"Remember when Smallville was TV’s lone superhero show? (And hell, it didn’t even let Clark Kent have flights or tights.)," says Matt Webb Mitovich. "Now, seven years after that Superman origin story wrapped its run, TV is home to nearly 20 comic book-based series about specially abled heroes, with another batch in the pipeline. Could it be that Luke Cage and Iron Fist, which both got powered down this month, are the first casualties of simply too much super going on?" He points out that The CW has had a combined 22 seasons of superhero shows, while Gotham's ratings on Fox haven't been super. Add to that the recent launch of DC Universe and its superhero shows and it shouldn't be surprising to see superhero fatigue kicking in. Mitovich notes that in the "escalation of omnipresence comes that fact that it’s harder than ever for a hero to seem super, to stand out in the crowd."
