Don't think I'll ever recover from this one

Don't think I'll ever recover from this one

Sharkfan2001

Wait until you get to 8


69ing_squirrel

Yea 8 really raised the bar on amount of blood you can have in a superhero show


DragonMcFly

And for some reason, I believe they’re only going to raise it even higher


TableHockey31313

I'm pretty sure they will


dadbot_3000

Hi pretty sure they will, I'm Dad! :)


purplecramps

I'll still have you, dad


EAB034

*flies away in tears*


TV_series72

Think dad, think !!


HornyBastard37484739

Good bot


dadbot_3000

Glad I could be a good bot :) Here is a joke: So what if I don’t know what apocalypse means? It’s not the end of the world! :D


No-Shift-5468

I thought you were ded dad


Cthulhuwithcheese

Oh trust me, Mark getting beaten by Omni Man is NOTHING


CrestonSpiers

Oh they are. Wait till they introduce other viltrumites.


Blueguy16

Oh in terms of blood, season 1 has been tame compared to what’s coming up


sonofs8n666

The question is whether invincible will be the killer.


idecentminecrafter

The subway man...


69ing_squirrel

I'm specifically talking about the subway. That shit was brutal


idecentminecrafter

Many-a-people turned into a fine red mist


noeljoseph123

I can't look at subways the same way again


giggleboxx3000

I cried.


Ryan-Viper4171

Man...the subway


blud97

Justice league apocalypse war was pretty brutal. Several characters we know get ripped apary


IrishGamer97

I agree, and this is coming from someone who loves The Boys


69ing_squirrel

Same though. Amazon has been leading the way for more "realistic" hero shows since they started with "The Tick"


MaaChiil

All I’m wondering is how the comics can be even more brutal...


GrossM15

You can cut the last word doh


Nukemarine

"Episode 1 - Omniman trains his son" | :\^D "Episode 8 - Omniman trains his son" | D\^:


Sharkfan2001

Yep


Kemerd

Bruh. The fucking. Train. WHO THINKS OF THAT?! I was screaming.


Apprehensive-Ad3448

I was surprised mark didn’t go fucking crazy from that amount of trauma


samsab

I'm not squeamish at all but the way they set up the rest of the episode as a fun super hero comic, the ending had me sick to my stomach. Just shocking


DizyShadow

Pretty sure they did it on purpose and man did they do a great job!


richh00

Yeah I enjoyed it


Shirt_Shanks

YUP, I’m glad someone gets it! I really enjoy The Boys and while Devilman Crybaby fucked me up thematically and the deaths of some characters were unbelievably tragic, the gore in and of itself didn’t make me squeamish. This one, though, it fucked me up proper. Red Rush’s especially. And all of the rest too, tbh. I came _really_ close to hurling.


Diabegi

Darkwing hit me the hardest, it truly felt like hopeless for him


Shirt_Shanks

Man, at least Darkwing died quickly, Red Rush’s looked excruciatingly agonising. And that mace lady’s death hit me nearly as badly. In most media when someone’s neck is snapped, it’s really mostly just the sound effect. This one… it _fucked_ with me.


100BottlesOfMilk

Also, with Red Rush, there was just the previous scene where he was telling his gf/wife about how his perception of time is so fast even a short conversation feels like an eternity. So, from his perspective, he had to endor his head being crushed for what felt like literal days of pain Edit: fixed some typing errors


El_Muerte95

God damnit now it hurts worse.


kowski101

I thought that scene was shown from his perspective, bc thr other guardians seem to be moving toward him in slow motion before he dies


GoodPickles123

It was Green Ghost for me, the way she said "oh no" while holding one of the guardian's bodies and then got a literal hole in her head kinda broke something inside me. I'm also incredibly squeamish when it comes to gore except for Mortal Kombat weirdly, so it hit hard for me lol.


Jahames

It’s the sudden, effortless way Omni kills her. It was so brutal and so fast to process.


