In Nolan I Trust!


It has been said by many that Tim Burton's Batman is better than Nolan's.

On these occassions, I claim that Tim Burton's has very little in common with what the comics.

I wish to prove that Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy is closer to the comics than Tim Burton's.

This includes villians, characters, and the stories.

since my opponent took no time to define the terms, i will, the only term necessary to define is comic book, in which i will state that a comic book is a monthly bi-monthly or yearly serialization of a still cartoon with multiple panels and has a ongoing story. since my opponent did not create his own definitions he must abide by mine.

Now my opponent may have been correct if the resolution involved graphic novels, for christopher nolans trilogy is very similar to the graphic novels, how ever, we are talking comic books, and the batman comic books are much lighter and much less grim than the graphic novels. As it turns out the tim burton batmans are a lot less dark than christopher nolans, there for they bear more resembelence to the comic books. thi is why my resolution must stand
