As long as we have all had cartoons, superheroes have been taking the front stage. These heroes have colorful, bright, costumes and pretty outlandish adventures and these fit way better in cartoons than any other medium. But since very few actually want to see a cartoon that stars the Multi-Alien and Ultra, it soon becomes necessary to remake these cartoons and feature the superheroes that we have seen.
We can agree that not all the remakes are great. At times it takes almost 10 years for a certain superheroes to get their reboot series and so the quality of the animation usually improves. Sometimes, we have seen that the previous series had been created in an era that had been way more creatively restricting, and as a result, the reboot takes advantage of this freedom and makes it a way more superior adaptation. Here we have for you 8 epic superhero cartoon remakes that are way better than the original:
1. SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN (BETTER THAN SPIDER-MAN: TAS)
The ’90s Spider-Man series did not stand a chance against it reboot, the remake, 2008 Spectacular Spider-Man. It features a much younger, Peter Parker and the Spectacular Spider-Man takes a lot of time to build up every character. We saw that even the villains like Sandman or Rhino had been dealt with pretty well. This ensured that the viewers understood all the characters.
2. YOUNG JUSTICE (BETTER THAN: TEEN TITANS)
Yes, Teen Titans is a great cartoon that managed to become loved by fans because of the hilarious and relatable heroes but it is nothing compared to Young Justice. The Teen Titans had focused on the children, and Young Justice really did feel like the story of the DC Universe that had been told by teens.
3. JUSTICE LEAGUE (BETTER THAN SUPERFRIENDS)
The World’s Greatest Heroes had abruptly left the television for 10 years and then returned with Justice League that had premiered in the year, 2001. Bruce Timm had brought the very same characters, well-written characters and animation style back to this series and it became a huge hit.
4. 2011 THUNDERCATS (BETTER THAN ’80s THUNDERCATS)
This series had managed to easily maintain their pretty unique and weird sci-fi nature of the predecessor and at the same time did not really come off as overly comedic like the original show. The new series had a beautiful Studio 4C animation.
5. WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN (BETTER THAN X-MEN: TAS)
In the year, 2009, the X-Men had been brought back to the animation field with Wolverine and the X-Men. In the show, the X-Men had disbanded after one explosion at the Xavier Institute, and then, Wolverine was forced to get the team back together for avoiding a bad and horrible future where Sentinels conquer humanity. This hook had given the season a lot to work towards, and it had set the show apart from most series at the time.
6. 2003 TMNT (BETTER THAN: ’80s TMNT)
The ’80s show had relied heavily on comedy, making the Turtles and the villain, Shredder just one-liner machines, the show in 2003 tried to hew way closer to the comics. Almost everything from the storylines and animation was super dark and gritty. But they had managed to maintain the themes of family and brotherhood.
7. FANTASTIC FOUR: WORLD’S GREATEST HEROES (BETTER THAN ’90S FANTASTIC FOUR )
The World’s Greatest Heroes is super fantastic, and it had drawn on the lore of many eras of Fantastic Four cartoons without actually having adaptations of stories like the ‘67 or ’94 cartoons. It had boasted a few of the slickest animations due to the French studio, MoonScoop.
8. AVENGERS: EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES (BETTER THAN AVENGERS: UNITED THEY STAND)
The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had provided all the Avengers fans with some quality superhero cartoon that they had been waiting for. Although initially putting all the people off due to the weird art style, it had soon gone on to win their hearts over through the complex adaptation and characterization of the Avengers storylines.
