Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the main character in this superhero series uses violence to defend himself in a dangerous world that's rife with corruption. But even though there are intense explosions, shootings, and hand-to-hand combat, there's surprisingly little blood. There's also some infrequent, low-level swearing, mostly in the form of "damn," and some mild allusions to sex and social drinking.

Sexual Content

Some mild sexual tension between characters, along with some kissing.


Mid-level fantasy violence with minimal blood, in the form of punching, shooting, poisoning, and explosions, etc.


Infrequent use of words like "damn."

Social Behavior

Truth, justice, and family are the three most important values at play. Some evil deeds go undetected, but there's a sense that bad guys will pay in the end.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Infrequent social drinking.
