In one of the most surprising and coolest moves of the year, Marvel is welcoming Invincible into the Marvel Universe for one issue only to team-up with Spider-Man in Marvel Team-Up #14. 

Robert Kirkman, writer of the monthly Marvel Team-Up and the indie hit Invincible, finally gets to play with all of his toys in one sandbox.  And like a little kid with his toys, Kirkman can barely contain his enthusiasm.     

“I'm a comics reader as much as a writer.  I love the stuff, and have for YEARS.  To get to see a character I created running around the Marvel Universe with Spider-Man is a dream come true,” says Kirkman.

What started off as a joke has become a thrilling reality as the new teen superhero Invincible gets to meet the archetype for all teen superheroes: Spider-Man. 

“It came about almost entirely through luck,” recounts Kirkman.  “As a joke, one day while I was talking to Tom Brevoort about future issues, I said: ‘Why don't we use Invincible in an issue?  I know the creators of that guy.”

“For some reason, Tom forwarded that onto Joe Quesada and he liked the idea.  After some boring paperwork we got the ball rolling on what must be the coolest thing to happen in my career YET!” says Kirkman. 

Marvel Team-Up #14 finds universes colliding as Invincible and Spider-Man take on a recently escaped Doctor Octopus.  The New Avengers also make an appearance in this monumental meeting of heroes. 

Be sure to pick up Marvel Team-Up #14 for the team-up you thought you could only dream of as Robert Kirkman is joined by his Invincible co-creator Cory Walker in this one-of-a-kind crossover event.
