Top 10 Animated Superhero TV Shows


The Top Ten

1 Batman: The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero Batman.

This is an incredibly dark show when compared to other animated shows about superheroes, but not so much that it is enjoyable to children. With incredibly strong performances by Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamill (Joker), this is, in the end, the ultimate animated television show.

This show was not only amazing in its own right, but also spawned the creation of several famous comic book characters, including the clown princess of crime Harley Quinn, as well as create the DC Animated Universe which would lead to the creation of Superman the animated series and Justice League Unlimited.

I love this show! It was dark and awesome!

This is not a kid show, it's for adults.

2 The Spectacular Spider-Man

This is the best Spider-Man show in my opinion. The plot is brilliant and Josh Keaton is great as Spider-Man. This is probably the best version of Green Goblin in animated form. In fact, basically all the villains were amazing. Spider-Man was a very relatable character in the show. The show was great and it shouldn't have been cancelled so early. The show had so much they could've expanded on in season 3, (Tombstone and all the mob stuff, the ending with Norman Osborne or Chameleon, Peter and Gwen's relationship, Black Cat's father being the guy who killed Uncle Ben, etc. ) and it is a shame it never happened. The show is simply spectacular.

It did not only build upon the original pioneer's like Batman TAS it built upon it in its relatability and serial form of storytelling. Batman was great but never had to deal with being poor, girl problems, high school, and hiding your superhero career from you own aunt. I think that this makes it such a great show that didn't deserved to be canceled so soon although it was just because of legal stipulations

The best Spider-Man and best superhero show of all time in my opinion. But fact is show is awesomeness

Green Goblin felt so much like the Joker and Lex Luthor as Norman Osborn! I loved how he was portrayed! But then again, this show was so well done! It is definitely the second best animated superhero show ever! - Daviddv0601

3 Teen Titans Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

Better than Teen Titans GO!, am I right?

I love this show it was so amazing but you all know everyone watched it for Raven and starfire

Cyborg and Raven were the best things about this show! - Daviddv0601

Best animated show ever. - LarryLarrington

4 Young Justice

Probably the most underrated animated series ever. 2 seasons was not justice, no pun intended. I was so upset with Disney for canceling the show. Lunch pails and other paraphernalia were more important than keeping the show. If they had made an announcement that they needed that to help keep it going, I myself would have led a charge for getting those silly things sold. I miss it

It's not fun to watch when you are a single teen who lives their life being surrounded by people who make out in their face. I stopped watching since Superboy took off his shirt and Miss Martian blushed. How shallow was that? I'm sorry, this show sucks. - Daviddv0601

Young Justice brings all new superheroes and their origins.

Best animated show ever! F those who canceled it!

5 Justice League: Unlimited

Aquaman, Doctor Fate, Shazam and so many more underrated characters were given screen time. I LOVED the romantic relationship between Batman and Wonder Woman and Superman was so awesome! Flash was the best thing about this show. This show is also the reason I love John Stewart so much! - Daviddv0601

Simply awesome show. Should have been continued. The writing was phenomenal, animation spectacular

One of those shows you didn't just watch for the animation, you watched for the adventure

6 Batman Beyond

I watched many episodes of Batman Beyond when I was younger. It was AMAZING! - Fury2

Classy, clever and stylish. In one word I'd have to say "cool". Worthy of a continuation or at least another fanimated film or 2 or 3

7 Spider-Man (1994)

Spectacular Spider-Man was awesome, but stopped after 28 episodes or something like that. This series has 65 episodes, and great stories. I love the animation too. This show rocks!

By far the best Animated Spider Man series. A true classic, definitely worth a watch, the 65 episodes just fly by.

Classic. Each season was like one long comic book story arc, and it had tons of awesome villians and heroes, including the punisher. SOMEBODY TELL SONY OR Disney OR WHOEVER HAS THE RIGHTS TO SPIDERMAN NoW TO RELEASE THIS ON DVD. FULL SEASONS! - woolarca1

8 Superman: The Animated Series

A great show and it reminds me why Superman is so amazing. I don't know why people say Superman is boring, he is very interesting, especially in this show. The plots are great and the villains are awesome. Clancy Brown is probably the best Lex Luthor voice actor and Tim Daly's Superman is great too. Even though Batman is my favorite hero, I like this show more than any of his shows.

Tim Daly was the best voice for Superman. He was made such a likable character in this show. - Daviddv0601

9 Justice League

The animation was beautiful and it had a lot of incredible characters. This is what first got me into DC, and I love it so much.

Justice League and JL unlimited were absolutely fantastic. Great writing, great animaton, the whole series is a proud part of my video collection. They should bring it back. There's every reason to do so.

10 X-Men

The intensity and realism in the show are unlike many other animated shows. The direct inspiration from the comics and themes of discrimination provide its darker tone, but still with enough stylized action and somewhat campy feel, it proves to be a perfect show for adults and kids alike.

Jean grey ruined the show I HATE HER

11 Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes

Very childish but if you are a true Marvel, you wouldn't care because you would see all your favourite heroes (Including all the underrated ones) on the screen! - Daviddv0601

Best marvel show ever.This is the show that made me love marvel at the first place - Triceratops

12 The Batman

While I was not so hot on the design, it was very well written! The Joker was just terrifying, the Penguin was made as such a likable villain, the Riddler was so enigmatic, Catwoman was sassy and there were just so many great characters! Recommended to any Batman fan! - Daviddv0601

Just as good as Green Lantern The Animated Series

13 Ultimate Spider-Man Ultimate Spider-Man

Cringeworthy and terrible! Nothing compared to Spectacular Spider-Man. Hated how the Green Goblin was designed and worst of all, Spider-Man kept breaking the fourth wall... THAT'S DEADPOOL'S THING! - Daviddv0601

Best spiderman animated show ever

14 Wolverine & the X-Men

I wish their was a second season. Season one focused on Days of Future Past and Season two could've focused on Age of Apocalypse, which could've been awesome. And best of all, WOLVERINE WAS THE LEADER OF THE X-MEN! - Daviddv0601

Great stories, but cut way too short.

15 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
16 DragonBall Z DragonBall Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable more.

It's A SUPERHERO SHOW EVERYBODY. For real why is everyone typing in caps. It has a hero, and he is super, BOOM! Superhero

This isn't a superhero show. - MKBeast

My friend is so inlove with this show I'm gonna try watching it
