Bulletproof is a fictional character a comic book superhero from the Image Comics series Invincible. His first appearance was in Invincible #9, but before the name "Invincible" was settled on, "Bulletproof" was one of the proposed names of the main character of the series. Bulletproof's costume also appears to be based on early designs for Invincible's costume, and in Invincible's first visit to Art Rosenbaum, the tailor who supplies his costumes, Art's initial offering ends up being worn by Bulletproof.

Character History

Bulletproof attended the auditions for the new Guardians of the Globe held after the original Guardians were murdered. At this time he was not selected; however, after Robot's chosen team failed to live up to expectations, Donald, the Guardians' government liaison, made some changes to the team, including adding Bulletproof to the roster.

As well as being super fast (almost as fast as Red Rush) and having the ability to fly, Bulletproof is apparently almost as invulnerable as Omni-Man, although according to Bulletproof "not nearly as evil." Despite his supposed invulnerability, early in his career with the Guardians of the Globe, Bulletproof was hospitalized for several weeks after an encounter with the extraterrestrial creature Battle Beast. He has subsequently made a full recovery and remains an active member of the Guardians.

Alternate Versions

*An older version of Bulletproof was seen to be one of the members of the Guardians of the Globe from the future who rescued Invincible when he became stranded in an alternate reality after an encounter with Angstrom Levy.
