Why is Misfits recommended?

Hugh "Hughie" Campbel joins a group of vigilant hero killers after his girlfriend is killed by one of them in front of him. One of his heroes acted recklessly and she got killed, and it all got hidden away by those in power.
Why is The Boys recommended?
Doom Patrol is a group of superpowered outcasts living together under the house of one idealistic modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder. The heroes are Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and Crazy Jane. They have superpowers, but they also got horrible scars, disfigurements, and traumas from it.

It follows the travels and exploits of a lone bounty hunter known as The Mandalorian, a member of the nearly extinct ancient martial order Mandalorian.
But one day a job changes his life drastically.
Is The Mandalorian good?
So far The Mandalorian is the Star Wars story and atmosphere I have been waiting for. I like many of the existing movies, but they are all about grand galaxy-wide consequences. The Mandalorian is a more small scale and on the outskirts and lawless parts of the galaxy. Probably why I liked the Solo: A Star Wars Story so much.
People all over the world are discovering that they have superpowers. They are all trying to deal with how this is change is affecting their lives.
Some of the people with superpowers are. Peter Petrelli, a 30-something nurse who suspects he can fly. Claire Bennet, a 17-year-old cheerleader who is next to immortal. Hiro Nakamura, a 20-something Japanese comic book fan who kind of control time. Niki Sanders, a 30-something Las Vegas showgirl with an evil twin. Matt Parkman, a cop who can read minds. Isaac Mendez, a 20-something junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high.
This is a show of heroes and villains, some with and some without superpowers. A shadowy organization hunting people with superpowers is one of the power players.
