Invincible: Every Difference Between The Show And The Comics

Vor 13 Tage

As adaptations go, Amazon Prime’s Invincible is very close and faithful to the comic books that it is adapting. This is probably in part down to the fact that Robert Kirkman who created the comics (and also created The Walking Dead) is working on the show and to bring his vision authentically to life. This means that Battle Beast is still just as scary, Mark still is really over his head and Omni-Man still is a massive douche. But even so, that doesn’t mean that the show and the comic books are like for like and there are notable changes. As time has gone on, Kirkman has seemingly made changes to the text to keep it relevant to the times, but has also made some changes to things that he regrets or wishes he had put in there the first time of asking.

That’s why in this video we are going to take a look at every difference between the Invincible animated series and the comics. Including the series changing/fast tracking/altering the timeline, omitting classic and fan favorite characters due to licensing agreements, omitting a full Omni-Man story arc, killing off a character that actually has a longer run in the comics to downplaying a full story arc to one brief scene in an episode. Get ready to return to the violent but addictive world of Invincible as we take a look at all of the major changes!

I'm currently reading the comics and the show changed a lot. There are things that take place in the show that take place way after Omni man leaves earth. And Amber is white and not acting uncaring of Mark.

I think a lot of the changes they made were probably due to the producers thinking the show might not click with viewers. As someone who has read the comic, there are a lot of changes that are nice, and a lot that aren’t. I just hope it still leads to the same ending though.

Im not a huge fan of the show only because the power levels of omniman and invincible are fudged quite a bit in the show. For example, invincible can supposedly fight omni man and lose but it takes a bit meanwhile invincible will lose to much weaker opponents within like 2 punches. It just felt really inconsistent that all of a sudden his powers are no longer as good for the sake of the plot

Personally I don't think so, but to each his own... Not meaning to advertise, but if you go to comixology and look up the first 10 volumes of Invicible, which are free to read by the way (I think as long as you have an amazon account? Plus, you are not forced to pay, just press cancel), you can decide for yourself. You can also browse the web for websites that have some of the printed copies to view for free. Hope that helps.

@betochiwas I'm fine with that, when it actually works. They do not. What I don't like are shows that continually smash together characters that just don't work with each other, and then they explode at each other later because drama instead of just tempering expectations and actually being friends before any of that comes to a head. The show did not do this. They just kept smashing them together and it did not work, because Amber's changed personality got in the way instead of just talking to Mark about the issues directly. He literally could not have tried harder and she just did not care. Shitty personality change made a shitty character. Therefore, Team Eve for me.

Mark and Eve's relationship is way too important and intrinsic to the story of Invincible, it isn't something that can just be removed if they are trying to make an adaptation that does the comics justice that is. So sorry Mark Amber fans but that relationship is on borrowed time 😂. P. S the love triangle was there in the comics as well

Williams sexuality is actually present since the first episode of the show too. The scene when mark gets beat up by the bully for helping ember, he talks to William about what happened at the white house. Will states that Omniman is, I believe he said, "really hot" and goes on for a short while to talk about his moustache. When mark said something to William, he replied with "Right, sorry, straight stuff". These are all more or less obvious clues to Williams sexuality and I quite like how they did that. Him being gay is just treated casually and isn't on the nose as in, pick a random Netflix property, but yet it is still constantly there from the beginning of the show.

RoxasOokami272 Vor 12 Tage
He misworded himself in the video. He *meant* to say that William was openly gay in the show but took much longer to reveal in the comics, because that's how it happens lol. In the comic, he dates Eve so it wasn't shown right away. Also, his phrasing was something along the lines of " in the comics his sexuality was revealed in the first episode", so I think the writers just forgot to say show instead of comic lol.

Actually Omni isn't short for, Omni's a prefix. Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnifocused, Omnivorous, etc, etc, etc. Omni means All, for example, a Multitool is multiple tools, an Omnitool would be all tools. Likewise, Omnivorous means you eat everything. Ofc it's not so literal usually, for example we obviously don't eat *everything* just most things, and so logically a multitool with enough tools could be considered an omnitool. He's called Omniman because he basically has all the powers. He's all powerful.
