Re: Why Does Frank Miller Hate Superman?
And that's my frustration. I doesn't feel like "Miller likes Superman, it's Batman that doesn't." In the way the stories are told, Batman is our only hope, despite there being all these other heroes. These other heroes are to be seen as deluded or even feared.
Yet, we have actual DC canon that says the opposite.
Miller's world is Sin City black and white. He lives in a world of absolutes, absolutes defined by his own personal experiences and then flavored with his whacked-out theories and conspiracies.
I think Year One is (quite possibly) the best Batman story out there (though, as soon as I say that, I think of The Killing Joke) . . . I just wish he'd stay the hell away from Superman and the rest of the DC pantheon. He has nothing but contempt for them and I hate the way he mishandles them.
