Black Lightning, Gotham, Preacher (The CW, Fox, AMC)

Though DC Comics has enjoyed a television presence since 1953 with the George Reeves–starring Adventures of Superman — and made genuine cultural touchstones out of the 1966 Batman and the late 1970s Wonder Woman — it has never had so many of its titles translated on television at the same time before.

Syfy’s Krypton is the newest addition to the list, and iZombie recently overtook Black Lightning in the top spot of our scorecard of DC Comics–based television by Tomatometer.

And there’s plenty more to come: Later in 2018, Titans, the live-action drama series starring Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson (aka Robin) that will debut on DC’s new streaming service. Also just announced for the forthcoming service, Metropolis from Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon, and Warner Bros. Animation’s Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders. Plus, an animated Constantine adaptation for CW Seed will drop soon, and the iconic comic series Watchmen from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons is currently being developed as a series by Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers) for HBO.
