A varied and interesting show

Some episodes of this show follow the standard superhero-fights-baddy plot, while others are completely different! I love that it homages and parodies every aspect of superhero media and introduces the audience to characters they may not have heard of (i.e. the Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Booster Gold). I think this show's greatest legacy, however, is the creation of an original supervillain called the Music Meister who has been a big hit with the fans! I'd recommend Batman: The Brave And The Bold for people who are familiar with the DC universe and will get the jokes and references, but it's also pretty suitable for older children. There is occasional, over-the-top violence and even some non-graphic character deaths, but all in all, it's a fun series to watch.
