DC Universe, a streaming service that launched last year for fans of DC — home of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and more — has been off to a hot start with its first three original shows.

Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider the most in-demand streaming shows of that week, and all three DC Universe shows have consistently appeared on the list. They have been well-liked by critics, too. “Doom Patrol” has a 94% Rotten Tomatoes critic score.

“Titans,” about a Robin that has distanced himself from Batman and teams up with a group of vigilantes, premiered last year. “Young Justice: Outsiders” is the third season of “Young Justice,” an animated series that aired on Cartoon Network in 2010. And “Doom Patrol” is its latest original, about a team of superpowered outsiders who come out of hiding when their leader disappears.

DC Universe told Business Insider last month that the biggest uptick in free-trial sign-ups have corresponded with the premiere of original shows.
