Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated action-comedy series (part of Cartoon Network's late-night Adult Swim lineup) focuses on the lives of a superhero and a super villain, neither of whom are particularly likeable or exhibit any positive characteristics. That, plus the show's violence (including some disturbing scenes of violence against women), strong language, and sexual innuendo make it a very iffy choice for tweens and young teens.

Sexual Content

Contains references to sexual acts, such as "dry hump." Some sexual behavior is visible, including Xander Crews' brief relationship with a prostitute.


Animated laser gun fights and blood splatters. Random killings and violent acts are depicted as humorous. (One particularly disturbing scene features Killface repeatedly punching a woman while she's speaking to him). A lot of the violence is carried out by the two main characters against their own staff.


Some strong language, including phrases like "dick around." Explicit words are bleeped out.

Social Behavior

No positive values associated with "fighting evil" are evident here; the focus is on humor. Both Killface and Crews are particularly disrespectful to women. Some characters of multiracial background, including Taqu'il the rapper and Sinn, one of Killface's "people." Also features a dysfunctional relationship between Killface and his son, Killface Jr.
