Oh yeah I went there, but bare with me. I'm an avid comic book fan, love Marvel and DC. Most superheroes I really like for various reasons, but lately I've just been getting Batman-fatigue. In the DC mythos, there are countless superheroes and storylines that deserve attention. Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Steel, Static, Green Arrow, Orion, Plastic Man, etc...all these heroes with so many villains and storylines all worthy of being told. Yet all I hear is "more Batman, more Batman." Batman this, Batman that. Batman video games, Batman movies, Batman tv shows, Batman comics. And the absolute worst part is, because of the recent Nolan movies, now most of the people I talk to now expect EVERY superhero to be "dark and gritty" because that some equals good. It's extremely frustrating since these are the same people who never have picked up a comic or cared about any Batman story before the Nolan movies. They were aware of the character, yes, but they have never really read any comic books about him or any other superhero. But other comic fans are just as annoying to me. Its always "Batman is so much better! He actually uses his brain and can beat anybody!" blah blah blah. UGH.... How much more Batman related stuff is needed??
