But still completely overshadowed. You'd be amazed by how many people have never even heard of "Imaginarium", and think Dark Knight was his last film.

Never watched Batman Beyond, so no idea about that.
And I'm yanking your chain. Re-read my first response- I said "I can't argue with this". That means I agree with you. You're defending your position anyway?
BTW, those two characters? Wasn't kidding. Batgirl's not paralyzed anymore, and Robin II is back from the dead. Both are part of DC rebooting their entire universe to simplify continuity and royally mucking it up again. That's comics for you.

And yeah, I remember that Batman Beyond movie. That one also had someone getting killed too.
And I'll agree with Jim Carry. While the movies did loose a little from the Tim Burton flicks, it also felt, I don't know, more campy. Which hey, is fine with me.
Those movies also had a pretty darn great Alfred in them.

Batman Beyond Spoilers: (combination of info from episodes, the movie Return of the Joker and the comic series)
- Tim Drake kills the Joker but went insane due to that
- Tim Drake then became the Joker -litteraly- because of LOLGENETICS
- Grayson is an amputee
- Barbara is commisioner
- Jason never existed/died and became Red Hood/died. Nothing known so far.
- Calender Man was killed (comics)
- Mad Hatter went into catatonic state after his last fight with Bruce (comics)
- Hush is a clone of Grayson (comics)
- Bane's body is ruined by his use of Venom, though he's still alive
- Ra's Al Ghul took over Talia's body (and oddly enough tried to seduce Bruce to steal his body, which could have lead to weird situations with his daughter)
- Freeze got ruined after his introduction episode, was killed at one point, but his head survived and is given a new body. He dies in an exploding factory after teaming up with Batman, giving a very nice ending to the "villain". See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GD6q4C_2hPc
- Harley became a grandma, her twin grandchildren are recurring villains though (the DeeDee's)
- Most other villains are dead, others are retired. Some managed to reform.
Thing is, the recent line of comics tried to fit in the Beyond story into the existing DC timeline, which causes a lot of inconsistencies, mostly with Jason and Damian.

My 6 yr old kept asking when the movie will end... and he loves super hero movies and cartoons... so this is really how good it was.
There were three or four scenes that were funny and they all involved the HULK!!
Rest was just OK and nothing more.
I don't think the DARK KNIGHT is going to be beaten any time soon .. Even with Spider Man 4

To be honest, there weren't many DC titles that I read, and pretty much all of them got canceled in the reboot. I only read the first couple of issues of the New 52 titles before giving up completely. Some of the were good, but trying to keep track of what happened to who and when when half of it suddenly never happened after all... not worth the effort, since they'll probably be rebooting again in a couple of years.
I still can't believe they axed the First Wave titles for this crap. We finally get a good Doc Savage comic again, and the publishers have to drop it mid-plot for something happening in a bunch of unrelated titles.

I saw a poster for the new Spider-Man yesterday. His head now looks like a red basketball, IMO.
