Well I still think that... even those old myths (and you see a lot of Artists, Writers, Directors using that word to describe the modern film, comic books, superheroes)... The Myths have a lot of basic entertainment value as well as core values communication.

They didn't have TV, so all they had were these poems and myth things, which I think at the time also doubled as scripture, right? But at its basic level you still have an audience and you still have a storyteller.

So you still have to sort of "sell" it... with the action.. the "marquee characters"....Magic armor, magic swords, sexual content..... Crossovers, spin-offs.

It is true that today it's all taken a bit less seriously... But much of the same logic is still apparent.

Primarily that, much in the same way that say "Achilles" can have multiple pieces of work with prominence: Homer wrote him into the "Iliad" where Achilles died, but Statius wrote the "Achilleid" which is essentially Achilles Year One. Like you said, Stan Lee, the original creator of Spider-Man continues to write his own continuity of Spider-Man on his own... And therefore you can have any number of Batman within validity of canon: Nolanverse Batman, Bob Kane Batman, Frank Miller Batman....including BEN AFFLECK BATMAN... as all it takes is for a legally recognized source to sign off as author!

The Circle is Complete!
