The year is 1981.  My four year-old self had just watched Superman kick Zod’s entire ass and it was glorious.  In 1981, Superman was THE superhero movie to see.  It had action, conflict and even romance.  The Christopher Reeve helmed Superman franchise went strong for nine years.  Of course, by the end, it had lost a bit of it’s luster.  (I still haven’t seen all of A Quest for Peace.  I actually act like that movie and Christopher Reeve’s death never happened, as nature intended.) As the fervor for Superman waned, we were reintroduced to Batman.  And not our parents’ Batman either.  There was a darkness that was missing from the campy Adam West era.
