Thanks for the reply. I'll have to diverge though, and say that the Stallone Dredd doesn't hold a candle to the 2012 film; I'd also say that Dredd 2012 is better than The Avengers, because though entertaining the latter simply doesn't possess the maturity of the former.
Robert Downey Jr irritates me (at least in the role of Tony Stark), yet Karl Urban brings the right approach to Dredd (which I'd agree is a character inherently of substance - much more substance than of Batman as well).
Dredd 2012 has energy, great music, fun use of camera, and grounded and mature story (although I accept the criticism that the plot itself didn't necessarily represent the mythology of Dredd).
Would you say that the Judge Dredd world is better than Marvel, including things like X-Men.
