Disney+ has been the location for fans of a variety of Disney products to stream many of their beloved movies and TV shows from across the various Disney properties. Whether it be a classic Disney princess movie, a fantastical sci-fi film from the Star Wars universe, or any of the action-packed Marvel movies and shows, there are tons of options to choose from. Beyond simply being the home of classic Disney properties, the company has utilized the new platform to introduce new programming, including brand-new television series and films. Most of these originals and classic favorites aren’t available to stream on any other platform and often feature the return of fan-favorite characters, expanding on their stories and sometimes introducing new characters to fall in love with.

Superhero fare has been the most prolific of the Disney properties on Disney+, with brand-new stories in the Marvel Cinematic Universe being joined by old favorites utilizing the Marvel characters. Streaming both old and new shows, Disney+ gives the studio something they never had the chance to do before — create their stories with these heroes in a setting that far surpasses the typical two-hour mark on a movie, allowing them to fully flesh out the stories they want to in as much time as they need. Some of the heroes whose stories will be expanded on in future series on Disney+ include Echo, Ironheart, Daredevil, and even the return of the ’90s X-Men. Here are a few of the best superhero TV shows introduced on Disney+ to find out what you should binge next.

Updated on Jan. 5, 2024, by Ben Hathaway: This article has been updated with new features and information to keep the discussion fresh and relevant.

24 Secret Invasion (2023)

One Season

Was Secret Invasion a further sign that the MCU had become a copy of itself? Without a doubt. Is it one of the weakest MCU shows? Sure is. But, it’s a more coherent work than She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, that’s without a doubt. The only deep-down issue with Secret Invasion is that it only partially seems part of the MCU. After all, The Marvels was released just a few months later, also included Nick Fury, and made absolutely no mention of the Disney+ Skrulls show.

Why It’s Underrated

As its own thing, Secret Invasion has more of a personality than other Marvel shows. In fact, given its focus on espionage, it actually makes for a nice elongated companion piece to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. At the end of the day, it was just nice to have Nick Fury get his ownMCU project, not to mention the return of the wonderful Ben Mendelsohn.

23 X-Men (1992)

Five Seasons

X-Men

X-Men

Release Date
October 31, 1992

Cast
Catherine Disher , George Buza , Alyson Court , Lally Cadeau , Alison Sealy-Smith

Before Disney+’s revival-stroke-sequel X-Men ’97, Marvel fans are going to want to catch up on the events of X-Men: The Animated Series. One of the most well-regarded Marvel animated projects to date, X-Men was a solid hit for the Fox Kids Network for five consecutive seasons. The show follows the titular crew as they go about their usual crime-fighting exploits.

Why It’s Worth Revisiting

Even with 76 produced episodes, X-Men never got stale, not unlike DC’s Batman: The Animated Series. It helps that the comics lore is expansive, but the show wouldn’t work as well as it does had its creators just focused on replicating action and specific story beats…it had to focus on character, and X-Men: The Animated Series (and, presumably, X-Men ’97) excelled in that regard.

22 Spider-Man (1981)

One Season

Spider-Man

The second animated Spider-Man series after the 1967 version (which ran for three seasons and 52 episodes), 1981’s Spider-Man finds everyone’s friend Peter Parker going through the typical web-slinging motions. It is set apart from the 1967 version by its choice of antagonists which fans will be excited to see.

A Delightful Animated Watch

This Spider-Man series benefits from strong writing and an endearingly classic animation style. Like the show that preceded it, the age of the animation may put off viewers used to $250 million budgets, but for others, that will be part of the appeal. While it only ran for 26 episodes, the 1981 show gave Spidey a lot to do, and the diversity helps on a binge-watch. And, considering the show’s take on Kraven the Hunter, Doc Ock, and the like are all memorable, it’s an easy watch.

21 Silver Surfer: The Animated Series (1998)

One Season

Running for just one season, comprised of 13 episodes, Silver Surfer: The Animated Series was the earliest attempt to bring the title character into mainstream public consciousness, and the first attempt to let him down. That said, even if it didn’t take off, the Fox Kids Network show was clearly getting ready to go some interesting places, just as it had already done with its debut season.

Silver Surfer’s Starring Role

There’s a classic look to Silver Surfer (specifically via a combination of cel-shading and computer animation) that, like X-Men or Spider-Man, might put those viewers used to a mega-budget off a little. However, this is once again one of the main draws for those who love classic animation. For those who have felt slighted by the fact their favorite space-surfing hero has only starred in one lackluster movie, the show will make for a nice binge.

20 Jessica Jones (2015)

Three Seasons

When Netflix got involved in the superhero game, they went big by producing the first TV show set in the MCU. They would excel at the task by focusing on street-level superheroes like Jessica Jones. The show is the second entry in the interconnected universe. The series was created by Melissa Rosenberg and based on the character created by Brian Michael Bendis. The cast features the talents of Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, David Tennant, and many others. Most stories focus on the cases Jones took in her own agency, Alias Investigations.

