On The Batman Series

Rare to find an interesting movie review these days (such as this one). With as many reviews that are out there, this is sad to say the least. Nevertheless, it brought me back to the idea of Batman as the Jesus/savior of Gotham in that series. I had never thought of it like that. Indeed, the entire thing seems to circle around the idea of Batman sacrificing himself for the worthless people who don't appreciate him. 

Now, I won't get into the underlying fascism in the movie, but I will say that if it is about a savior who sacrifices himself, it's about the weakest kind. Appropriate, I suppose, for Hollywood. For the man only sacrifices himself in appearance and goes off to some cafe and, presumably, lives happily ever after.

Wonder if the great stories of the past would have a similar impact with such a conman as protagonist? Your thoughts?
