Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox is a 2013 movie that is part of the DC Comics Justice League animated feature franchise. Unsurprisingly, these characters are also sold and marketed as action figures. The violence is unrelenting; the superheroes are in constant battle, including scenes in which Wonder Woman holds a severed head and also causes a death by hanging. A character is punched in the face until bloody and knocked out. A boy comes home to find his mother murdered as the result of a break-in. There is some profanity: "a--hole," "crap," and "hell." The mother of a superhero asks her son if he's gay and says that it's OK if he is. The superheroes themselves, for all their actions in the defense of the world at large, also display cynicism, short tempers, and a predilection to using violence to solve any and all problems.
