And because DC has like five damn Batman titles, and they act like the universe will implode if he isn't mentioned or making an appearance everywhere.

Exactly...And I'm pretty sure there are issue that Superman has appeared and has yet to be tagged.

Well outside of DC comcis is more common to see Batman parodies, Batman copies, Batman based character and Batman related jokes that Superman ones, so isnt shocking he can surpass Superman.

@PaperDemon: nobody could be batman. noone could master over 100 martial arts in one lifetime.even if they did try to be batman they would probably die after a random thug shoots them. or get caught by the cops. most of batman gadgets wouldnt work in real life like they do in the comics.

If batman made 100 duplicates of himself and told them to master 100 martial arts and join together as one at midnight at the Rosetta stone,then it would seem batman can master over 100 martial arts.

I'd say the people in marketing and sales are the real whores but thanks for the laugh. :) Trolls be d*****.

Batman: "Oh yeah, you like all those unnecessary titles, don't you? That's right, lean over that counter and gently lay your money down. I'll do whatever you want-Fight radioactive clones, angrily egg on guys who are branding my symbol on people, you name it."

batman is allow to have various titles because they offer something new in each title.. Batman and Robin is different from batman incorporated.They offer something new to the reader.

#38 Posted by Queso6p4 (1430 posts) - - Show Bio

@moywar700: Understood, but there's not enough difference to warrant him having so many titles, in my opinion. I'd say keep it focused to three, maybe four titles and leave it at that. I can see the main title, Batman & Robin, and Batman Incorporated, as doing what you say but The Dark Knight should just be scrapped. Only very recently has it seemed to actually have a direction.
