A little more on that …
Not sure if it was in Steranko’s HISTORY OF COMICS, or in an essay by Jules Feiffer elsewhere (… possibly in THE GREAT COMIC BOOK HEROES) but it was once observed that, while Batman could occasionally be knocked out by a wild punch from – Oh, say The Joker, for example – ‘The Spirit’ usually needed to be literally buried with adversaries before he’d go down.
… and he’d always go down fighting.
