Which Super Hero TV show of either Marvelverse or DC-verse is your favorite and why?

Please, no show bashing, lest ye mods of Mount Olympus throw down the YE GREAT AND TERRIBL hammer of banning upon thy cranium.

Mine is Daredevil as it kind of follows my life in the crisis of faith department.

Daredevil - great storytelling (so was Luke Cage 2 imho)
Gotham - its taken the campiness of 60's Batman and given it a darker modern twist
Titans is only 3 episodes in but I'm suprised that I'm liking it so far - the story is going well even if its sometimes more violent than it needs to be and Starfires hooker costume is still rubbish (but works in context)
Into the Badlands - a great dystopian kung fu epic and my favourite show atm (its heroes count as superpowered)


I liked the first season of Runaways and am waiting expectantly for season 2
I got bored with the CW shows about 2 seasons ago and no longer watch them

I am watching my shows on netflix, so I am probably 1 season behind, but Daredevil has been #1 for me from S 1 Ep 1.

I am not to the season 2 of Luke Cage, but it is in my que, and I will be going there next.

I love Gotham for its dark twist, but as I am a Browncoat, Morena Baccarin stole my heart. [Dr. Leslie Thompkins, M.E. IIRC]

I've not heard of Titans and I have Into the Badlands in my que.

Edit:

Would Supernatural be considered a superhero show, even though it is not DC or marvel?

Two more things: I wish the would make Dr. Strange and Bright as series', even as a one season limited run.

Edit 2:

finished Daredevil, now on Luke Cage

I've been watching the Flash with my daughter and she's loving it, so, it ranks pretty high on my list. Fun, not too serious and it's getting her into the genre so it's something we can share.

Jessica Jones season 1 is definitely my favorite followed by Daredevil.

League of Legends is definitely a guilty pleasure, but, again, fun and campy.

Never really got into Gotham. Watched the first season, but, it did kinda fail to hook me.

Can we add:

Lois And Clark: The Adventures of Superman

It was fun to watch.
It had a great theme.
They stayed as true to the characters as any series every has.
And they had their "wedding" episode insinc with the "wedding" in the comics.

I absolutley loved The Flash when it started primarily because it was a fun take on the genre (as The Flash should be) and the ensemble had a bit of chemistry going for it.

However as the seasons progressed Barry has become more and more angsty and the plots too formulaic - I just ended up getting bored with it (, and they use Speedsters far too often - theres something like 9 of them on the roster now?)

I like most of the Marvel Netflix shows.
Agents or SHIELD has been pretty solid the last few years. Really, since the second half of season one. And I’d bet the first half holds up better when you know what’s coming...

But I want to shout out Legends of Tomorrow. I want most of the CW/ Arrowverse shows and those are... okay. But LoT is stupid and ridiculous and glorious.
The first season was rough. So bad. And th first half of season 2 was so-so. But then they hit their stride and just stopped trying to fight the fact the protagonists are literally the worst. It went full on absurd and just kept trying to top itself in insanity. It’s so self aware and fun.

ok, this is kind of funny. I have been waiting for netflix to get season 5 and I just checked and saw that season 5 is on netflix now, but i never saw a notification of this!

thank you for the shout out for legends of tomorrow. I gave up after the first episode and will give the show a second chance.

I think the Marvel show on Netflix are slow burn thus boring. The DC shows on The CW are fun. I watch Supergirl when I need a pick me up. Kara is so bright and sunny. I just loved her intervention in the alien bar in the most recent episode. It was halarious. I too think she should have gone with the Beastie Boys.

That was a solid episode. I loved the gradual and realistic radicalization of an otherwise normal person. And showing how the last three years of dramatic season finales would have affected the common folk...

I thought the same thing. The main characters took a backseat almost. I enjoyed everything about the episode.

I like both versions of The Flash that have hit the airwaves. Of the modern DC/Marvel shows, that’s the only one I watch.

Enjoyed Heroes and Alphas, too.

And Greatest American Hero has a spot in my heart, and Misfits of Science was fun while it lasted as well.

Dang you old. :p

I liked them also. Like so many shows Greatest American Hero may be getting a revival. A woman this time. I wonder if her sidekick will eat dog biscuits also. Alphas should have been given more time.
 

I haven't watched all that many. I've only watched:

Jessica Jones: Enjoyed both seasons
Dare Devil: Still have to watch the third season, but loved the other two.
Luke Cage: Watched the first season, then stopped watching it.

Yup. Just turned 51. Mom gave me an AARP membership.

Gotham is my favourite.

Followed by Daredevil, then Supergirl, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist got much better this year.

Arrow once was, then I went off it for a few years, but it's picked up again.

Oh wow, thats going back.

Greatest American Hero was our family viewing show when I was growing up and I still sing the theme song "look at what happened to me-ee, I can't beleive it myself..." in the shower.

I liked the Misfits of Science too, also looking back in that era I liked Automan (the Tron-ripoff holographic crimefighter)

Havent seen Alphas

I started watching Supergirl with my wife and really enjoyed season 1. Then they moved to the CW and turned it into a teen romance drama and both of us really tuned out. Just can't force ourselves to watch it. Quit halfway through season 2. Real shame. The show had potential, but, I can't just get into it.

Also liked Linda Carter as Wonder Woman, FWIW. Didn’t see the movies, just the clips, but I think Gal Godin is doing an excellent job filling LC’s bracelets!
