Fair point. There's also Spawn, which, IIRC wasn't successful, but it was certainly an attempt.

I think Blade -- and to an extent Batman -- are different in that they ride the line between superhero and other genres: like Horror or Mystery. They can rely on that to help them establish their tone and style. Singer was really flying blind with X-Men on that front.

They do deserve credit for what they did to pave the way though, so please don't think I'm trying to argue.
