Well I was only speaking for myself and in that same spirit, B&R being bad had no effect on me the way all the bad-to-mediocre Marvel adaptions from 1998-early 2008 did. Mainly because I thought ALL the first 4 Batman movies were bad along with the last 2 Superman movies of the 80's. But none of that mattered much to me since they were all adaptions of characters and lore from DC comics which I have never been a fan of or given much of a **** about(especially Batman whom I found to be incredibly boring until Batman Begins came along). But with the early Marvel stuff I at least was familiar with it all even if they weren't the Marvel characters I was a fan of so seeing them get badly represented had more of an effect on me.

You know, it occurs to me that Captain America is basically the superhero equivalent of Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way and all that stuff.
