20 Greatest Ever Superhero TV Themes

12. Jessica Jones

On the other side of things, Marvel’s recent gritty Netflix series Jessica Jones rewrote the rulebook on superhero TV – and so had an unusual theme. There’s a jazzy tone to this one which reflects the neo-noir stylings of the show. A very underrated theme, this one.


11. Daredevil

The Daredevil theme tune is brilliant because it perfectly represents the show that follows it. There’s a tense pounding beat that is often found in superhero themes, as well as a more subdued melody that sounds like the theme of a legal drama.


10. Spectacular Spider-Man

If you’re not familiar with this acclaimed Spidey series from 2007, go and watch it now. Set in Peter’s high school years, it is a fantastic concoction of the best of the character’s mythos. The theme tune is also pretty – dare we say it? – spectacular too.

  1. Well TMNT and the 90s Batman were my shows as a child and those themes have always stuck with me. I have to say I far prefer the Justice League Unlimited theme those Justice league was rather heroic. I had totally forgot about spectacular spiderman that was such a great theme. This really had been a trip down memory lane for me. It’s a great list and I’m in two minds for 66 batman as number one. It makes sense it’s iconic the world over but other themes mean more and stir more emotion in me. I shan’t argue it’s place for legacy alone but it has me thinking.

    1. Hey Cameron, thanks for reading. I had completely forgotten about the Justice League Unlimited theme – thanks for reminding me of that! Yeah, I put 60s Batman top because, as you say, it is so iconic. Other ones are more personal to me on a nostalgic level.

      1. My pleasure was a great read! I’m still trying to think of shows I’d add but you’ve covered all the greats. I really need to find my copies of earth’s mightiest heroes such a great series and an awesome theme. Why they edited it in the second season is a mystery to me. A good theme sets you up for the adventure, ruing an already great them with a bad edit job and voice over takes you out of the happy moment.
