Before The Walking Dead, there was Mark Grayson

Before he was internationally known as the creator of The Walking Dead and the television series based on it, Robert Kirkman was comics-world known as the writer behind Invincible, a long-running indie superhero epic drawn by artist Cory Walker.

In Invincible, Kirkman and Walker took the idea of Superman and ran long with it, with a story about the teenage son of a superpowerful alien superhero growing into his own powers, becoming a superhero himself, and discovering that his alien culture is (spoiler for an almost 20-year-old comic series?) not as nice as his dad has let on.

The animated series Invincible will premiere March 26 on Amazon Prime, with a stacked cast. Aside from Steven Yeun as Mark Grayson, our teen protagonist; J.K. Simmons as Omni-Man, his superpowered dad; and Sandra Oh as Debbie Grayson, his human mom, other voice talent on the show includes Mark Hamill, Seth Rogen, Zazie Beetz, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Kevin Michael Richardson, Sonequa Martin-Green, Mahershala Ali, Michael Dorn, Ezra Miller, Clancy Brown, Jon Hamm, and Djimon Hounsou.
