The fact that the creators of the project are preparing for the viewer 2 more seasons of the animated TV series “Invincible” became known immediately after the end of the first one. The exact release date of season 2 has not been announced at the moment, but it is known that it will take at least one year to create the continuation of the picture. Therefore, new episodes will be released tentatively in the summer of 2022.
Nolan Grayson, known as Omni-Man, flew from the planet Viltrum many years ago to enslave humanity. But the years of life among people did their job. Grayson found a family: he married a girl named Debbie, and soon they had a son, Mark. Combining everyday life and superheroism, Nolan forgot about his task, but this is only temporary.
Before his 18th birthday, Mark discovered that his father’s abilities were passed on to him, and the guy began to master new tricks with might and main. Ups, downs, bumps, the ability to throw a baseball across the planet – all this is available to a teenager. But along with new abilities came responsibility. And also the desire to become like his father.
So far, the guy suffers only failures. Suffering from depression, Mark does not notice the next absence of a parent. Meanwhile, Nolan sends a distress message to the defenders of the Earth. After meeting with them and killing everyone in their own lair, Omni-Man falls exhausted. The intelligence services that came to the rescue decided that the attack was carried out on everyone, including Nolan.
The Omni-Man is taken to the hospital and treated. Mark with new defenders is trying to defend the Earth, but every day he suffers more and more defeats. This is not how he imagined his father’s work – people are shot right in front of his eyes, and he could hardly save the old woman. Mark feels terribly angry and cannot deal with it.
At this time, the secret services are trying to understand who killed the previous defenders and why Nolan survived when the rest were brutally executed. Debbie trusts her husband, but sees that something is happening to him. Agents also understand that Omni-man is not completely honest with them. But they cannot collect evidence that will blame the most powerful man on the planet.
Mark soon learns that his father is much worse than he could have imagined. The guy will have to accept the bitter truth and give battle to the one who surpasses him with many years of experience…
