DC Comics TV by Tomatometer

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.

The animated series Young Justice, which debuted its first season in 2010 and second in 2012, has returned with a third season this year. And with the launch of DC Universe, the company’s new streaming service, three more titles can be added to the list: Titans, the live-action adaptation of the comic of the same name starring Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Robin), Doom Patrol, about a misfit group of superheroes under the tutelage of an eccentric old rich guy, and , the live-action horror-skewing series unfortunately cancelled before its well-reviewed first season finished airing. (DC Universe also has new live-action series Stargirl set to debut in 2019.)
