This article contains spoilers for Invincible season 1.

Between new Marvel Cinematic Universe series and reboots of DC films, the superhero genre has inundated audiences with content at every turn of late. Even people who can’t get enough of seeing Loki grapple with time travel or Michael Keaton cameo as Batman may find it a tad bit overwhelming and stale to be hit with the same old stuff. Thanks to offbeat, unique shows like The Boys and Invincible, however, the superhero genre has a couple of beacons of revolutionary hope for the future. 

The latter show is where we’ll turn our focus, as the second season of Robert Kirkman’s (of The Walking Dead fame) comic book adaptation is about to launch the first of its eight episodes on Nov. 3. If you’re a little fuzzy on the details of the first season and where we left off, you’re probably in the majority. Invincible season 1 premiered in March of 2021, so with nearly three years behind us, we’re all due for a recap. Let’s begin!

Nolan Grayson’s Evil Secret

The first season begins innocuously enough. Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) is a typical high school kid with everyday problems. He’s trying to navigate grades, girls, and his future at large, but with one looming issue completely unique to him: his father Nolan (J.K. Simmons) is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man. While Mark doesn’t have any inherited abilities so far, the entire family, including his mother, Debbie (Sandra Oh), assumes that Mark will eventually take after his dad.
