Some mild sexual jokes, including vague indications that The Blue Rajah might be gay.

A nude mannequin shown close up (for about two seconds).

No nudity. Two girls wearing slightly revealing Wonder Woman-esque costumes fight each other.

The Spleen looks leers rather openly at The Bowler, who at one point turns down his advances by telling him "There's not enough beer in the world."

When Invisible Boy turns invisible, his clothing also falls off. While unclothed he is only seen from the knees down or the chest up. The other characters' comments make it clear that he is fully naked, and one makes a comment that adults will recognize as referring to the size of Invisible Boy's genitalia.


The only real gore is when Captain Amazing is melted alive by The Bowler and Raja on accident; his burned corpse is shown seconds later. This is meant to be morbid/dark humor.

Some gunfire, but no actual impact.

Several "funny-fights" (kicks and punches to the nuts, etc)

The Bowler keeps her dead father's skull in the bowling ball she uses. The fact that it's a human skull may upset some people.

Casanova has a pinky-fingernail he uses like a knife and draws blood on two different characters with it.


Several uses of "damn" and five uses of "ass".


Raja's mother asks if he is "doing the marijuana again".

The main characters gather and celebrate in a bar. Some of them appear to be intoxicated.


Captain Amazing's accidental death may be a little unnerving for younger viewers.

17/50 - Recommended for 11+