A Great (Mostly) Stand-Alone Story

Unlike most Disney+ offerings, the shows produced by Netflix did their own thing with mere traces of interconnectivity. Jessica Jones wasn’t exactly a popular character in the comic books. Still, she was elevated as an A-lister, and her show introduced some of the most charismatic characters seen in Netflix’s corner of the MCU, such as Luke Cage and Killgrave. The show is filled with compelling storylines and some of the best villains ever crafted for the MCU. The A-list talent used for this production has fans wondering if we’ll ever get to see Jessica Jones back someday.

19 Luke Cage (2016)

Two Seasons

luke cage

Release Date
September 30, 2016

Seasons
2

Luke Cage is the third series to premiere in Netflix’s corner of the MCU. Cheo Hodari Coker developed the show. It featured an all-star cast of Black and Latino actors with names like Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Rosario Dawson, and many more, making the cut across two well-paced seasons. Like Jessica Jones, the show is focused on the adventures of street-level hero for hire Luke Cage, a former convict granted unbreakable skin and super strength in a series of illegal experiments. Now, he tries to keep the peace in Harlem even if it must be enforced violently.

A Refreshingly Updated Take on Luke Cage

Although nearly all Netflix shows stay faithful to the source material, Luke Cage went above and beyond the call of duty. Luke Cage is a tokenized character in the comics, but he’s amazingly modernized for this series, including bits of neo-blaxploitation, hip-hop culture, and a score that matches the series’ tone. Add the incredible gathering of talent, and you get one of the most underrated Marvel series that needs a revival ASAP. Special props go to the inclusion of Luke’s trademark catchphrase and a brief cameo in his original comic-accurate duds.

18 The Punisher (2017)

Two Seasons

The Punisher is a spinoff of Daredevil that premiered in 2017. Steve Lightfoot created the show, and it was the final show produced by Netflix in the MCU before all shows were canceled and brought back to Disney+. The series features the talents of Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ben Barnes, and Amber Rose Revah, among many others. The series chronicles the adventures of Frank Castle as he uncovers the mystery of who killed his family and embarks on his one-man mission seeking revenge.

A Gem of Marvel’s Netflix Era

Jon Bernthal killed it as Frank Castle from the moment he was introduced in the second season of Daredevil. The conflicted vigilante has no qualms about killing criminals, but he finds himself in moral conundrums when he faces people with better stances than his own. The show digs deep into the psyche of Frank Castle as we learn how broken he is and how far he’s willing to go to accomplish his mission. Frank is set to return in the upcoming series Daredevil: Born Again, and we can’t wait to see him acting up against the criminal world again.

17 The Defenders (2017)

One Season

The superhero event of 2017 wasn’t a big Marvel movie; it was a big Marvel TV show. Just as the studio did with phase one, Netflix gathered all their urban heroes under a single team in The Defenders. The miniseries was created by Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez and tied up specific loose plot points of the four main shows in the MCU Netflixverse in a single show. The show stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Rosario Dawson, and Sigourney Weaver, among many others. The series has the team going against Alexandra, a ruthless businesswoman who is a member of The Hand, the terrorist organization that hounds Daredevil and Elektra.

The Avengers of Television

Seeing all these characters get together felt very much like watching Thor, Cap, and Iron Man duke it out for the first time in Avengers. The show is a street-level offering with an antagonist more focused on corporate dealings. Still, it also has many fantastic elements related to the death and rebirth of Elektra, who’s heavily featured as the second antagonist of the story. Despite having a solid story and a large cast of characters that manages to be balanced, we never got to see a reunion of this team again, which is unfortunate. The Defenders, however, are known for having a lax membership, so we’ll likely see a new team version in the future.

16 The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (2010)

Two Seasons

Long forgotten in the crevices of multiple Marvel offerings, The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes still stands as the best animated Marvel show we’ve ever gotten. It was a series developed by Ciro Nieli, Joshua Fine, and Christopher Yost. The show was heavily inspired by several comic book arcs from the Marvel canon and featured some of the most accurate representations of these characters in any Marvel series to date. The main line-up of heroes was composed of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, and Black Panther, to name a few, with Ms. Marvel and Vision joining in season two.

Why This Is Marvel’s Best Animated Series

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes premiered in 2010 and had superficial synergy with the MCU at that moment. The show lasted two seasons with 56 episodes produced and was promptly replaced with Avengers Assemble, a more child-friendly offering of the team’s adventures. During its short stint, the series offered the best adaptation of Secret Invasion we have gotten, vastly superior to the recent work by Marvel Studios in the critically panned Disney+ show bearing the same namesake. Even after its cancelation, the show was acknowledged by then Marvel’s head of Television programming, Jeph Loeb, who stated Avengers Assemble was a continuation of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes grand’s scope.

