Invincible Season 2: Meet Lucan, Vidor, And Thula

On the midseason finale of Prime Video‘s Invincible, we meet four new big villains for the series. We’ve already told you all about their leader, General Kregg (Clancy Brown). Not General Creed, or General Krell, or any other misspelling. Get his name right!

But what about the three Viltrumites who work for him: Lucan, Vidor, and Thula? Spoilers past this point, but they all seem pretty dead by the end of the episode, so no need to learn about them further, right? Wrong. At least when it comes to the comics, at least two members of this devious trio are very much alive and will continue to antagonize Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) for episodes to come.

So with that in mind, here’s what you need to know about Lucan, Vidor, Thula, and the actors who voice them on Invincible.

Who Voices Lucan On Invincible? What To Know About Phil Lamarr:

Lucan Invincible

Lucan is the big guy who initially threatens Mark and Nolan (J.K. Simmons). He also discovers that Nolan has mated with Andressa (Rhea Seehorn), and fathered a half-bug, half-Viltrumite baby. This revelation, given that Viltrumites are legally against mating with non-biologically similar species, marks Nolan for execution. No spoilers on Nolan’s fate (you can find out whether Nolan is executed in the comics here), but after getting impaled on a cave wall, Lucan comes back and breaks Nolan’s back.

His last line before collapsing? “Next time you kill someone, make sure they’re dead.” At that point, Lucan calls in General Kregg. Despite his guts hanging out of his body, he’ll be back.

How about that Lucan voice actor on Invincible? It’s none other than Phil Lamarr. Lamarr has voiced everything from Samurai Jack and Static Shock, to John Stewart/Green Lantern on Justice League, and Hermes on Futurama. He was also an original cast member on Mad TV, and appeared non-animated in Pulp Fiction, Supergirl, and Veep.

Lamarr has previously voiced two other characters on Invincible: Salamander, and Sidekick.

Who Voices Vidor On Invincible? What To Know About Chris Diamantopoulos:

Vidor Invincible

Vidor doesn’t say a ton in the episode, but he does rock some sweet glasses, and have his head absolutely crushed by Nolan. It’s pretty gross! This character never got a name in the comics, but the popular (?) Reddit theory is they named him “Vidor” because he’s wearing a visor. Maybe!

As for whether he’ll survive this, TBD. But given Nolan is smashing his head on the ground but never finishes the job — he goes to save Mark from Thula instead — it’s entirely possible Vidor will be back, as well.

Vidor is voiced by Chris Diamantopoulos, who also voices Donald on Invincible (and that character has a little clone-style mystery of his own going). Diamantopoulos also voices Thraxan Crew and Doc Seismic.

On camera, you probably know the actor best as Russ Hanneman on HBO’s Silicon Valley. Animated? He’s done the voice of Mickey Mouse for years at this point. Mickey to Vidor? The range!

Who Voices Thula On Invincible? What To Know About Grey Griffin:

Thula on Invincible and Vidor

Thula gets way more screen time than Vidor and seems far more deadly. She mostly fights Mark one on one and even guts him thanks to the knife she has attached to her very long braid. By the end of the episode, though, she’s missing a jaw: Nolan punches it straight off.

Before you think she ends up looking like Trap Jaw from He-Man going forward, at least in the comics she’s got the same look throughout the book. Granted, Nolan also doesn’t punch her jaw off in the book series, so we’ll see what happens. Let’s get #ThulaTrapjaw trending, folks!

Grey Griffin is another accomplished voice actor, and she adds another line to her resume by doing the voice of Thula in this episode. Also credited as Grey DeLisle and Grey DeLisle-Griffin, she’s voiced Daphne on Scooby-Doo, Martin Prince on The Simpsons, and Vicky on Fairly Oddparents.

You might also recognize her (or not) as Arcee from Bumblebee and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Also basically any other cartoon you can think of. Oh, and Invincible, other than Thula she does the voice of Shrinking Rae, Olga, Betsy Wilkins, and Monster Girl. So, most of the voices.
