So once upon a time (back when Ultimate Marvel was the newest, biggest thing and the New 52 wasn’t even a twinkle in creator’s eyes) people wanted to know what an Ultimate line from DC would look like.

As you can see, some costume elements were later used in the New 52 as well as in Batman Begins and Man of Steel. It's also worth noting that both The Dark Knight (2008) and Ultimate Batman drew some inspiration from Se7en (1995). This article may have inspired the Amazon's Attack storyline as well.
