Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this cartoon series centers on a superhero who can control and project electricity as a weapon, so there's plenty of animated action violence (explosions, electric shock, etc.) with few consequences. That said, as superhero stories go, this one boasts encouraging diversity and surprising depth of character in Virgil, an African-American teen-turned-hero who follows his heart -- rather than the pressure of his gang of buddies -- to use his newfound powers for good.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Cartoon violence includes explosions, long falls, electric shocks, and physical exchanges (punching, kicking, and use of everyday objects as weapons), none of which has realistic consequences.


No cursing, but occasional name-calling like â¿¿geek.â¿

Social Behavior

Violence is the most common means of conflict resolution, though Virgil relies on his inventive best friend to help him craft his plans against the supervillains. He's also good at standing strong against peer pressure. As an African-American superhero, Virgil serves as a role model to kids who aren't typically represented in superhero cartoons.
