Forget the legends. An old-fashioned arrow to the heart is all you need to slay a vampire -- especially if said vampire sports perfect hair and a sculpted teenage body.

Arrow, the DC Comics adaptation Time Warner introduced in October, now ranks as the CW network's top rated show, beating the Twilight-inspired The Vampire Diaries. More than 3 million viewers on average tune in weekly to see Stephen Amell's avenging archer, Nielsen reports, versus 2.8 million for the bloodsuckers.

Surprised? You shouldn't be, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following video. AMC Networks' top-rated drama The Walking Dead is inspired by a comic book of the same name, and Walt Disney is preparing to launch Iron Man 3 in the U.S  on May 3. All signs suggest that the film will be one of the summer season's biggest.
