It’s Ridiculous How Much Invincible Season 2 Is Hiding Its Main Villain

Warning: Contains SPOILERS for Invincible season 2, episode 5 and the comics!




  • Invincible season 2 is missing its main villain, Angstrom Levy, leading to an unfocused storyline.
  • Absence of Levy is hurting the show, with season 2 feeling scattershot and unfocused.
  • Fan theories suggest Levy may be the main villain in Invincible season 3, as his role remains unclear.

Invincible season 2, part 5 still hasn’t featured one major character, and it’s starting to get ridiculous how much the show is hiding its main villain. Invincible has a ton of main characters, but the series has done a surprisingly good job balancing each storyline and arc throughout its short runtime. However, Invincible season 2’s main villain is the one exception to this rule, with him barely being seen in the season’s first five episodes. This is a real problem, as his absence is starting to hurt the show, something that future episodes of Invincible season 2 need to fix.

Invincible season 2, part 2 is finally here, with Amazon Prime Video now releasing the highly anticipated continuation of the critically acclaimed animated adaptation of the superhero comic of the same name. Invincible season 2, part 2 has picked up right where Invincible season 2, part 1 ended, with Mark returning from Thraxa after fighting alongside Omni-Man while Earth is gearing up for the Sequid invasion. While many of season 2, part 1’s biggest storylines were continued in the premiere of part 2, there is one notable exception: Angstrom Levy.

Angstrom Levy Isn’t Even In Invincible Season 2, Episode 5

The Invincible season 2 premiere set up Angstrom Levy as the season’s main villain, with his major role in the original comics finally being explored in Amazon’s animated adaptation. Although Angstrom Levy did appear in some Invincible post-credits scenes, he slowly became absent from the first half of season 2, with his role dwindling as the episodes went on. Although this was a little disappointing, it wasn’t the biggest deal. Many fans expected that Angstrom Levy would be lurking in the background, with him finally becoming a major part of the show in season 2, part 2.

Steven Yeun voices Mark Grayson in Amazon Prime Video’s Invincible animated show, and here’s who he can play in the live-action Invincible movie.

Despite this, Angstrom Levy isn’t even in Invincible season 2, episode 5, continuing the character’s disappointing episode appearance track record. Angstrom Levy does not appear in the season 2, part 2 premiere in any form, with viewers wondering where the villain has gone off to. For a character that is supposed to play a big role in Mark Grayson’s story, he has barely been in season 2. Instead, season 2, episode 5 focuses on Mark and Debbie’s struggles raising Oliver as well as the Guardians of the Globe fighting against the Sequids, with Levy being completely ignored.

Angstrom Levy’s Absence Is Actually Hurting Invincible Season 2

Angstrom Levy’s absence in recent episodes is actually hurting Invincible season 2, with the lack of appearances from the character really dragging the show down. Although Invincible season 1 had a lot of storylines, it was all building up to Mark’s big fight with Omni-Man, with each arc clearly going together in the final episode. Invincible season 2 doesn’t have this uniting factor due to how little Angstrom Levy has appeared, with it making the season feel a lot more scattershot and unfocused, something that needs to be fixed in future episodes.

In the leadup to the new batch of episodes, Angstrom Levy was advertised as Invincible season 2’s main villain, with viewers expecting him to fill in the role that Omni-Man had in season 1. However, Angstrom Levy clearly isn’t living up to the expectations of fans, as he has barely had any screentime since episode 1. It is unclear what exactly Angstrom Levy is planning for viewers who haven’t read the Invincible comics, causing season 2 to feel as if it isn’t building to anything. Angstrom Levy’s absence is a big flaw, with the show needing more of him.

Is Angstrom Levy Actually Invincible Season 3’s Main Villain?

The lack of appearances from Angstrom Levy has caused a variety of fan theories explaining his absence to crop up, with it being possible that he could actually be the main villain of Invincible season 3. Invincible season 2 could be slowly building up to Angstrom Levy, with the previous episodes only teasing him. This would make a lot of sense, as rushing to conclude Levy’s arc in season 2’s last few episodes wouldn’t feel right. However, giving Angstrom another season to lurk in the shadows could work, letting his story live on into season 3.

The Invincible comic series is part of the larger Image Comics Universe, and these 10 crossover characters from the comics should be in Amazon’s show.

In the comics, Mark kills Angstrom Levy after he holds Debbie and Oliver hostage. However, Angstrom Levy pops up again a good while later, with him having brought together multiversal Invincible variants and unleashing them onto the main Mark’s Earth. This is Levy’s true final plan, and there’s no way that the Invincible War storyline will fit into season 2. It could be that Mark kills Angstrom Levy in the Invincible season 2 finale, only for him to return in season 3 as the main villain.
