15. 'The Flash'

"It's better to have a good heart than fast legs." To be fair, if you're fighting crime, it helps to have both. Grant Gustin's Barry Allen had made a few appearances on the CW's superhero series Arrow, and as any DC Universe fanatic can tell you, Allen suffers a freak accident that leaves him with the ability to literally run circles around mere mortals. One red costume later, Central City has a new do-gooder in town. Like Arrow, this series nails the feel of a vintage comic book without being cheesy or cheap, and the more classic Flash supervillains it introduces (Captain Boomerang, Pied Piper, Reverse Flash), the speedier it climbs up viewer's must-see lists.
