Don't let the animation fool you, this is serious stuff.
This series does a lot more with the superhero genre than many live action shows have in their long runs. It looks like cotton candy but tastes of blood and terror. It's main fault is that it looks so appealing that the wrong audience may try to watch it.

Beautiful clean animation and character design, juxtaposes beautifully with the horror.
Amazing voice cast and awesome performances elevate this above normal cartoons
An involving storyline and excellent writing throughout with nuanced pacing.
The violence is really surprising and visceral, which is pretty tough to watch at times.
The bright colours and style may draw in younger viewers who SHOULD NOT be watching this.
Superhero Fatigue is a real thing and many will skip this due to both that fatigue and the perception that "cartoons" are for kids.
Following on from the success of something as huge as The Walking Dead must be an intimidating task, so where did Robert Kirkman turn to explore new territory? The entirely under-represented and woefully unexplored Superhero genre of course! (where’s that sarcasm font?) Invincible is the story of Mark Grayson (Steven Yuen), son of the most powerful superhero on the planet; Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). Unsure if he will receive powers like his father, and even more scared that if he does will be be able to control them, Mark’s world is a very confusing place. It’s probably for the best he doesn’t know that his Dad is a murderer and his mother (Sandra Oh) is living in fear.
