Taking a distinct take at the superhero genre, Amazon Prime Video's black comedy The Boys Season 2 has been creating much noise lately. We think watching a couple of superheroes kicking some ass to save the world always makes for a wholesome dollop of entertainment. Therefore, this week for Binge Worthy we have put together for you a selection of lesser-known superhero titles with twists in the heart of their stories that you can stream next.Agent Carter

What works: While we all have seen Captain America doing wonders in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, how many of us really know about the incredible things his love interest Peggy Carter did?
