Before you begin reading this list, I want you to keep a couple things in mind: 1) All these characters are comic-accurate relative to the other characters on DC Television, don’t forget that when reading this. 2) I rated these characters with a few different criteria in mind: physical accuracy, characterization, and comic origins and backstories. I’ll admit, physical accuracy had a slight preferential advantage, but the other items were also heavily scrutinized. 3) This list doesn’t include full-CGI characters like King Shark or Gorilla Grodd. With that in mind, let’s begin!
Hey guys, Josh Behr here again with another DC television list to follow up my last two (here and here) from the past couple weeks. These are getting fun! Anyway… as most of you are aware, DC is arguably running the comic television game right now. This year will be featuring a massive crossover between four different shows – Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow – and a new Black Lightning show is in the pipeline. To say DC has made their mark on television is an understatement. Alongside the compelling comic-inspired stories, the shows we have now are giving us comic-accurate character after comic-accurate character. Some of which are much better at representing their print versions than others.
Scroll through the gallery to check out the ten DC television characters I believe are most accurate to their comic book counterparts.
