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! '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.

This show is a royal joke, it is utterly stupid and has the dumbest stories for the episodes if you want a great cartoon batman and robin show watch Batman the Animated Series

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. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Easily The Worst DC Show Ever Made! I Doubt Anything Could Ever Top It Off.

This IS the worst show on T.V., I wish CN would cancel this trash, once & for all!

2 Fantastic Four (1978)

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

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.

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! - TechnicallyIDoComics

4 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.

This show did very little (if anything) to promote Jim Lee's WildC.A .T.The first family of Lee's Wildstorm Productions--as anything more than just another superhero team from the 1990s that the masses have accused of "ripping off" the X-Men, who were arguably at the peak of their popularity during that decade. Not only was Nelvana's WildC.A .T.s cartoon sloppily animated at times (due to budget limitations, from what I've been told), but its writing did a lousy job in informing the uninitiated (like myself at the time) about where the C.A.T.s had come from and how they came to be, and the team's war against the Daemonites was illustrated in meager episode-per-episode plots with only the final two episodes portraying anything close to the ongoing arc that the overall story truly deserved. This was especially horrible considering the C.A.T.s' lack of a more-inclusive rogues gallery. It was thus only after this show had gone off the air that I ever truly learned about the ...more

Image Comics and Wildstorm comics wants their own series on T.V. and they both failed. WildC.A.T.S. lasted only 12 episodes and there's nothing great just pointless battles with these alien villains. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Worst lyrics for an action cartoon theme song I've ever heard in my life. Plus, the episode-per-episode plot writing didn't do this show any wonders, and Helspont, the apparent LORD OF THE DAEMONITES, came off looking like every cliché Saturday morning cartoon villain ever made. Seriously, I only remember him ever directly confronting the WildC.A.T.s ONCE, and that was only because THEY stepped onto HIS turf rather than on account of him actually taking matters into his own hands.

Not a good way of promoting your comic book to newcomers (which I was at the time) at all.

5 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. - TechnicallyIDoComics

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). - TechnicallyIDoComics

7 Ultraforce

I know some indies comics shows are good, but this one sank it's ship. it's based on Malibu Comics and quite frankly, I've never like Malibu comics. - TechnicallyIDoComics

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. - TechnicallyIDoComics

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. - TechnicallyIDoComics

10 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. - TechnicallyIDoComics

The Contenders

11 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.