AnnaLindeboom

Remember when we were so young and naïve...


rebel_child12

I was like why does everyone compare Omni man and homelander. I was not prepared for those last ten minutes. Or even episode eight


EAB034

Episode 8 was wayyyyy worse than the end of episode 1


rebel_child12

Dude that subway scene my god. I sat there in silence trying to comprehend what I jsut saw


EAB034

I sat there literally slack jawed


ButterSock123

Thats exactly how i felt


DarkAlliGator

I went into it without knowing anything except that it was a superhero thing. I thought it was gonna be an Incredibles type series about a father/son superhero team, with all sorts of heartwarming moments and Omni-man helping Mark overcome his teenage insecurities and become his best self. Oh god, was I wrong!


[deleted]

I dropped episode 1 a couple minutes in. Kept seeing memes so gave it another shot today after weeks. Jesus. Binged the whole thing today. Pretty god dam good. But Jesus.


EAB034

Yeppppp I think that’s everyone after finishing season 1 😂


matt111199

Dude—you don’t even know....


basedgds

Red Rush definitely left the show in a rush.


BattleHoundsBest

He speedran his appearance time


EAB034

Changed that nigga’s name to Red ***Crush***


Rythagar

Sadly, from his perspective it was not a rush, it was an agonizingly slow excruciating death.


basedgds

I thought I had a high tolerance for blood and gore until that last scene was like “hold my beer”


EAB034

Particularly what he did to War Woman. That shit made my stomach do backflips


Zadalben

Train will hit you hard


Icedearth6408

Same LOL


Fabulous-Signal3612

Omfg this is no cap. The last 10 minutes had me like jolly fuck so this is what this is?


Kansascock98

I just finished episode 1 and omfg came to post how mind blown I am


Tcloud

Same with Red Rush.


Kansascock98

That was fucking epic. Like realistically he was there only chance of escaping alive and he was the first out


Redfredisdead

It's been 8 hours I assume you've completed the whole thing, what's the most gruesome scene in your opinion?


Kansascock98

I'm on episode 6 bc I've been finishing an episode, telling myself I love it and need to make it last... then starting the next one


Redfredisdead

Yeah that's the usual response to this show


Kansascock98

The best scene still is when omniman murders the entire justice league rip off, like I was not expecting that and loved every second


Redfredisdead

It does make a statement to the fact that, if you like a character, it doesn't mean that they'll survive


Kansascock98

Btw can I ask since I didn't quite get an answer: is immortals or WAS his ability to regenerate? A bit like wolverine


Redfredisdead

No comment until you finish


Kansascock98

Holy. Fucking. Shit. Immortal is alive Edit: that didn't last long lol 2nd Edit: no one is dead until the writers SAY they are dead


faizalsyamsul

Me at the beginning: “man this Cartoon Network shit is so boring” Me at the end: :o


EZPZ24

Tbh I was enjoying myself even before the twist. The twist just took it to another level.


Karkava

It really speaks to the power of their writing team when they can establish characters, make you get attached to them, and then kill them off horrifically within one episode while also balancing it with another plotline involving Mark becoming a new superhero.


MagisterFlorus

It's easier when you code them as already well established characters.


Jamster_1988

I'd never seen it before or read the comics. By the time I'd finished reading about the Guardians of the Globe on the wiki, Omni Man was tearing them apart.


Shasan23

My heart still aches for the poor little girl who was friends with Martian Man. They were so happy training together together 😢


devilscubicle

Yeah, I was thinking to myself, oh that's neat a father/son dynamic in a superhero show wonder how that will turn out *Oh* *Oh...*


AlGoLae

True, the first episode is so cliché, until that scene appears.


OliverAOT20

It was cliche, sure, but I don’t think it was “boring” and “shit” like the other guy said. Honestly, I was hooked before the ending, but then I saw that...


