    If You're Tired Of The Usual Superheroes, Then These 17 Anti-Hero Shows And Movies Are Deffo For You

    If you like The Boys, I gurantee you'll love Misfits.

    There's more superhero media out there than ever with Marvel and DC dominating the market, but sometimes people get tired of the same old heroics.

    If you're looking for something a bit less self-righteous, or a show that outright makes fun of heroism, I recommend these 17 anti-hero shows and movies:

    1. The Boys and The Boys Presents: Diabolical
