“Mom? What! I’ll be out in a minute. Mom! Just get out!” — Invincible

“Looks like dad’s saving the White House. Guardians are there, too. It’s the White House, mom. Kind of important. Don’t make me get the spray bottle. Boundaries, people! Bathroom doors are closed for a reason, and parents should never, ever talk about sex in front of their kids! Couldn’t you at least wait until I leave the house… for college! Aw, man, you guys are going to Best Wurst? I love that place! Salt on the wound, dad. Bye! Have fun! I’ll just be walking, on the ground, with my feet. Morning. Uh, just, uh… I’m trying to break in these new shoes. Ugh!” — Invincible

“They didn’t even get into the building, and Omni-Man was there, too. When’s the last time you bought a comic book? Those things are expensive, and they’re doing Seance Dog twice a month all summer. Maybe you can just sit back and watch this? I can’t. Let’s see. I think Amber’s been pretty clear about how she feels, Todd. Look– yup.” — Invincible

“Close one. Huh. It’s about time. I… had a pretty interesting day. Guess who’s finally getting his powers? Pretty sure. Threw a trash bag into space at work. Ha! For sure!” — Invincible

“I’m gonna be able to fly? I’m gonna be able to fly. Whew. Don’t look down… I’m not going down. I’m gonna fly up, because I can fly. What if I cant’ yet? No, no, no, okay. Dad always said it was like a reflex, so if I don’t want to fall, I won’t, and even if I do, maybe it won’t even hurt, or maybe… ah, screw it! Whoo-hoo! Whoa… oh, crap. Whoa! Oh, god… whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Ugh! No, no, no, no, no…” — Invincible

“Yeah. I think I got it. No, no… what? How do you know this? Who would try that? Don’t try to change the subject. I can’t! I’m actually getting used to this a little.” — Invincible

“Really? Okay. Like what? Dad… you hurt me. Why did you do that?” — Invincible

“Huh? No, I’m fine. Todd, please. Just don’t– hit me. Go on. Hit me as hard as you can. Again. Again. Harder. I need something to punch.” — Invincible

“Gunfire… where did the gunfire go? There! Whoa… dammit. Meant to do that. I’m… uh… I’m… I guess I’m working on that. Any suggestions? Doesn’t really roll off the tongue. Anything else? Huh, what about Ass Kicker? No… that sounds willfully childish. What are you thinking? Whoa… oof! Seemed to work out just fine. Hit me. Hit me now. Do it! I wasn’t ready before. Now I am. I can take it. Come on! You’d never hit me before, okay? It scared me. It wasn’t too much, I could take the pain. I’m strong. No, you don’t! I know you think I can’t do this! Hit me, and let me prove you wrong! Please, dad! Please just hit me. I’m strong enough, and I can do this! It’s all I ever wanted for as long as I can remember. I wanna do what you do. I wanna be just like you. You’re taking me shopping?” — Invincible

“Whoa… you, too. Well, I… wait, super suits? Am I getting a costume? Do you make dad’s costumes? Oh, man! Awesome! Wait, do you already have one made for me? Is it a surprise? Well… I don’t know about the orange and yellow. It’s pretty loud. Dad? I like the goggles. They’d keep the wind out of my eyes when I fly, but I was really, like, hoping for something more, uh… I don’t know… iconic? I haven’t really thought about it.” — Invincible

“Uh… practicing my landings? Yeah, uh… sorry about the yard. I need practice, mom. I can’t land well, I can’t fly all that fast. I need to be better. I need to practice. Make me. This is important. Mom… yeah, but see, that’s what I’m worried about. I’m nothing like dad. I’m more like you. I’m nothing special. Ah… crap. You know what I mean. After everything he’s done, how could I possibly live up to all that? And what if the greatest me isn’t enough? Thank you. I love my boring, powerless, everyday, run-of-the-mill mom.” — Invincible

“I’m fine. Just got… a lot on my mind, I guess. You’re just gonna keep prying if I’m evasive at all, so, um… what if I can’t do this? I do. A little. I did. Yeah.” — Invincible

“Got it. Crap. Whoa… all clear? Whoo! You might as well give up. I’m…” — Invincible

Debbie Grayson, Invincible, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Studios, Image Comics, Skybound Entertainment, Sandra Oh

Debbie Grayson (Sandra Oh)

“I don’t have a minute. My bathroom’s out of soap. Get over yourself. I used to change your diapers, kid. There’s nothing going on down there I haven’t seen before.”

