I question the sanity of anyone who thinks Batman 2 had better flying.
Flying is still wonky in Lego Marvel, but you at least have some control of where you are going. I found as long as you only tap directions to make adjustments, you won't make random 180' turns or fly into the ground.

Can they be better? Certainly. Trying to turn quickly is a hot mess. That being said, they're not horrible. They have a learning curve, and you need to be precise with your movements rather than just lumbering around through the sky.
Only the strongest will survive; lead me to heaven when we die. I am a shadow on the wall; I'll be the one to save us all.
i don't understand why the developers insist on shoe horning all controls the face buttons like 'X' and 'O'. It would have made more since to let us use the right stick to control ascending and descending, while the left stick controlled directional movement. Basically the way flight controls in almost every other game. >_<
