List Rules The best animated superhero cartoon series. No movies!

The greatest animated superhero shows are amazing works of art that typically don’t get as much attention as superhero blockbusters—though they should. Animated superhero shows have great storylines that intertwine multiple episodes. That isn’t to say all superhero cartoons are good though, as more than a few are pretty terrible. So to find out which ones are the best, fans have voted for their favorite animated superhero shows in the ranking below.

Don’t be surprised to find a ton of 90s superhero shows below as that was a golden age for animated superhero cartoons. Before movies like X-Men, Iron Man, and Batman Begins made superheroes chic in the 2000s, they were seen mostly as entertainment for geeks and nerds. In the 90s, even the best superheroes ever struggled to get movie made. Thankfully, cartoons are a medium that lends itself to telling superhero stories as they are cheap to produce.

Be sure to vote for your favorite animated superhero shows or add any that you feel belong on the list. Some of the shows may be hard to find as they may not be available for streaming, but you can always check your favorite stores to see if they are available in a box set. No matter how you watch them though, the best animated superhero shows below are worth days if not weeks of entertainment.
