Is this planet not riddled with death and disease? Are these people not plagued by violence and war? A Viltrumite occupation would rid them of all that. We would share technology, cure their diseases. No violence would occur under our rule. We could transform this world into a utopia.
~ Anissa in her first appearance.
You really have no idea how much danger you're in right now. That's...Disappointing.
~ To Mark Grayson/Invincible
Tell Mark I'm sorry--that I didn't understand what I was doing... but that I... I don't regret what I did... he'll understand... when he sees him.
~ Anissa.
I refuse to mate with the creatures that reside on this planet. You are young and you are weak... But you have Viltrumite blood pumping through your veins. So you'll do.
~ Anissa to Mark before raping him.

Anissa is a major antagonist in the Image Comics comic book series Invincible, and is a member of the Viltrumite empire. She was sent to Earth in an attempt to convince Nolan' son, Mark to help the Viltrumite empire take over the planet. After his refusal, she became an enemy to Invincible, and later sexually assaulted him to have a child. Five years later, Anissa married a human and continued to her raise her son Marky, and later defended Earth where she sacrificed herself to save Mark and Eve.



A thousands years ago, Anissa was born on the planet Viltrum, and later witnessed Thragg rise to the rank of grand regent of the empire.


Arrival on Earth

Anissa was sent to Earth to inspect what preparations Mark has taken to secure the Earth for Viltrumite control. When Mark revealed he had taken no steps towards the domination of Earth, Anissa decides to reason with him instead of using violence. She explains that the Viltrumite empire will bring peace to Earth and share their technology with one another. When reason fails, Anissa resorts to violence and strikes Mark down, leaving him in a crater.

She warns him that another Viltrumite agent will return for Mark in the later future and decide his fate, and that agent turned out to be Conquest. After her visit to Earth, Anissa ran into Allen the Alien, and attacked him. Allen having recently been powered up was having an easy time with her, but when he realized that she would take him to the same prison as Omni-man, he threw the fight. Letting Anissa win and take him to the prison.

Anissa has also been seen during the Viltrumite war, she has fought Mark, Allen the Alien, and Omni-Man near the planet of Viltrum in a last effort to win the war against the Coalition of Planets. After the planet Viltrum was destroyed, Anissa, along with the remaining Viltumites, relocated to Earth and live amongst its people in secrecy until the time is right to strike.

Anissa assaults Mark

After the Viltrumites begin to assimilate themselves into Earth culture, they start to repopulate their species as they number less than even thirty Viltrumites now. Unlike numerous males of her species, Anissa sees humans as a species she can simply not breed with and instead chooses Mark because of his strength and genes. Anissa first attempts the "human" mating habits.

After those attempts fail, she takes Mark by force after he returns from being trapped in a different dimension (Invincible #110). She and Mark battle across the sky when he rejects her advances and strips him, raping him. After committing the act, she tells Mark to man up, and that they would do it again before flying away, leaving him traumatized.
