Comic Book Adaptations That Deserve A Second Chance As A TV Series, Ranked

List Rules
Vote up the comic book adaptations that deserve a small screen second chance.

We're definitely in the golden era of comic book films, but the world had to suffer through a dark period of terrible comic movies to get here - and a bunch of storylines and characters had to sacrifice themselves to lackluster adaptations so that future filmmakers could learn from their mistakes. Unfortunately, that’s left a long list of comic book properties that are deserving of another onscreen look but that Hollywood has already been scared off of.

Luckily, there’s another avenue for adaptation - television. Comic book stories are told serially, which typically makes them a better fit for TV than film anyway. So, there’s really no reason not to take some of the worst superhero movies ever and give them a second chance on cable or streaming services - though some are undoubtedly a better fit for home viewing than others.
