I grew up watching repeats of the Batman TV show, decades old by that point. With one of the catchiest theme tunes ever recorded and a tone so over-the-top it was out of the trenches and halfway across no man’s land, it was a kid’s ideal show. Going online for the first time in the ’90s I learned the Batman fandom hated it, railing against its camp sensibility in favor of Frank Miller’s grim Dark Knight. But several years later its wholesome do-goodness was embraced by fans so they had a stick to beat Miller’s later, overly cynical comics with—a valuable lesson in how fickle fandom is.
