What You Need To Know:

MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN: Season One is streaming on the Warner Bros. Max platform. It’s a fun, campy reimagining of the early career of the world’s most famous superhero character. The series is set in Clark Kent’s early twenties as he starts a new internship at The Daily Planet. The program follows his struggles to keep his job, develop a relationship with Lois Lane, and learn how to use his superpowers. As he explores his abilities and responsibilities as a costumed hero, Clark learns more about where he was born and faces the existential questions of who he is and who he ought to be.

DC’s reputation for excellent animation programming is upheld well by this series. Season One of MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN has dynamic stories, charismatic voice acting, and innovative reworking of well-known Superman lore. Despite the show’s billing under the Adult Swim imprint, MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN fits its TV-PG rating to a T. There’s no foul language or lewd content in Season One, and the action violence is not extreme or bloody. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.

Content:

(C, B, VV, M):

Dominant Worldview and Other Worldview Content/Elements:
Light, redemptive worldview promotes selfless service and standing up against evil, but no higher purpose or reason and no higher power or governing moral authority, so parents should have conversations with their children about why Superman should save the people of Metropolis or why it was wrong for Clark and Lois to keep secrets from one another, in the context of a Christian worldview, plus main character faces questions of identity and belonging, which are handled positively, but without any theistic or biblical values to help answer them;

Foul Language:
No foul language;

Violence:
Cartoon action violence includes martial arts and laser weapon violence, mild cuts and bruises on characters who fight but no gore, and main character fights mainly giant robots and actual people to a lesser extent;

Sex:
No sex;

Nudity:
No nudity;

Alcohol Use:
No alcohol use;

Smoking and/or Drug Use and Abuse:
No smoking or drugs; and,

Miscellaneous Immorality:
Mild examples of lying, keeping secrets, and stealing, but all are clearly shown to be wrong.

MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN: Season One, which is streaming on the Warner Bros. Max platform, is a fun, campy reimagining of the early career of the world’s most famous superhero character.

Set in Clark Kent’s early twenties as he starts a new internship at The Daily Planet newspaper, the program follows his struggles to keep his job, develop a relationship with his fellow intern, Lois Lane, and learn how to use his burgeoning superpowers. As he explores his abilities and responsibilities as a costumed hero, Clark learns more about where he was born and faces the existential questions of who he is and who he ought to be.

DC’s reputation for excellent 2D animation programming is well upheld by this series. With a dynamic story, charismatic voice acting, and innovative reworking of well-known DC lore, MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN is tailor-made for lifelong fans, yet also accessible for newcomers to the Man of Steel. The show cleanses audiences’ palate of the bitter taste left by live action Superman actor Henry Cavill’s bait-and-switch dismissal last year and breaks new ground for one of the most beloved comic book characters ever. If there was any question that the Last Son of Krypton has a bright future in popular culture, MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN is the answer.

Despite the program’s somewhat confusing billing under the Adult Swim imprint, known for its adult animated content, MY ADVENTURES WITH SUPERMAN fits its TV-PG rating to a T. The absence of foul language or sexual content, as well as the program’s limited, sanitized violence, makes the series fit for most ages. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.
