If you were asked to represent "invincible" or "winning without fighting" in pictures, how would you do it?

Maybe add some more context and detail? Like a hint what kind of a client/project you are looking to do this, what is out of bounds etc... –  Pekka 웃 Feb 12 '11 at 13:46

It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's.. SUPERMAN!

Go for something bold and simple, like the Superman logo! Although this specific logo may have certain associations with invincibility built up over many decades, the imagery of bold logos also has the same, and will inspire the message you're trying to get through.

Also for winning without fighting, personally I'd go the Asian route and try to evoke the martial arts way of looking at it, perhaps with an Asian style font or architecture in the logo/picture.

Although this might end up looking like some brave Noodle shop.. But this is what I'd go for first if given such words to work with :)

Hope that helps some :)

Superman is obvious, but also comes with major, probably insurmountable, copyright issues. –  Philip Regan Feb 11 '11 at 14:25

A generic superhero illustration could work well, though. –  e100 Feb 12 '11 at 8:18
    
@Phillip regan: Yes, I would never condone the use of the actual superman logo, that'd just be setting yourself up for a lawsuit, but my advice was more to take inspiration from it :) –  Kyle Sevenoaks Feb 16 '11 at 7:46

For invincible, perhaps a projectile richoceting off some sort of barrier and for winning without fighting I might use a white dove wearing a gold medal

For invincible, a piece of armor or a robot. Anything chromed.

For winning without fighting, a robed man (gives a nod to eastern philosophy, Ghandi, Jesus, less aggressive martial arts, gurus, etc).

Chess pieces? The King? A bit cliché but you can infer winning without fighting as it were. Or not.

A little flag on a mountain top, or the highest step on the podium. Those represent winning and a great feeling of invincibility. I see it as winning a competition like crossing the finish line on first. To me, winning and be invincible means to be the first... I hardly see how you can win without «fighting» at least against yourself, in a non violent way though...
