A great poster is a piece of fine art. It used to be that posters were geared towards film and the theater but in recent years the small screen has adapted the promotional tool with great results.

The television poster has so many more jobs than most people realize. It has to sell the show without the benefit of a trailer. It has to present the cast, pitch what the show is about, and show some plot, while not spoiling too much. And we all know with superheroes, everyone has a very specific take on his or her favorite hero.

With TV adopting posters as a way to market new superhero shows we have even more opportunities to see our favorite heroes in their original printed medium, but through the perspective of a television show. (There are some golden oldies in here too, check out that classic '70s Spider-Man!)

Enjoy this look back at the best superhero TV posters of all time! Not all of them could make the cut, and excluding them wasn't easy, so vote up your favorites below to find out which is the greatest superhero TV poster ever!
