Dark Knight vs. Iron Man

If you ask Robert Downey, Jr, who seems to have an opinion on the matter:
He admits that DC Comics’ Dark Knight made him feel “dumb” and in need of a college education, likening the movie to a Ferrari engine.  Downey also alluded that there was too much going on in the plot.
His parting shot was (and I quote): “You know what? F**k DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”

Ironman Comic from the movie signed by Robert Downey, Jr.

Robert Downey, Jr. is Tony Stark in Marvel Comics' Iron Man

Heath Ledger portrays the Joker in DC Comics' Dark Knight

 
Have you an opinion on which is the better bit of entertainment?
Or do you think they’re both great movies, just different?
Go with the numbers (Dark Knight took approx. 155 mil its first weekend, and is the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time with $442 million in sales as it topped the movie chart for a fourth straight weekend, Iron Man raked in about 107 mil opening weekend…) or cast your vote:
Either of the above are available for purchase.

Where’s Batwoman?

DC Comics' Batwoman is out and she can be yours from NW Limited...History in Vogue

Diversity is not a new concept.
It is reflected in the popular arts, as well as much of what we now consider historic events:
Also known as DC Comics’ Batwoman, Kathy Kane has been around since 1956. 
Interestingly enough, her arrival was meant to help dispel rumors of homosexuality in their Batman character.  By bringing a female love interest into the storyline, it was hoped that her presence would end all speculation of Batman’s gender preference.  
Kathy/Batwoman continued to make appearances up until September of 1979, when she was killed by the Bronze Tiger.
Fast forward to 2006: Kathy Kane returns, as a lipstick lesbian!  Ironic?
As we know, art imitates life, and vice versa.  
History is made in the expression of a changing society.

DC Comics' Batwoman framed matted with USPS DC Comics postage stamps and postmark. Great gift!
