Super hero theme songs

What are some songs that come to mind for your favorite DC heroes or even villains? Just thought this could be an interesting topic.


Doom Patrol’s theme song. It’s the only show I actually watch the full intro so I can hear the theme song!


I will start Lex Luthor - master of puppets by Metallica, superman - rise above this by Seether

@Duke I love the doom patrol opening the cinematography , ambience and music are just amazing. I dig it


wkow I love this … it has that retro feel. the intro reminds me of those gamer cds that you used to get for free in the PC magazines in the late eighties and nineties.


I love the theme song to The New Adventures of Superman (available in the TV section =) ).

“Super, super, Suuupermaaan!” Good ol’ vintage animation!


Anybody else notice that the Titans theme song starts out just like the Superfriends?


Nightwing with Nine Inch Nails “The Lines Begin to Blur”

The Joker with Insane Clown Posse "Assassin "

Catwoman with Peter Murphy “Strange kind of Love”


Superman: Save Me by Remy Zero
Deadman: Dead Man’s Party by Ooingo Boingo
Enchantress: Black Magic Woman by Carlos Santana
Zatanna: I Put A Spell On You by Screamin Jay Hawkins
Flash: Flash Gordon theme by Queen
Reverse Flash: Runnin’ With The Devil by Van Halen

  • Supergirl: “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten

  • Alex Danvers: “One Call Away” by Charlie Puth

  • Birds of Prey: “Revolution” by Aimee Allen

  • Suicide Squad: “Heathens” by Twenty One Pilots

  • Felicity Smoak: “B****” by Meredith Brooks (I love Felicity, so this song choice isn’t in any way meant as an insult)

  • Superman: “Superman (It’s Not Easy”) by Five for Fighting

  • Batman: “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park

Not to be “that guy”, but Black Magic Woman isn’t “by” Carlos Santana/Santana; it was written and performed originally by the Peter Green-fronted Fleetwood Mac during their “Blues” period in the 60s.
