He's recently indicated he'd like to [[PlayingAgainstType go against type]] and tackle ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, exploring Cap's idealism contrasted with the dark post-9/11 world. Considering how his previous major use of the character (''ComicBook/DaredevilBornAgain'', ironically enough) had Miller write some of Cap's most memorable moments (and lines, such as the immortal "I'm loyal to nothing, General...except the Dream.")...that might not be too bad of an idea.

*** ''Dark Knight Returns'' was a fairly respectful Superman treatment. Took the view of "Superman is a good guy, but won't step outside the law / civilian authority structures like Batman will". Which isn't too unfair. [[spoiler: Then Superman breaks his ThouShallNotKill rule to kill dirty communists, nearly gets killed by a nuke *even though he's been surviving nukes since ''1947'', and basically turning Superman into an ''energy vampire''...]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: It works with the ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' and fails miserably in ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' - so miserably, it's a suspected StealthParody.

** The basic premise of Batman: Year One, from Gordon's side at least, is that of {{Serpico}}, one honest cop trying to do good in a system full of corrupt cops. In fact, one might call it [[RecycledInSpace Serpico with Batman]].

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Or at least influences the setting; Miller was mugged twice on the streets of New York before beginning his Daredevil run. This probably helps to explain why the city is often seen as a crime-ridden pit.

Miller has been the center of controversy and the hatred of a [[HateDom very vocal sector of the Internet population]], mostly due to his perceived over-representation of prostitutes, sadistic violence (seen as violence for the sake of it), and his libertarian and hawkish political views, although many people alternatively like his works [[TropesAreNotBad for exactly those reasons]]. Hence the fan conflicts. For instance, many people think his portrayal of prostitutes and female heroes implies a form of misogyny; '''''however''''', fans will point out that not only are said prostitutes portrayed as sympathetic and strongly independent characters, but that two of Frank's most famous creations are ComicBook/{{Elektra}} and [[ComicBook/GiveMeLiberty Martha Washington]].

* Franchise/{{Batman}} in general - ''Comicbook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' and ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', famously. ''[[ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder All Star Batman and Robin]]'' and ''Comicbook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain'', infamously. He easily the most famous author of really bad Bat man stories.
