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.

Comic book violence with graphic violent talk and suicide reference 13+

Quite violent in comic book style. My main objection for kids is a graphic reference to suicide, a couple of violent descriptions that are quite adult and a graphic inference of Loki gouging someones eye. My 10 yr old watches The Mandalorian, Star Wars and other action movies but I turned this off half way through.
