What's the story?

MARVEL RISING: CHASING GHOSTS is another special installment of the animated Marvel Rising franchise. Still struggling with the death of her best friend, Kevin, Gwen -- aka Ghost-Spider (Dove Cameron) -- is hot on the trail of villains Sheath (Amanda C. Miller) and Exile (Booboo Stewart). But she soon realizes that she can't take down her enemies alone, and joins Quake (Chloe Bennet), Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub), Patriot (Kamil McFadden), Ms. Marvel (Kathleen Khavari), Inferno (Tyler Posey), and the rest of the team of secret warriors in order to successfully fight for justice.

Is it any good?

This action-packed series offers lots of excitement while presenting positive themes and teachable moments. Much of the focus is on the importance of working together while learning to understand and appreciate the differences between you. Similar to other installments of the franchise, it also features its trademark strong female leaders. 

Like any superhero show, Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts is still very much about getting the bad guys. There are references to murder, guns drawn, and all the expected violence that comes from comic-based series. But the positive messages overshadow these details, and make it a great viewing option for kids. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about violence in kids' TV. Even if it's animated fantasy violence, does it have an impact on kids? 

  • How does the Marvel Rising franchise challenge common representations of female superheroes in the media? Do the superheroes look or act differently from other superheroes?
