Season 2 of Arrow may have started off slow, but more viewers are taking to the Time Warner (NYSE:TWX.DL) superhero drama, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.

Unlike Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has made modest ratings progress after suffering a drop-off following the series premiere, Arrow lured more than 3 million viewers for episode 2 and another 2.9 million for episode 3. Both figures beat the season 2 premiere.

More important, Tim says, seasons 2 of Arrow has introduced viewers to several new DC Comics characters. At San Diego Comic-Con, series co-creators Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim said to expect as much. Now they're making good on that promise as Agents takes its time expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tim says.
