Returning to Star City, he became a vigilante who fought against the corrupt and helped those in need, in true Robin Hood style. As with “Gotham”, this series has also ended so it seems like a good plan to get involved.
And it is that, with so many stories to tell, “Arrow” is a great series to binge on Netflix. The series had its ups and downs, but has put its own flaws behind it to have some of the best moments in superhero television.

Doom Patrol (2019)
There are adaptations of obscure characters from the comics, and then there’s “Doom Patrol,” a series based on DC’s craziest superhero team.
Until now, it was only available on the streaming platform and digital comics of DC Comics by subscription, but after its first season, HBO stepped in to finance the second season of “Doom Patrol” and move the original season to the platform.

The series employs a very light tone and a higher degree of wackiness than in the comics. This one also focuses on big wacky villains, like the Harlequin, Gorilla Grodd, and the Reverse-Flash. There is a lot to unravel in this series, but it will be worth it for many new viewers.
the series too pays great homage to the 80’s Flash series, which is sure to do wonders for the most fans. You can enjoy all 8 seasons on HBO Max.

We are talking about a man who believes in peace at any price no matter how many people he has to kill to get it. This antihero faces an identity crisis as he must team up with some old acquaintances to save the world.
These elements of the argument allow to claim as a really adult series: violence, gore, nudity, drug use, swearing, murder… On January 13, 2022, he trained on HBO Max. Enjoy it from the following link and let yourself be surprised.
Gotham has recently ended its long run. It started as a police series with Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock and the public response was not too good. However, as the series entered the history of batman and she began to get fully involved in all her stories, people began to be interested in her.
The moment that he wasn’t afraid to lean on Batman was the moment that he started to be good for a lot of fans, that now having finished, surely you can enjoy it this summer in one go.
Also, being on Netflix, you can skip episodes or arcs you don’t want to see, which makes for a better experience than those who followed the series from the beginning, because admittedly there are some unattractive moments.
Despite the fact that its rights belong to the DC publishing house, it is not integrated into the DC universe, (so here we are in a kind of limbo), but rather it is a totally different world and characters. This work, as many of you know, is based on the Alan Moore comic of the same name.
The story takes place in an alternate version of history in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a few decades after the original story. After a white supremacist group terrorize minorities and the police, they are forced to hide their identity with masks.
the detective Angela Abar will then put on the mask of Sister Night to fight racists and a larger conspiracy.
At the moment it only has one season on HBO Max and if you enjoyed his great movie, surely this minimum adaptation will convince you and, according to our colleagues at Hobby Consoles, it is close to perfection.