“Alone? Who are they fighting? Ugh, Mauler Twins. Looks like we won’t be getting breakfast together this morning. Bummer. Oh, they rebuild that thing twice a year at this point. If it’s not Doc Seismic, it’s the Lizard League, or someone else. I doubt the President still lives there. Not so fast. Come here first. Now let’s get you out of that costume. You should be overjoyed to see your parents passionately expressing their love for each other. Now stop griping. Get ready for school. Paris? Don’t get his hopes up.”

“And a big welcome home to my favorite son. I made some chicken, but I also heated up some authentic German bratwurst flown in special today, just for you. Ooh, a dragon. Nice. Mark was getting ready to tell us how interesting his day was. This is so exciting!”

“So… how badly did that go? Did you maybe push too far? What the hell has gotten into you?”

“Mark? Mark? Mark? What the hell was that? Yeah, I see that now. what are you doing? Mark, you need to sleep. Honey, its the middle of the night. I have work tomorrow, you have school. Get inside right now. Does that make you feel strong? To know I can’t physically male you do something? Is that what you need? Remember when you were little, and we’d talk almost every night before you went to bed? You’d tell me about whatever jerk made fun of your hair, and I’d tell you about the girl drama I lived through so you’d feel better. I can’t talk to you while we soar through the clouds, but… but I’m still here. It used to be you and me, and this crazy world-saving, super-powered father of yours. Now it’s you and him, and your boring, old, normal mom. It’s okay, sweetheart. I get it. You have to move away from the normal life with me, and get used to being… something more, like your dad. Oh… like a knife to the heart with this one. Who says you have to? You don’t have to be the greatest Omni-Man ever. You just have to be the greatest you. Mark, you stupid boy. How could the greatest you not be enough? And I love my asshole son.”

Nolan Grayson, Invincible, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Studios, Image Comics, Skybound Entertainment, J.K. Simmons

Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons)

“You’re welcome. I had him.”

“I’m not too late! I’m gonna shower.”

“What were you thinking? Actually, I was kind of pulling for that little cafe in Berlin. I’ve been jonesing for those sausages. You’ve got school. When your powers kick in, you can go on your own. They’ve gotta be due any day now, son. Even the latest bloomers on Viltrum would get their powers before what would be their 18th birthday. You’ll see.”

“Sorry I’m late. Honest to god, a dragon was attacking Hong Kong. I stopped it. Are you sure? Oh, that’s great, son, just great! If you’re up for it, I’ll make some time tomorrow for training. Bright and early tomorrow, Mark. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep.”

“Okay, son, bear with me… this is gonna be a little awkward for both of us. You may have noticed that I’m not like normal dads. Your mother and I think it’s time you knew the truth. We think you’re old enough for me to tell you where I really come from. Millions of miles from here, out in deep space, is the planet Viltrum… it’s a cool blue oasis alone in a solar system much like our own. I was born on this planet. Viltrumites are very similar to humans, except we can fly, move at super speed, and possess great strength. When our people come of age, we leave Viltrum, and venture out into the galaxy, using our abilities to help lesser-developed worlds. I volunteered to relocate to Earth, and be its sole protector. That’s when I met your mother… and we eventually had you. I know this is a lot to take in at one time, but you’re half Viltrumite, son, and you’re getting older. Things are gonna start to change for you in a few years as you hit puberty. You’re gonna get acne. Your voice will start to crack as it beings to change. You’ll begin to grow hair in strange places, and you’re gonna start to develop superpowers of your own. Just like me, super strength and speed, flight, the whole bit. Do you understand? Yes, son, you’re gonna be able to fly…”

