A new superhero is coming to Amazon. Deadline reports the streaming service has ordered a new, animated TV show based on the comic book Invincible.
From The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman, the story “revolves around Mark Grayson, a normal teenager except for the fact that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet. Shortly after his seventeenth birthday, Mark begins to develop powers of his own and enters into his father’s tutelage.”
Amazon has ordered eight episodes of Invincible. A premiere date has not yet been announced.
I couldn’t be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years. To know our characters will live on in multiple iterations in other media is almost too exciting to bear! What Amazon is allowing us to do in animated form is nothing short of ground-breaking, and I can’t wait for our rabid fan base to experience it!”
