Re: Batman: Earth One
Dr. Z, I agree. I am of the opinion that too many people who call themselves BAT-fans only read the most popular books and can't be bothered with actual specifics! A lot of newbs don't care that there have been 4 Robins out there (can't count Steph) or that more than one guy has been Batman and whatnot.
That's why it pisses me off when newbs browse and post in the movie threads acting like they know all about a character and that their opinion is the final word.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
