I...don't care...what anyone...says about...invulnerability... THAT HURT!
~ Statesman
An Invulnerable hero is a hero who is damage resistant. These are heroes who can shake-off large amounts of damage. Limitations could include a temporary state that ignores damage, a more constant state but where damage is halved as opposed to outright ignored, or true permanent immunity to pain/decay.

The lowest type of character for this are enhanced human durability - who can be harmed but are extremely resistant to pain and minor injuries (many street-level superheroes or mythical warriors count as this, as do some characters who enter a "berserker rage" and shrug off pain, yet still receive some damage).

The highest grade is, of course, the near-indestructible type of hero common in cosmic or epic storytelling - such characters (Superman, Hulk etc) can even survive supernovas or other extreme forces of nature : however unlike a truly invincible hero most characters on this list can be defeated in some manner, though obviously the stronger their durability the less likely it becomes to overpower them via physical force : often magic, exotic technology or a character-specific weakness is used to defeat a hero of extremely high durability (such as Superman's infamous weakness to Kryptonite).

Note: NOT to be confused with Immortals, who can simply come back to life after being killed. This is for heroes who can take a huge amount of punishment WITHOUT dying.
