From Craig McCracken, creator of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, comes a classic comics-style inspired TV series, Kid Cosmic.
The show has a terrific sense of humour and a great supporting cast, making it a fun watch, especially if you are a Craig McCracken fan. From superhero jokes to the story’s focus on assembling the squad, every scene is entertaining.
Kid Cosmic follows Kid, a young boy with a deep obsession for comic books.
One day, a spaceship crashes in his vicinity, and he discovers 5 “Cosmic Stones of Power” that allow him to live his dream of becoming a superhero. He assembles a motley crew of superheroes to defend the planet when he discovers that the stones will invite alien invaders too. His squad includes teenager Jo who can open portals; old guy Papa G who can clone himself; Rosa, the little girl, who can grow into a giant; and lastly, the cat Tuna Sandwich, who can see into the future.
Kid is enthusiastic about being the team’s leader, despite his lack of leadership abilities compensating it by showing off his knowledge of comic books. Kid Cosmic premiered on February 2, 2021, on Netflix. The show’s second season was released on September 7, 2021, and is available to watch on Netflix. **

There is no real explanation for that. Kid might have got this scar from the car accident that killed his parents.
