Superman has been the center of several amazing shows over the years, but which Superman show is the best of the five shows to feature the Man of Steel?

From the moment Superman debuted in the pages of Action Comics way back in 1938, the character became an instant success among comic book fans. Still, it’s hard to imagine anyone ever predicting just how big the character would go on to become.

While Clark Kent’s adventures might have begun in the pages of comics, the character would eventually take over both the big and small screen appearing in a number of television shows and movies over the years.

Although his time on the big screen has been a bit hit-and-miss, his time on the small screen has helped to gift fans with some of the best superhero shows to grace our screens. In fact, some might even argue that his legacy on the small screen far eclipses his silver screen legacy as TV has been where some of the most amazing Superman stories have been told over the years.

Through the many television series featuring the Man of Steel, DC has managed to deliver a series of shows that have defined generations with each adaptation offering its own unique take on the character. This has helped each show to shine and stand out among the crowded genre, but which exactly is the best of the shows to feature DC’s iconic hero?

Note: While Superman has appeared in a number of shows over the years, we’re only looking at live-action shows. As such, you will not see any of the character’s animated shows included on this list.
