Storm and The Black Panther, T'Challa and Ororo
It's foolish to hate characters for actions that are controlled by writers.
If you don't like a character's behavior, blame the writer.
"People don't actually like Wonder Woman. They like the idea in their head of what a "wonder woman" ought to be, which usually bears little resemblance to the character in the comics." - JKCarrier
Like someone else said a few pages back, the idea of a serious live-action Batman is in and of itself an uphill battle.
Let's face it: in real life, pretty much all of Batman's enemies would look more dignified than he does. Almost all of them know to put on pants when they go outdoors.
Comic books and animation can cheat anatomy all they like, but live-action is severely limited.
The art is good for the most part, alot better than the Batman Forever comic art, that was just atrocious.
I guess in my book when its not ok to watch something for kids is when its filled with marketing of toys and no real direction. Mainly because thats not too entertaining.

I remember someone making a list of most evil people in the history of the world ever....
It went something like:
Joel Schumacher (Batman & Robin)
Overall the movie was bad. But there was one good thing about it which was Alicia Silverstone in tight leather.
Why do we hate Batman & Robin?
Let me give you some reasons:
1) Robin as a moron
3) the horrible acting
4) Batgirl as an extremely moronic version of Xena
6)the slapstick approach of the whole concept
7) Gotham City depicted as an gigantic Super Mario level
And who can forget the legendary bat credit card?
I think the Adam West TV show was a product of its time, so trying to recreate it in the late 90s. I think you have a comic book movie that is light hearted and fun, without a campy farce like Batman and Robin was. There was just no interesting plot or characterization in B & R, everyone was a one dimensional cartoon character, it lacked a human element, that all good comic book movies have.
