Re: Am I the only one who feels like B'89 is vastly overrated?
I'm all for Burton's Batman killing people. He's the most unstable version of the character, he treads a very thin line between being a crime-fighter and a vengeance-driven lunatic. No-one wants to see him killing bad guys all over the place, but occasionally going too far just illustrates the fact that he is a very morally dubious character.
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.
