Invincible: From Comic to TV Series

Invincible is an American comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Cory Walker. The series started off on January 22, 2003, and was concluded after 15 years on February 14, 2018, with 144 issues.

At the beginning of the comic series, it starts off with Mark Grayson being a regular high school student trying to balance out his normal school life with his close friend William Clockwell, living in a world full of superheroes. It wasn’t until the end of issue #1 that Mark gained his powers by jumping off his bedroom window out of curiosity. Similar to his father, he is able to fly faster than a jet, has superhuman super strength, extended lifespan, and so much more.

Just like every other teenager his age, Mark was dealing with late-night homework, acne, girls, and fighting supervillains. As Mark slowly develops powers of his own, he discovers his father isn’t as heroic as people say he is. Nolan, Mark’s father, also known by his superhero title “Omni-man” is the strongest superhero on Earth with strong immense powers. By issue 10, revealed to his son that he’s half Viltrumite, meaning he could potentially be stronger than his father and live for thousands of years.

On March 25, 2021, when everyone was still at home quarantining, Amazon Prime Video introduced a new animated adaptation of the series ‘Invincible’ for their comic book fans. Season 1 was released, consisting of 8 episodes. The first 3 episodes were aired on the same day but afterwards, each episode was scheduled to come out every week with fans on their toes, wondering what will happen next.

Looking for good news on season 2? A possible new season could be coming out in 2022! Steven Yeun, the voice actor of the main character Mark, was previously teasing fans about a new season. Although Yeun hasn’t worked on season 2, he said in an interview with Collider, “I’ve talked to Robert here and there. He’s super excited about it and thinks season 2 is gonna be even better than season 1.”
