Netflix Currently Has 61 Superhero TV Shows Available To Watch
With The Umbrella Academy returning for a second season this Friday, superhero shows remain a solid investment for Netflix. Whether licensed or original, the US version of Netflix currently has 61 superhero-themed series available to stream, including multiple shows from the Arrowverse, the Netflix MCU originals and quite a ridiculous amount of Power Rangers content. What are some of the highlights, then, of Netflix’s superpowered series?
Well, in terms of The CW’s Arrowverse, Netflix has the back catalogue of Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, as well as Black Lightning, which taken together represents 536 episodes. While the quality of the shows may vary at times, the Arrowverse is arguably one of the best adaptations of the DC Universe to the screen and showed the potential of television to embrace the storytelling format of comics. Only Batwoman is currently not ready to stream on the platform, as its streaming rights have gone to HBO Max, which may eventually also pick up the rest of the Arrowverse.
On the Marvel side, you can still catch Netflix’s Defenders-verse collection of series, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Punisher and the team-up show The Defenders. There are 13 seasons and 161 episodes to watch over the different series, which are essential viewing at their best, but padded out at worst. Six seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are also available to stream.
Other notable titles include the much-loved Avatar: The Last Airbender and 887 episodes from the various parts of the Power Rangers franchise, as well as multiple Transformers series. While the 61 shows listed by What’s On Netflix do have some questionable choices, most notably The Magicians, it’s fair to say that superhero fans have plenty to enjoy on the streaming platform.
