    First of all, apologies to Zelf, my reply came off way more defensive and way less funny than I was targeting. I should never post late at night.

No need to apologize. I didn't think anything of it.

    Cyborg in the league is revisionist, but it's a revisionism that's been comic book cannon since 2011, and was first used way back in 1985 on the Superfriends cartoon.

Yes, but Cyborg is so much a part of the Teen Titans that shoehorning him into the Justice League made him look like he's there just to be the token black man. They could have easily picked another character more closely associated with the team. Like nigma said, Vixen would have been a great choice.

    I know that the Dark Knight trilogy are better films than those two versions of Batman, by pretty much every applicable standard of movie reviewing, but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying the other ones. Though I still can't watch Batman Returns, as I can't find any connection to the source material, sometimes you need to tell Tim Burton, "Stop."

I don't care for Batman Returns either, but I don't really care for any Batman movie outside of the Nolan ones. The Burton films haven't aged well and are too campy for me. The Schumacher ones just stink. I can watch the Adam West one just for laughs though.

    That’s another advantage Marvel has by doing it right. Deviations from the source material arose organically thorough the individual films before the team ups started. DC hits us in the face with them all at once.
