Over the course of the last few years, superheroes have pretty much dominated the small screen, and it has been an absolute pleasure to watch. We've seen vigilantes fight intense street wars, powerful sorcerers use magic for nefarious purposes, and even super powered aliens that have to deal with the stress of everyday life. From Arrow, to Daredevil, to Luke Cage, and Supergirl, there seems to be a superhero for every tonal preference. With that in mind, we have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of 2016's best TV superhero moments. Some of these moments are amazing action sequences, while others are quieter, character-driven moments, but they all epitomize everything that we love about the comic book genre. Now let's get started with the most recent Marvel hero to debut on Netflix...

Luke Cage Netflix

Luke Cage Takes Down Crispus Attucks

Luke Cage is pretty much chock full of badass superhero moments (seriously, his showdown with Diamondback in the Season 1 finale is one for the books) but the absolute best moment from the entire first season comes during Luke's assault on Crispus Attucks. Set to Wu-Tang Clan's "Bring Da Ruckus" the sequence shows Luke using his formidable strength and durability to take down a legion of heavily armed thugs and plow through the reinforced defenses of the building. In a Netflix series that's packed to the brim with relevant social, there are several moments in the sequence that feel incredibly empowering -- while also remaining completely and utterly badass. The best part of the entire sequence is the fact that Luke doesn't use the money he steals from the gang compound for personal gain; he takes what he needs to get Pop's Barber Shop up and running again and leaves the rest for the cops.
