A superhero series with a 1980s feel
31 March 2020 | by bhermann-40608See all my reviews

I'm not keen on superhero films, so this isn't the most interesting, but it drew me in. The first season involves the three protagonists, Ricardo, Jake, and Nathan testing out their powers as the Flex Fighters. One of the major themes is a corporation named Rook Unlimited which is gaining power in the city itself, even gaining control of public services, privatizing them. This is not shown in a positive light as Rook is pretty incapable without the Flex Fighters. Apart from that, there is occasional romance, like a crush of Ricardo on another girl, with the same for Jake, a sub-story. The second season parallels the skepticism of government in Gatchaman Crowds or in Macross Frontier where the government is shown as incompetent and easily corruptible. This series has no LGBTQ characters, although it is great due to its criticism of scientific hubris, propaganda, control, the media, and the dangers of technology dependence. The fact that few can figure out the real identities of the Flex Fighters is almost as absurd as the fact that only a small group of Adora's friends knew she was She-Ra in the 1980s series, She-Ra: Princess of Power. It's an annoying cliche. This is a bit broken apart as more people find out about it as the series moves forward. I enjoyed the action, the characters, and the plot of this show, making it more appealing than I would have thought. That's why I would give this show its current rating.
