It's designed for kids, but I explain here why it isn't good for them
This show is obviously designed to be a flexible program-filler with 10 minute short episodes,
plus few parents are likely to mind their kid to watch such a short cartoon.
For me as a mature person those episodes are ideal whilst rowing on the machine, because they push me, but I would not recommend using such a show as a babysitter-substitute for your kids for follownig reasons.
In the begining, superhearoes, such as Wonderwoman were created by the intelligent psychologist W.M. Marston for example, who also invented the lie detector (which is probably half the reason for the lasso).
It was meant to fill a gap in our needs to feel special, but superheroes are commercially so over-exploited that the entire concept is degraded to mere action - as Charles herold here wrote in another critique - without investing in any background-story anymore.
The problem with this is that if you are a parent:
1.) The constant loud noises and bright flashes will make kids more aggressive (from the point of Chinese Medicine, because it destroys Liver-blood),
2.) and the non-stop heroism will (on a western psychological level) give rise to image neurosis, so that the kids will grow up feeling insignificant if they can't live up to normal powers,
3.) so from a western medical perspective they are more likely to run into adrenalin-burnouts or ADHD etc.
The first idea of Superpowers initially came out of the realm of spirituality, and they were called "siddhis", but such series have the exact opposite effect on children by making them having to think so fast that their phantasy and ability to reflect may suffer when watching such stuff too often.
