My fault, I should have said Nolanites.

I think its because most people, regardless of their favorite hero, see TDK has the best superhero film, or they acknowledge it is the most successful, so they compare every superhero film to it. It is in a class of its own, not necessarily because of its quality, but because of its approach. Like I said, Nolan's batman films are not about simply having fun. The others are. I personally prefer TDK, but I find heavy dialogue films "fun", call me crazy, but neither approach is right or wrong.
Actually Spider-Man(2002) is when talking about numbers of tickets sold world wide. It adjusts above TDK and even Superman(1978). No other superhero film has ever been so successful.
