Top 10 Animated Superhero TV Shows

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

The most accurate comic book show ever created. Bruce Timm did an excellent job at creating Batman's universe. With amazing villains such as the Riddler, Joker, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Catwoman, Mad Hatter, Penguin and the invention and reinvention of both Harley Quinn and Mr Freeze, this show remains as THE greatest superhero T.V. show period. No show (Or film) could EVER top this show. It was dark, gritty and even had a couple goofy moments to add SOME light in it. However, nobody can EVER forget the unforgettable voice acting performance from Kevin Conroy and our favourite Jedi, Mark Hamill.

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.

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 is the best Superhero animated T.V. show. It has great casts (no one can forget Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill's performance), awesome storylines, and also the first appearance of the queen of clowns named Harley Quinn. I mean come on, no Superhero series can beat this one.

2 The Spectacular Spider-Man The Spectacular Spider-Man is an American animated television series based on the superhero character published by Marvel Comics and developed for television by Greg Weisman and Victor Cook.

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.

Green Goblin was the best thing about this show. I know people complain and say, "That's not the Green Goblin! That's just the Joker wearing a Green Goblin costume! " Uh, hello? Green Goblin was heavily inspired by the Joker in the first place! Of course he will share some similarities to the Clown Prince of Crime! However, I really loved how chaotic, evil, psychotic and sadistic this version of the Green Goblin was. WAY better than Ultimate Goblin. Venom is the ONLY villain who should look buff and Bane-like. The characters were so lovable. I really liked the villains of this show such as Dr Octopus, Venom, Electro, etc. I loved how the show chose to explore Peter's love life with ALL his comic loves such as Liz Allen, Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson. However, we all know that Peter eventually chooses Gwen to be his soul mate. (I am a Spidey x MJ shipper but whatever) Even Black Cat who, okay, I know and agree with this too that she is literally a pure knockoff of Catwoman, is ...more

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

This series tops every other Spider-Man series, though too many 90's kids accuse this series of being childish and stupid, whereas they fail to see the blatant flaws with the 90's series, which include piss-poor writing and one-note relationships. Nothing against it, but Spectacular is superior to it in every other way, though it may or may not deserve number one.

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

Come on! People! This is one of THE BEST CARTOONS EVER PEOPLE! There was such great character and plot development, and the way they put in so much effort into an episode. They leave us wondering what'll happen next. It has complex characters and personality traits. The characters have a fatal flaw that prevents them from doing something. I love how they kept advancing with each season. I hope to see a future season 6!

The original titans are super deep. Robin is properly motivated, Cyborg is strong and balanced, Beast Boy is more contemplative, Starfire is like me, and Raven is super deep.

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

I love this show! I grew up watching it! I ship robin and Starfire!

4 Batman Beyond Batman Beyond is an American animated television series developed by Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, and Alan Burnett and produced by Warner Bros.

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

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

5 Justice League: Unlimited Justice League is an American animated television series which ran from 2001 to 2004 on Cartoon Network.

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!

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 Young Justice Young Justice is an American animated television series developed by Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman for Cartoon Network.

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.

When DC and Cartoon Network cancelled this show. They destroyed a universe of potential. Cancelling this show after only two seasons was a crime against humanity.

This show (aside from Teen Titans) is the first cartoon I fell inlove with. It gave me a chance to go deeper into the DC universe now look at me people now call me a geek and you know what I'm proud

7 Spider-Man (1994) Spider-Man, also known as Spider-Man: The Animated Series, is an American animated television series based on the Marvel Comic.

The voice acting can be very cringey and cheesy sometimes but this is a very good adaption of the comics. What this show did that Spectacular Spider-Man could not was expand Spider-Man's universe by bringing in other Marvel Universe characters such as Dr Strange, Daredevil, Punisher, etc. It is still worth watching if you are a hardcore Spider-Man fan. However, if you just want to watch a superhero show in modern times, this show will feel a little too outdated for you.

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.

BEST SPIDER-MAN AND 90s SHOW EVER! (Ignore the Spectacular Spider-Man Fanboys or 90s Batman Fanboys who would say otherwise)

8 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.

I just started watching it and I was hooked, I believe this show should be 2nd after Batman The Animated Series.

Best show ever should be #1 awesome

2 old-fashioned 4 me.

9 Superman: The Animated Series Superman: The Animated Series is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics's flagship character, Superman.

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.

10 Justice League Justice League is an American animated television series which ran from 2001 to 2004 on Cartoon Network.

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.

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.

Just a classic. Conroy, Newbern, Canals, LaMarr, Rosenbaum, Eisenberg, and Lumbly are all the best voices for their characters

The Contenders
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!

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

This is a great show

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!

Just as good as Green Lantern The Animated Series

The Definitive Batman (Rino Romano)

13 Ultimate Spider-Man

This is the best marvel T.V. show made so far. great characters, excellent plots, incredibly powerful lessons

Best spiderman animated show ever

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!

Most entertaining

14 Wolverine & the X-Men Wolverine and the X-Men is a 2009 American animated series by Marvel Animation. It is the fourth of five animated adaptations of the X-Men characters, the other four being Pryde of the X-Men, X-Men: The Animated Series, X-Men: Evolution, and an anime adaptation known simply as X-Men.

Great stories, but cut way too short.

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!

15 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an American 3D rendered computer animated television series based on the fictional superhero team. It aired on Nickelodeon in the United States from September 29, 2012 to November 12, 2017.

This show was good.

You want to have 1 slice of pizza when you can have 3.

Here’s the evolution of teenage mutant ninja turtles (1987-2018)

16 Iron Man

Great show but shouldn't Iron Man be well a man, not a high school teenager?

Its awesome cartoon so why it is not to be ranked in 1

17 Static Shock
18 The New Batman Adventures
19 DragonBall Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation.