AlGoLae

Yeah, i wouldn't say it was boring and shit either but without that scene i probably wouldn't have kept watchin' it.


yaretii

Idk. I thought it was pretty boring. I ended up fast forwarding to the end after 25 minutes.


OliverAOT20

Wait, really? You skipped through a show to get to the better parts? But that scene kinda hinges on the rest of the episode


yaretii

I just don’t think the show is for me. Someone told me it was like The Boys, which I didn’t see at all (besides the violence at the end)


CMYKoi

Guys I only read the end of the book and like...I don't get it, he just dropped the ring in the volcano along with some dude, I mean, who cares, right?? This is nothing like Harry Potter!


yaretii

Yes, this 45 minute episode was incredibly hard to follow. As if there was anything to “get” from it.


CMYKoi

I think you're good at missing the point.


bestatbeingmodest

You can't claim it's not like the boys if you haven't even watched the show though. In many ways it's actually far worse than the boys


ZestycloseAd3326

I think that’s what they were going for. It was suppose to be mundane and boring so that when you see the last 3 minutes it will hook you in and surprise you


AlGoLae

I really doubt it, the first minutes in a serie are too important to take a risk like that. Most of the viewers decide to keep watchin a serie by the first impression they have


Techedcheese23

I saw the first episode, and stopped watching for like a month. It really messed with me. Then I finished the series yesterday


EAB034

Good thing after episode 8 you know that season 2 isn’t coming out anytime soon 😂


Techedcheese23

Seriously! I'm hooked, and now I want season 2 right now!


ExplosiveSweet

The Epic Ending of Ep. 01… surely surprising 😂


Groundbreaking-Hand3

I think what makes the show so horrific is that it’s such standard DC superhero stuff until occasionally everything becomes extremely fuck. You never know when things are gonna turn brutal.


shadowblaze25mc

I really felt like I was watching animated Game of Thrones. Especially Red Rush and Oberyn same vibes.


gansta_thanos

Me: Hmm.. this parody justice league kinda looks cool, let's see how do they....oh..nvm


UlrichMads

I was like “this is so generic” and then that scene showed up


BalMer21

Has a really anime vibe to it, just finished the last episode and man... it's really good


WallyWheezes

Nah. Anime doesn’t have anyone that innately evil.


BalMer21

Have you watched a lot of anime ? There's some pretty evil dudes


WallyWheezes

I like how you downvoted it because you can’t take no for a response. Have a good day


BalMer21

Lol it wasn't even me who down voted you. Relax


LoreChief

Lol what a little bitchfit


BalMer21

Right lol


BiteSizeRudy

Hey can you show us how you see who downvotes you. I think most people don't know.


EAB034

Stop acting like a little bitch.


WallyWheezes

Why do you say that


WallyWheezes

Evil dudes that have to explain their motives and why they want to fight and kill. If you can give me an example of the said evil dudes that don’t do that in anime then go for it.


mokas95

Mate anime is filled with psycopaths wtf are you talking about lol


BiteSizeRudy

Absolutely. Omniman was tame compared to a lot of "anime" villains.


WallyWheezes

Compared to what anime villians. If you are going to say something then why not actually have an actual rebuttal with valid proof for your response.


BiteSizeRudy

The Major, Shou Tucker, Griffith, The God Hand, Johan Liebert, Caster, The Chairman, just off the top of my head. Hey, do me a favor, can you answer this for me: https://old.reddit.com/r/Invincible/comments/n7pglh/dont_think_ill_ever_recover_from_this_one/gxfi3yn/


