Unclear - I’m not sure how old the characters are when the series starts. Nathan makes a sexual joke about Simon’s sister before finding out that she is 12. Nothing very serious.

In S1 E4, in the scenes where Kelly is slumped against a wall.

In S2 E8, someone uses their power to make someone vomit in two separate scenes. Both are quite graphic.

The first starts right after the line "You can do stuff with milk".

The second starts as a woman is talking about the charity work she did in India.

In the only notable case of suicide, the character is immortal and the suicide is in order to show off the immortality. However, it is graphic.

Sort of? A character has the ability to change gender and accidentally impregnates their female body. He has his power taken away so he cannot change back into his female self, thus terminating the pregnancy.

There is a literal joke where a character says that men who wear women's clothing are "just sick perverts", but there are no visual gags or stereotypes.

In s1 e2, there is top nudity from a young woman and an old woman. Simon is briefly naked from behind in one of the last episodes of s2 (can’t remember which one). The intro of s2 e2 involves Nathan putting on sunblock while wearing very little (played for laughs).

Nathan considers himself to be homeless. He lives in the community centre (illegally), so he's living fairly comfortably and there's nothing particularly unpleasant in regards to homelessness.
