
Though gifted with tremendous Viltrumite might, Alternate Mark Ten fatally underestimated earthly champions. He crossed paths with Sara Pezzini – the storied supernatural warrior wielding the legendary Witchblade.
Alternate Mark Ten likely expected easy prey, but the ancient mystical artifact lent Pezzini sufficient power to decisively overcome him.
Blindsighted by her skill and ensorcelled weaponry, mighty Alternate Mark Ten perished ignobly at her hands just as the landscape-shattering War was gaining momentum.
It is a sobering display that one should never underestimate even “lesser” heroes when meddling with unfamiliar new dimensions.
11. Alternate Mark Eleven
Unlike his numerical counterparts, Alternate Mark Eleven was not actually based on Mark Grayson at all but rather paid homage to another famous fictional fallen hero – Star Wars’ Anakin Skywalker.
His veiny, scarred head mirrored Anakin’s appearance following his grotesque lava immolation and transformation into Darth Vader. This likely indicated that in his native reality, Alternate Mark Eleven suffered similar catastrophic burns, perhaps at the hands of his Viltrumite father, Omni-Man.
Indeed, he harbored deep resentment towards his father. After enduring over a year locked away in an intergalactic Viltrumite prison, Alternate Mark Eleven burst free, drunk on vengeance.
On the very first day of the transdimensional Invincible War, he flew directly to the Kremlin, no doubt seeking authoritarian might to aid his retribution against paternal betrayal. By the third day, Moscow itself faced his wrath as he prepared to raze it for defying him.
But omnicide would elude Alternate Mark Eleven – unexpected dimensional tricks stranded him alongside seven fellow alternate Marks.
Turning on each other ravenously, he faced death far from home, all ambitions thwarted. Despite boasting an iconically villainous visage, Alternate Mark Eleven met his quiet end half a universe away, condemned to die anonymously amid the rubble of a dead reality.
12. Alternate Mark Tweleve
On the chaotic second day of the transdimensional Invincible War, Alternate Mark Twelve set his sights on this world’s premier superteam – the Guardians of the Globe.
Accustomed to facing much mightier versions of his native reality, he made short work of them. Shapesmith, Darkwing the Second, and Black Samson all fell before him, left critically ravaged. Flush with arrogant confidence, Alternate Mark Twelve then horrifically decapitated the legendary Immortal himself.
Defiling Immortal’s remains even further, Alternate Mark Twelve jammed the severed head mockingly onto a duplicated body spawned by Dupli-Kate.
As Kate’s army of clones swarmed to avenge their template, Alternate Mark Twelve slaughtered them en masse with sadistic delight.
Ultimately, only Darkwing could halt his onslaught, activating her transdimensional teleportation ability to forcibly drag them both into the nightmarish Shadowverse.
13. Alternate Mark Thirteen
In one alternate reality, the version of Mark Grayson designated as Mark 13 adopted the distinctive style of dress worn by the alien Flaxan race.
On the first day of the cross-dimensional conflict known as the Viltrumite War, Alternate Mark 13 launched an attack on the Pentagon building.
However, he would meet his demise at the hands of Donald Ferguson and Brit, who succeeded in killing Alternate Mark 13.
The injuries sustained by Mark 13’s body left it too gruesomely disfigured to be of use in reanimating into one of the Reanimen soldiers created by Cecil Stedman and his allies.
As a result, Alternate Mark 13’s story came to a swift and unceremonious end early on in the warring between parallel timeline versions of Mark Grayson and his allies.
While other alternate Marks would go on to play more pivotal roles, Mark 13 was little more than a footnote that highlighted the risk posed even by some of the less powerful parallel dimension variants.
14. Alternate Mark Fourteen
In the alternate reality of Mark 14, known as “Mohawk Mark” due to his distinctive hairstyle, his outlook and experiences diverged significantly from the main timeline’s Mark.
Having become close with Atom Eve after she and Rex Splode broke up over his affair with Kate, Mohawk Mark developed a sense of genetic superiority over regular humans.
Believing he was fit to rule, Mohawk Mark sought to make the people worship him as he assembled the backing of his allied superheroes.
Though Atom Eve briefly considered supporting his bid for power, she hesitated when Mohawk Mark murdered Rex in cold blood.
