Invincible follows the story of Mark Grayson, a half-Viltrumite, half-human superhero as he finally gets his powers and officially embraces superhero status as Invincible. Spoilers ahead, this is a story which very much follows the moral of don’t meet your heroes. But what if your hero is your Dad, and he’s actually a supervillain disguised as a hero?

After season 1 set out getting powers, finishing high school, creating a new Guardians of the Globe after Omni-Man murdered the original team, and Mark Grayson getting a girlfriend – Amber, season 2 looks at moving to college and away from home. But Mark Grayson is also Invincible, and Invincible doesn’t have time to be at college and also be a superhero. However, Mark Grayson did get a little taster of the stereotypical college experience: losing your virginity.

"Invincible creates characters that feel transparent and real."

What about the consequences of Omni-Man’s real mission being exposed though? Mark Grayson is dealing with starting a new chapter of his life, whilst also fearing being like his father – his childhood dream. Debbie, his mother, isn’t dealing with the separation or betrayal well and is kicked out of the ‘Spouses for Superheroes’ support group after one of the other members finds out who her husband is. Angry, isolated and heartbroken, Debbie struggles with her identity as a single mother. Other characters also deal with identity problems, like Atom Eve who has a difficult relationship with her parents.

Whilst the origin stories for these characters aren’t necessarily original, Invincible creates characters that feel transparent and real. There’s never just one villain, and it doesn’t matter how high you are, or what superhero organisation you belong to – there’s always someone who might not have your best interest at heart.
