The Invincible finale didn’t pull its punches. Spoilers ahead, obviously, but showrunner Simon Racioppa and the team behind Amazon’s superhero animated show — which includes creator Robert Kirkman — showcased the true, devastating destruction that comes with turning a city into a bloody battleground between super-powered characters. The body count was high, but so were the personal stakes.
The season finale, titled “Where I Really Come From,” ended with serious physical and emotional blows for teen superhero Mark (voiced by Steven Yeun). For fans of the comic, it was a faithful adaptation, but for those unfamiliar with the source material, it packed gruesome surprises that are generally absent from large-scale comic book adaptations.
Before the final episode was even available on Amazon, Invincible was renewed for a second and third season. Showrunner Simon Racioppa told us about his hope for future seasons, but mostly, he walked us through the season finale of Invincible, from Mark’s childhood baseball game, to even the sound of Omni-Man’s (voiced by J.K. Simmons) thunderous punches.
