Invincible fans were given just half of season 2 in November, but now it is finally time for that second half to come to Prime Video. So was it worth the wait? We can say without a shadow of a doubt that yes, it absolutely was. If you thought the season 2 part 1 was bloody, suspenseful, intense, and full of drama just wait until you see Invincible season 2 part 2.

Invincible Season 2 Episode 5 sees Mark struggling on Thraxa to not only clean up the mess he and his father made, but to figure out who he is as a person. He has a new half-brother now, but should he care? Should he protect him? There are so many questions swirling through his mind. At the same time, he has been away from Earth for far too long, which is certainly putting a strain on his relationships there. And what about school? The time has come for Mark to make some difficult decisions.

It is very hard to fully dive into these four final episodes of Invincible season 2 without mentioning spoilers, but just know that emotions are dialed up to eleven in every aspect of this series. Not only is there a lot of drama, there are a lot of completely shocking moments. Ones that will leave viewers (especially those with little to no Invincible comic book knowledge) with their jaws on the floor. 

This season is packed to the brim with blood and gore, but also with quite the emotional roller coaster. As seen in the trailer, there are losses here, unexpected ones that will hit fans right in the gut.

Invincible Season 2 Part 2 review

Angstrom Levy was set up as a powerful and strong villain in Invincible Season 2 Part 1, and that continues in the second half of the season. While he isn’t in the show a lot, when he is, he proves that he is not one to be messed with. As for the Guardians, they have a lot on their plate as well. Their plotlines aren’t always intertwined with Mark’s, and the story really shines when it focuses on them. 

As we have seen time and time again, Invincible really is a series about Mark getting his butt kicked. That doesn’t stop in season 2 part 2. Perhaps this is because he pulls his punches a lot, not wanting to hurt someone enough to kill them. Or perhaps he just isn’t strong enough yet. In these four episodes there is a lot more of him getting hurt, but at the same time he is truly growing as a person, spending a lot of his time weighing what matters most in his life.

As said above, there is not a whole lot that can be discussed about Invincible Season 2 Part 2 without revealing too many details and spoilers. Just know that it was worth the wait, delivering many unexpected and shocking reveals, a whole lot of blood and gore, and sending viewers on emotional roller coaster after emotional roller coaster.

The animation remains top notch and you know that Invincible title cards pop up in the best places. The season 2 finale ending will have fans begging for more. Hopefully we don’t have to wait as long for season 3 as did for season 2.

About Invincible Season 2 Part 2

Based on the groundbreaking comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, the story revolves around 18-year-old Mark Grayson, who’s just like every other guy his age—except his father is (or was) the most powerful superhero on the planet.

Still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season One, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear – that he might become his father without even knowing it.

The second half of its eight-episode season will return to Prime Video on March 14, with new episodes airing weekly.
