Exactly! This is true considering that the animated series had cool villains like LUMINOUS and the Superman comics have some pretty terrible villains like MASTER JAILOR, BLOODSPORT and THE PRANKSTER.

The reason why some fans come down on Batman 89 so hard since the Nolan films have been released is 2 fold: the Nolan films are newer and fans of the actual books don't read the 70's and 80's source material that the 89 film was based upon to understand how much more pure the 89 film is compared to the modern crime-drama trilogy that Nolan created.
