The son of Earth’s most powerful superhero is about to become something greater than himself: something bold, something universal, something – Invincible. From the comics to the screen, Invincible follows Mark Grayson’s journey of becoming Earth’s next great defender after his father, Nolan Grayson: also known as Omni-Man.
When hulking villainous scientists, the Mauler Twins, attack the White House, they are repelled by the Guardians of the Globe and Nolan Grayson / Omni-Man. Nolan’s son Mark, who is waiting for his powers to emerge, goes to school and defends classmate Amber Bennett from bully Todd. After Todd punches Mark to the ground, Amber saves the latter and develops an interest in him. Later, Mark’s superpowers emerge, and he finishes work to tell his parents at dinner.
The clandestine Global Defense Agency nurses a comatose Nolan in their secret hospital, but failed to revive the Guardians, so Director Cecil Stedman informs Mark and his mother, Debbie. As extradimensional aliens called the Flaxans attack, Mark helps the Teen Team hold off their forces. When the Flaxans rapidly age and retreat, Teen Team leader Robot deduces this was due to a time dilation difference between the Flaxans’ homeworld and Earth.
After a televised funeral, the Graysons attend the Guardians’ private burial with their loved ones, where Darkblood questions Nolan privately and hints at his suspicions. Cecil commissions Robot to form a new Guardians roster of his choosing, given his handling of the Flaxan invasions, so Robot merges the Teen Team with other heroes Monster Girl, Black Samson, and Shrinking Rae. However, Eve immediately quits, still resentful of her teammate and boyfriend Rex Splode after catching him cheating with teammate Dupli-Kate.
Angry that the GDA has not caught the Guardians’ killer yet, Red Rush’s widow, Olga, commissions Debbie to sell her house so she can return to Moscow. Cecil asks Nolan to protect the first mission to Mars, but the latter refuses, citing his responsibilities protecting Earth, so Mark volunteers. Despite a successful landing, Mark’s inattentiveness allows Martians to abduct the astronauts. The Martian Emperor orders their execution to prevent the parasitic Sequids from reaching Earth and destroying the universe.
After Debbie finds Darkblood’s notepad, her lingering suspicions return, and she locates Nolan’s bloodied super-suit while he is away. After Black Samson lectures his teammates on failing to protect civilians due to their infighting, Robot secretly approaches the restored Mauler Twins with a job offer. Meanwhile, Mark promises to help Amber at a soup kitchen she volunteers at as recompense since he neglected her while working as Invincible.
Humbled by his week-long recovery, Mark reconciles with Amber before both accompany his best friend, William, on a weekend visit to Upstate University to see his crush, Rick Sheridan. However, a cyborg experiment of mad scientist, D.A. Sinclair’s, escapes confinement and fights Mark before killing himself. As William deduces Mark’s identity, Amber breaks up with Mark due to his “absence” during the cyborg’s rampage, and he sacrifices reconciliation to rescue William and Rick from Sinclair.
After Debbie relocates to the GDA, Cecil explains the truth before both witness Nolan kill Cecil’s associate, Donald Ferguson, and several GDA agents. Adding a neural link upgrade, the “Rudy” clone reluctantly euthanizes his progenitor. Paying and betraying the Maulers, the new Rudy leaves for a Guardians summons. He explains himself to the team, who are taken aback by Rudy’s revelations before learning the truth about Omni-Man and their predecessors’ fates.
After revealing himself as an infiltrator for the Viltrumite Empire sent to conquer Earth, Nolan fails to convince Mark to join him and overpowers his son, devastating Chicago and slaughtering thousands. While reminiscing on Mark’s childhood however, Nolan realizes his own humanity and love for him, and tearfully flies off from Earth. The Guardians and Eve mobilize to aid Chicago relief efforts as the world learns of Omni-Man’s betrayal while Cecil helps Debbie and Mark by falsifying Nolan’s civilian death.
