Invincible is an Amazon Prime Video series based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley. The show follows seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson, who is the son of the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man. When his father reveals his true alien origins, Mark discovers that he too may have superhuman powers of his own. With these newfound abilities, he must learn to balance his mundane life of high school with a superhero career.
The show stars Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Mark, J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) as Omni-Man, Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) as Debbie Grayson, Mark’s mother, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) as Amber Bennett, Mark’s best friend, and Seth Rogen (The Disaster Artist) as Allen the Alien. Other cast members include Walton Goggins (Justified), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek).
Invincible has been praised for its strong storyline, excellent cast, and gripping action sequences. The show’s visual effects have been particularly well-received, with some fans even noting that some of its action sequences are on par with those seen in recent superhero movies. The show has also received critical acclaim for its handling of darker themes, such as family dynamics and morality.
With its second season set to premiere in 2021, the show has already been greenlit for a third and final season. As such, fans are eagerly awaiting the show’s conclusion to find out how Mark’s story ends.
