Huh. Well, fair enough, although a lot of those don't count (1940s era,
You mean the era in which the character was made?

Why on earth wouldn't that count?

This is the thing I understand with fans of American comic book superheroes. They have a very clear idea of what is the definitive version of a given character, and it's never the original iteration - more often it's whatever the hell was being published when they were twelve.
Oh, that's absolutely true. We're a terrible lot in that regard.

In fairness, though, I don't believe the general public would much recognize that Bat-Man, either. The use of guns, the murder, the hyphen.

Interesting, because the "gothic" look associated with the Dark Knight graphic novel and the 1989 movie really had NOTHING to do with the original Batman either..it was a pretty straightforward city with a strightforward underworld element. Somehow along the line people thought gothic was Batman.
