25. The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man might now refer to the underrated Andrew Garfield-led Spider-Man movie franchise but once upon a time it referred to a 1977 CBS TV series centered around the character. With Nicholas Hammond in the lead role, the show was the first ever superhero drama series based on a Marvel Comics character, so it seems pretty fitting that they went with Spidey.

However, there were some issues with the show. For starters, the suit wasn't very good. Yes, it was the '70s, but neither it nor the production values have aged as well as other superhero shows of the time like Wonder Woman. It was also a frustrating watch for comic book fans, as it completely overlooked the source material - especially in its second season, as CBS attempted to appeal to older audiences. It was an attempt to make the show more grounded, less supernatural, and more of a procedural. But like many '70s shows, the attempts to modernize programs back then have ultimately dated them by today's standards.

From the lack of notable villains to the fact that it just never really got a chance to get off the ground, The Amazing Spider-Man is an all-but forgotten piece of history. It didn't change the game in the way that, say, Batman or Wonder Woman did, but it is an entertaining enough watch if you overlook the fact that it tries to ignore the comics. Nicholas Hammond also does a great job at playing Peter Parker.
