The Invincible is an animated superhero series created by Robert Kirkman, behind The Walking Dead comics. Kirkman is also the author of the Image Comics series of the same name.
Invincible features the voices of Steven Yun, Sandra Oh and JK Simmons.
The series, whose season 1 finale began April 30, received highly positive reviews. It has scored 96 percentage points over Rotten Tomatoes.
Critical consensus reads, “With bold animations, bloody action, and an all-star cast led by the charming Steven Yun, Invincible cleverly pursued its source material without sacrificing its nuanced perspective at the expense of superpower.”
Roxana Hadadi of RogerEbert.com wrote in her review, “This is not an entirely new approach to the genre, but the familiarity of the Invincible is excusable in the belief that both Kirkman and the U.N. bring in material. They are the reason to watch. “
“For now, we’ll just say that is one of the best new shows for fans of the unstoppable genre and a worthy addition to the oversaturated superhero market,” said Observer’s Brandon Katz.
Samit Sarkan of Polygon said, “I’m definitely keen to watch. But producers have to work hard to ensure that 40- to 45-minute episodes (the same length as a one-hour TV show with commercials) Start not feeling bloated. “
NPR’s Glenn Weldon wrote in his review, “Some of the series’ instruments now seem less new than they were in 2003 … but the show devoted serious screen time to building the dynamics between its characters on the big screen. Huh displays it. “
Oliver Sava of Vulture said, “Like Amazon’s massive superhero hit The Boys, it incorporates iconography and character archetypes of more popular properties to give audiences something that still feels familiar and inviting. “
