The character started out annoying and ended up aggressively stupid. I don't remember feeling that way reading the comics but it has been a decade plus, so there's that. Mark's pity party also seemed super self-indulgent, which was probably more inline with the comics but on-screen it was annoying, too.

Series is great, though, and everything is on-point for the most part; nothing I notice long enough in the flow of the show to complain about. It's really like the comics come to life; they have captured the spirit pretty precisely. Cecil is great and exactly and I heard him in my head all those years ago.
I really enjoy the show for sure, and my complaints are not deal breakers. I dunno what went wrong, but I've said before that my main issue is the delivery of the female actors in this show. There's something off with the direction, like the director was incapable of telling them their first take was bad or something. That made it very easy to discount amber as a charcter and start skipping her stuff fairly early on. I don't skip asian wife, cause her content is at least interesting.

It's a good show, definitely worth people's time.

Concur. Finding myself watching this more for the supporting chars than for Invincible.

It's such great flavor and makes this world and take so good. So much world-building has to be done in this first season, its kind of Luke-on-Tatooine *so far*. Mark really comes into his own as the story develops, IIRC, though. It seemed like Kirkman got bored and ran out of places to go before the end of the whole run but that is a LOOOOONG way off. So many arcs before it gets mediocre and they have a lot to choose from. Even then, the stuff I didn't like in the comic might fit into the show better, given a different spin/setup/take.

Havent really liked the Rex Splode character, but the “Godamit Robot! Will please stop fucking me up?” Made me laugh out loud.

And not that I’m defending Amber’s character or whatever her name is, but her knowing and acting like she didnt and getting mad at the excuses isn’t unbelievable. I know I have caught my kid in a lie and gave him plenty of times to come clean before I finally called him on his shit. That’s how I took what she did. She knew. Wanted to feel like she was important enough for him to tell her and by the time he did, it was too late.

Ya, not totally unbelievable. I’ve been in a relationship where I was expected to know something was the matter, but wasn’t told by them because me knowing that was the whole “point”. So this isn’t far off lol

Why did omni even struggle with immortal for that long?

It’s kind of like when you decide to have some mostly consensual sex with the woman you have been stalking and the first minute she is definitely playing hard to get, but then you get frustrated enough to exert your dominance and power through playful resistance within 15 seconds.

Omni-Man finally got frustrated.

Consider what Omni just went through

1) Orbital Ion Beam cannon
2) Cyborgs attacking him
3) Cthulu Monster attacking him
4) Then Immortal blindsides him AND Omni exposes himself to getting hit when he tries to help Mark

They've already established that Omni can get worn down (Donald even comments in an earlier episode that he had never seen Omni on the ropes before vs the Cthulu thing the first time).

the whole thing with amber is just... this is what immature people do in relationships. amber figures out she's dating a superhero and instead of understanding the kind of stress he might be under being a brand new superhero, she makes it all about her. every moment she spends focusing on his needs is a chore and she knows it. but instead of just talking to him about the issue or breaking up with him, she just keeps handing him more rope to hang himself. and mark is just so happy to be kissing a girl that he's willing to be walked all over. it's super frustrating for people to watch because we are all intimately familiar with it on one side or another. you may not realize that's the issue, but your brain does.

it's like when you're playing wow and you're running to the quest objective and some retard cotoye knocks you off your mount. omni-man was trying to just get to mark to help him with cthulu but immortal kept dazing him out of flight mode.

Yeah, you'd think SHE would be the strongest, and be able to take on pretty much any of the threats.
She doesn't.
She doesn't die.. But, She never really stands out either, for the logic of what her powers are, and the level she is shown using them from time to time. theres never any reason for why she can't just tear a Viltrimite, or whatever apart molecule by molecule. or copy any of the super metal alloys that are capable of standing up to them.

Dunno if its supposed to be an aspect of her just not really wanting to do the superhero thing. or, if it was Kirkman not wanting the spotlight on her too much. or him, not really thinking through what the scope of her powers are.

Molecule man is one of the powerful guys in Marvel. the reality stone is one of the most powerful infinity stones by itself..

It's explained in comic, somewhat. She has mental issues that keep her from using her powers to their full extent, except if she dies. Then her powers kick in and revive her.

I do wonder if they'll even bother using that comic sidestory for Eve in the show. They've already shown her to be able to alter living things in the episode where she was making trees and crops grow
