6 Web Series For Your Inner Superhero

6 Web Series For Your Inner Superhero

These are web series that show us that there are very few respectable professions that don’t somehow involve you wearing your underoos on the outside. Some of these are comedies, looking at the lighter side of the cape, others are as dark as your last trip to Arkham Asylum’s Day Spa and Grill; all of them involve average people doing extraordinary things with the aide of B-grade special effects.

Some of you web series aficionado’s may be wondering why Take 180′s In2uition didn’t make the list. Well, we are trying our best to avoid repetition and it’s already holding its own as one of our favorite supernatural web series.

    Hmmm… now the ommision of The Ennead is even more glaring… Yes it is has many supernatural elements (but was skipped for supernatural series'), but at it's core it is about regular people coming to terms with gaining superpowers. (Oh, and trying to regain their memory, to know whether their destiny is to save OR destroy the world…)

    I agree with you, The Ennead should have made the list. It didn't because up
    until that point I hadn't had the chance to screen it. Don't worry though,
    it's made this round of reviews so you'll be hearing our thoughts on it

    Thanks for the comment!

    How about the Lost Heroes web series? I hear they're turning their first short into a 4 more webisodes which will equal a 22 minute pilot with more action, fight scenes, and special effects. You can view the original here:

    Hey, guys –
    Of course I have to throw our hat in the ring here too. Pretty much the same plot as some of these with an audience of 36,000 subscribers currently and working on episodes 6 and 7. Here's a sizzle reel in 52 seconds for The Platoon of Power Squadron.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
