Literary Critique of

Invulnerability is not (003) accelerated healing.  When you are invulnerable, you don’t have to heal since you didn’t get hurt in the first place.  Many characters such as Superman and the Hulk are both invulnerable and have accelerated healing.  Superman seems to have greater invulnerability.  The Hulk seems to rely more on accelerated healing. Invulnerability, like (186) flight and (431) superhuman strength, is ubiquitous so only especially interesting examples of invulnerability are listed here.
