Not perfect but really good adult animation comedy had some super funny moments. One episode there was a strong sexual reference and there are a few strong sexual references sometimes plus some heavy flirting and kissing. The language includes the f and s word bleeped and D**K is used three times throughout the series only one of those times it’s bleeped. Violence includes typical superhero violence with shooting and destruction. And a guy is an alcoholic but no drugs or alcohol or shown he is also a drug addict. My rating R for crude humor, sexual references, suggestive material and language

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
