[Review] Invincible Season 2: The Violence and Compelling Story Telling Continue!

The highly anticipated second season of Amazon's "Invincible." Based on the comic book superhero created by Robert Kirkman, the mastermind behind "The Walking Dead," this animated series has captivated audiences with its gripping storytelling and intense action. Allow me to breakdown the main themes of the upcoming season, analyze their implications, and discuss the potential impact on the future of the show.


The Continuation of a Violent and Realistic World

"Invincible" has never shied away from violence, and the second season is no exception. As a fan of the first season, I can assure you that the action and realism are still intact. The series maintains its gritty and violent nature, delivering the same level of intensity that fans have come to love.


This thing has not skipped a beat at all. It is still as violent as you can remember the first season to be. So for those fans who appreciate and love the action and the realism in this animated series, fear not, it's all still there.


One of the standout qualities of "Invincible" is its ability to tell a compelling story that feels as real as any live-action series. The emotions portrayed by the characters are palpable, and the storytelling is top-notch. It's rare to find an animated series that can evoke the same level of emotion as a live-action show, but "Invincible" manages to do just that.


The repercussions of the events in the first season continue to shape the narrative in the second season. The aftermath of the conflict between Omni-Man and Invincible has far-reaching consequences, not only for Mark Grayson but for other characters as well. The emotional journeys of the characters are explored in depth, adding layers of complexity to the story.


Even just overall omni Man's overall behavior completely rolls over into the season. And a lot of people, not just Mark, are dealing with the repercussions of everything that has gone on.


New Heroes and Villains

As the story progresses, new heroes and villains are introduced, adding fresh dynamics to the narrative. Many of these characters blur the lines between hero and villain, making it difficult to discern their true intentions. The introduction of these new characters brings excitement and intrigue to the series.


A Convoluting B Plot

While the second season of "Invincible" excels in many aspects, there is one element that may leave viewers feeling slightly perplexed. The introduction of a convoluted B plot revolving around the Multiverse, raises questions about its purpose and direction. Although it is too early to determine its significance, it is a minor drawback in an otherwise engaging storyline.


**Possible Spoilers**

The Voice of Nostalgia

One delightful surprise in the second season of "Invincible" is the inclusion of a voice actor from a popular 1980s cartoon. Thats right, Peter Cullen, most popular for voicing the iconic Optimus Prime in the Transformers cartoon and films joins the cast. This nostalgic addition adds an extra layer of excitement for fans, leaving them eager to discover who this familiar voice belongs to. Along with Cullen, look out for new additions such as Sterling K. Brown, Tatiana Maslany, Daveed Diggs, Peter Cullen, Cliff Curtis, Calista Flockhart, Scoot McNairy, Lea Thompson and Ben Schwartz.


The Future of "Invincible"

As we eagerly await the release of the second season, it's natural to wonder about the future of "Invincible." The decision to split the season into two parts raises questions about the show's longevity. While this approach is often seen when a series is nearing its end, we can only hope that it is not the case for "Invincible." The first half of the season promises an exciting continuation of the story, leaving fans hungry for more.

It's only going to be on Amazon. These episodes will be week to week, but the first half is four seasons long, and there's no release date on the second half yet.


The second season of "Invincible" is shaping up to be a must-watch for fans of the series. With its unrelenting violence, compelling storytelling, and emotional depth, the show continues to deliver on all fronts. While a convoluted B plot may raise some concerns, it is a minor flaw in an otherwise outstanding season. As we eagerly anticipate the release of the second half of the season, we can only hope that "Invincible" will continue to captivate audiences and leave a lasting impact on the world of animated series.
