In light of my referencing the original spell card rather than the one from the poll, I changed my vote to 2. However, I'll add the stipulation that line of sight is currently blocked from the Wizard to the Barbarian. The spell must have been cast before either the Dwarf or Barbarian had moved so that the Barbarian was originally visible. I'm a rules lawyer, after all.

I think of the rules of the Invisibity spell functioning like Susan Storm using her force field power while also invisible. (She can do that, can't she?) The invisible Hero can't attack or be attacked like within a forcefield, but as a fluffy side-effect he isn't visible. The force field also prevents targeting a figure obstructed by the invisible Hero--a figure isn't considered visible for targeting if it is obstructed by another figure, regardless of the obstructing figure's own visiblity. Another way of thinking about it is an obstructing figure prevents line of effect, just like Susan Storm would protect others within her forcefield. That bubble isn't any less effective at protecting others within it just because you can't see Sue.

In this situation I side with Big Bene' s answer from page 1, the Barbarian cannot attack, but he does provide an obstacle for the orc. The orc would charge out the door but bump into the Barbarian, causing confusion on his part. Neither the orc or barbarian would be seriously hurt, just dazed or confused from the unexpected impact.

Time for the in game characters are not the same for people sitting at the table. The Barbarian's invisibility is temporary and the recovery time from them bumping into eachother is quick. All heroes in game time are moving and actioning around the same time. So by the time the orc runs into the Barbarian the other heroes are preparing to run in just as the invisibility power begins to wear off.

I think it would've been pretty cool if the hero could still attack while Invisible and maybe reduce the monster's defend dice as he wouldn't be able to see and thus unable parry or accurately deflect a blow.
