Dark, disturbing

Though there is overt violence, the most disturbing aspect is the violence to which it alludes (which may become overt later)—collecting human skin to change an appearance—-and child abuse.

Too much violence
age 13+

Great Show

My age rating for this is 13+ as sex is implied (as of episode 13 only in one ep and for a brief moment), and some of the violent ideas may be too much for younger watchers. However, I will be showing it to my eleven year old brother, because I know that he doesn't mind violence on screen. This show is the one that I wish that I had when I was younger. It shows a lesbian living her life (and not only that! she's a superhero!). 13 year old me could have done with seeing my sexuality normalised on screen and in one of my favourite kind of stories. It is definitely worth watching. Solid storyline, interesting characters, and a hero worth rooting for.
