5 Heroes/Teams I Want to See Turned into Shows

DC/Warner Bros. my be having a bit weak on the big screen, but they seem to have the small screen locked down.

With the popular Arrow, the soon to premiere Flash and Gotham that premiered tonight you'd think that DC would have enough on their hands...
Nope. They recently announced a Teen Titans show with Nightwing as the lead, and a Supergirl show...

I'm not a math major but I'm pretty sure that's 5 shows.

So here are 5 (live action) shows based on DC Heroes that I'd like to see...
in no particular order...

5) Aquaman - Aquaman gets no respect. He's one of my favorites who's severely underrated. He controls 70% of Earth. Let's show the (Aqua)Man some respect.
If you like him or not, there's no denying that the setting alone will be set up some adventures and stories that cannot be told in any other series, with any other hero.
The CW can call it something like... "ATLANTIS" or "AQUA"
that ladies and gentlemen is another reason why I won't be allowed to name my kid.

4) Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) and Booster Gold - Need I say more? Yes. I have to. I need substance for this blog.
Their relationship is a fun one and will lend for some awesome stories and moments. It's like a much better buddy cop show. MUCH BETTER.

3) Static - Static is probably best known for his Saturday morning cartoon. As bright as the show was the comics had a MUCH darker tone which would work perfectly on TV. Not just that but Static being a Teenager will also mean different problems than Oliver Queen or Barry Allen.

2) Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) - For a lot of the same reasons as Static. Teenage Hero has a different set of problems than their Adult counterparts. But Jaime is different than Static... he has an Alien Scarab attached to his back which gives him his powers. Jaime has very little control of it at the start and slowly gains more control.
Trying to live a normal life at the same time = great television.

1) Green Lantern Corps. - Not Just Hal Jordan or Jon Stewart,,, all of them. Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Simon Baz, and even Alan Scott.
This one is probably going to be the hardest to pull off... but this is my list and I'm not taking the logistics into consideration,
Also, it may seem biased since I'm a HUGE Green Lantern fan... that's because it is...
I'm biased. I'm totally biased but GLC would make a great show.
Think of all the best/popular cop shows... now put them in space... yeah. Space Cops.
Call it "OA" and throw it on the CW.
Just keep Martin Campbell away from this. Far. Far away.

Are there any heroes you'd like to see on the Small Screen?

Let me know!
