Occult, macabre, death-oriented storylines - not for children

This series is not appropriate for younger kids at all. I removed this show from my household permanently, after an episode early in Season 2 had a woman discover her father was still alive (or, alive after death), even though he had perished in a toxic accident deep in a cave some years ago. They showed a long, slow shot of his glowing green skeleton with tree roots growing out of it, but he was still alive, and was a supervillain - even though he was just a skeleton being kept alive by the toxins in the accident that killed him. The skeleton scene was occult, disgusting, obscene, and disturbing. I didn't watch Season 1 but should have, and I would've gotten rid of this garbage much sooner if I had. Here's a sample of villains from the episode list: a robot which bonds mentally to its controller (like in the Rated R, disturbing, Robocop 2); a villain whose essence is transferred into a "new body"; two drug addicts whose superpowers are based on using the drug; and an assassin. Season 2 starts with human-animal DNA combinations who decide they will rule over the "normals," and by episode 2's Radioactive Night of the Evil Dead episode, I had shut it off for good.