“Put some pants on, and let’s get in the sky, my boy. I’ll… put some coffee on. It’s kinda like how you walk, and you don’t think about balancing anymore, but when you were a baby, you did. You’re a baby flier right now. You have to focus on staying upright, focus on the direction you want to go. Understand? It doesn’t look like you do. Follow me. You can wear yourself out flying. Moving fast is like tensing a muscle. You’re much better off if you relax that muscle from time to time, use the momentum you’re building to carry you forward. Okay, you don’t want to fall, so you’re gonna have trouble relaxing. It’s kind of like peeing your pants on purpose. Peeing your pants on purpose. You know, you spend your whole life trying not to pee your pants, so letting go, peeing your pants on purpose, it’s next to impossible. You are far better at flying than you should be. Is that why you’re so tired? Land over there. Slow down. Land. I said, land. Why aren’t you slowing down? Stop. Just stop! Okay. I guess that still counts as landing. Get up. Come on, we’re gonna try something else. That’s not good.”

“Try to hit me. Use your whole body. You can punch with your arm, but if you punch with your shoulder, your hips, and you legs as well, it’ll be much more powerful. It’ll take a while to get the hang of it. Now, with us, we can freely move ourselves through physical space. That’s how we fly. So we don’t have a pivot on our feet and push off the ground. We can create our own leverage. Good… but try it more like this. I know, son. I didn’t… I didn’t mean to hit you so hard. I’m sorry. Mark… if you really wanna do what I do, you have to be prepared for anything. No one is gonna pull their punches.”

“I pushed him pretty far. It’s what he needs. Are you questioning me? I don’t know. I… I’m sorry. Mark got his powers so late, I wasn’t prepared for this. It changes things. I can’t help but think, maybe our lives would be better if he hadn’t gotten them at all.”

“You look ridiculous. Let’s get outta here. Honestly, I think you might have skipped a few steps, Mark. It may not look like much, but you did far more damage down there than you needed to. I don’t think you’re ready. What? I’m not gonna hit you. I know you are. Oh, son… you will be, son. You will. Let me make this up to you. Follow me. I am.”

“Who are you talking to? He’s a teenager, Art. He barely remembers anything he doesn’t see in the mirror every morning. I can’t have you running around in your pajamas all the time. Not your best work, Art.”

“You seem tired. Oh, yeah? So, what is it? You hear it? Get ready. Were you nervous? But you caught it? Being a superhero is no different. This is the beginning of a long journey for you and me. Along the way, you’re gonna need to do things you don’t want to do, or might not think you can do. It’s okay to be scared. It’s natural to doubt yourself, but if you can push through that, and do what needs to be done, you’ll do just fine. Do you think you can do that, Mark? Son… kids your age think they’re invincible, and it holds them back, makes them careless. The thing is… you’re different. You actually are… invincible.”

Amber Bennett, Invincible, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Studios, Image Comics, Skybound Entertainment, Zazie Beetz

Amber Bennett (Zazie Beetz)

“Knock it off, Todd! Well, you are big and strong, aren’t you? And you think that make sit okay for you to harass me? Oh, my god, I wish! Would you leave me alone then? Let go of me, so I can go find a girl to kiss! Leave him alone! Thank you.”

Red Rush

“Sorry, I’m late! I got ’em! They’re in the clear. You are on President duty. Sorry, I wouldn’t normally move so fast, but there were so many of you that… oh, no. It starts with one of you, then it– oh! Sorry. I can’t… ah. All clear.”

“He’s got a whole ocean of friends, but you’re right, I’ll– I do my best to make friends with the guy. Huh? Oh, crap. Hold my interest? Olga, please. You can’t see things how I do. My perception is just as fast as I am. The briefest conversation with anyone seems like hours to me. It’s agony. But with you, it’s a gift. Your voice is like music. You’re thoughtful, compassionate, beautiful woman. I hang on every word. I do. Guardians emergency. I’m so very sorry.”

The Immortal

“Red Rush, get this guy out of here! Focus on evac! We can deal with these two once the area is clear! We can take it from here. Too dangerous for you. Take my hand!”

