Invincible had a great first season. The story of a young boy whose world came apart after knowing his father, the most potent superhero, is actually the root of all problems has left the fans wanting for more. Invincible is adapted from Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley’s comic of the same name. Season one aired in 2021, and after a couple of years, it has returned with the second season.
The show has great moments with great characters and an interesting plot. But people have often overlooked the minute details that shows and movies leave behind. For Invincible, it was Thaedus’ voice actor. Thaedus is voiced by Peter Cullen, who gave voice to one of the most famous characters of all time, Optimus Prime, from the Transformers movie franchise.
Who Is Peter Cullen?
Peter Claver Cullen is a Canadian Voice Actor who is known for giving voice to Optimus Prime from the Transformers movie franchise. Before that, he also gave voice to the leader of Autobots during the 1980s Transformers anime. Peter Cullen was born on July 28, 1941. Apart from his iconic Transformers role, he also gave voice to Eeyore from the Winnie the Pooh movies.
Cullen has an iconic voice, and he made people fall in love with his voice. His depth was unmatched, and as a result, he made Optimus Prime one of the greatest characters of all time just like Kevin Conroy as Batman. His most recent work was as Thaedus in Invincible Season 2. Even at the age of 82, Peter Cullen continues to entertain the fans and shows no sign of stopping.
Thaedus In Invincible Season 2
Thaedus is one of the most important characters in Invincible. He is a Viltrumite who despised the way his kind destroyed and conquered planets. For that reason, he formed a faction that secretly fought against the Viltrumites. He even went as far as to create a virus from his DNA that he would later use for mass genocide against the Viltrumites.
Since he is an old and wise character who wants to erase the evil from the greater good, there was none better than Peter Cullen to give voice to him. Unfortunately, most of the fans have overlooked his performance, while others did not know that he was the man behind Thaedus’ voice. Even if the fans forgot his voice, Thaedus is another great addition to his iconic career.
