Invincible (on Prime Video)

I haven't heard much discussion about this so sorry if I missed a thread or something. It's an animated show based off a comic by Kirkman and I wasn't planning on watching it but the cast is so stacked I figured I'd give it a try. It's a superhero show about the kid of their version of Superman who has been late to develop powers and is trying to find himself as a superhero. I was pretty underwhelmed at first but there's a twist to it that makes it feel like more than a Marvel knockoff or an animated version of The Boys.

But mean look at this cast: Sandra Oh, J.K. Simmons, Steven Yeun, Zazie Beetz, Walton Goggins, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Seth Rogen, Mark Hamill, Clancy Brown, Nicole Byer, Mahershala Ali, Jon Hamm and a bunch of other people you probably recognize. I guess a lot of people were available during quarantine.

    Agreed! I went in knowing next to nothing and man oh man the ending to Episode 1 is wild. Obviously leaving it at that for the others.

    I do like the animation style. Feels like the awesome DC cartoons. And yeah, the cast is insane! You can definitely see the Robert Kirkman influence as there is a LOT of Walking Dead cast in there.

  • Binged all three of the initial episodes. Didn’t read the graphic novel but I’m really enjoying it. 

    If you like this, you might also enjoy Boom comics’ Irredeemable.

    Watched the first episode after the Ringer spoiled it for me.  Blast them.  
  • I read this whole series a few years back. If they manage to continue with this level of faithfulness to the source material this thing is gonna be a banger. Not to mention the levels of violence that it reaches are basically unprecedented (to my meager knowledge) to "television" and superhero media. I honestly really love the comic version of the Walking Dead and this series is neck and neck with it in my view. Strap in...
  • This show is dope AF. So glad there is a thread for this!

    The amount of twists and turns this series will likely take... nothing is spoiled.