If you’re in the mood for a complete story but want something longer than a movie, you should check these out.

15 Marvel’s Agent Carter (2015)

2 Seasons

Set in 1946, this show follows Agent Peggy Carter’s life after Captain America: The First Avenger. As an unmatched agent for the Strategic Scientific Reserve, she offers her unmatched talents as an officer and continues to support the organization. However, she was moved to the position of secretary after WWII due to the male-dominant mindset. Howard Stark becomes a target for treason and recruits Peggy to help clear his name. With her intelligence and exceptional espionage skills, she takes the dangerous mission and uncovers sinister discoveries.

Why It’s a Great Superhero Show

Here, there are elements of action, female empowerment, and a new perspective on the well-known Marvel Universe. Marvel’s Agent Carteroffers a nice touch to fans who miss Captain America: The First Avenger. Moreover, it furthers the story of Peggy Carter, which led to the character’s multiversal evolution in What If…?

14 Iron Fist (2017)

2 Seasons

Iron Fist follows Danny Rand, a person who was previously presumed dead, as he returns to the streets of New York to reclaim his family’s business. During his years away, he trained in the city of K’un-Lun as the next wielder of the Iron Fist. This power allows him to mold his chi and channel it through his fist, along with enhancing his exceptional martial arts skills. Now, Danny must reclaim his family’s legacy and fight to protect his city from invasions, crimes, and powerful enemies from the past.

A Show Elevated by Its Spectacular Performances

To be fair, there’s a large part of the Marvel fandom that didn’t think it was great, and that Danny Rand deserved more than Finn Jones gave him. However, Iron Fist was still a success due to its exceptional cast of secondary characters who ultimately stole the show. Iron Fist’s inclusion in the Defenders mini-series also makes it a must-watch for completionists.

13 The Gifted (2017)

2 Seasons

The Gifted follows the Strucker family as they navigate life with mutant powers. Andy and Lauren are siblings that are born mutants and their parents must now hide them from the government that wants to hunt and control mutants. To combat the government agency, they unite with other mutants to gain freedom for their children and create a new order in the world.

An Underrated and Thoughtful Hidden Gem

The Gifted offers an array of thought-provoking commentaries, challenges, and action-packed scenes. While it ultimately suffers from an absence of popular characters from the cinematic X-Men franchise, it gave other comic heroes like Thunderbird a chance to shine on their own. For anyone looking for something off the beaten Marvel path, this is a great place to start.

12 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013)

7 Seasons

As the name suggests, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is based on Marvel’s fan-favorite secret law enforcement organization. After The Avengers, Agent Phil decides to return to the organization to take up a new role. He creates a small, highly trained set of individuals that can cater to cases new, unclassified, and unknown. Now, this unit must navigate adventures between aliens, superheroes, and the unusual, to protect the world from various threats.

Why It Should Be Your Next Marvel Binge

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also explores themes of action, good and evil, loyalty, sacrifice, plot twists, and drama. It offers a story that can easily glue fans to their screens and aired for enough seasons that viewers will have something substantial to binge in between MCU films. It’s a well-set-up action series and it’s easy to understand why it’s such a favorite among fans.

11 I Am Groot (2022)

Everyone fell in love with Baby Groot in the course of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, but he quickly matured into a teenager for the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Thankfully, Disney+ offered a unique opportunity for Marvel, who delivered these two charming five-episode seasons of animated stories called I Am Groot. The six-minute episodes feature stories where Groot takes his first steps out of the pot we saw him in at the end of the original Guardians of the Galaxy film, his discovery of a new tiny civilization who see him as the hero they’ve been waiting for, and his attempts to get a nice little bath.

A Charming and Unique Installment in the MCU

The much-loved series was popular enough that a second season hit the streaming service as well. Each short explored a new learning lesson for Groot that took viewers on a fun ride. But the main thing that made the series great was watching Baby Groot in all of his adorably angry glory.

20 Best Classic Older Movies on Disney+ to Watch Right Now

Disney+ is more than just a home for Marvel and Star Wars, with plenty of classic older movies available to watch.

10 The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021)

1 Season

Read Our Review

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier brought fan favorites back to the screen, as Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes teamed up for this six-episode show. The story picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Sam Wilson has handed in the mantle of Captain America while Bucky goes through therapy. However, the US Government handed it to John Walker (Wyatt Russell), who later became known as a US Agent. Sam and Bucky reluctantly team up to stop a new threat and face their new role in society.

Mackie and Stan’s Chemistry Could Have Fueled Many More Seasons

The show utilized the chemistry between Mackie and Stan to bring about a series that feels like a buddy-cop movie as Sam and Bucky butt heads often while working together. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier focused on a lot of heavy, relevant topics in today’s society and proved that Sam Wilson is worthy of the Captain America mantle.

