Too Young For Suicide Squad? Check Out These Heroes and Villains From DC and Downtown Bookworks


Suicide Squad got your little ones all revved up?

As my almost six year old keeps reminding me, he’s too young to see Suicide Squad but man he’d love to. So what can I do to give him the lowdown on these classic characters? Teen Titans Go! is a great cartoon but they don’t really do the whole good and evil thing and the original Teen Titans cartoon is a little mature for him.

If he were only a few years younger I know the DC Super Heroes: My First Book of Super-Villains, from Downtown Bookworks best-selling line of DC board books would be a great fit. Every two-page spread features a good guy and bad guy and a defining characteristic.

At five my son is reading on his level but increasing his reading vocabulary is always a plus.

And it’s 128 pages.