“When in doubt, throw them into space. Huh? Darkwing, why did you call us here? Huh? Omni-Man? No! Why have you done this? Someone must be controlling him. He would never do this. I choose us. Why? why!”

War Woman

“We can take it from here! Fall back, help us evacuate civilians! Damn it, Run! Not our style.”

“Get those soldiers out of here! It’s just us. Evacuation complete. Now we can cut loose and focus on taking these brutes down.”

“The new roll-out of Haven Storm was supposed to be free. I’m not worried about the shareholders’ year. I want a spectacular year for the world. None of us do.”

“So none of us signaled the alert? No! Ah! Regardless, it’s him or us. Ah!”


“This isn’t a spectator sport! Move! I’ve got you. We’re gonna be fine. We’ll get out of this. Behind you.”

“Luckily, I don’t have to be everywhere. Only where I’m needed. I know what’s in this building, and I know who wants it. Tell me about your boss. I’ll check back with you tomorrow. Wing Jet.”

“Me? Is it bad?”

Green Ghost

“No! Stay together, stay together, stay together, stay together! Don’t move. You’re safe now. On it.”

“Aw, you’re doing so good. That’s it! Ooh, yes, like that. Like that! Keep going. Aw, yes, yes, yes, hold that, hold that. What is that beeping? Uh… that’s a wrap.”

“Oh, god, what’s going on? Oh, no.”

Martian Man

“Now! While he’s distracted!”

“I am fine. We did it. I’d never expanded myself to that extent. That was… intense. No, Nikki. You know Guardians’ business is too dangerous for human children.”

“I live.”


“This floor looks clear. I’ll go up, you go down. The building is clear.”

“Finally, some action! Are you all right?”

Mauler Twin 1

“We were supposed to be inside. Is should never have trusted the flawed calculations of a clone. Refreshing. Kind of tickles. Huh? You order what? I am the original! Huh? When we crush the Guardians of the Globe and kill the president, no one will be left to stop us!”

Mauler Twin 2

“Clone? I am not! This was always the plan. The president is targeting us, so we shatter the illusion of his safety. It’s not enough for us to kill him. You’d know this is you were truly the original. Mm, I prefer a higher caliber. Kill that one and move on! Your eye is as replaceable as you are. War Woman… please, you couldn’t just sit this one out? Let us kill the President? Haven’t you earned a day off? Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!”


“I just mean, he is a fish person. I think you should maybe be nicer to him. It must be hard for him to make friends. Josef! You promised! How is this going to work if I can’t hold your interest through one conversation? Hmm. You mean that? That’s… I understand. Go.”


“Holly, wait up! Please, Connie, don’t waste any more of my time. This is good news. With our third quarter roll-out of Haven Storm 4.0, our market share should rise by a minimum of 10%. We have a spectacular year ahead of us. Don’t you do enough for the world?”

Guard 1 (Jon Hamm)

“Coffee? You ready for next week? Superhuman evasion training. We have to get recertified. It’s the job. Sucks to be you! I’ll be living it up in London, seeing the sights, eating Indian food. Enjoy getting laser burn. Two. All of Matt’s spring break. The boy is obsessed with The Beatles. He wants to go to Abbey Road, he wants to visit Apple Records. I might even get to see some things I want to see, if we have time. Well, maybe a hundred. I mean, Matt, he had it rough, you know, but he’s really pulled himself together. It wasn’t easy. The thing is, when Molly and I first got together, he was living with his dad, and he was just running wild. Kid was a real asshole. You saw the shiner he gave me. That’s all behind us now. He stared down his demons, and he… damn it, he conquered them. I’ve never done anything that hard in my life. We’re so damn proud of the guy… of the man that he’s becoming. So he wants to go to London, Molly and I scraped together enough to make it happen. We wanted to show him how much we appreciate all his hard work. I never had a kid of my own. I wasn’t there when he was born. I didn’t teach him how to ride a bike, or throw a ball… …but in a few months, when he walks across that stage, and accepts that diploma… …that is my son. Come on, like you’re not crying on my shoulder every time you don’t get a second date?”

