Not so great

For an adult to see their favorite heroes and villains in Cartoon Network. It's a must watch who have grown up watching shows like KND and Nickelodeon. But the problem is, Harley Quinn is in it Poison Ivy who we know hates people who doesn't go green even if its dropping a piece of paper on the ground which is littering or harming any plants. They also added Cat Girl and we all know what she does. Its also a filler show making all the character look perfect and making the show more violent for the attention span of course. There's no moral lesson to be learned but violence is the answer to everything.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Strong girls!

I was a little cautious because it was listed as 7+ but after watching an episode I let my 5 year old super-hero-loving twin girls watch it. There’s some fighting but no violence really, and there’s lots “friends working together to save the day” kind of stuff. The bad guys are shadows that dry up in light. I like that the girls save themselves and don’t need the male heroes to save them. There are some male superheroes in the cast but it’s mostly the girls.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
