‘Invincible’ Season 2 Part 2 Shows No Signs of Slowing Down

At the rate this series is improving, it might just be… INVINCIBLE.

The following review is made possible by advanced screeners of Episodes 5-8 of Invincible Season 2, Part 2, provided to Agents of Fandom by Prime Video for review purposes.

Each new episode of Prime Video’s Invincible becomes appointment viewing due to its exciting action and tear-jerking emotions. Despite being one of the top superhero shows since its debut, the series keeps improving as the seasons progress. The first season and a half are some of the best comic book television in existence, however, Invincible Season 2 Part 2 might be the very best creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Simon Racioppa have ever produced.

While Steven Yeun has been incredible as Mark Grayson throughout the entire series, he steps up his voice-acting prowess to a new level for the latter half of the season. Mark is often thrown on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the four episodes, dealing with the “loss” of his father, protecting the world, and making it through college. The way Yeun portrays intense moments of joy, fear, and grief is nothing short of remarkable. He is the heart and soul of the series, and deserves every voice-acting award destined to come his way.

It’s never easy for a story to juggle multiple plots and villains at once, however, Invincible never has that problem. Although multiple threats to the planet loom in unison, each scene feels intimate and noteworthy. Nothing feels more important than Mark and Debbie Grayson (Sandra Oh) dealing with their grief, regardless of how dire the circumstances get on Earth.

Debbie continues to prove why she’s one of the most badass women in the galaxy throughout Invincible Season 2 Part 2. In addition to thriving with her career, she overcomes new family obstacles gracefully. The bond Debbie shares with her son and Mark’s return to the Guardians of the Globe create massive stakes throughout the closing half of the season.

While it’s nice to spend time with Debbie and the Guardians, these connections allow villains to use Mark’s loved ones against him in battle. Invincible, Atom Eve, and the Guardians constantly come across new foes, but none are more terrifying than Angstrom Levy (Sterling K. Brown).

Sterling K. Brown’s Angstrom Levy Is Terrifying in ‘Invincible’

In a time with no shortage of multiversal stories, Angstrom Levy keeps it fresh and unique in Invincible Season 2 Part 2. His hatred towards the titular character creates an exciting beginning to Invincible’s personal rogues’ gallery.

However, while the writing for the character is excellent, Sterling K. Brown’s sinister, twisted portrayal of Levy is what brings him to life. If there’s anyone who rivals the voice-acting performances of Steven Yeun and Sandra Oh, it’s Brown. His ability to bounce back and forth between soft and caring to aggressive and terrorizing is impeccable.

While Angstrom Levy is the main threat in Invincible Season 2 Part 2, the Viltrumite invasion of Earth and turmoil in his personal life still hang over Mark’s head. He’s torn about whether he wants to stay in college and which aspects of his human life are worth keeping. Although multiple plot points are going on, Mark’s journey remains at the center throughout Invincible.

No matter how dire and ridiculous the stakes are, Invincible Season 2 Part 2 remains relatable. It doesn’t matter if Mark is fighting an alien, a machine, or traveling through the multiverse. Regardless of circumstance, Robert Kirkman and the minds behind the series keep personal relationships at the forefront of their storytelling. This method keeps Invincible at the top of the genre in a world where superhero stories are a dime a dozen.

The season features a grounded, heartfelt story with exciting multiversal shenanigans featuring shocking cameos and hilarious jokes. The twists and turns are nearly impossible to predict, and fans will be on the edge of their seats throughout Invincible Season 2 Part 2.

The four episodes are filled with some of the most iconic moments from the comics, and they perfectly balance excitement with gut-wrenching emotion. Although the bar is incredibly high, Invincible finds new ways to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
