Invincible: Kirkman's Animated Masterpiece
The mastermind behind The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, has crafted Invincible, an engrossing adult animated superhero series. Drawing its narrative from the eponymous Skybound/Image comic book, penned by Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, the series provides an intriguing blend of everyday teenage life and extraordinary superhero adventures.
Invincible follows the life of seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson, vividly portrayed by Steven Yeun, who leads an average life with an extraordinary exception — his father, Omni-Man, played by J.K. Simmons, is the most powerful superhero on Earth.
The story intensifies as Mark starts to discover his own set of powers and begins to unravel the ambiguous nature of his father's legacy. The series also boasts a star-studded cast with Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mark Hamill, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Mahershala Ali, Melise, Kevin Michael Richardson, Grey Griffin, and Khary Payton.
Each lends their unique talents to this immersive animated universe, enhancing its appeal. The production power behind Invincible is Skybound, with Kirkman, Simon Racioppa, David Alpert, and Catherine Winder serving as executive producers.
Further enriching the crew, Jeff Allen supervises direction, and Linda Lamontagne takes up the mantle of casting director. Invincible holds a special place in Kirkman's heart as his second-longest comic book series. The original comic concluded in February 2018, leaving behind a legacy that spanned 15 years.
Now, the animated series carries forward this legacy, continuing to captivate audiences and superhero enthusiasts with its unique storyline and memorable characters.
