2018 Superhero TV: Dates For New And Returning Shows

Not to be outdone by their big screen blockbuster brethren, TV superheroes have exploded in popularity in recent years, and an increasing number of studios and networks are bringing comic book heroes and villains to the small screen. Even before the new year officially starts, fans are already guaranteed over 25 different superhero TV shows in 2018, with live-action favorites sharing the schedule with animated hits. And we'll definitely hear about even more on the way as the months go by.

To keep things neat and orderly -- which is the only way the superhero Neat and Orderly Man would have it -- we've lined up all the dates and times for Superhero TV in 2018. We'll be updating this schedule throughout the year as new dates are announced, so be sure to bookmark and check back. If only we could zip into the future like Barry Allen can.
