Poll: Favorite TV Shows VOTING: Arrow vs. Young Justice (404 votes)

Arrow 26%
Young Justice 52%
I love both of them 20%
I'm not a fan of either show 1%
It brings me great shame to admit I haven't watched both and won't be able to before Friday 0%

*Want to vote but you don't have an account? Well, what are you waiting for?! Signing up is beyond simple. CLICK HERE to register and then you'll be able to vote in all of our polls and join the countless discussions. Go on, make an account!*

"Comic Vine, you're asking me to compare a live-action show and an animated show. What is this madness?!" Sure, these two options have big differences, but at the end of the day, both aim to immerse you in the DC universe and give you an emotional connection to its characters. They may be different viewing experiences, but we want to know which one you prefer!

Have you fallen in love with the live-action take on Green Arrow's adventures or do you think Young Justice's animated tales are full of awesomeness? Both have aired 2 seasons (sadly, only Arrow will be returning for more) and both have featured Deathstroke, our latest Character of the Month, but we're wondering if you have a preference between these two comic book shows. Maybe you love them equally? Or perhaps you're not a fan of either? No matter what your opinion may be, we want to hear from you. So, cast your vote and voice your opinion!

There's no need to rush to a conclusion just yet, Viners. The poll is staying open until Friday morning (ET), so that should give you more than enough time to reflect on these two shows. What is it about one of these programs that potentially makes it more engrossing than the other? Is it the way certain characters are developed? Maybe a specific plot really won you over? Do you adore the action in one of these shows? Think it through and don't forget to vote!

If you want to go the extra mile, leap into the comments and share your thoughts on the match. If the post is excellent enough, there's a chance we'll highlight it in Friday's article. However, if the post is longer than a few paragraphs, odds are we won't highlight it. Please, try and keep it fairly concise if you want it to be considered for the updated article!

Check the homepage this Friday to see which TV show wins and why. In the meantime, feel free to make future match-up suggestions in the comments below or tell us via Twitter.

Arrow. Amazing stunt work and choreography for a TV show, the battle between Cyrus Gold and Arrow is one of the best I've seen, it genuinely looked like a metahuman was fighting. Also, people bash the acting and while there is some merit to that in certain characters, there are one or two really good performances with excellent character development. Moira & Slade are examples of this. Moira being the best in my opinion, her character was awesome and there were some really interesting layers to her. I also like the Nolanesque vibe of it, it forays too deep into cheesiness every now and then, but on the whole, manages to keeps it fairly muted for a CW show.

So yeah, I like Arrow more, though YJ was cool.

Young Justice was consistently amazing. Arrow varies immensely in quality.

Young Justice is generally faithful to source material, finding elegant ways to blend things that are normally skipped over/retconned in comics (such as Jay Garrick). Arrow generally screws the source material for whatever plot they feel like doing that week (Firefly, the Count).

Young Justice gave us consistently developing main characters, as well as a recurring cast who managed to remain interesting even in spite of their limited appearances. Arrow's characters can be quite frustrating at times.

And, the really killer, Young Justice gave us a better version of Green Arrow, Black Canary, and Roy Harper than Arrow EVER has.

Arrow is enjoyable. Young Justice was amazing.

I love both shows. I'm still upset we don't have a season 3 of Young Justice, but I can't choose between these two. You get the best story-telling and entertainment from both live-action and animated with these two great shows.

I can't stand Arrow, so I voted for Young Justice. They're both cheesy, but Arrow is unbearable. I hope the DC Cinematic Universe never crosses over with it. And now with the "Lightning abs" humor in Flash, I'm worried it will be just as bad. Young Justice just needed to get rid of the catch phrases. The payoff for "Hello Megan," wasn't worth it, and "Neptune's Beard" is even worse. Besides that, I thought the first season was excellent. The second season was a really generic alien abduction storyline, and the ending was extremely disappointing. Wally was probably my favorite character on the show, and then they threw him in at the last minute to kill him, so it had little weight. They also dragged out that 5 year time skip Justice League dilemma way too much, and once again, didn't pay off.

Young Justice all the way! Not only did it have fleshed out characters it had engaging storylines and also good animation. I feel like I can actually care about the characters and imo was up there woth Justice League in making good plots and developing stroylines. My only gripe is....Its gone T.T

ARROW. The suspense, the drama, the characters,the character development, the acting, the storyline, the cameos, the twists, the easter eggs, Stephen Amell's swag, Manu Bennet's voice… I love everything about it. Young Justice… I only watched the first three or four episodes. It was pretty good for a cartoon I'll grant you. The action and story lines and the characters and character development was nice. But I couldn't stand any more of the "Hhhheeellllllllllooo! Megan!".

Young Justice without a doubt!

The best DC show I've seen since JL Unlimited.

It'll be great if someone at DC would make a Young Justice season 3 comic book, just like they did with Smallville. It deserves it! I mean, that show had great character design, great character development, it was full of B-listers and deep relationship between them.

And I need to know what happens after season 2's insane cliffhanger!

Young Justice. Arrow shouldn't even be put in the same sentence along with YJ. Arrow lacks everything you need for a TV Show to be good - good plot,good actors,good budget and good character development. It's just a bad show in a tv programme filled with bad shows.

Young Justice as a spiritual sibling to Justice League/Unlimitied and a quintessential Greg Weisman piece it showed just how well he and his crew understood how to tell serial/episodic stories with well drawn characters. Expanding its universe in the second season in ways most shows teen oreinted, live action, animated or otherwise just don't go for.

With Miss Martian perhaps becoming one of the most terryfing characters on the series, Episode 21 "Image" becomes so much more impactful with the context of season 2 and that's after it already brings up questions of identity and authenticity. Also shout outs to "Failsafe" an episode that tells you from the beginning what it is and still manages to make you invest in it.

Arrow expanded mightly in season 2 and came together by the end of season 1 and will likely surpass this show but for now it's Young Justice.

Arrow's first season was , for most part , nothing but a cheap imitation of Batman Begins ( use of flash-backs - a guy who after losing his wife become a villain and have a personnel connection to the hero and also plan to destroy his city - absence of magic and superpowers etc ) with an unhealthy dose of the CW 's melodrama , it did have some good episodes and the shown definitely become better in the second season . Young justice on the other hand had better planed story arcs , plenty of character development and a better use of the DC universe mythology

what a hilarious match up. Young Justice is debatably better than all other comic book shows/films. Arrow is a poorly acted, directed, and plotted mess. Its like they dont even try with live action comic book shows. There is not a single thing that Arrow has over Young Justice. It is a crying shame that Young Justice is cancelled while shows like Arrow get to go on. It is poorly made and only continues to get good ratings because it is a comic book show.

I usually choose sides but I choose I love both of them. Both shows took relatively unknown characters like Blue beetle (for young justice) and Felicity (for Arrow) and make them the true heart of the show.

Arrow is a terrible show because they took away everything that made Green Arrow kinda quirky and turned him into a cheap Batman ripoff.

Young Justice. Great stories, excellent characters and plot twists like Game of Thrones. And the versions of Green Arrow, Black Canary, Count Vertigo (who came my new fav villain after watching the show!) and Speedy are better than the cringe worthy Arrow ones. Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance are actual human beings as opposed to blank fashion models.
