    I liked the second Tim Burton Batman but that was no Catwoman! Some other questionable casting (not Michael Keaton though, he did pretty well). Waaaaaaay better than Clooney and Kilmer and I'm a huge Kilmer fan. He just wasn't Batman by any means.

    I wasn't sure how I felt about Cillian Murphy at first playing The Me but I've come to the decision that he is actually quite good in the role, but the script for the character was lacking.

    Carnage was pretty sweet. Venom was better in my opinion. Here's my issue with Carnage though....(which is not to say you can't love ol' Cletus)

    He suffered from the same issue as Doomsday with that atrocious in hindsight Death and Return of Superman. He was out of the league of the Hero he was matched with. Don't get me wrong, I loved everything about Maximum Carnage with the exception of the crappy video game but it's near impossible to make a logical story (in my mind) after something like that. Spidey needed like 300 assists to get the victory and a cast of supporting heroes that pretty much exhausted the Marvel library. Now, any time I saw Carnage after I had to think to myself.....how come he isn't as bad*** as he used to be? Where's Captain America swooping in at the last second to bail out Spidey? What the crap. Same thing with Doomsday.

    Story arc: Here comes Doomsday > Kills Superman easily > For some reason there are like 37 Superman variants now, with admittedly more compelling personalities than the original Superman > Real Superman is alive again somehow > Superman is now waaaay stronger for some reason > Beats Doomsday

    Basically I'm saying, for me, the buildup for those two things ruined the characters forever after.

    EDIT: As villains I really felt like both had amazing potential but it's tough to be super OP right at the get go then decline. On the other hand, as an actual character, Cletus Kasady was pretty well fleshed out and compelling.

    I think we should have a superhero that is really weak, but manages to slow down the plans of the villian, after that they both fight at the end and the villian wins, killing the superhero, but loses everything he had and gets arrested.

    I liked scarecrow, Cillian Murphy is a good actor but I agree that the character was lacking in the movie, he could've been so much cooler.

    The comic book iterations can be drastically different too. I've seen him used as just a thug with a weird chemical weapon all the way up to a very intense mastermind of the macabre.

    Conceptually speaking, I've always felt like he was the closet thing to an evil counterpoint that Batman had

    One of my first acquisitions when I got a smartphone was a comic reader, a PDF reader and the first 500 issues of MAD. If I could put marginals in every post on this forum I would.

    That's a lot of MAD lol. This takes me back to the days of running home after school to get the mail before my mom could remove my copy of MAD. She was a school teacher and she knew I would take it to school. Kids today got it pretty easy, you do.t even have to go ti a comic shop anymore. I would love to have all my Groo back. I found a couple still in the protective plastic bags. Not worth much but to me they are priceless.
