Who doesn’t like superheroes! especially when they display heroic patriotism, pull off their signature outfits out of nowhere, fight all odds in protecting people around them, they never fail to meet the expectations of viewers.

The superhero genre seems to spread its wings for both films and television equally. The following are a few live-action superhero series streaming on OTT. I'm your host Nikhil, this is List hai toh hit hai theme special, stay with me.
