Invincible, Episode 01 - part 04

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 all 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.

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.

Yeah, but see, that's what I'm worried about. I'm nothing like Dad. I'm more like you. I'm nothing special. Oh...

Like a knife to the heart with this one.

Ah... crap.

You know what I mean.

After everything he's done, how could I possibly live up to all that?

Who says you have to?

You don't have to be the greatest Omni-Man ever. You just have to be the greatest you.

And what if the greatest me isn't enough? Mark, you stupid boy.

How could the greatest you not be enough?

Thank you.

I love my boring,

powerless, everyday, run-of-the-mill Mom.

And I love my asshole son.

You seem tired.

I'm fine. Just got... a lot on my mind, I guess.

Oh, yeah?

So, what is it?

You're just gonna keep prying if I'm evasive at all, so, um... I'm scared, Dad. What if I can't do this? You hear it?

I do.

Get ready.

Were you nervous?

A little.

But you caught it?

I did.

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?

Yeah.

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.

Got it.

Okay, kid.

Let's get to work. ♪ I was born on the wrong side of the train tracks ♪

♪ I was raised with the strap across my back ♪

♪ Lay me on my side or hold me up to the light ♪

♪ Yeah ♪

♪ I was burned by the cold kiss of a vampire ♪

♪ I was bit by the whisper of a soft liar ♪

♪ Any good friend of yours is a good friend of mine ♪

♪ Broken boy ♪

♪ How does it feel? ♪ Broken boy ♪

♪ How does it feel? How does it feel? ♪ Tell me why I'm forced to live in this skin ♪ ♪ Tell me why I was born to live in this skin ♪

♪ I'm an alien Not just an alien ♪ ♪ Oh! Crap.

You guys think you might have bitten off

more than you can chew?

That building has a hole in it, look!

Shit!

Whoa...

All clear?

Whoo!

Ow!

Huh?

You might as well give up.

I'm... 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.

He's got a whole ocean of friends, but you're right, I'll... Run!

I want to see fear in your eyes!

The same fear...

What is this?

I do my best

to make friends with the guy.

Josef!

You promised!

Huh?

Oh, crap.

How is this going to work

if I can't hold your interest through one conversation? 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.

Hmm.

You mean that?

I do.

That's... Guardians emergency.

I'm so very sorry. I understand.

Go.

Denver is toast, Immortal!

I'm going out, and I'm taking the whole city with me! I've lined my suit with plutonium!

When in doubt, throw them into space.

Huh?

Finally, some action!

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.

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.

Don't you do enough for the world? None of us do.

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?

I am fine.

We did it.

I'd never expanded myself to that extent. That was... intense.

Aw, man, take me with you.

Come on, I can help!

No, Nikki.

You know Guardians' business is too dangerous for human children.

Oh, man...

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. Uh, great work, everyone!

We're in. Uh... Sam?

What?

Darkwing.

Don't worry about him. He can't be everywhere. 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.

We look like rats to you?

I'll check back with you tomorrow. Wing Jet.

Darkwing,

why did you call us here?

Me?

So none of us signaled the alert?

Oh, god, what's going on? Is it bad?

Huh?
