Being a superhero is tough – just ask Invincible protagonist Mark Grayson.

Mark’s life has turned upside down since he embarked on a crime-fighting career in the first season of the animated series, and things aren’t set to get any easier in the first half of Season 2, which premieres on Prime Video this month. Don’t take our word for it, either: Invincible co-showrunner Simon Racioppa said as much when Popverse chatted with him recently, confirming that – as in the original Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley – Mark still has plenty of harsh lessons left to learn.

In this interview, Racioppa breaks down Mark’s Invincible Season 2, Part 1 journey in detail, including how it will impact our hero’s character arc in future seasons. He also explains how new antagonist Angstrom Levy is like Batman’s nemesis the Joker, addresses the possibility of more Walking Dead veterans joining the show’s cast, and unpacks Season 2’s shocking opening scene.
