Robert Kirkman may best be known for bringing The Walking Dead to comic shelves, but he also has a Skybound/Image comic book that’s being turned into an animated series for adults on Amazon.
Invincible follows teenager Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who just so happens to be the son of Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), the most powerful superhero on the planet. That’s a lot to live up to when Mark starts developing powers of his own, but judging by this new Invincible trailer, it’s going to be so much more complicated than simply coming to terms with becoming a superhero.

Amazon Prime is turning the Skybound/Image comic book series Invincible by Robert Kirkman into an animated series that will arrive next year. Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) stars as 17-year old Mark Grayson, who just so happens to be the son of the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). As he begins to discover his own superpowers, he learns that his father may not be the clean-cut superhero that he seems to be.
The first Invincible trailer arrived earlier this year along with an impressive roster of voice talent.
