Re: Where does most of TDK's critisism come from?
What's wrong with Coleman Reese? One of the underlying ideas propelling TDK was him inspiring people. We see the negatives of his influence with the fake batmen and the Joker, we see the positive influence with Harvey Dent. Coleman Reese was another one of his positive influences. A greedy opportunist becomes inspired to not be a greedy opportunist.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
