Oh yes it was about time for Invincible to return and don’t worry because if you enjoyed the first season, you’re eating so good with this one. Back in 2021, the first season of Invincible made history between comic book TV fans, this show was simply amazing and Prime Video saw its success and instantly renewed it for a second and third season.
In Invincible Season 2, still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season 1, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear — that he might become his father without even knowing it.
So as most of you already know it, this second season will be split into 2 parts: part one is set to release on November 3rd while part two is expected to release in early 2024 and I’ll be very honest and tell you that this was not a good idea…
I loved this first part and that’s why I want more of it and having to wait all these months is so annoying, this first part felt more like an appetizer, you know, there’s so much stuff going on at the same time and nothing has been resolved.
The focus of this season is: getting over all the damage season 1 caused, every single character in this season is going through some mental issues that have been caused due to evens from first season. Mark is going through an existencial crisis, he’s afraid of becoming like his father and he feels the need to help people all the time because if he doesn’t he’ll think that he’s becoming his dad and that’s not how it works.
His mom, Debbie, is probably the one who you’ll see struggle the most during this season… this woman goes through the worst and I really felt bad. Debbie wants to move on but can’t, she was married for 20 years to a guy that called her a “pet”? This affected her in a way that she can’t get over and she is still struggling with that.
Atom Eve has a larger role than the rest of the Guardians Of The Globe, she’s trying to adapt to a life without being a superhero. The guardians are just not very important to this season’s story, things could change in the second part of this season but as of now they haven’t had such impact.
Mark is now attending college, he’s life is different, he’s becoming an adult and having more and more responsibilities and you can see how overwhelmed he gets throughout the story. Steven Yeun shined in the role once again, I feel like he did an even better job in this season, giving more depth and connection to the character, making us feel even more into the story.
My biggest complaint about this season would probably be the amount of unnecessary subplots that are added to the season to make it longer than it needed to be. The amount of characters that had no development nor importance to the story might be something that had such an impact but other than that I had the same blast and enjoyment I had in the first season.
The soundtrack, score, and animation are top-notch, it feels so good to watch a show with some original 2D animation, it just feels so refreshing nowadays when all we see around are movies with stylized 3D animation or generic 3D…
After two long years, we can finally say it was worth the wait. Invincible Season 2 just proved even more that this show is one of the best comic book shows ever made. This season has a heavier focus on character development and you’ll love to see it. Its emotional, exciting, frustrating, and as bloody as you remember.
