> > > What you call respect is akin to taking Adam West's Batman, Burton's Batman and Batman Returns and Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever and Batman Robin as canon for Nolan's new Batman series. There is a reason Nolan didn't do it.

The 89 and 92 films were based off of the Post Crisis era of stories. "Batman Forever" was based off the 70's Batman while "Batman & Robin" was based off the 60's version. Just as the newer films are based off the stories from 1939, 1940, 1986, 1987, 1996 and 1997.

The only Batman stories that were ever really out of continuity was the bulk of the 70's, including Engelhart's run, "Year Two", "Full Circle", "Bride Of The Demon" and "Son Of The Demon". Once O'Neil left, all subsequent writers and editors began to acknowledge the past again.
> No, because he chose to take some wacky elements and put on top of them even more ludicrously nutty material.
> Interesting take, although if I am not wrong, it wasn't until Morrison that much of Batman's discarded history came back into continuity.

Ah, here we go, finally! That's just it; you are wrong.
