Invincible Creator Rules Out Crossovers From Other Image Comics Characters


In the comics, the teenager hero Invincible teamed up with the heroes of Image Comics’s different superhero books, from Spawn to Savage Dragon to Witchblade. On TV, although, sequence author Robert Kirkman advises followers towards getting their hopes up; authorized points, rights points, and all of the stuff you may anticipate would make porting over visitor stars just about not possible, which seemingly signifies that the tales during which different Image heroes appeared will probably be reworked barely in order that there isn’t any want for visitors, or maybe given generic visitor stars who’re clearly meant to be someone, however are legally distinct from them.

This is a little bit of a bummer, and clearly one thing Kirkman hasn’t handled on The Walking Dead, which is a self-contained story that is owned utterly by Skybound. The closest comparision right here can be extra like Marvel tales that featured characters they did not absolutely personal previous to the Fox acquisition, or the current expiration of their Netflix license.

“Right now there is not,” Kirkman stated bluntly when requested whether or not there’s any likelihood of bringing in different Image heroes. “I think that is kind of the magic of comics and [with] comics I can call up Erik Larsen and be like are you cool if Savage Dragon shows up and he’s like yeah great. When you start involving massive corporations like Amazon, things get to be a little bit tedious and difficult and it’s not the same kind of easy process. So it makes it a little bit harder for us to do something like that, unfortunately.”

17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) is rather like each different man his age — besides his father is essentially the most highly effective superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.Ok. Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his personal, he discovers his father’s legacy will not be as heroic because it appears.

You can see the primary three episodes of Invincible now on Amazon Prime Video.
