Robert Kirkman expressed that it wasn’t going to be exactly like the comic book. He said he written that when he was in his early 20s and now he looks back at that as he’s older, he sees that he can iron out some of the wrinkles so the series on amazon prime is a little bit different. There are some changes from the comic book.
Invincible covers the story of nerdy teenager Mark Grayson coming to terms with the power he inherits from his father Omni-Man and the reality that comes with those powers. His father is Omni-Man very much like a superman kind of character all-powerful from another planet. His mother is human, she is from earth but they marry. When Mark’s 7 years old his father (Omni-Man) sits down Mark and tells him that he’s an alien and superhero known as Omni-Man. Mark Invincible is really interesting and focuses on him and everybody else is much more like a trope. It feels a little bit like the boys mostly in that, it explores the brutality of superheroes and the collateral damage that you would have in a semi-realistic world.
You should watch this amazing animated series. It was really we done and it was very very comic booky. The Animation is very simple but a lot of fun. you can really enjoy it and pacing in this there’s something happening every 5 to 10 minutes. Soi would really recommend this and lots of nice twists and turns. This is definitely worth watching.
