Ultimate '10s superhero show: ‘Arrow’ or ‘Daredevil’?

Superhero TV shows have come a long, long way since the well-intentioned but generally cornball shows of earlier decades. Bigger budgets, better special effects, improved fight coordination and a greater respect for source material have all helped make the last ten years a golden age of comic book TV. We’re facing off the best-loved superhero shows of the decade, starting with DC's often gritty "Arrow" and Marvel's brutal "Daredevil." Which do you love most?

In the first round, it's DC's "Arrow," which follows a dark and gritty archer versus Marvel's "Daredevil," which chronicled the crimefighting life of a blind, but brutal martial arts vigilante of Hell's Kitchen (who other senses are enhanced). Don't forget to click on the bracket below and cast your vote for your other superhero show matchups!

Recent DC television adaptations have stayed away from featuring the big three heroes (Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman) while referencing them in various ways, peripherally. In many ways, “Arrow” is the CW’s version of Batman. He’s an ultra-rich, gadget-heavy crime fighting vigilante with a heap of internal darkness. Over time, the show has moved in a slightly less gritty direction, even joking about the Green Arrow’s (Stephen Amell) similarities to the Dark Knight. As its eighth and final season approaches, fans only want more.

Watch this season eight teaser of "Arrow" below.

“Daredevil” marked Netflix’s debut in the comic adaptation realm, and many fans feel it has yet to be topped. The fight sequences, often reminiscent of Hong Kong action films, are among the best ever filmed. More than action alone, "Daredevil" shows the inner struggles and crises of faith deep within Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), the blind lawyer turned hero of Hell’s Kitchen. In some ways, Daredevil is just as much the story of the villainous Kingpin, played superbly by Vincent D’Onofrio, who evokes both sympathy and revulsion in turn.
