Amazon Releases The New Trailer for Robert Kirkland’s Animated Series INVINCIBLE

Writer Robert Kirkland is bringing his character INVINCIBLE to life in an Amazon animated series, and they’ve released a new trailer.

Amazon describe the show — which is a great example of adult-oriented animation — as follows: Mark Grayson is a normal teenager, except for the fact that his father, Nolan, 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.” Sounds pretty straight-forward, yet what follows is anything but as Mark discovers his father’s true nature and what the man’s plan for Earth is.

In an online interview conducted shortly after the title was launched, Kirkland explained, Invincible is every thing I like about superhero comics thrown into one book. It’s subplots and character development and crazy action and larger than life villains. And just every single thing, even though some of the villains kind of suck, that I want to see in a super comic.  I just want it to be this sprawling superhero epic that lasts for issues and issues.”

He described Mark Grayson as being an everyman, more or less like he himself was in high school. “He’s not the smartest kid in the world,” says Kirkland, “he’s not getting great grades and he’s just kind of a normal guy. He’s got a part-time job. So I wanted it to be like a normal kid getting super powers and how he would kind of deal with that. At the same time, he was raised in a weird kind of environment, because he always knew that his father was a superhero and he was raised kind of expecting to get his powers at some point. In the first issue, he takes the trash out at his burger job and throw the trash bag into the bin, but instead of it going into the trash, it soars into orbit. And instead of going, ‘Oh my God, what’s going on?’, like he would in most every comic, he just says, ‘Oh, man. It’s about time.’ And he runs home to tell his parents.”

Invincible debuts on Amazon March 26.