“Oh, god, oh, god, oh, god… I order… I order… I order you…”

Guard 2

“For sure. Thanks, man. What’s next week? Look, I… I get the need, but it’s the worst. When I was on the force, you had to do hand-to-hand training all the time. The guy comes at you with a knife, you gotta be ready, but, uh, this is… th-this is something else. I’m supposed to learn to tuck and roll away from a guy who can shoot lasers from his eyes, or control minds, or kick a goddamn schoolbus to the moon? You’re awful calm about it. Hell, last time you sprained your back. You– aw, shit, wait, you’re not even gonna be here, are you? Oh, you’re gonna be gone the whole time? All friggin’ week? And it’s just the two of you? You sure about that Steve? And it’s just the two of you? You sure about that, Steve? I thought you two hated each other with the burning fury of a thousand suns. With what you told me that kid was doing? The stealing, the drugs? How’d you turn that around? Good morning. Oh, you… you just take all the time you need. Why don’t I just make some hot cocoa to cheer up my sweet boy? What was– Steve, look out!”


“Mauler Twins attack the White House? Nuts, right? I can’t believe the Guardians of the Globe let them get that close to killing the President. You’re such an Omni-Maniac. Way to root for the underdog. Big fan of the Yankees, are you? Sure, he’s hot and all, and that mustache… sorry! Okay, straight stuff. You up for some Calsh Crash tonight? I’m hoping for a level 43 chest armor. Don’t bring up that stupid job, man. Don’t be that person. You’re into the stupidest stuff. You know it. Don’t. Guy’s twice your size. I can because I’m not Omni-Man, and neither are you.”

“Jeez, man. You still sore from Todd’s thrashing? Okay, man. You sure look fine. Dude, what is up with you? He just walked away, Mark! You missed your chance.”


“Come on… quit playing games. I know you’re crazy about me. Marcy told me. Hey, don’t walk away from me. What are you, a lesbian or something? Are you serious, Grayson? What are you lookin’ at?”

“Hey, Mark Grayson… …and I don’t see Amber anywhere nearby to protect your sorry ass. Don’t? Don’t what? Don’t kick your ass again? Or what? Are you threatening me? Or do you need a replay of what happened last time, ass? Freak.”


“Come on! Come on, you’re almost there! You got this! You did it! You did it! Oh, crap. Sorry! Okay, got it. Are you okay? Aw, man, take me with you. Come on, I can help! Oh, man…”

Bank Robber 1

“Let’s go! You’re not supposed to run with us, you idiot! You’re supposed to stay behind so we can get away! Shut up and get us over the fence!”


“Yes, ma’am!”

Civilian 1

“No, no, what about you?”


“As you can see, the scene is absolute chaos as the Mauler twins…”


“Run! I want to see fear in your eyes! The same fear– what is this?”

Kill Cannon

“You guys think you might have bitten off more than you can chew? That building has a hole in it, look! Ow! Huh?”



Criminal 1

“We’re in. What? Don’t worry about him. He can’t be everywhere. We look like rats to you?”

Criminal 2

“Uh… Sam? Darkwing.”

“Were you seen? Sorry, sorry. Just need to ask. Prom dresses by day, indestructible super suits by night. I’m Art Rosenbaum, kid. Pleasure to finally meet you. I’ve heard so much about you. Heh. Your dad’s never mentioned me, has he? He’s a quick one, this kid. Usually, we start with a conversation, and I make something custom, but I do have one that might work. What do you think? Can’t blame a guy for trying to move unsold merchandise. Of course you were. That’s what everyone wants. Iconic. A symbol. Something kids will draw in the margins of their notebooks while they daydream about being as cool as you. It’s also tough as hell to pull off, but listen, your dad being who he is, I’m willing to put a lot of elbow grease into this one… but I’m gonna need a little help from you. Have you decided on a name yet? Well, having a name helps. Darkwing has dark wings, the Red Rush is a red rush when he runs by you. You get it? You give me something to go on, I’ll strive for iconic. Think about it and get back to me.”

“Okay, kid. Let’s get to work.”
