Man, DCTV is reaching both hands into their stable of characters this season:

In the past few months alone, we've had announcements/casting for Maxwell Lord, Jay Garrick, Livewire, Reactron, Red Tornado, Lucy Lane, Kid Flash, Constantine (again), and Vixen (animated).....good to be a DC comics fan these days!

Weird that, broadly speaking, Marvel has got films figured out and DC has the market on TV, but not necessarily vice versa.

Not to be a DC guy(though i am)- you can argue which is a better character Superman vs Spiderman etc...but once you go 20 characters deep i think DC has a much better roster of characters. There villians are more defined, the minor characters are better-and they have plenty of characters from say a western or actual Detective comic to go back to. The fact that DC bought 5 minor comic companies from the golden and silver age helps as well.

And Marvel has the problem that well:Rights. Sony owns all the characters who first appeared in a Spiderman book, Fox Xmen and Fantastic Four(which are a lot). Hell Universal has rights to Namor and the Submarriner and there actually quite a few characters who first appeared in that to. Hell Warner Brothers(which owns DC) also has Blade and a fair amount of Marvel Horror Characters.

That does force marvel to get creative ( i mean agent carter show is based on a comic character who appeared for like a page in the 40s) which can help them. But..yeah not great.

And from a superheroic standpoint-hurt by the fact that in the classic era, Stan Lee couldn't write or be intrested in a woman if she wasn't just about to be on days of our lives.

Which goes to Dr. Lighyt who when written well and give time to shine a kind of intresting take on the Superheroine as someone who has concept of a life, without being a soap opera. or well the other dr. Light e of my favorite Villians in the: Well he can be silly or serious depending on the day category. Good choices.
