This entry was inspired by a picture. Not just any picture, in fact. It was a movie poster.
Movie posters aren't much to shout about really. They usually were character-less Hollywood mechanism that some times obscurely hinted a coming feature film, and then they were gone. Movie posters are still around but they pale in comparison to the tweets, rumors, forums, blogs and fan-sites around today that get movie news international faster than illegal migrant workers.
This blog entry was inspire by one of these movie posters. This movie poster was released in 1989 and wasn't just another PR plot - this one was simple, didn't have captions, no air-brush scenes and was the starting point for a fever that swept many nations, captured the imagination of superhero fans everywhere, and began a saga that promises (now) to carry on until The Dark Knight Rises in 2012.
To quote an unknown (yet fellow) article writer, this was the one that started it all....
