Omni-Man’s Absence in Invincible Season 2: What It Means for Earth’s Safety and the Future
With Invincible season 2 set to premiere in less than two months, fans are eagerly awaiting what’s in store after the epic events of season 1. Showrunner and graphic novelist Robert Kirkman has provided some insights into the consequences of Omni-Man’s absence in the upcoming season.
Omni-Man’s Departure and Earth’s Safety
According to Kirkman, Omni-Man’s absence will have significant consequences for Earth’s safety. As the planet’s best protector, his departure leaves it vulnerable to the impending threat of the Viltrumite empire. The absence of Omni-Man is a cause for concern, especially with the Viltrumites planning to take over Earth. This explains why Omni-Man was not featured on the Invincible season 2 poster.
Omni-Man’s Villainous Nature and Conflicted Emotions
While Omni-Man initially appeared as a hero, his true villainous nature was revealed in season 1. However, his motivations and emotions became conflicted towards the end. Omni-Man’s departure hints at more villains appearing in season 2, leaving uncertainty about the future.
The Compelling Arc of Omni-Man
Omni-Man’s character arc in season 1 was compelling and original. Initially seen as a hero, he was shockingly exposed as a twist villain. However, his villainous ways came into question when he realized the love and compassion he had experienced on Earth. This realization led him to abandon his evil plans, making his departure from Earth all the more intriguing.
The Future of Earth and Invincible
While Angstrom Levy may take the role of Invincible’s main villain in season 2, Omni-Man’s departure hints at more villains appearing. The show’s last scene indicated that his absence from Earth is not a good sign. Although Omni-Man may no longer be a threat, the series suggests that there is more to come. With Omni-Man gone, the world’s strongest defender is no longer there to protect Earth, leaving it in potential danger.
Invincible season 2, premiering on November 3, 2023, promises to deliver an exciting continuation of the story. Omni-Man’s absence will have significant implications for Earth’s safety and the emergence of new villains. Fans can expect a thrilling and uncertain future for Invincible and the world it inhabits.
