There’s a scene where a male guard goes to kill a main character but they are stopped by another character who mind controls them into performing sexual acts on their baton to distract them. Played for laughs.

The ending is pretty tragic, but it's also only the ending of the first season. As of this writing, more seasons are in the works.

It’s hard to quantify this as an answer, but a character that was tortured/tested on seeks revenge on all humans in the area.

[SPOILERS] One of the main antagonists has the power to force anyone to do whatever they want them to if they touch them. They abuse this power to gaslight or mind control people by making them believe something that isn’t true (such as making one character believe their brother committed suicide when they were actually abducted), forget something (one episode begins with several days missing from the main characters memories with no idea what’s happened) or do something they wouldn’t normally (such as committing suicide or attacking people)

I think that injecting a child with V counts as child abuse, but the kind where it’s more control/exploitation, so maybe we should have a separate category for physical vs emotional

A character discusses having been r*ped by a mind controller. He took her captive for several days and it’s implied that she was r*ped during this time. She discusses having woken up without any knowledge about what happened except having a camera pointed at her and being threatened with “don’t make this weird or i’ll wipe [your mind] again”. In relation to a different circumstance the phrase mind-r*ped is used.

The person who was mind controlled from episode 1, in a sudden and unexpected scene, we see the person hit themselves in the groin hard with a bat once, and the scene changes. Intended for very humor, the person does not display any physical pain or agony.

I would say yes. Superhero needs to draw blood from hands for superpower. I would say it might possibly be triggering as she uses a knife. Also another superhero makes herself sick for her power this may be triggering depending.
