10 Best Comic Book TV Shows Of The Decade

In a truly revolutionary decade for comic book TV, which shows stood out among the rest?

It's been quite the decade for comic book inspired television.

It's hard to believe there was ever a time when the world wasn't overrun with costume-clad superheroes, but before 2010 that's kind of what it felt like (well, as far as television was concerned at least). Yes, even though the appeal of comic book films were at an all-time high in the first decade of the century (due to the success of The Dark Knight and the early days of the MCU), the truth is that heroes never really had that kind of revolution on the small screen.

When this decade began, the long-running Smallville was about to bid us farewell and superhero shows were something of a rarity. But it didn't take long for that to change because, in a matter of years, one CW series changed everything and kicked off what is now known as the Arrowverse, while Marvel would venture into its own world of TV heroes through network television as well as launching its own R-rated shared universe on Netflix.

This decade has witnessed a renaissance of comic book TV and, as a result, we have more superhero shows than we can even count. But with the end of the decade upon us, let's take a look back at the best that it had to offer.
