The first 5 episodes of Amazon’s Invincible series have been one hell of an unexpected journey. Based on the comic created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Cory Walker, Invincible revolves around seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons).
In their latest episode, “That Actually Hurt” it showcases the challenges that come with a life lesson that goes terribly wrong or doe it? On one side, Mark has his father pushing him to focus on the “big picture.” On the other side is Titan (Mahershala Ali), a superhero family man forced to work for the crime boss who loaned him money when his daughter was sick. When Titan reaches out to Invincible for help breaking free from Machine Head (Jeffrey Donovan), Mark goes against his father’s wishes and decides to team up with Titan, a moralistic choice that backfires wonderfully.
In our video discussion we breakdown not just episode 5 but recap episodes 1-4, comparing it to the comics, while theorizing what’s really going on with Omi-Man and what’s to come. We also deep dive into the show’s shocking moments, revelations and more.
