Piercing Ken Thoughts: I have to say that this one looks like its going to be a lot of fun and it strikes me as the perfect introduction to the younger superhero fan in your household be they a boy or a girl. Since the show features high school students, the show is loaded with very diverse characters to key into. Now, I’m going to add that the villains look pretty intimidating as well and since I have a Netflix subscription I might even give a few episodes a chance. Can action figures be far behind? Oh you know they’ll be coming since this is a Hasbro property. What did you think of this trailer? Does it look like something you will let the kids watch? Let me know down in the comments area.
