I tend to over-think this kind of thing, but I still had a lot of trouble getting on the same wavelength as the show for this reason. It's tempting to say "So what? A superhero's a superhero", and there's definitely an attempt to incorporate some Western hero tropes into the mix. But the fact remains that these "superhero" concepts are borne from to vastly different sets of genres, and jumping into one while expecting the other is going to be disorienting. There's lots of little bits of characterization or world-building that make a lot more sense if you try to filter it through Kamen Rider rather than through Batman.
That said, I refuse to believe all those giant statues everywhere came into being without at least a LITTLE influence from the Joel Schumacher Batman films.
