It was Pfeiffer-FAN who said something to the effect of it would have been great to get a proper sequel that built on the first Batman in the Returns thread. Pfeiffer-FAN is right. We didn't get gangsters and a nightmarish villain from the 70's and 80's comic books. We got Tim Burton creations all throughout a film that supposedly starred Batman from the 89 film.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
