Marvel has been using Netflix to great effect. Taking full advantage of the digital platform and the untethered storytelling it allows creators to offer, Marvel has been taking iconic comic book characters such as Daredevil and Iron Fist and showing them in a new light over the past few years on Netflix.
The studio’s efforts have taken the heroes (and sometimes even the anti-heroes) of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in different directions through 13-part adventures, diving more into what makes them tick than the films. For the most part, these characters have been well thought out and the actors inhibating the roles have done a great job making them their own.
Of course, The Defenders is the culmination of what Marvel has been working towards with these shows. Arriving later this month, the 8-episode series is set to unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist against a threat greater than anything they’ve faced before.
With the series only a few days away it is a great time to look at each of the Netflix heroes and see where they rank from worst to best. Click next to have a look!
