INVINCIBLE Creator Robert Kirkman Shares His Views On Some Serious Cartoon Violence In The Animated Series

Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead and Invincible, provides some behind-the-scenes information on the latter, an adult animated series that began streaming on Amazon on March 26th...

Anyone having checked out Invincible upon its debut on Amazon Prime may be surprised to see how powerful the show is, not only in terms of its storytelling, but the visceral nature of the superhero violence that it depicts, which has more in common with The Boys than any other animated series out there. 

According to creator Robert Kirkman, who spoke to reporters in a junket setting to promote the show, this was very much by design. 

"It’s absolutely essential to making Invincible what it is," says Kirkman. "I think that most superhero stories don't really portray that violence as realistic. It can be exciting and it can be energetic and it can be entertaining, but it's not that level of brutality that exists in real world violence. In Invincible, we're trying to show the weight of this world and the drama that comes from two super powered beings doing whatever they can to try and hurt each other. And there's a lot of collateral damage that comes from that.

And there's a lot of drama that comes from that collateral damage. Invincible is a world where, when a building collapses in a city, that building is full of people and all of those people die and people mourn those people. And the city is distraught over the fact that this happened, and that's something that we don't shy away from. It's something that I think makes us unique and will help us stand apart from our counterparts in film and television. It's really something that's important to us to show there is violence that is very present, but we're really trying to show the consequences of it in a very real way."
