the yellow oval around the Bat-symbol being erased.
What's everyone's views on the different colorings? I have the Deluxe Edition because it's the most easily available, but I do prefer the original (though Bolland's new coloring seamlessly updates the art and makes it look like a modern comic). You'd think that with Bolland doing the coloring this time around it would be definitive, but it seems to clash with his original intention, as evident by the yellow oval around the Bat-symbol being erased.

Earlier this year, there was a big backlash over a variant front cover for a Batgirl comic because it featured the Joker smearing a bloody smile over Batgirl's face. What was obviously a homage to The Killing Joke, critics (mainly feminists and social justice warriors) took issue with it because they claimed it was misogynistic.
I read a blog where a BvS fan tore apart a YouTube critic's negative review of BvS, and one of the points why the critic hated the film was because it demonstrated "toxic masculinity" during the Batman vs Superman fight scene. Why? Because of Batman's "you're not brave. Men are brave" line. Because men are diabolical in nature, and anything referring to men is sexist against women, right?It turned out that critic is a massive SJW who is a "philosophy" graduate student. Education standards must be really low nowadays.
I love (and am borderline obsessed with) Mark Waid's work but as a person he's completely FOS so there's a lot to be said for ignoring his public statements, the ninny.