WallyWheezes

There is your response


WallyWheezes

When you begin any of the manga or watching the anime, these villians are already portrayed as villians and being evil. It is expected that they will be brutal to a certain extent. However, they love to talk. Very typical and arrogant villians that end up losing in the end anyway after their long speeches. What is unsettling about Omni man is his silence. Same as darkseid. Darkseid can ramble however, But he doesn’t waste his time explaining himself and why he is a psychopath. Anime is made that way for the most part anyway, but even villians in marvel and dc like to keep wasting time talking about their long lost dreams of being the best of the best. I simply believe Omni man is a better villain for not spending his time exploiting his plans before smashing everyone’s brains. I find it interesting that I am being targeted for disagreeing. To answer your question, I don’t even need to know you or someone else downvoted. Specifically, You believe I had a bitch fit as the other person that replied. I dont believe it is a bitch fit. More or less very disappointed that no one is willing to have a discussion, but rather immediately disagrees by downvoting because they are unable to have a reasonable discussion. People disagree. It is what it is. The problems are how people handle the disagreements.


BiteSizeRudy

> You believe I had a bitch fit as the other person that replied. Uh... where did I ever say that. Now you're just making up fantasy scenarios in your head.


WallyWheezes

You agreed with them. Same difference


BiteSizeRudy

No, it's not. At all.


BalMer21

Omni-man does have a motive doh? He's trying to conquer earth for Viltrumite which is why he killed the guardians. There's a lot of evil guys like Madara and Father from FMAB and even Frieza was going around destroying whole planets.


WallyWheezes

“Mate”. Tell me which psychopaths do not ramble on about their sole purpose and how much better they are than the protagonist and their allies. I’m waiting for that response and then I will look up this villain to further explain my point and the difference between Omni man and the villain.


mokas95

You didn't say anything about rambling shit, you said, and I quote, "Anime doesn't have anyone that innately evil". And that's a lie, even in a tame anime like Dragonball villains like Freeza are more evil than Omni Man.


WallyWheezes

Why would frieza be more evil


mokas95

Because Omni Man is following orders and actually thinks he's doing good. He's just a soldier. Freeza not only did much worse, but he was the mind behind it, he did evil for pleasure.


WallyWheezes

Fair point. I can see why you would think frieza is more evil.


ArcadianCognition

People not watching the show must be like "what's taking everyone exactly two days to process all of a sudden?"


IrishGamer97

Went from Justice League animated series to The Boys real quick.


SpaceMethJunkie

And there was no fucking music


16wongmc1

Bruh I skipped the end credits scene and was so confused the next few episodes.


WallyWheezes

Yeah. I couldn’t stop thinking about it afterwards for a couple days. I had PTSD from it for that period of time.


coveyleader

Just popped my Invincible cherry. "This isn't a party for me either man." Lol


TheWhitedukeofDeath

Netflix better secure irredeemable..


Freddycipher

I literally showed my mom who had zero context of the entire show. I could tell she was expecting this to be some family friendly pg-13 show. She had her jaw dropped during the entirety of the ending.


gabcoroba

I only realized there were after credits on the third episode 🥲. By then i kinda already figured out the twist but went back and watched lmao


Lukaie

Yes, but the emotional development was the other way around


bismarckgamer

You are gone like the last episode of season 1


HeardsTheWord

I do love how it's such a slow roll for episode 1. It just ramps up hard at the end. Then you have the final episode where it's 110% from start to finish


EAB034

Oh buddy, you have yet to see the worst.


RingWraith8

PepeLaugh he doesn't know


Room_116

I just finished binge watching the show today and holy fuck I don't know how to feel


FreakinGeese

Watching this show high was a m i s t a k e


Halogeek1337

Man the ending of Ep 1 ACTUALLY set off my Fight or Flight Instinct


RedElephantWhale

I kinda wish I could have gone in and watched this blind but I wouldn't have watched it unless I knew about the twist lol. The Boys still surprised me because the way the first episode set it up I thought Homelander would be the "only good supe" who helps them


aht116

As soon as Omni Man crushed Red Rush's head I was hooked


FinishingDutch

I went into this completely cold after hearing someone mention it on a podcast. Just finished the first episode. YO WHAT THE FUCK. This is definitely not what I expected, but I'm definitely watching the rest the next few days :D


Wrathchild2099

Reading the series made us vets ready for it all
