Only a few superhero TV shows manage to hit the right balance between comedy, romance, drama, and some kickass action. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is surely one of them. The show is about a time-traveling rogue named Rip Hunter who has seen glimpses of the horrifying apocalyptic future that has been a consequence of many past events. Rip Hunter takes it up as his responsibility to save the world from this grim fate and travels back in time to assemble a group of heroes and villains who may be the only hope for the future of mankind. But can this ragtag team defy the fate that the world is set to meet or are they going to fail miserably? This show is silly, funny, weird and visually stunning, and if you have a good sense of humor and an ability to let go of your comic book grudges, then you should start watching it today itself.

You can watch many of the below mentioned shows like Legends of Tomorrow on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
15. Arrow (2012)
‘Arrow’ is like the love child of Castaway and Batman Begins. It’s about a spoiled and pampered billionaire playboy named Oliver Queen who finds himself lost on a distant island after his Yacht sinks in a storm. Everyone else on the Yacht dies which includes his father who makes him promise that he will survive and return to home to clean up his fathers’ mess. Five years later Oliver finds his way back home, but now he is not who he used to be. He’s a completely changed man who has only one goal- keep his promise and clean up the city he grew up in. One by one he targets the people who have been polluting the city and sets out to serve justice as a masked vigilante who is armed with nothing but a bow and arrow.
14. The Flash (2014)
Remember how so many of us tried getting bitten by spiders in the hope that we too would become spiderman back when the first Spiderman film had come out. I’m so glad it wasn’t ‘The Flash‘ movies or series that made it big back in the day because in this one the protagonist, Barry Allen, gets struck by lightning (don’t try this at home or anywhere) and wakes up nine months after this incident to discover that he has the power of super speed. Barry later realizes that a few other people were affected by the same storm that gave him his powers and most of them are now using their powers for evil deeds. Determined to protect his city, Barry fights these other superhumans and makes a difference. But with time Barry will also run into forces that may not have the best intentions but may try to manipulate him and misuse his power and he must learn to confront them. All DC fans out there should surely give this one a go.
