Top Ten Worst Comic Book Animated TV Shows

We know the good comic shows including X-Men, Avengers, Spider-Man or any A plus shows, these shows here on this list failed to succeed.
The Top Ten
1 Teen Titans Go! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television... read more

There's a reason why Teen Titans Go! Failed, it ruined the franchise and the characters here are chibish and terrible. The corny jokes are bad and weird things happen to our characters including Raven loves ponies. Yeah I said it, Raven love ponies.

The animation is mediocre at best. The characters are very annoying and stupid freaks. The episode plots don't make sense too.

I can't believe I used to think this was the best dc cartoon ever. Ever since I've watched the original, I viewed this as nothing but garbage.

2 Fantastic Four (1978)

Adding H.E.R.B.I.E. may have been one thing, seeing how popular the droids from Star Wars (Episode IV) were, but having the guy replace the Human Torch was a HUGE mistake. You can't have the Fantastic Four without all FOUR team members, after all.

Sadly, Human Torch was replaced by a robot named H.E.R.B.I.E. "Humanoid Experimental Robot, B-type, Integrated Electronics" for whomever knows what and it ruined the Fantastic Four cartoon. It lasted only 13 episodes because of low ratings. Thanks, H.E.R.B.I. E!

Ah, I get it now, this show replaced Human Torch with a robot. Am I correct on that?

3 Spider-Man Unlimited

In late 90's, this show was made after Spider-Man: The Animated Series, but it's not that great. Spidey's costume fell flat and the characters are... meh!

4 Swamp Thing: The Animated Series

Made in 1991, the show sucks based on Swamp Thing from DC Comics and theme song's so terrible that it has pretty much of a same tone. If you haven't heard this show, look up on YouTube or Google it and you'll hear how bad it is.

5 WildC.A.T.S.

If CBS wasn't so adamant abut trying to compete with Fox's wildly popular X-Men cartoon back in the 1990s, they wouldn't have even bothered commissioning a cartoon featuring the First Family of Wildstorm Productions. Choppy animation, sloppy voice-directing, and -- most importantly -- the most careless writing of any superhero cartoon I've ever witnessed as far as plot progression, character development, and dialogue are all concerned. Add an embarrassingly obnoxious theme song (lyrics and all), and you've got a recipe for disaster.

If you want a GOOD cartoon based on characters from the pages of Image Comics, go watch Spawn, Savage Dragon, or The Maxx instead.

6 Avengers: United They Stand

Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Avengers Assemble are great, but this Avenger show loose it's touch. Captain America and Iron Man were in one episode and Thor was in each intros but never showed up. The armored costumes and villains (which mainly was Zodiac) are downright awful and it's like half Avengers and half Power Rangers (because the armor they used).

7 Ultraforce

I REALLY wanted to like this cartoon when I first saw it, but I'm sorry..."X-Men rip-off" or not, Ultraforce relies WAY too much on loud, in-your-face action sequences (complete with seizure-inducing flashes of light); choppy animation; haphazardly thrown-together plot points; and sloppy overall narration to care about properly introducing and fleshing out its characters to the uninitiated. Throw in the loudest, most obnoxious theme song this side of the WildC.A.T.s cartoon's intro theme, and one can see where this program failed when it could (and, in my opinion, SHOULD) have succeeded.

Rest in peace, Ultraforce and Malibu Comics. Whether certain comic book fans liked you or not, you nonetheless deserved better.

8 Iron Man: The Animated Series

The Iron Man show was made in the 90's and this isn't what we expected between the rivals of Tony Stark and Mandarin. The armor switching modes and several plots doesn't made any sense. The origins are better in the comics than on the show.

9 Black Panther: The Animated Series

The show hasn't been aired on BET in America, but in Australia. Never heard much about the show, but critics say it's bad and pointless.

10 Ultimate Spider-Man Premiering in 2012, this American animated series is a modern reimagining of the Spider-Man mythos. The story follows teenage Peter Parker as he juggles life and superhero duties. The show incorporates various characters from the Marvel Universe and is notable for its youthful tone.

THis show was horrible! Way off the comics

Why?! I loved this show as a little kid

The Contenders
11 Fred and Barney Meet The Thing

You know the Thing, right? Well, this Thing has no connections to the Fantastic Four and as a normal teenager he uses 2 magic rings together to be Thing and recites his phrase, "Thing ring, do your thing"! What the F? This failed show was made in 1979 and was played on Boomerang.

12 The Super Hero Squad Show
13 Spider-Man: The New Animated Series

This series is boring and terrible. The only redeeming quality is the voice acting and mature tone. Everything about it sucks. It tries to be Batman TAS but fails. The episodes were out of order so continuity is messed up. The CGI is poorly done and makes the characters look like they come from a video game. The series does not have a single good villain. There are hardly any classic villains and those that are there are poorly represented. The series makes up original villains that are nothing more than rejects from neighboring shows like X-Men Evolution and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

14 The Batman
15 The New Adventures of Batman
16 The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants
17 Avengers Assemble
18 Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
19 Speed Racer Speed Racer is an animated television show that originally aired in Japan as "Mach GoGoGo." Created by Tatsuo Yoshida, it debuted in 1967 and was adapted for American audiences in the same year. The series follows Speed Racer, a young race car driver who strives for glory in his technologically advanced... read more
