Amazon’s new animated superhero series, Invincible, tells the story of Mark Grayson. The half-human half-alien son of one of Earth’s most powerful superheroes, Mark gets his own powers at the age of 17 and is forced to confront his father’s legacy — while protecting the Earth from evil, of course. The show is based on the comics written by Robert Kirkman, the same man behind The Walking Dead comics, and features a seriously impressive voice cast packed with your favorite celebs.
“I had like some vague sense of what the characters are supposed to sound like, but I guess for the most part, it's just some variation on my voice in my head, which you can imagine is not great,” Kirkman, who’s also writing and executive producing the Amazon Prime series, recently told Comicbook.com. “So, being able to learn about these characters that I feel like I've known so much about, like through these actors, and hear their portrayal it's just spectacular. And I couldn't be more happy with the cast. I mean, it is literally the best cast any television show has ever had in the history of anything.”
