With the 2014 fall television season creeping upon us like the dumb Galactacus cloud, it's looking to be a pretty sweet year for series based on comic book heroes. From returning favorites like Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to promising new shows like The Flash, Agent Carter and Gotham, TV seems to be jumping headfirst into many different corners of graphic multiverse. So today, we're throwing up a list of heroes (and others) who deserve their piece of this new frontier. Here's 'Arrow,' 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' and Beyond - Part 1 of 3: DC Comics!
Polarizing as it is, one thing MTV has going for it is uncanny ability to bring in young adult viewers with amazingly mediocre shows. Now, I’m not saying that a Stephanie Brown show would be mediocre or should be mediocre. That’s just MTV. However, if they could get a good EP (say, “Buffy”’s Marti Noxon), the show might have a chance. The pre-teen/teen daughter of a super(?)villain, the Cluemaster, who stalks the night seeking to unravel her father’s schemes in Gotham seems like a great jumping off point for some compelling drama. And MTV’s habit of producing female-led series and attaching up and coming music stars to its programming can only help the cause.
