Everything you need to know about new Amazon Prime series Invincible

Fans of The Walking Dead will be excited to find out that Amazon Prime has dropped a very exciting new animated series today.

Invincible, created by The Walking Dead mastermind Robert Kirkman, launched on Friday, March 26 exclusively on Prime Video.

The seriously dark animated series is based on the Skybound/Image comic created by Kirkman, Cory and Ryan Ottley.

Although it’s a cartoon superhero show, it's not meant for kids – believe us.

Here is everything you need to know about the new Amazon Prime series, including who stars in the voice cast.

What is Invincible about?

Invincible is an adult animated supremo show that revolves around Mark Grayson.

He is just like any teenager – except his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet – Omni-Man.

Omni-Man is descended from an alien race called the Viltrumites.

Now aged 17, Mark develops his own extra-terrestrial abilities – super strength, flight, fast recovery from injury – the usual stuff.

Mark calls himself “Invincible” and meets Teen Team – a group of young superheroes including Duple-Kate, Atom Eve and Rex Spode.

But before long he discovers a dark secret that will change his life forever.

Expect humour, emotion – but also seriously violent scenes. Think severed limbs and blood spray.
