Re: What's your view of the definitive Batman costume?
As to whether the oval or the black bat look is preferred, I remember there was a poll on the Yesterday, Today and Beyond Batman site that actually gave a statistical percentage. It was something like 34% of those polled preferred the oval, 38% preferred the black bat and 28% didn't care either way or liked both! I prefer the oval for a more experienced Batman and the black bat for a younger, more novice Batman. In the end it is of course subjective. DC seems to push only the oval symbol when marketing is concerned these days.
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.
