Superheroes at the moment, with the upswing in comic inspired movies, television shows and cartoons at a peak, are most definitely NOT underrated. But what if I told you that some of these characters still are, in fact, underrated? That’s what I’m telling you, if you didn’t catch that…

The CW’s Arrowverse is set to return the week of January 23rd, with new episodes of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, so what better time than now to take a look back at 9 full seasons (and 4 half seasons) of Superheroic overload and talk about what I might have done differently had I taken control of the reigns of DCTV…
