Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this anime adventure series is heavy on fantasy violence, although without excessive detail or gore. The show's anime stylings mean it's more intense than superhero series aimed at a younger audience; while teen viewers should be able to handle it, younger viewers may find it too complex and immersive. As they have in films and previous TV series, the lead characters act as an allegory for misunderstood teenagers, with mutant powers that make them both remarkable and repugnant to society at large.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


Superhero battles involve a heavy level of violence. Action sequences last for longer periods than on some other superhero shows, and acts of violence are occasionally central to the show's plot -- for example, a lead character's death inspires the team to go on a hiatus in the show's early episodes.


"Damn," "hell," and "crap" are heard occasionally.

Social Behavior

The series depicts fairly traditional superheroes in a battle against the forces of evil. An extra layer of meaning is added by the repression of the lead characters as "mutants," gifted with superpowers but shunned by society. They still defend humanity even if they are rejected by it.


The film promotes the Marvel Comics comic book franchise and features well-known characters from its pages.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One of the characters occasionally smokes cigars.
