Eric Franciso from Inverse. “As superhero fatigue becomes more pervasive, Invincible returns, and it’s as thoughtful, gory, and hilarious as ever.”

Tessa Smith from Mama’s Geeky. “Season 2 proves that it was worth the wait within the first few minutes, as viewers will be left with their jaws on the floor. It’s bigger, bolder, and bloodier than ever!”
Luke Y. Thompson from SuperHeroHype. “It’s the heart that will keep Invincible compulsive watching—too many superhero shows and movies forget to be actually about something relatable amid the madness.”
Chase Hutchinson from Collider. “In the rubble of the first season’s painful revelations, Season 2 of Invincible charts a soaring new path that also carries with it the weight of all that has been lost. Though just as bloody as ever, its greatest strength lies in its characters.”
Niv M. Sultan from Slant Magazine. “The show’s second season plays with structure and tone to explore the violence that shapes its characters’ lives.”
Cooper Hood from Screen Rant. “With an updated animation style, new threats, and a more personal story, Invincible season 2 re-establishes itself as the best superhero show.” “
