Invincible Ep. 1: It’s About Time

Invincible

Now this is how you debut a series! Big battles, lots of characters, lots of powers and lots of story. Robert Kirkman’s Invincible has changed in its journey from comic book to the screen but these changes simply tighten up the pace of story telling and allow the audience a better rollerocaster ride of enjoyment.

As the story begins we witness The Mauler Twins (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson) attack the White House, only to be stopped by Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons) and The Guardians of the Globe who are voiced by an allstar libe up on The Walking Dead alumni – War Woman (voiced by Lauren Cohan), Dark Wing (voiced by Lennie James), Green Ghost (voiced by Sonequa Martin-Green), Red Rush (voiced by Michael Cudlitz), Martian Man (voiced by Chad Coleman), The Immortal, and Aquarua (both voiced by Ross Marquand).

Later Omni-Man’s son Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) defends a girl named Amber (voiced by Zazie Beetz) from a bully named Todd who punches him to the ground, but later that night he it appears this beating has activated his superpowers. This results in Omni-Man beginning to train Mark on how to use his powers. The next day, Mark stops a robbery, but Omni-Man takes him to his old friend Art Rosebaum (voiced by Mark Hamill), who tailors prom suits by day but superhero suits by night and gives Mark a blue, yellow and black suit as Mark names himself Invincible.

Omni-Man later signals the Guardians of the Globe who arrive at their meeting point where he brutally kills them all, and by brutally, I mean BRUTALLY and then falls unconscious.

Verdict: 9/10. Invincible Ep. 1: It’s About Time does an amazing job of world building and setting up all the characters within it. Hints are given, clues are planted and brutality is turned up to 11! What more could you want?
