A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Superheroes with generally good intentions protect one another -- and sometimes the world -- while struggling with what it means to have powers that separate them from the human race. Violence is too often used as a solution to problems, and good doesn't always triumph at the end of every episode.
Violence & Scariness
Strong animated violence, explosions, throwing characters long distance, etc. The Hulk is more violent than his inner Bruce Banner wants him to be.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a complex, modern superhero cartoon with a notable amount of animated action violence. Characters are conflicted about their powers and roles, and plots carry over from episode to episode. Not all episodes end with victory for the good guys; in fact, many end with things looking pretty bleak -- and not just in the cliffhanger sense. This isn't a show for kids who worry about the fates of the people they see on television.
Is It Any Good?
This Hulk is dark and complex in the way of modern superhero comics. Every episode requires some knowledge of the overall back story -- or a willingness to try to figure it out. It's often not clear who characters are, and there aren't necessarily easy 20-minute story arcs. Nor do the good guys always win, and many episodes end on a bleak note. It's all well done, but young kids won't find much pleasure in the action. That said, older kids and fans of other takes on the Hulk will enjoy this different light on the story.
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.
