Show Summary

Batman Beyond premiered on January 10, 1999. It told the story about a new and different Batman. It takes place far in the future, years after Batman appeared for the last time. Terry McGinnis rekindles the fire in Bruce Wayne's bitter old heart, and takes up the role as the new Dark Knight - with the old one as his mentor. With a new ruler of Gotham City, Derek Powers, crime is at an all-time high. After Terry finds out Bruce's secret and his father is killed, Terry becomes the new Batman. He has to juggle life being a superhero, and being a high school student. He's a more high-tech Batman, with rocket boots and cloaks. He's the Knight of Tomorrow. Spin-off: The Zeta Project.

    I have only 1 word to say: SHWAY!
  • Honorable Effort

    9.0
    This shows is overall strong illustrating a teenage Batman in Darker,grittier high tech Future setting. My complaints are minor and largely have to do with the treatment of characters such as Tim Drake, Talia al Ghul, and Superman, from earlier series. While Terry was clever and full of heart he lacked the mind of a master detective. The show had at times too much of high school feel at time, but such is the price of a teenage batman.



    I greatly enjoyed the show and hope to seen some form of come back. Maybe Terry after Bruce passes.moreless

    When I first watched this series, I really enjoyed it. I liked the character of Terry and I thought that a lot of the baddies made sense. Especially the Joker gangs. But there were quiet a few things which made me cringe and wish that they'd decided to leave alone. The reveal of Terry's parentage being one of them. Overall, I really did love it and whenever possible I tried not to miss an episode.moreless
