The Invincible good news roll on, with an origin episode for Gillian Jacobs’ Samantha Eve Wilkins/Atom Eve hitting Prime Video tonight.
Just when we thought we were done with all of the good news surrounding Amazon’s Steven Yeun & J.K. Simmons-starring animated adaptation of Invincible, Robert Kirkman and company had another surprise to roll out to everyone. Tonight at SDCC, there will be a special screening of Invincible: Atom Eve, a special origin episode focusing on the rise of Gillian Jacobs‘ Samantha Eve Wilkins. But you won’t have to be at SDCC tonight to check it out because the episode will also be hitting Prime Video in time for the weekend, too. Here’s a look at the special key art that was released:
If you’re looking for a preview, here’s a mini-trailer that was released in support of the news:

With Amazon’s Prime Video series Invincible set to drop new episodes on November 3rd, here’s a look back at the official teaser trailer, along with a season overview and a rundown of who’s joining the cast this season:
Based on the groundbreaking comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, the story revolves around 18-year-old Mark Grayson, who’s just like every other guy his age—except his father is (or was) the most powerful superhero on the planet. Still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season 1, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear – that he might become his father without even knowing it.
Joining the Season 2 cast are Sterling K. Brown, Peter Cullen, Rob Delaney, Calista Flockhart, Phil LaMarr, Luke MacFarlane, Tatiana Maslany, Scott McNairy, Jay Pharoah, Ella Purnell, Tim Robinson, Ben Schwartz, Rhea Seehorn, Lea Thompson, Paul F. Tompkins, Shantel VanSanten & more. And during the previous panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of the comic book series with Kirkman, Walker, Ottley, Sean Mackiewicz (SVP/publisher, Skybound), Marge Dean (head of studio, Skybound Animation), and Mike Rogers (creative director, Skybound), attendees were treated to a look at the new Season 2 character design for William.

And here’s a look back at the preview video that was released confirming the season’s release window, with Seth Rogen‘s Allen The Alien finally getting the information out of Mark after some stalling (clearly, someone’s been reading social media over the past few months):
