There’s been no shortage of superhero shows in recent years, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe increasingly embracing television – and many other stories leaning into the comic book craze. The year 2022 has brought a number of new superhero series to the scene, with several returning hits as well. Here are our four favorite superhero shows of 2022, ranked from worst to best.
4. “She-Hulk” is a breath of fresh air from the Marvel Cinematic Universe
She-Hulk proved a somewhat controversial addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but there’s no denying that it’s one step closer to the stereotypical superhero shows we’ve come to expect in 2022. In fact, the Disney+ series marks a breath of fresh air for the MCU. With his often episodic storylines, quick wit and social conscience, She-Hulk stands out from previous projects in the franchise.
These qualities are among the many reasons that She-Hulk is one of our best superhero shows of 2022. Of course, Tatiana Maslany’s performance as Jen Walters/She-Hulk puts the series on this list as well. Fingers crossed, we’ll see more of the actor in future Marvel releases.
She-Hulk is currently streaming on Disney+.
3. “Moon Knight” takes the superhero origin story for a unique twist
Moon Knight was one of the most anticipated releases in Marvel’s Phase 4 lineup, and the Oscar Isaac-led series didn’t disappoint. The Disney+ show delivered a unique origin story, emphasizing mental illness and treating the subject with care. He also delivered a tale wrought with fascinating Egyptian mythology. And keeping the introduction of Marc Spector (Oscar Isaac) separate from the rest of the MCU is allowed. Moon Knight really shine by itself.
With award-winning performances from Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke and a captivating story from start to finish, Moon Knight is without a doubt one of the best superhero shows of 2022. It’s one of Marvel Phase 4’s strongest projects, and it deserves another batch of episodes on Disney+.

2. ‘Peacemaker’ proves the DCEU should look into its superhero shows
The DC Extended Universe has seen a lot of upheavals in 2022, but Peacemaker remains one of his strongest projects of the year. In fact, with Peacemaker Being among the DCEU’s best recent releases, we’re hoping the franchise leans more into superhero shows as it moves in a whole new direction.
From the mind of James Gunn, Peacemaker follows John Cena’s anti-hero from The Suicide Squad as he embarks on yet another black-ops mission. This leads to some surprisingly sincere reflection on the character’s part. It also features the usual Gunn project shenanigans: hilarious banter, bonkers twists and a winning soundtrack. Whether Peacemaker is something to judge by, the DCEU is in good hands.
Peacemaker streams exclusively on HBO Max.
1. Although they poke fun at superhero shows, “The Boys” is the best of them
The boys is best known for poking fun at the superhero shows we all know and love, but in doing so it’s become one of the most compelling additions to the genre – and certainly the best to come out in 2022.
The boys Season 3 hit Prime Video in June, and it’s arguably the show’s strongest release yet. Billy Butcher’s (Karl Urban) newfound powers, Jensen Ackles’ debut as Soldier Boy, and Homelander’s (Antony Starr) continued descent into villainy are all highlights of the final episodes. The Amazon series’ stakes keep rising, and its social commentary feels more necessary with each passing season.
The boys is currently streaming on Prime Video.
