The Shadow had the best costume. Somehow Alec Baldwin with a fake nose and hankerchief around his mouth looks ****ing badass.
Intrestingly (or not), none of the above films are based on comicbooks. The Phantom and Dick Tracy are comic strips from newspapers, Rocketeer was a graphic novel, and The Shadow was a radio show.
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.
