5 Kick-Ass Superhero Shows to Watch Now that ‘Peacemaker’ is Done

Only James Gunn could have pulled it off. Those effects, the star cameos, blood, violence and, somehow, an emotionally charged journey that makes you love this group of misfit warriors – none of whom are actually superheroes, but mere mortals finding their moral centers. 

Unfortunately, Gunn has to finish his other misfit series – Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 at Marvel before he can jump back into writing the return of Peacemaker and Task Force X, 2.0 – or are they ARGUS now? 

So, we’ve compiled a list of the 5 superhero/misfit team shows to check out while you’re waiting for John Cena to don the ‘Dove of Peace’ again. 

The Boys

In this universe, superheroes are privatized – and not really doing a lot of good. The series plays out the theorem, ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ But it’s also about the disillusioned who see behind the curtain. 


Titans, the comic, of course, started out as Teen Titans – made up of Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, Speedy and Aqualad – expanding the roles of the teen companions to the primary DC heroes. 

Doom Patrol

Doom Patrol is easily the most bizarre of DC shows – yes, even trumping Peacemaker – and every season, the writers delight in mining more and more of the most obscure and outrageous storylines.
