About

I Think I Miss My Wife is a quote spoken by Omni-Man (Nolan Grayson) in Invincible volume 45 in reference to his ex-wife Debbie Grayson. The issue was released in 2007 and became the subject of memes as early as April 2024 in which the speech bubble from the panel where Omni-Man says the line is photoshopped to alter the context, often using the phrasal template "I think I X." The exploitable panel also became the subject of redraws, depicting a character from another media franchise saying the quote or a similar variation of it.

Origin

In August 2007, issue 45 of the Invincible comic series was published.[1][2] On the final page, Omni-Man is shown saying, "I think I miss my wife" (shown below).
