Marvel is king of the box office, but this infographic I created shows DC rules live-action television.

The comic book companies Marvel and DC comics have been producing live-action television shows based on their books for decades. DC manages to beat Marvel at every turn. Frankly, I thought the results would be a lot closer.
While shows based on Hulk, Jessica Jones, Mockingbird, Cloak and Dagger and The Punisher are in development, Marvel has to go a long way to catch up to DC's dominance of live-action television.
The graphic shows the number of episodes for each show based on Marvel and DC comic books. While the number of episodes a television show runs is not a complete measure of it's success, shows that work for a large number of people get renewed. Shows that are unpopular do not.
