9. Swamp Thing (2019)

Long before making mature comic book content for streaming services was as regular a thing as it is now, Swamp Thing was entertaining audiences on the short-lived DC Universe streaming service. The show made headlines when it was cancelled immediately after it premiered for a multitude of senseless reasons that history won't be kind to, but that doesn't change the fact that the show was lightning in a bottle that deserved so much better than the treatment it got.

Swamp Thing is a character that lends himself to the horror genre well, and the series wasted little time exploring that, delivering up its fair share of intimidating and violent sequences early on. Alec Holland's evolution into the title character isn't pretty either, but it's all so compelling to watch (no matter how much you want to look away from it at times). That's how you know you have a good horror series on your hands.

Swamp Thing's run may have been short but it was a horrifying thrill-ride led by one of DC's most underrated characters (and I mean that in the nicest of ways). It hit the ground running and really could have evolved into one of the greatest comic book shows of all time had it not been cancelled so soon into its run. It was also one of DC's most interesting and original shows and it holds up surprisingly well as a 10-part movie.

What we got was insanely satisfying, but the show deserved the chance to give us a bit more.
