Marvel's Cinematic Universe is expansive, reaching all the way to superhero shows on Netflix and carrying on a long tradition of making TV shows from Marvel comic books. The Marvel Comics superhero shows have run the range of genre and style over the years, from live-action to animated. Some of them are even the best comic book and superhero shows of all time.

Older live-action Marvel Comics television programs like Mutant X paved the way for modern superhero shows like Jessica Jones and Legion. And we can't forget all of the cartoon comic book adaptations, like X-Men: Evolution and the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon. But, of all the Marvel shows (including superhero TV shows adapted from publishers that were later taken over by Marvel, like Malibu Comics), which is the best of all of the Marvel comic book adaptations?
