  1. BATMAN is seriously a good comic and better movie character than superman, at least for me. I am convinced that BATMAN captured a huge market but the same strategy was adopted by superman, spiderman, hulk or even by shaktimaan. A win-win strategy for both businessman and customer.

  2. This article has astonished me as to how a superhero can be a marketeer. A very nice piece of work. Good job Guys!
