Amazon Prime Video's best superhero show is back at number one

Prime Video is no stranger to superhero shows. Where Disney has only really started to venture into R Rated territory, with the likes of Echo, Amazon has been happily been pushing its adult-orientated superhero fare for some time now.

The two key hits in this area are The Boys and Invincible. While we have to wait until June to see a new series of The Boys, Invincible is back with the second part of the second series and it's a blast.

Invincible is based on the Robert Kirkman comic books of the same name. Kirkman is showrunner with Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg in as exec producers.

The voice line-up is stellar with Steven Yeun starring as Mark Grayson the teenager of the most powerful superhero in the world that starts to gain powers.

J.K. Simmons is his father, Nolan Grayson; Sarah Yeo plays his mother Debbie Grayson. Walter Goggins, Zazie Beetz and Gillian Jacobs also star.

The show is so good that its Rotten Tomatoes rating is a near perfect 99% - and season 2 is on 100%.

"This star-packed animation is an absolute triumph," says The Guardian.
"This mighty follow-up packs a wallop, proving that "Invincible" is one of the best superhero series on TV," explains

Slate reckons: "The show’s second season plays with structure and tone to explore the violence that shapes its characters’ lives."

While Inverse reckons: "As superhero fatigue becomes more pervasive, Invincible returns, and it’s as thoughtful, gory, and hilarious as ever."
