Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this chapter in the popular X-Men saga focuses specifically on the conflict between mutants -- people who've developed superpowers -- and the humans who fear them. Though it's aimed at kids and is age-appropriate for tweens overall, the series has a lot of depth and covers some fairly complex, adult themes (injustice, discrimination, fear of those who are different, etc.). Expect plenty of cartoon violence -- although, as in most animated shows, hardly anyone actually gets hurt.
No sex or nudity, though some of the female heroes wear revealing/tight costumes.
Lots of animated action featuring blasters, super-powered fistfights, energy beams, and other weapons. Buildings, vehicles, and other objects are often destroyed, but people are rarely injured.
Fairly complex messages for a kids' cartoon, touching on issues including injustice and discrimination. The government has declared mutants a menace and is hunting them down; those who've managed to avoid being imprisoned are living underground or in exile. While the X-Men hope to find a way for humans and mutants to peacefully coexist, other mutants have taken a much more confrontational approach -- particularly the Brotherhood, which advocates terrorist-style attacks against both anti-mutant government officials and the Mutant Response Division, a military unit charged with capturing people with super powers.
No commercial content within the series, but there's plenty of X-Men merchandise available for fans to purchase.
