When Byrne came on Superman in 86, there is no doubt that Supes was the undisputed top dog in movies, media, recognition, etc.

But that was a long time ago.

Since the 90s, certainly Batman has been more successful in media and merchandising. So why isn't the "grand" Bendis treatment and hoopla therefore going to Batman, the big kahuna?

Certainly, Batman is somewhat more in Bendis' wheelhouse considering his street level runs w/Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

I know Bendis chose to do Superman, but I wonder if he or DC ever considered him doing the bip hoopla treatment there. And if not, why not?


It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
