20 Greatest Ever Superhero TV Themes

9. Smallville

Remy Zero’s ‘Save Me’ is the perfect theme song for Smallville. As well as harking to Clark Kent’s eventual destiny as a superhero, its angsty alt-rock tones fit the teen drama of the series. By the time you’ve heard it 200+ times, it’ll be ingrained in your head forever.


8. Justice League

If you were a superhero-loving kid in 2001, this was your introduction to the Justice League – and what an intro it was! This grand, heroic theme perfectly encapsulates the legendary quality of this superteam of heroes. Can the upcoming moves live up to this amazing cartoon?


7. Batman: The Animated Series

This one is slightly cheating, as BTAS shares a theme with the Tim Burton Batman movies, but this show is the definitive superhero TV series for many so we couldn’t leave it off. The animation that accompanies the theme is also quintessential Batman.

  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.
