Re: "Gotham" the TV Series coming to Fox -- how will effect the new Batman?
Smallville pretty much is a test of what to do when making these types of shows:
1. Have people who actually care about the character
2. Have a set plan and stick with it
3. Have good writers
4. Stop with this rights BS that keeps certain aspects off the show
I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair."

"He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale."
