List of Superhero TV shows

This list attempts to compile all superhero TV shows (animated and live-action). Since the definition of 'superhero' is a bit vague, it's possible that I've missed some series. In fact, it's down right likely that I've missed some. Oh well.

I've organized this list to group the shows based on hero.
