It's been fascinating having this debate again, I must leave now, because I am off to see the Avengers film. Suck on those eggs baldy.
the reason they're more popular than ever is actually lots of reasons. sure, licensing agreements help, but those have been in place for decades. you now have adults who grew up loving thems as kids who now can see them done justice (and treated respectfully) on the big screen, kids who can discover them via multiple video games and cartoons (and movies), a growing "geek culture" which has now made it less "uncool" to actually be seen in a Captain America t-shirt or reading a Flash comic book, etc etc.
but you're dead wrong here: Batman and Sherlock Holmes ARE better characters than Tarzan and Zorro. Fact.
also, fuck you. just because. stupid foreigners with their stupid early Avengers showings....
