Who Is Ka-Hor On Invincible? What To Know About The Mummy

Invincible Ka-Hor Mummy Season 2 finale

One of the nerd-joys about a show like Invincible on Prime Video is you get to pump out your chest and profess your comic book knowledge at every turn. Oh, you think Angstrom Levy (Sterling K. Brown) is dead? You want to know what happens with Atom Eve (Gillian Jacobs) and Invincible (Steven Yeun)? Read the comics, bro! And then there’s Ka-Hor, the mummy character introduced in the Invincible Season 2 finale, who has no reference in the comics at all.

Oh no! My nerd card!

So if you’re looking for teases of what will happen with Ka-Hor (Clancy Brown) the mummy, or Riley (Chloe Bennet) and Jane (Ella Purnell), the adventurers confronting him in “I Thought You Were Stronger“… Well, there’s nothing in the comic books by Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley, and Cory Walker to help you out there.

That said, we can still break down what we know about the characters, in case you were confused about the scene in the finale.

Who Is Ka-Hor In The Invincible Season 2 Finale? The Invincible Mummy, Explained:

Ka-Hor and Bryant in Invincible Season 1 Episode 4

Ka-Hor is voiced by Clancy Brown, who also voices Damien Darkblood and General Kregg in the series. The character was first introduced in Season 1, Episode 4, “Neil Armstrong, Eat Your Heart Out,” in a seemingly throwaway scene. Since it’s been, you know, two and a half years, here’s what went down.

In the original scene, a mercenary/adventurer-type character in the mode of Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, discovers the tomb of an ancient mummy. The guy’s name is Bryant, and he’s also played by Clancy Brown. He awakens the mummy (at the time unnamed), and is possessed by it. However, as Ka-Hor in Bryant’s body attempts to leave the tomb, the door collapses, trapping him there.

That’s it for Ka-Hor — and Bryant — until the Season 2 finale.

In the episode, we meet Riley and Jane, two women who have been searching for the tomb of Ka-Hor. Riley has superpowers from her grandmother; Jane is Bryant’s daughter. Upon entering — and getting trapped in — the tomb, they discover the corpse of Bryant and awaken Ka-Hor.

Ka-Hor, however, is sexist, and will only inhabit a male host, which Riley and Jane call him on. At this point, Invincible, who is furious at himself for seemingly killing Angstrom Levy, flies by the tomb, bringing a sandstorm with him. That’s the last we see of all three characters until Season 3 — if at all.

Who Are Riley And Jane? Chloe Bennet And Ella Purnell’s Characters, Explained:

Invincible Riley and Jane Chloe Bennet and Ella Purnell Season 2

So again, Riley and Jane are not characters from the comics. However, they both seemingly have interesting backstories.

First Riley, played by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Chloe Bennet. Riley mentions she got super-strength from her grandmother, through her mother, and is able to lift a truck. She also indicates that her grandmother wasn’t a public superhero, because in those days if you were a woman you couldn’t play hero unless you wore a “bathing suit.”

Jane, meanwhile, is Bryant’s daughter. She’s played by Ella Purnell, who you might know from Sweetbitter, Yellowjackets, or her voice work on Star Trek: Prodigy. She’s got an intriguing beetle/scarab tattoo on her left inner arm the camera lingers on for a moment.

For some reason, the Invincible Wiki lists Jane as being “the daughter of Zaiem” and a “worshipper of Ka-Hor.” However, neither of those things seems to be accurate. There’s no character named Zaiem, and both Riley and Jane seem to be surprised by the appearance of Ka-Hor… They are looking for Bryant, and find him.

As for whether they’ll pop up again in Season 3, or if they too are dead like Jane’s father? TBD. But we’ll be on non-stop Ka-Hor the Mummy watch when Invincible Season 3 does roll around, don’t you worry.