9 Daredevil (2015)

3 Seasons

Known as Marvel Comics’ first blind superhero, Matt Murdock is a lawyer who takes on the persona of Daredevil to fight crimes in New York. With his extraordinary hearing and fighting abilities, he is a formidable hero for those around him. Now, alongside his trusted allies, he must clean the plague that navigates the dark alleys of New York and serve justice to the victims.

A Powerful Beginning to Marvel’s TV Catalog

Daredevilis a show that offers a unique blend of drama, action, and superhero storytelling. It helped launch Netflix’s Defenders-related series with its gritty dedication to storytelling and character exploration. Charlie Cox’s reprisal of the role in the MCU only further highlights how much fans fell in love with his take on Matt Murdock.

8 She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022)

1 Season

Read Our Review

After a car accident exposes her to her superhero cousin Bruce Wayne’s (a.k.a. The Hulk, portrayed by Mark Ruffalo) blood, Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) becomes the She-Hulk. Determined that her transformation won’t change her life, Jennifer attempts to resume her life as a lawyer at the District Attorney’s office in Los Angeles, California, only for her plans to be foiled when she is exposed. She loses her dream job and finds the only job offered in its place is as the special legal representative at a high-end law firm representing other superpowered clients, including her cousin’s old nemesis Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), better known as The Abomination.

A Refreshing Comedic Installment

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law marked a rare foray into the world of comedy for the MCU. The ridiculous situations she found herself in, coupled with Jennifer’s tendency to break the fourth wall to discuss the various shenanigans directly with the audience, meant the show was a welcome change. One can only hope that when another character infamous for breaking the fourth wall, Deadpool, makes his way into the MCU, these two will have a fourth wall break-off.

7 Hawkeye (2021)

Post Avengers: Endgame, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) is trying to put the past behind him and enjoy the time he has with his family now that they’ve returned from The Blip. However, when Kate Bishop (played by Hailee Steinfeld) borrows his old Ronan outfit and stirs up trouble with some of his enemies, he feels the need to fix his mistakes and keep her out of trouble. In Hawkeye, the duo teams up to try and clear Kate’s name quickly, so Clint can make it home in time for Christmas.

Why It’s a Great Superhero Show

Hawkeye is perhaps one of the most underrated of the original Avengers, as he doesn’t have traditional superpowers and is just a very good archer. The series depicts the nitty-gritty details of that side of him, showing his injuries after getting beaten up and humanizing him by showing him self-medicating with bags of frozen vegetables. Not only is it a great series for the overlooked Avenger, but it’s also a great introduction to Kate Bishop, and fans hope to see more of her in the MCU.

6 What If…? (2020)

Franchise
Marvel

Marvel’s What If…? was a surprising change of pace for the studio in the summer of 2021. Throughout 9 episodes, the narrator known as The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) takes the audience through different stories of the multiverse. These universes pose questions like “What if T’Challa became a Star-Lord?” and introduce them with a story set in another segment of the multiverse where they were true. The through-line of the series is that The Watcher’s one vow is he cannot interfere with the universes, no matter how much he may want to. This grows harder and harder for him to do as a growing threat plans to harm the multiverse.

A Speculative Animated Journey

While Marvel has produced animated series before, they were mostly designed for kids, premiering on the Disney Channel or Disney XD. They also never tied into the MCU directly, using the comics to create their own stories instead. The creators of this series combined both, using the comics as inspiration but also using several references to the MCU throughout. They even had popular actors returning to voice their characters, including Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury).

5 Moon Knight (2022)

1 Season

Read Our Review

Steven Grant is a mild-mannered employee at a museum in London, England, simply trying to get through his daily life and maybe even go on a date with a girl. He has no idea why he sometimes wakes up in strange places, missing days of his life. Until one day, he’s drawn into a conflict he doesn’t understand and discovers that he is, in fact, one of at least two distinct personalities inhabiting his own body. In reality, he was born Marc Spector, a disgraced army veteran who was shot and left for dead in Egypt, where he made a pact with the Khonsu, the god of the moon, who brings Marc back from the brink as long as he serves as his avatar on Earth. In the form of the Moon Knight, Marc must fight Khonsu’s battles, trying to keep a former avatar from destroying the world.

Why It’s a Great Superhero Show

Having already introduced the world to the Norse Gods in the Thor franchise, Moon Knight expanded the lore of the MCU to include Egyptian Mythology and its deities. It also took a deep dive into the life of someone living with dissociative identity disorder, where at least two distinct personalities inhabit the same body. Oscar Isaac gave one of the best performances of the entire MCU franchise playing multiple characters, sometimes in the same scene. Though there’s been no word yet of a second series of Moon Knight, the final shot of the first season left no doubt that there’s still much more story to tell as a third personality, Jake Lockley, was introduced.
