Stargirl, the newest show on both DC Universe and the CW, runs with the idea of legacy heroes.
“Legendary” and “iconic” are words that get tossed around a bit too easily and often these days, but sometimes they apply. In 1986, Alan Moore wrote a stunningly different comic book limited series called the Watchmen.
The CW has been doing a good to great job of adapting the DC Universe to live action, depending on the show and/or episode. The majority of the shows are in a shared universe, like the Marvel/Netflix ones were, and they’ve been doing a good job of building a comprehensive world.
In 1963, a team dubbed “The World’s Strangest Superheroes” made their debut. While the description of a team of people with freakish powers, protecting a world that fears them, led by a brilliant man in a wheelchair might sound familiar, the Doom Patrol actually appeared a few months before Marvel’s X-Men.
It’s been a rough several years to be a fan of DC Comics’ Teen Titans.
I’m fairly well-read in most superhero comic books. I don’t manage to read everything, because I don’t have that kind of time or money. Marvel’s Runaways is one of the properties I know next to nothing about, so I was intrigued when I heard it was getting made in to a live action series on Hulu.
Marvel continues its takeover of every available network, as Cloak and Dagger come to Freeform.
