DC and the Justice League, OTOH, come from the perspective of "We were extraordinary individuals who became even better!" Batman is really the only one who can relate to Marvel's kind of audience...but maybe
can have some potential if they play off the plot of Smallville.
Marvel takes the guy who's below average and gives him power and then says "How would this guy react?"
DC comics say "Somewhere we lost a step to Marvel. ALL OUR HEROES must have more power/abilities/strengths than them."
You can relate to Batman. He's human, even if a ga-zillionaire. He's still human.
Then...then it just gets stupid on the DC side...
