While The CW (DC) and Netflix (Marvel) dominated the superhero show genre throughout the '10s, Amazon Prime's "The Tick" pilot premiered in 2016. "The Tick" follows the big, weird strongman in a blue Tick suit and his buddy Arthur as they battle a reemerged supervillain The Terror. The show has been a campy, clever, adventurous and hilarious trip ever since then. While the series was canceled after two seasons, "The Tick" holds a fresh rating of 95 percent, an audience score of 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication) and a fanbase for breathing new life into the franchise.

"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).
