Our newest favorite superheroes need to have a serious talk with their loved ones. Instead, audiences get the best action and comedic moments yet in the series.

There are a lot of big reveals this week. From Robot’s true scientifically frightening intentions and Debbie’s empowering conclusion on what Omniman has done, there’s a ton to unpack.

Yet what makes all of this go down smoothly is the simple heartache that Mark feels due to his break-up with Amber. I love that the creators play with the classic troupe of superhero identity only to twist the reveal into something new. Mark may be Invincible on the outside, but on the inside, he’s a scared teenager suffering through his first break-up. That theme is the heartbeat of this ultra-violent episode.

After one bad episode, INVINCIBLE returns to its indestructible form. It continues to be the best new TV show so far in 2021. The build-up to the big showdown between OmniMan and Invincible is next week and I cannot wait.

It’s available on Amazon Prime Video.
