Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Top rate, but requires some maturity.

O'Conner perfectly mixes the comic style with Greek myth, even going one better and engaging in some scholarship on the subject, this is IMHO as good as it gets when it comes to the subject. Just remember, these God-types play rough, so some screening might be necessary.

This title has:

Educational value
Too much violence
