Default Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?

The blue is debatable. Batman was introduced wearing black. Black costumes were, for the longest time, highlighted in blue, as the base color of comic book ink is black. Over time, with deadlines & God knows what else, inkers filled in less & less black, while colorists filled in more & more blue. Somehow this led to people coming onto the book with the impression that his garb was SUPPOSED to be blue, & rendering him accordingly.

May he finally find the peace that eluded him in life.
There is only ONE Spider-Man. His name is Peter Parker. He's an adult, and he's straight!
