    Does anyone have any ideas for new super villains that could have appeared should the show have continued longer than it did? Heres what I could come up with:

    a) A guy who has an advanced performance-enhancing suit (remember the one that Terry has is 20 years old).

    b) This show would have been a great oppertunity to exploit something with nanotechnology; clouds of nano bots that could form various shapes on command. I can see a scientist turning to evil and using such technology for that end.

    Other than that, I can't really come up with anything else. It seems like the producers got maxed out of ideas as they repeatedly brought back past villains and outright stole others from Marvel during the latter part of the series.

    I hope you know that the producers were fans of Comic books in general. Alot of the Character are to pay homage to Kirby, so they may have derived from his characters. There was an episode of Ninja turtle's which had stuff that was loosely taken from other things Jack did but he is a legend. Kirby for comic is like Hendrix for rock, or like George Clint for Funk.

    Make more gangs that pay tribute to classic Batman villains.

    a teenager who had the same events occur in his life that Bruce and Terry did, except have him not be as fortunate. I know this concept was used for Jason, and GK's Tim, and I remember them going into a back story for Doc Ock which was similar, but tragedy is the archetype for more than half the superheroes out there. It is a virtual prerequiste.

    Well, this is kindof a new villain and an old one mixed into one.

    Basically, a giant plant monster is running rampant through Gotham. Up to no good.

    Bruce obviously suspects Ivy... but when a madman appears on the television claiming paycards in order to stop the creature. (Uh...the plant creature is too strong for Terry.)

    Batman sends him after Ivy, to get help in stopping the thing... and the two sortof team up I guess.

    I dunno, it was just a thought I had.

    I was thinking of a new villain like a "remake" of the Scarecrow, called Phobia, only it's a female, not a male villain

    The villain you're thinking of belongs to Teen Titans.

    It's alright... You must have a mind akin to those of the comic creators. There's a possible future career for ya.

    The dude in return of the joker is a scarecrow type guy
    except hes totally lame.

    My idea is a hero like batso
    that does the vigilante thing exept goes to far.
    This has been done with the series
    But it turned out to br a robot under the control of a kid
    This villan would be a match for mcginnis and perhaps sometime fight with him he just tends to go a lot futher than bats ever would occasionally leading to conflict.

    A kinda spidey/punisher teamup they are friends but are very different crime fighters

    They could do the failed super clone that becomes a mass murdered like say Kane and Spider-man from the Clone saga. Terry vs the Justice Lords Plus(like unlimited only with characters that were developed before Unlimited) . I just want to see how he would take them on
