superman the animated series is not for kids

superman the animated series is not for kids because theres a villain in the show called nanny goodness who torturted and brainwashed some kids super man rips skin off a worm a alien splatters across a ship and doomsday tries to kill super man and it just has a more mature plot to it with that being said superman the animated series is not for kids and the creators confirmed it in a interveiw and i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 13
