Ultimate '10s superhero show: 'The Gifted’ or ‘Titans’?

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 Marvel/Fox's Mutant Underground in "The Gifted" and DC Universe's live-action young adult heroes in "Titans." Which show do you love most?

"The Gifted" was a spinoff series in Fox's X-Men Universe. The series followed an array of powerful and persevering mutants who were being hunted by the government. The show was canceled after two seasons, as Fox's hold on X-Men-related properties ended when Disney acquired the company. Hence, we'll someday see mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nevertheless, "The Gifted" definitely had a cult following and the series chronicled in detail xenophobia, prejudice and bigotry and what it's like to be hunted for being who you are. The series holds a fresh rating of 79 percent and an audience score of 69 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication).

DC Universe's "Titans" gave us a live-action version of the heroes we all either fell in love with in the comics or on the animated series "Teen Titans" in '00s. But the live-action series is definitely different from the cartoon. "Titans" is darker and grittier. It's not really campy at all like its DC Universe counterpart "Doom Patrol" with lots of gore and fatalities. The slow burner takes its time with the origins stories of most of the characters, especially with Robin and Raven. Something tells us we'll learn more about the assemblage of the young heroes in season two. "Titans" holds a fresh rating of 80 percent and an audience score of 74 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication).
