This review does have spoilers so please do not read if you are not wanting to risk ruining it. Alright.

Invincible is a show you can watch on Amazon Prime where a young man grows up with a superhero as a father, problem is, his father is the main villain of the story, posing as a hero. The father wipes out all the most powerful heroes on Earth to prepare the Earth for domination of his own species, and of course, that makes no sense at all.

If he by himself can take out the superheroes, what's the point of taking them out to prepare for invasion? Why not just leave them alone until your species decides to invade?

Throughout the story, Omni-man (the main character, Invincible's dad) tends to clash with his father philosophically. The father seems to strongly believe that humans are a waste of time and even looks down on his own wife, as if she is pretty much nothing to him.

Omni-man is constantly eliminating people without any sympathy for them as he views himself as a god and the son simply does not agree because he himself was raised by a human and has many human friends.

This animation is loaded with messed up images and internal body parts exploding. A few things low-key scarred me a bit, like when Omni-man destroyed the mega-fast guy... yikes. Squeezed his head like a melon, do not like.

Overall, the story-line offers a lot of depth, a lot of things I didn't expect and I was generally happy to see a different approach to superheroes. I would say it's one of my favorite new animations, but there are some seriously off things about the show as well. Quite a great example of bitter-sweet entertainment.
