Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?
Spider-Man was faithful.
Iron Man was faithful.
The Fantastic Four were faithful.
Superman was faithful to an extent, if you get past the colours used.
Watchmen was faithful.
The Phantom was faithful.
Hellboy was faithful.
There'll be more, too. I think, looking at this chunk of films in question, it's quite plain that Batman is responsible for nothing other than delivering good movies.
HUMAN BEAN JUICE.
