: Adam West's Batman was a bit before my time,
: Frank Miller sucks, and with the sole

: Don't get me wrong, if you like the old
: school style that's cool. I liked Adam West
: as Batman when I was a kid too. That said,
: IMHO, the Batman franchise needed The Dark
: Knight Returns the way the Marvel Concept
: needs The Trials of Shazam. Anyway no one
: should be complaining, DC's putting out
: 'monster society' for the fans of Cap from
: yesteryear. I seems to me this is win-win!
