I think Nolan's version tells a more compelling story.
I like the Nolan-verse, but like the last three Bond films they take the subject a little too seriously and I think that's a legitimate issue with comic book adaptations. It needs to be a little fun, a little cheesy-even if it is the "Dark Knight." As for Burton's Batman, I never considered that a true backstory-more of a day in the life or a snapshot of Batman.
