Live-action comic book adaptations are all the rage on television these days.

However, for every character that made the jump brilliantly (such as Gotham's Penguin), there are others that just failed miserably; a few of which (I'm looking at you, Count Vertigo!) probably should never have left the comfort of their comic book pages in the first place.

Let's take a look at a few comic book characters from Arrow, The Flash, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Walking Dead and others that were ruined by how they've been portrayed on the small screen.
