  • The new Batman is born and this Batman has created his own Joker (Blight)

    When Bruce gave up being Batman, former troublemaker Terry McGinnis is the new caped crusader, but cooler.
  • The new batman...

    After seeking help from bruce, terry is sent to commishiner barbara gordon. The one who had his father killed stops him and takes the evidence. terry goes back to wayne manor and steals the batsuit he takes care of his father's killer and is accepted by bruce and made the new batman. But his father's old boss who was behind it all is exposed to radiation and is now a supervillain let's say. The cover story for terry is that he works for bruce wayne. This is a great conclusion to th pilot episode and this is a very great way to start the series. the whole idea of the batman of the future is so original and excellent. Later...
  • getting better

    so its the second part of the pilot, and finally terry gets in to the bat suit, and goes to kick ass. The episode carry straight on from last and is a lot better. We see terry in action as he comes to grips as the new batman. He finds out who killed his father, and goes out to seek revenge as well as stop the future of chemical warfare. This episode is filled with action and is quite good. the episode finishes with bruce wayne hiring terry for a permanant job, a metaphore for being batman full time. very good
  • A Batman is born

    Continuing from where the previous episode left off, Bruce Wayne lets Terry inside his manor and tells him to go to Comissioner Barbara Gordon for help; he refuses to let him take the new and improved Batman suit.
    Terry leaves but he meets some of Powers' bodyguards who want to make sure the police won't find out anything about the little "incident" involving McGinniss' father; Terry however manages to escape. He returns to the Batcave and "borrows" the semi-robotic Batsuit in order to avenge his father's death.
    Guided by Wayne himself, Terry manages to defeat all of Powers' guards and avenges his father's death.

    Memorable scene: When Terry is fighting Mr. Fixx, he sais "I am Batman". I don't know about you, but that scene impressed me.
