I think you are going to like this comment, Tom. :)

Ray Crandle reminded me of Batman from Miller's Dark Knight Returns but
mainly this was because he was old.  In this issue, he came across as
more of a Superman archetype who made dramatic appearances during the
day, wore a bright costume and even signed autographs.  Martin, by
contrast, had worn a black costume, appeared at night and was more of
an urban legend that didn't interact with people.  So Martin was more
the Batman archetype than Ray, even though to begin with Ray was the
mentor and he was the sidekick.

How's that?
