Amazon is on something of a winning streak right now in terms of comic book adaptations. The brutal and blood-soaked world of The Boys shows no signs of letting up, with spin-offs galore and Season 4 on the way. In a different corner of the streaming service, Invincible matches The Boys' brutality as a colourful cartoon caper.

Based on Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker's comic book series of the same name, Invincible continues Kirkman's success with The Walking Dead but tells a very different story. Invincible is packed with Easter eggs and nods to a wider world, and when it came to the Season 2 finale, things were no different. 

SPOILER WARNING: Minor spoilers for the Invincible Season 2 finale ahead

Invincible Season 2 has a sneaky Fortnite Easter egg

Invincible and Fortnite are already great bedfellows, with Epic Games' battle royale behemoth previously releasing the Guardians of the Globe bundle with the titular Invincible, Atom Eve, and Omni-Man. Invincible is now returning the favour, with the Season 2 finale containing a sneaky Fortnite Easter egg.

Things came to a head between the titular Invincible (Steven Yeun) and Angstrom Levy (Sterling K. Brown) in the Season 2 finale. After Levy had his life ruined at the start of the season, he uses his powers to send Invincible hurling through a series of other dimensions.

It's an Easter egg-packed treasure trove, as the Invincible Season 2 finale gives us winks to Batman, Spider-Man, and The Walking Dead. At one point, Mark Grayson takes on Levy with a familiar-looking weapon. Emerging from a portal with Fortnite's Dragon's Breath Sniper Rifle, Invincible whacked Levy with it. 

X-Men '97 just had a video game-themed episode that honoured Konami's iconic X-Men arcade game, and while we doubt Invincible would have a whole episode set inside the Fortnite battlefield, at least we know the gaming collab is canon in the world of the show.

Expect plenty more crossovers and Easter eggs, as Invincible Season 3 is well on its way. While we won't go into spoilers for where Season 2 leaves us, Season 3 was commissioned at the same time as the second run of episodes - way back in 2021.

There was one hell of a gap between Invincible Season 1 and 2, but with the pandemic throwing a spanner in the works, we're hoping it'll be a little quicker this time around. Yeun told Collider that work had already begun in March 2024, and admitting the "big break was not fun," it's given hope to a fast-tracked production. 

Looking even further ahead, the fact that the Invincible comic ran for a whopping 15 years and 144 issues suggests there could be many more seasons to come. Invincible Season 4 hasn't been confirmed at Amazon, but alongside our wishlist of more spin-offs, the streaming giant would be foolish to end the franchise anytime soon.
