Let´s start our our list with a relatively new spin on a Marvel classic! The Daredevil franchise has been around 6 decades taking on several different media forms over the years including the original 60´s comics and a feature film! In 2015, Netflix decided to give the red costumed hero of Hell´s Kitchen his own series which took a much darker tone than the previous installments of the franchise. The show was sadly canceled after three riveting seasons full of action, romance and tragedy. If you´re a Marvel fan and haven´t seen this addicting series, make sure to check it out on your next Netflix binge!
A origin story like no other! To be honest, Superman has been done so many different ways, both very good and quite terrible. Smallville was one of the series franchise' done right! Throughout the series, we encounter a young Clark Kent who has recently discovered his powers. But, to quote another famous superhero franchise, "With great power, comes great responsibility" and that, he has to learn the hard way. If you´re ever in the mood for a thrilling origin story about the Man of Steel, Smallville is definitely the way to go!
The Defenders was Marvel´s attempt on bringing Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all into one series and we think they did a pretty good job! Each character has their own individual show, all with different plot points that feed into the main story of The Defenders. If you´re looking for an action-packed plot with some of your favorite Marvel superheroes, you've come to the right place!
They finally did it! Fans of The Flash have been waiting for a show for years and in 2014, it happened! This series, unlike many of the others on this list, takes a rather lighter tone whilst following our main protagonist Barry Allen through his war on crime. Make sure you check it out!
Instead of taking the classical approach and documenting the lives of the superheroes themselves, why not take a look at the organisation that works with them! And that my friends is how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was born! Definitely one of the more interesting Marvel series!
This Daredevil spin-off series is probably one of the darkest on this list! The series follows Frank Castle, who, after his familiy´s murder, decides to use his military background to take down the people responsible! Gritty, dark and full of tragedy, this series is surely not for the more light hearted Marvel fans out there!
You thought The Flash was light-hearted? Well you´ve probably never heard of The Tick. This series combines the superhero genre with a healthy dose of comedy, like no other. Another great series worth having Prime for.
Before we had Netflix and Amazon Prime, we actually watched shows like Heroes on TV! Can you imagine that? Anyway, we can definitely say that this show still holds up today! And the spin-off Heroes Reborn isn´t half bad either...
Speaking of origin stories, Gotham really takes the cake! All of the classic Batman characters, such as The Riddler, Penguin, Mr. Freeze and even series-specific version of Joker, are all shown as younger versions of themselves fighting for power in the dirty streets of Gotham! What a treat!
Luke Cage is one of the most bad-ass characters in The Defenders line-up. This man is literally indestructible! To be honest, the individual series itself, alongside Daredevil, doesn´t really need the other Defenders to be great!
