Five Reasons Arrow Is the Best Comic Book Show on the Air

CB: At the outset: Please understand this isn’t a Marvel vs. DC thing. I’m sure that’s where the comments thread will go, but…ugh.
It’s also not just about the already-getting-old fanboy complaint that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t have enough superheroes. I get (on some level) what they’re trying to do, and think it could work, if done right.

It's not exactly difficult to be #1 when your only competition is Agents Of Shield.

Ever heard of The Walking Dead?

i almost forgot walking dead is also a comic book show, i have to say that walking dead for now holds the spot of best tv show that originated from the comics and i have to say if a lot of people like the tv show they would be surprise that the original material was as good or even better.

Not like theres many Comic book shows on TV to compete with.

I don't think Arrow is that good to be honest, my comic book instinct inside me gets in the way when watching it pointing stuff out and that.

I mean now they are adding the Flash for the new season despite trying to capture this "plausible" "realistic" approach like Nolan's Batman for the first series.

Maybe they realize that successful superheroes are unrealistic to begin with and are taking the Hancock approach: Put superheroes, powers and all, in a realistic world that doesn't just accept them with open arms.

It just seems silly to suddenly change directions now with what they have already established for an entire series

I always question the intentions of people who write stuff like this. Superlative anything will always be immediately self-evident; I find that when someone feels the need to overexplain why something is the best, it usually isn't.

Arrow isn't bad, it's just mediocre, like S.H.I.E.L.D.

What other competition is there really? There aren't that many comic book shows on TV.
