Marvel Studios may get all the praise for their movies and recent Netflix series, but their DC counterparts still have one leg up on them: they’ve simply brought more of their major heroes to the big or small screen.
Of course, this may seem hard to believe considering how many live action Avengers related franchises Marvel is populating your local movie theater with, but DC has been working the small screen since the 1960’s. Even before the current Arrowverse universe of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl Warner Bros. introduced many familiar characters or heroes in one form of another in Superboy, Lois & Clark, Smallville and even a short lived Birds of Prey series. And yes, famous characters making one episode cameos still count for something.
We recently reviewed the 20 Marvel Heroes fans still need to see on the big or small screen and you were pretty passionate in your feelings over who deserved to be on the list and who didn’t. We’re happy to report DC still has a lot of popular properties to explore and, in fact, they might actually be more interesting than what their competitors have to offer.
