Multi-Paul is a fictional character, a comic book superhero in the Image Comics series Invincible.

Multi-Paul is the twin brother of Dupli-Kate. Very little is known about him as he was only mentioned in the 3 page Dupli-Kate origin story. Paul and Kate's powers are mystical in origin. Both he and his sister were descended from an ancient Chinese Warlord, known as Fung Cha, who usurped and killed the Emperor of the Chinese Empire. Before his death, however, the Emperor placed a curse on Fung Cha's family, where the seventh generation of his seventh grandchild would have a family so large, he would go insane. The appointed grandchild would none other be Tsing Cha, Kate and Paul's father, who became widowed after his wife died from childbirth. By the time they were toddlers, their powers manifested and began multiplying, resulting in their father going insane, thereby fulfilling the curse. Eventually, once they reached puberty, they gained full control of their powers, and became a crime fighting duo once they got older. At some point later on, Paul and Kate parted ways, and his whereabouts became unknown for a period of time.

Multi-Paul resurfaces from his self-imposed exile to avenge his sister's presumed demise, taking his vengeance over Rex Splode and Invincible. Kate tries to stop him, only to find that Invincible was able to total Paul's dupes, and now intends bring Paul to jail.

In issue 47 (which takes place after Paul's apparent arrest) the rock-skinned crime boss known as Titan is seen in dialogue with Mr. Liu, an older Asian man with a mechanical jaw and enormous bodyguard. Mr. Liu makes a vague reference to both an "organization" and an "order" of which Multi-Paul is evidently a member. He demands that Titan quickly restore Multi-Paul to him. Multi-Paul was locked up in Stronghold Penitentiary. After an unsuccessful attempts by Titan to free him Paul is freed by his master Mr. Liu.
