I mean in a way that's what limits the writers right now. Grown ass hairy men can pick on nunances and hidden meanings to characters but children aren't as experienced. That's why when something bad happens, the characters have to gloat or put on their scared faces so little girls can know it's a scary situation and don't get lost in the plot. We know it isn't in Zhan Tiri's interest to gloat and have an idea of what she's planning, but those subtleties are lost to little girls.
That's what happened when Young Justice was aiming for the younger demographic and children didn't get the plot.
