The best movies and shows like Arrow feature superheroes with and without powers, but also vigilantes, and crimefighters.

What programs will you vote to the top of this list? Maybe you're a fan of The Dark Knight Rises, a Batman film all about a regular man who takes the law into his own hands when it fails to match up to the criminal threat within his city.
