Generator Rex

Another new series on Cartoon Network, Generator Rex is a comic book adaptation with a grating protagonist (douchebag teen hero) but I'm liking the art so far, especially the mutant designs, like this great spine-walking dangly-body brain guy:

Anyone he touches is infected by his tissues and controlled as conscious, unwilling puppets!

Cartoons for the pre-teen to teen crowd usually hold back more on the horror, and tip-toe around explicit mention of death. Even "Justice League," marketed as a fairly grown-up series, bent to censors and used the (weirdly) more accepted "destroy" instead of "kill." Thus far, this show is relatively unafraid of the D-word and throws around some nicely ghastly creatures.

For some reason I've always loved monsters that have tiny useless body parts just dangling around, um, uselessly. I find it... cute? XD

I agree, the proatgonist is bland and annoying. But what surprised me were how cool the monsters were and that they weren't afraid of the D-word. and Agent Smi...Six is pretty awesome.
It's a mixed series I think, showing promise and failure as well. None too shabby though, considering some of the other shows on CN
