When a dark avenger leaves a flaming logo as warning an omen/calling card. An announcement that he's been there, watching or coming after you. It's become a common and recognizable trope in movies, but I'm wondering how common. Here's the ones I could find so far... Zorro leaves his mark in- Zorro's Fighting Legion (1939) Lighting up a hill side with a giant "Z' as warning to his enemies he's coming after them, and as a sort of signal for Zorro or the "Legion" to assemble (yes it predates the Bat-Signal.) The Crow leaves his mark (1994) The Mask of Zorro leaves his mark (1998). An homage scene to the (1939) Zorro's Fighting Legion. Also used extensively in the opening credits and in The Legend of Zorro (2005) promos - Dare Devil leaves his mark (2003) The Punisher leaves his mark (2004) FF leave their mark (2005) Not really dark avengers, but definitely follows the same trope. (Anyone know when it first appeared in the comic?) The Dark Knight leaves his mark (2008) Not in the movie, but they used the idea for the add campaign and poster.
