Invincible’s Robert Kirkman teases the arrival of Angstrom Levy for season 2. Premiering in March of this year, Invincible is an adult animated series that is based on the superhero comic book character created by Kirkman and artist Cory Walker. It follows 17-year-old Mark Grayson (voiced by Steven Yeun). A normal adolescent, Mark has to manage the fact that his dad, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), is the most powerful superhero on the planet. But when he develops powers of his own on his seventeenth birthday and takes on the title Invincible, Mark starts to discover that his dad’s legacy may not be as ideal as it seems to be.
Invincible season 1 set up the second installment in many ways, closing on a montage of all the villains that the epic high school student has to face. With the information that the adaptation was renewed for two more seasons, and Kirkman noting he has a demanding plan that extends even further, there’s 1 baddie specifically that can play a big role.
InvincibleHQ tweeted a clip of Kirkman talking about what audiences should expect from future seasons of the animated series. Specifically, the tweet concentrated on the fact that Invincible might be getting far more measurements. You may take a look at the clip, which features Kirkman mentioning Angstrom Levy directly, below.

From the comics, Angstrom Levy is a guy with the ability to travel to alternate realities. Though little is known about when and how he increases those powers, he blames Invincible for becoming disfigured and appears as a major recurring threat to the personality. He’s kidnapped Mark’s mother and younger brother, and he has used his powers to send Mark into numerous alternate realities, including an experience with Spider-Man at a crossover saga. Levy also emerges at a later stage with the design of recruiting evil versions of Invincible from other realities to damage Mark’s public image.
It’s hard to tell, now, which narrative Kirkman and his collaborators hope to tell when they accommodate Levy for the coming seasons of Invincible. Still, given how Kirkman has talked openly about the worth of diverging in the source material, it is possible that Levy isn’t wholly antagonistic at first. Perhaps he could even show Mark a measurement in which Omni-Man never accepted such a horrifically villainous turn, instead of remaining as a devoted dad and husband. Alternatively, it might be the situation that the character is going to be the next big villain for seasons to come. However, regardless of which direction Invincible goes, it is clear that Angstrom Levy will have a key role to play in what comes next.
