There are a lot of great series in this mix, especially in that group coming this summer. Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has been great and it will be great to catch up with the series. I know that the much loved Spectacular Spider-Man is already available. I’ve also never seen all of X-Men Evolution, which I’d like to watch at some point, and of course I’d like to rewatch the 90’s X-Men series.
I also know that there are many of the DC Universe animated features available on Netflix Watch Instant, and with any luck, maybe Warner Brothers will bring the 90’s Batman and Superman animated series to Netflix [please!]. Netflix has been really stepping up the shows available on Watch Instant, and this batch of shows makes me very happy.
Are there any comic shows that you’re still waiting to see show on Netflix Watch Instant?
