I changed the image caption, removing this long footnote: "The picture comes from College Humor's "The Dark Knight Meets Superman" video. Superman's holding the Joker, Rachel Dawes and Harvey Dent, thus preventing the entire plot of The Dark Knight about a quarter of the way into the film. Oddly enough, Dent becomes Two-Face anyway later on in the clip."

If the picture is to illustrate, it's better to give an example than explain. Besides, this veers into explaining unrelated things. It's not easy to caption this, but I put in the following condensed dialogue from the clip, which I think seems to give the example enough content that it doesn't need explaining.

"Rachel and Harvey are being held by the Joker in two separate warehouses, really far apart, like, twenty blocks—"

"Are you f*ing kidding me? BRB!"

I think, with that, it should be evident whom Superman is holding in the picture and what it has to do with anything.

I don't think that hottip added much, but your caption is fairly long.

I'm not sure what you mean by "added much". Some kind of explanation is needed, anyhow.

It doesn't improve the image or page much.

Still page for "Brainiac Is Kept Out Of Gotham" I rather like that one.

At the end of War Crimes Batman gets Chen (A Gotham New anchor) and interview with Superman, she asks "Can he really leap tall buildings in a single bound?" to which Batman respond "Not in MY city" Badass Normal to the core.

I see no film examples yet, though the Avengers universe definitely will justify it soon.

This is mostly a Comic Book thing, where different genres of heroes who wouldn't be inhabiting the same universe in other medium are inevitably put together in the comics. But things like Super Smash Bothers and and Dissida arguable make it a poential issue in some Video Games. And no also Mario&Sonic at the Olympic games.
