Very gory animated superhero series has substance

Invincible is a series about a teenage boy Mark who is on the verge of earning his superpowers, he aspires to be a superhero like his father who unbeknown st to Mark may not be as heroic as he seems. Although it is a animated series about superheroes it is 100% NOT FOR KIDS. The violence depicted in the series is very strong and results in tons of blood and gore. There are some completely brutal and savage moments in the and are not played for humour. The animated style of the show and the unrealistic comic book tone may detract from the carnage but not by much. In spite of the graphic violence the show has a very good storyline and messages about what it takes to be a hero among others which make for a compelling watch. There is also some strong language in the show. Overall a teenage audience can handle this show.

Good but very gory

The show is super good and has a bunch of positive role models. The reason is 13 and up is because its extremely gory so younger kids shouldn't see it.
