Described as an adult animated superhero show, Invincible will focus on Mark Grayson (voiced by Steven Yeun), a 17-year-old with a superhero dad. When Mark starts developing powers and abilities of his own, he discovers that his father, Omni-Man (voiced by J.K. Simmons), isn’t exactly who he is portrayed to be.
With his Omni-Man as his mentor, Mark becomes Invincible.

“If you’ve been reading the comic book series, you’re going to get everything you’ve been expecting or wanting,” Robert Kirkman said during the virtual event. “But we’re changing some characters, we’re expanding some roles, we’re putting a little bit of spice in there to keep you guys guessing.”
