  • Soon I Will Be Invincible is a novel by Austin Grossman, published by Pantheon Books and released on June 5, 2007.

The other narrative is told from the point of view of Dr. Impossible, a supervillain possessing super-human strength and intellect who suffers from Malign Hypercognition Disorder ("evil genius" syndrome). The plot follows Impossible's thirteenth attempt to take over the world after escaping from prison. The novel—Grossman's first—was written during his tenure as a video game designer. The book uses characters, settings, and storylines generally associated with comic books and superhero fiction, but is written entirely in prose. The story explores how superheroes cope with their powers and interact with one another. The potential motivations and perspectives of supervillains are also examined. Grossman's book has been variously described as clever, engaging, and fun—but overstuffed with comic book tropes. An audiobook was released along with the hardcover edition, while a movie has been in development since 2008. (en)

  • Rainwater is soaking into my costume, seeping through the steel and nylon fibers onto super-hardened skin. I wish I were anywhere but here; I wish I were home. But I'm a supervillain, and I don't have a home, just a space station, or a jail cell, or a base, or a sewer tunnel. I don't have a secret identity; I'm Doctor Impossible just about all the time now.

  • We all retire for the night, but no one goes right to sleep. I know, because the interior walls here are thin enough that at night when I crank my senses through the right spectra, I can see right through them. I feel a little guilty, of course, but I can't resist. I've heard so many so stories and rumors about this crowd, a tight group for so many years. The actual facts are odd, and a little disappointing. (en)
