Observation from abroad

I read this line from an interview with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan before leaving the USA, but it seems worth noting upon my return from the UK:
Michael Caine had a great line: "Superman is the way America sees itself, but Batman is the way the world sees America."
During my 10 days abroad, people addressed this worldview indirectly -- whether discussing the Olympic successes of China, the war between Russia and Georgia, or the seemingly improbable idea that the Democrats have nominated Barack Obama for the presidency.
