The star-studded voice cast for Robert Kirkman’s animated series “Invincible” will be led by “Walking Dead” alum Steven Yeun and “Counterpart” star J.K. Simmons, the streamer announced on Thursday.

The adult animated superhero show, based on Kirkman’s comic of the same name, revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems.

Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”), Seth Rogen (“This is the End”), Gillian Jacobs (“Community”), Andrew Rannells (“Black Monday,” “Girls”), Zazie Beetz (“Deadpool 2”) and Mark Hamill (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) will round out the main cast.

The eight-episode series is based on the comic co-created by Kirkman and Cory Walker and illustrated by artist Ryan Ottley, which published its final issue in February after 15 years.

Other actors who will lend their voices to the series include Walton Goggins (“Justified”), Jason Mantzoukas (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Mae Whitman (“Good Girls”), Chris Diamantopoulos (“Silicon Valley”), Melise (“The Flash”), Kevin Michael Richardson (“The Simpsons”), Grey Griffin (“Avengers Assemble”) and Max Burkholder (“Imaginary Order”).

“Teen Titans” alum Simon Racioppa as is set to serve as showrunner on the Skybound Entertainment-produced series, with David Alpert and Catherine Winder also executive producing alongside Kirkman and Racioppa.
