Ah, Harry Potter ! A whole world of magic and amazement, butterbeer and chocolate frogs. Yes, the Harry Potter universe seems like such a wonderful place—until you really start thinking about it. The series may have been originally written for children, but it quickly transcended age constraints to cast its spell on generations of followers. And while some readers and moviegoers might be completely under the saga's spell, grown-up fans have a harder time ignoring some of its weird (and sometimes risqué) details. From suggestive names to infuriating character choices, here are some aspects of the  Harry Potter  series that take on a whole new meaning for adult audiences.

Ah, Moaning Myrtle. Her situation is certainly not enviable. Just as the basilisk gets loose from the Chamber of Secrets and starts stunning students into a petrified state — somehow, Colin Creevey, Hermione Granger, and others just so happened to be looking through lenses when they encountered the scaly beast — we find out that the bathroom-dwelling poltergeist Myrtle wasn't quite so lucky and lost her life upon catching the serpent's visage.

That said, her (literal) sob story is no excuse for how she tends to treat the living. Sure, she might get lonely, since kids largely stay away from her bathroom. But she has a strange tendency to play peeping Tom on any of the boys who dare to come into her washroom. Both Cedric and Harry suffered her prying eye — and no, it doesn't make it any better that she helped them resolve the mystery of the Golden egg. What's worse is that her name takes on an all-new meaning when you consider her twisted tendencies. To think — this is a kids series.

Cheetah was temporarily turned back to her human self, and she helped out Wonder Woman. She let herself turn back into Cheetah to save Etta Candy's life.

The third Cheetah was created by George Pérez . She first appeared as Barbara Minerva in Wonder Woman #7 , and as Cheetah in Wonder Woman #8 .

It was later explained that Barbara grew up in an isolated cult dedicated to Hippolyta as a feral hunter, during her childhood she was to have killed her own brother. Later, as the Cheetah, she would return and kill the leader of the cult and eat her heart, as she did with many of her victims as a sign of dedication.

I'm in the midst of a re-read. I finished book 1-6 in a month but am holding out on reading book 7 because I'm not ready for it to be over and never got around to finishing Cursed Child, so if this is addressed either place, please forgive me. But what "theme" do you think Minerva's passwords would have?
