Amazon Prime video hits the Jackpot with Invincible. Not only it’s first season is a success, it’s lead actor Steven Yeun got a more mainstream after the success of his movie Manari. This animated adaptation of an Image comic original makes me feel all giddy with all that quality content.
Three seasons will be enough to cover the whole run of the original comics. Unless we will have truckload fillers like the Shounen genre animes.
Invincible is about a boy Mark Grayson who is the son of the most powerful superhero on earth. Invincible is not your Ma and Pa’s superhero show. If you like “the boys” you will not loathe this show.
Now all the eight episodes of the first season are complete, it is time to catch up and binge the first season.
Invincible doesn’t take itself seriously because it has a lot of comedy despite of the dark theme. The support characters also gets to shine on their own because they have their own side stories. So it is not like those shows where the support characters got nerfed just to make sure the protagonist shines.
Robert Kirkman of the Walking dead franchise made this so this. Some of the cast members of the Walking dead are also on this show.I mean I already mentioned Steven Yeun who played Glenn Rhee. Now he is the lead of a Superhero show.
The unpredictability of this show made it worth watching. Also every episode I am in awe because of surprises and twists that made sense. I am not giving much details about the show because it could be a faithful adaptation of the comics and I don’t want to spoil things.
I am glad that this show is guaranteed safe for three seasons because Netflix had betrayed me too much with cancellations.
