"When a user enters a query, our machines search the index for matching pages and return the results we believe are the most relevant to the user. Relevancy is determined by over 200 factors, one of which is the PageRank for a given page. PageRank is the measure of the importance of a page based on the incoming links from other pages. In simple terms, each link to a page on your site from another site adds to your site's PageRank. Not all links are equal: Google works hard to improve the user experience by identifying spam links and other practices that negatively impact search results. The best types of links are those that are given based on the quality of your content."

....when a studio like Warner Brothers produces their own gritty reboot of a character,
Batman is the story of a boy who witnessed his parent's murders and then decided to dress up like a bat in order to punish criminals. Other than the 60s live action TV show and the 80s Superfriends cartoon when wasn't Batman gritty? Have you read The Dark Knight Returns? Or The Killing Joke? Or the original Detective Comics stories? Even Burton had Batman kill at least a dozen henchman in 1989. FFS Bats was blowing guys away with a pistol in 1939. Are you aware of the Batman mythos at all? Who submitted this? Oh.
