18. YOUNG JUSTICE (Cartoon Network, 2011-Present)

It’s still early into its run, but Young Justice has already shown that it is a worthy successor to the comic book shows that came before it, such as Justice League and Teen Titans. Focusing on a group of younger heroes like Robin, Aqualad, Red Arrow, and Kid Flash, the show presents every episode with the type of widescreen aesthetics of a Hollywood blockbuster.

It’s sleek, action-packed, and incredibly compelling as the neophyte super team is charged with fending off some of the heaviest hitters in the DC Universe, while also struggling with their own hang-ups and immaturity. Boasting a roster of writers plucked from the comic book world, Young Justice is an incredibly smart show that has been gaining momentum since its debut.
