Isn't it bizarre that Warner Bros kicked Burton off the Bat franchise for such things as making the Penguin a hideous freak and scaring children, yet also made sure the Penguin appeared Burton-like in a cartoon marketed at children?
There is no Marvel/DC rivalry. Most of the great comic creators worked for both; Jack Kirby, Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Walt Simonsen, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, John Byrne, Steve Englehart, Mark Waid...even Stan Lee.
