If you can manage to hang on to his twists and turns, you’ll find a series moving at great speed to embody varying degrees of superhero cynicism, sometimes all at once. Funny, stimulating and emotionally intelligent – seriously, Sandra Oh is wreaking havoc here. – 5/5

According to Slant Magazine

Invincible manages to recapture what the current superhero glut has lost sight of: the pleasure superheroes must feel when wielding their powers. Not that sacred satisfaction of helping the oppressed, but the thrills that come from being able to fly in the sky and inflict injury on those who deserve it. The series still uses music and sound intelligently to get you on board with the physical sensations of its heroes. – 4.5 / 5

Invincible strikes the right balance: by acknowledging that this experience turns Mark upside down, including the typical scenes of a hero’s journey (failed landings that have real repercussions, grueling practice sessions that raise questions about what kind of lessons that Nathan teaches his son, and scenes in which Mark befriends other teens with similar abilities), and moving the story forward so that it also focuses on other characters. – 4/5

Alert, with its hour-long episodes, this animated series manages to be both devious and serious in one breath. What anchors Invincible and allows it to remain convincing is its cast, packed with talent. – 4/5

While it’s too early to say exactly what it will look like as a season, and even more so as a series, Invincible should be able to leave its viewers on their toes – for good reason – at a time when much of television is going on. said “ambitious” seems far too predictable. – 4/5

According to the San Francisco Chronicle

Without going so far as to say it’s grainy, this seems like the right kind of animated super-series for an era marked by Zack Snyder’s grim reconstruction of Justice League, or the other ultra-pathological take on the genre by Amazon, The Boys. It’s seemingly as clean as the programs we grew up with, but with the dirtier things we secretly wanted to see. – 4/5

According to Première

A funny interstellar high school comedy darker than it looks, with a chunky vocal cast (Steven Yeun, JK Simmons, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Mark Hamill, Jon Hamm, Ezra Miller … N ‘ throw in more!). And if the animation regularly lacks dynamism, it makes up for in action scenes absolutely insane and generous in hemoglobin. Pure fun. – 3.5 / 5

According to CNN

Amazon already has some scathing satire on out-of-control superheroes, The Boys, which quickly became his signature series. Animated series which generally follows the same main lines, Invincible seems a bit redundant, even if the first episodes, primarily intended for adults, provide the same visceral shivers. – 3.5 / 5

According to Large Screen

After these first three promising episodes, it seems clear that Invincible wants to keep the aura of the comics from which it is drawn, but by focusing on the essentials. Now that the rhythm is set and the characters are presented (…) the storyline should continue to gain momentum, with even more characters and twists. Despite its technical limitations, the series has plenty to seduce and has everything it takes to become a little gem of super-heroic adaptation. We hope that the rest of the season will be up to the task. – 3.5 / 5

According to Rolling Stone

If Amazon presents it as an animated series for adults, it is above all because there is a lot of blood and swear words. The designs (based on those of Cory Walker in the comic books) and most of the characterizations and plot make it more like a series for all ages – but a good one, in the genre – until a head explodes on the screen … It is still fun, and [Steven] Yeun, [J.K.] Simmons and [Sandra] Oh are a very strong central trio. – 3.5 / 5

The lively performances of the cast fail to compensate for the series’ fatally slow pace, which makes it feel like a 30-minute episode has been stretched to last 45. (The Hollywood Reporter)

According to Vulture

The series has this side “eight hour film” palpable, where the idea is that everything will come together, at the end, in this glorious and great captivating story. But the flip side is that it makes the first few episodes weaker. There are so many characters and plot threads to unravel that it’s hard to know what to invest in as a viewer. – 3/5

According to The Independent

Some of the characters [de la série] are uninhibited parodies (like the facsimile of Batman that is Darkwing, for example), and you can easily find elements that had been developed in Watchmen, The Incredibles, The Fantastic School or Misfits. But its premises have a pretty solid backbone, and contain just the right amount of subversion to ignore the fact that its story has been seen a hundred times before. – 3/5

According to The Hollywood Reporter

The vocal cast is the easiest thing to hire in Invincible, with JK Simmons playing the abrupt and irascible Omni-Man, Sandra Oh playing Mark’s mother, or even Mark Hamill, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew. Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Walton Goggins and Jason Mantzoukas in supporting roles. But their animated performances fail to make up for the series’ fatally slow pace, which makes it feel like a 30-minute episode has been stretched to last 45. 2.5 / 5
