Okay, we know that there have been too many superhero movies and shows, including those from Marvel. However, there are never enough superheroes for some of us, as we lack them in real life. We like to be wrapped around the eternal fight between good and evil and the superheroes' extraordinary powers. This might be as we all nourish the child inside us once obsessed with comic books or simply like this type of TV shows and movies. Nevertheless, let's see what are the best Marvel TV shows, according to us. 

10. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

"The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" sounds so promising

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier teamed up to resolve some issues, work together and get along. After the death of Captain America, the world has decided that his successor must be proclaimed. However, Falcon and the Winter Soldier have something to say regarding that. 

Along with finding the worthy replacement to fill the shoes of the Capitan America, they fight the villain or, in this case, the angsty teenager who kills for no apparent reason. The fans rated the show poorly, saying it's too political and messy. Thus, this is probably the reason why it had only one season.  

9. Loki

Loki, the villain we all love!

The villain we must love! After the events in "Avengers: Endgame," an alternate version of Loki was created in a new timeline. The plot revolves around Loki's attempts to destroy timekeepers and finding the love of his life - a female version of himself. 

Tom Hiddleston portrays the role of Loki like in movies, while Owen Willson is an excellent addition as Mobius. We must admit that we didn't adore "Loki" at first glimpse, but it has a lot of awesome scenes. 

The first season has six episodes, and it was released in 2021. 

8. Iron Fist

Danny Rand, AKA Iron Fist, fights for the safety of the citizens of New York City

The story revolves around a billionaire, Danny Rand (Finn Jones), returning to New York City after missing for fifteen years. Hence, he's trying to reconnect with his past and fulfill his destiny. Along with his incredible kung-fu skills, he holds a mystical force, the famous Iron Fist. In the absence of Matt Murdock/Daredevil, he defends the metropolis from the criminals. 

On his journey, he is assisted by Colleen Wing, owner of Chikara Dojo and a martial artist. Unfortunately, "Iron Fist" was canceled after just two seasons. Although it had pretty bad reviews, it gained a remarkable fan base. 

7. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are there to protect the world from the unknown

After the battle of New York, everything has changed. Therefore, to protect the world from new enemies, Phil Coulson forms S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division), a worldwide law-enforcement organization. The group employs an elite team of agents who investigate strange occurrences around the globe and beyond. 

Despite this, the threats against the world become more bizarre and dangerous with the rise of new supervillains. Consequently, the new superheroes need to save the day, as each of them has some incredible skills. The series was canceled after seven seasons

6. WandaVision

If Wanda doesn't like the reality, she can make one that suits her

Vision and Wanda Maximoff, two super-powered beings living their ideal residential lives, begin to suspect that the whole shebang is not as it seems… After Wanda has a mental breakdown in Avengers, Vision dies, and she creates an alternate reality in which he and their twins live in a suburban town. 

Hence, Wanda and Vision are happy, surrounded by cheerful residents, much like in the old sitcoms. However, they start to suspect that something is way off. "WandaVision" had only one season (as planned), giving Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany leading roles.  

5. The Defenders

When you are in trouble, it would be nice to have the Defenders on your side

An extraordinary group of individuals with special powers teams up to defend New York City. Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist get together to fight the common enemy – the Hand. These solitary heroes always act on their own except when the mutual cause is more significant than their personal tasks. 

These four superheroes come across each other in other series. Still, the Defenders are all about them working together, as the enemy is too powerful to take him on their own. We must say that it's pretty exciting to watch these particular solitary heroes work together. Sadly, the "Defenders" had only a single season. 

4. The Punisher

Losing the family can turn a man into a killing machine

Frank Castle, AKA the Punisher, suffers from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), seeking revenge after losing his family. He's tormented by the great family tragedy and stops at nothing to punish those responsible. Hence, he's the most loved anti-hero. Although, when watching his cruel ways to execute criminals, we may wonder if the Punisher is good or evil? 

Although he uses some harsh methods, in the end, he's just a good guy who suffered so much injustice in his life. Until now, we got only two seasons. Although it has been canceled, we hope there will be the third one, as Jon Bernthal's performance is excellent.   

3. Luke Cage

Luke Cage is drawn to fight crime to make Harlem a better place

The plot takes us to Harlem, where Carl Lucas, a former convict, tries to live an everyday life under the name of Luke Cage. Luke has become a fugitive after participating in an experiment gone wrong, leaving him with unbreakable skin and super strength. Along the way, he fights crime in his neighborhood, soon becoming one of the most beloved heroes in Harlem. This character appears in "Jessica Jones and Defenders."

The main role was portrayed by Mike Colter, who gained 30 pounds of muscle for the role. Although the series had only two seasons, it might be renewed.

2. Daredevil

Vigilante and a lawyer at the same time

Matt Murdock is a blind lawyer who leads a double life as the superhero Daredevil. This vigilante doesn't have a superpower but only incredible senses. As he lost his eyesight at a young age, that allowed him to see the world uniquely and powerfully. Thus, by day Matt is a lawyer, becoming Daredevil during the night and fighting crime. 

Therefore, he strives to make his neighborhood – Hell's Kitchen a safer place. As a lawyer, he has loyal friends, and as a vigilante, he fights crime on his own. 

1. Jessica Jones

We don't expect a superhero with so many issues as Jessica Jones

In the end, we have a disturbed, badass woman with a short superhero career - Jessica Jones. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica settles in Hell's Kitchen. Then, she opens up a detective agency dealing with people with special abilities. However, she's an alcoholic with a super strength who's struggling to get through each day. But in the end, she's always on the good side. 

Krysten Ritter did a great job portraying Jessica as a sarcastic, rough on the edges person who is sometimes a total asshole. Yet, at all of her self-absorbance, deep down, she is a caring and good person.

The eternal struggle between good and evil will never lack an audience. Moreover, Marvel's superheroes are so unique and special, often bordering between heroes and anti-heroes and always tormented with a personal tragedy. Once you hook up on these vigilantes, you'll be addicted for life! If you didn't find your favorite superhero, now is the time to start looking, so enjoy exploring.
