25. Powerless (2017)

The 2010s are an interesting period of television to look back on. With the success of the Arrowverse on the small screen and the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen, almost every TV network wanted in on the superhero game. NBC tried its hand at that in 2014 with Constantine and again in 2017 with Powerless. It was once again an unfortunately short-lived experiment.

The thing that made Powerless different was that it was a DC sitcom. It was also one of the few DC shows not to be directly based on a comic book character. The series starred Vanessa Hudgens as the director of Research & Development for Wayne Security and it was her job to try and make sure the people in cities impacted by regular superhero/villain showdowns felt a bit safer. She was joined by Alan Tudyk and it even featured appearances from Superman's Mark McClure and legendary Batman star Adam West.

The show was very funny, and it had real potential for growth. It was different, standing out in a field of sitcoms and superhero dramas as an unusual blend between the two. The sad thing is that it never really got the chance to hit its stride before it was cancelled. Sitcoms need a chance to grow, and with a bigger budget and lower ratings, this one was cut down before it got the chance to flourish.
