Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
But then, it should be at the start of countless other films, too. The pages seemed to buzz with information, not just about Batman, but about the Gotham citizens and media pundits who debated their mysterious hometown superhero. Reading the comics was like flicking between ten different television channels, each of them with their own perspective on the same breathless story of urban blight and impending Armageddon. It was a Twitter feed, years ahead of schedule. His grittily satirical saga was set not in the present day, as most superhero comics are, but in a possible near-future, which meant that rules could be broken and iconic characters could be killed. In the opening pages of the first issue, the fiftysomething Bruce Wayne is a racing driver who has been out of the crime-fighting business for a decade.
Over the years, many of our best writers and artists have given in to the allure of pitting the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight against each other in a brains-vs-brawn fight to the finish. Some of these battles have been brutally violent, while others have been much less serious and fun.

Green Arrow played a role in it, as well, shooting Superman with a kryptonite arrow. The heart attack, of course, was all a ruse by Batman so that he could go underground.
