You know what I would love in the ultimate collection? This as a goodie:

That may sound unduly negative, but it isn't meant to be. I am saying that Batman, Superman et al will continue to feature in great stories written by passionate people, regardless of the current whim of the 'general audience'.
I wouldn't say it's meaningless when I too have been a fan of Batman for a long, long time(harkens back to Batman '89 before I even touched a Batman comic), but the fact that Nolan's trilogy hit home to even the GA when the name of Batman had put a bad taste since Batman & Robin, I find it incredible that films raised up Batman's popularity claim outside of the CB community.
