Four DC comics brought to life for television took over the San Diego Convention Center's 6,500 seat Hall H at Comic-Con Saturday night.  "Arrow" star, Stephen Amell, hosted the extravaganza called "Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment." He introduced actors Ben McKenzie, Grant Gustin and Matt Ryan before the world premiere of Fox's "Gotham", a screening of The CW's first episode of "The Flash" and footage from the upcoming third season of CW's "Arrow." At the end of the night they played the pilot for NBC's "Constantine" for fans who sat through the three hour event. "Gotham" premieres on FOX Sept. 22, "The Flash" debuts Oct. 7 on The CW, "Arrow" returns to The CW Oct. 8 and "Constantine" comes to NBC on Oct. 24.




1. 'Batman'- 1966 - 1968-  "Batman" made it fun for Hollywood to play these characters, and it worked as both straight adventure for kids and knowing wink for adults. 

2.  'Adventures of Superman' - 1952-1958 - Best known for that booming voiceover intro with all the expected trappings: "faster than a speeding bullet," "mild mannered reporter Clark Kent," "truth, justice and the American way."

3. 'The Incredible Hulk'- 1978 to 1982- The show was a surprise to audiences expecting more "Batman" camp from a comic book character. Instead, the show aimed to impress adults as well as kids. 

4. 'Smallville' - 2001- A young Clark Kent struggles to find his place in the world as he learns to harness his alien powers for good and deals with the typical troubles of teenage life in Smallville.

5. 'Wonder Woman' - 1975-1979 - The adventures of the greatest of the female superheroes. 

6. 'The Greatest American Hero'-  1981 to 1983- Leaving aside the all-time classic opening song, "The Greatest American Hero" was carried by the goofy, loose-limbed charm of William Katt, playing an ordinary teacher who gets an alien super-suit, but loses the instruction manual. 

 7. 'The Flash'- 1990- Underrated leading man John Wesley Shipp also helped make Barry Allen and the Flash cool again (even if his speed effect still looked funny at times).  

8. 'The Tick'- 2001 - 2002- Patrick Warburton gussied up in a big, blue plastic suit, complete with antennae.

 9. 'Heroes' - 2006-2010- Tim Kring's story of ordinary people discovering their powers had a complex mythology, a slew of likable characters, a stable of smart and clever writers

10. 'Arrow'- 2012- Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