Mohawk Mark then went on to kill Atom Eve herself, along with Kate, who he incorrectly thought was Robot. In the aftermath, Mark’s father, Omni-Man, and the rest of the Viltrumite leadership were assassinated, leaving Mohawk Mark in charge of the entire Viltrumite Empire.
The conquering of Earth was unsatisfying, and the arrival of dimension hopper Angstrom Levy provided the opportunity for interdimensional expansion that Mohawk Mark jumped at.
Levy promised assistance in expanding the Viltrumite empire across parallel worlds, interesting Mohawk Mark in participating in the so-called Invincible War.
On the first day, Mohawk Mark laid waste to the Stronghold Penitentiary, shocked by their inferior technology.
After being knocked out battling the main timeline’s Mark Grayson, Mohawk Mark would regain consciousness and rampage through New York City by the 3rd day prior to becoming stranded in an alternate reality.
Though he partook in eating the flesh of the Mark from Dimension 8, Mohawk Mark found himself unable to continue resorting to cannibalism and abandoned the other stranded Viltrumites.
The main Mark later finds himself stuck in the same plane of existence as Mohawk Mark, who ultimately chooses to save him from the murderous Sinister Mark before killing Sinister.
The two Marks bonded for a time and returned home through a portal conjured by Angstrom Levy.
Seeking to pick up where he left off, Mohawk Mark then turned on the main Mark before opting to spare him and drag Levy back to Mohawk’s adopted reality to torture him for failing to live up to his promises of cross-dimensional conquest.
Having had a change of heart after all he had done, Angstrom refused to aid Mohawk Mark’s ambitions anymore. As punishment, Mohawk ordered his scientists to push Levy to the brink of death while stripping away his dimensional powers.
Mainline Mark eventually discovered Mohawk Mark’s adopted universe and witnessed how corrupt he had become, causing even Robot to doubt what the main Mark could be capable of.
As a result, Robot stranded mainline Mark in Mohawk’s world briefly before returning to execute Mohawk Mark for his crimes.
15. Alternate Mark Fifteen
This variation of Mark was killed by Tech Jacket. That means that he is the same hero who is not present in his world.
16. Alternate Mark Sixteen
Out of all the parallel dimension variants of Mark Grayson, Alternate Mark 16 was the most twisted and evil version. Known as “Sinister Mark” due to his sinister personality and actions, Mark turned to the dark side largely as a result of his mother’s death in his native reality.
Ruling over his own ruthless empire, Sinister Mark developed a taste for human flesh and took to cannibalism and torture. Dimensional traveler Angstrom Levy managed to convince Sinister Mark to take part in the cross-reality Viltrumite War by promising expanded imperial conquests.
During the war, Sinister Mark set out in search of the mother he now hated in the form of mainline Mark Grayson’s mother. However, when he breaks into the home of mainline Mark, he encounters Oliver Grayson – someone who didn’t even exist in Sinister Mark’s timeline. Despite quickly overwhelming Oliver, Sinister Mark spared him and abandoned his quest to kill his counterpart’s mother.
It was also revealed that Sinister Mark had manipulated the situation, which led to several alternate versions of Marks becoming stranded together in an isolated dimensional plane.
Blaming Angstrom Levy for the deaths of so many Mark variants, Sinister Mark suggested killing Levy and vowed he would do it himself someday. In the meantime, he fought and cannibalized the remaining Marks trapped with him before meeting his own end at the hands of Mohawk Mark.
17. Alternate Mark Seventeen
The variation of Mark that was responsible for laying waste to London during the Invincible War.
18. Alternate Mark Eighteen
During the Invincible War, the Alternate Mark Eighteen was killed by Pitt.
19. Alternate Mark Nineteen
Alternate Mark Nineteen was the variation that destroyed Tokyo in his dimension.
20. Alternate Mark Twenty
Alternate Mark Twenty was the variation who decided to join his father so that they could rule the world and join the Viltrumite Empire. We can see the 16th issue or the first episode of the second season of the TV series.
21. Alternate Mark Twenty-One
Alternate Mark Twenty-One was the variation, which was revealed in issue 24 to have died in his same universe.
22. Alternate Mark Twenty Two
Alternate Mark Twenty-Two died in the 34th issue.
23. Alternate Mark Twenty-Three
After the death of Atom Eve, he was the one who became evil and acted as the antagonist of his universe.
