I saw Powers, Sony has the first episode for free on YouTube.

I thought it was good but I'm not sure about if I would watch other episodes because you need an American PS Plus account and I don't have PS Plus.

PS Plus might only be needed to watch it free.

That would be cool but than the list will be a lot bigger because some go as far back as the 40s and 50s.

Edit* I added past series based on DC and Marvel comics.

Ah Human Target, how I miss thee. That second season ruined it - Mrs Poochi.

There was a Shazam series???

I saw the Blade series, it was pretty decent although the lead actor wasn't great.

iZombie is surprisingly good. I wasn't even interested in it when it was first announced.

Also The Flash episode 1.15 is really crazy.

Supergirl has been picked up to Series.

iZombie, Daredevil, and Powers got a Season 2.

I added #4Hero and Starman because both are in development at Machinima.

#4Hero is an updated version of Dial H 4 Hero.

Edit* added Amped, Untitled SHIELD spin-off, Marvel Mystery Project, and Sex Criminals.
