Invincible is everything that a superhero action series should be. Moreover, there is legitimate drama and thrilling story to top it off with everything else. It has beautiful action sequences, high-flying stunts, love, romance, blood, bones cracking, a beautifully crafted storyline and much more. 

The most exciting part of Invincible is the approach that it has taken towards this genre. The new lens provides us with many exciting fight sequences, bloody fight sequences with people dying, blood splattering, bones crushing, and many more. The animation done has taken this show to another level. The storytelling is class apart, which has redefined the adult superhero genre.

Invincible is a hybrid hero Mark, whose father, Nolan, is a Viltrumite, and his mother, Debbie, belongs to the planet earth. After his seventeenth birthday, Mark starts developing superpowers like a Viltrumite, and things take a turn after that. Mark shares a typical teenage relationship with his father, but the dynamics change when Mark starts training with his father. Nolan is the most powerful superhero on the planet, and due to some recent events, he is under surveillance by Global Defence Agency (GDA) and his wife. Meanwhile, Mark is busy exploring his life as a superhero and a teenager as well. Mark finds it challenging to manage his superhero life and his love life with his recent girlfriend, Amber. 

Overall, it’s a perfect show and a game-changer. I would not like to add or subtract anything from Invincible. In fact, I am excitedly looking forward to seasons 2 and 3 recently announced on Twitter. 

Star Rating: 5
