For the animated series And You Thought It Would Fail : On its announcement and launch, many disliked the idea a future-Batman who wasn't Bruce Wayne or any of the Robins, but in fact a Canon Foreigner who was in high school on basic principle, and even more the notion that it was set in the continuity to Batman: The Animated Series with many seeing TNBA as a weak follow-up and wanting a true sequel series. Instead, it became far and away the most successful legacy adaptation for DC, embraced by audiences of both the classic and new Batman, and seen to sit side-by-side with Frank Miller 's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns as a "future Batman" story with Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker in particular considered not only one of the best DCAU films if not the best but one of the greatest Batman and Joker stories period, with many parts of it being adapted again in the Batman: Arkham Series.
Nightwing Returns and Max Soars!
Some fascinating aspects of pop culture to me are sexual and phallic references in movies and art, unintentional or otherwise. I think I am by far more fascinated with the unintentional, but this does not seem to be the case in this scene in the 'Batman Beyond' animated series. One of the first Supervillains that the young Batman faces is 'Inque' a female glob who can mutate and slither around. Here, Inque is forcing herself headfirst into Batman's mouth.
Batman (Terry McGinnis)
Forty-something years in the future of the DC Animated Universe , Batman no longer patrols Gotham City, having hung up the cape and cowl after his deteriorating health forced him to break one of his most important rules. Crime eventually returns to overtake Gotham, this time in the form of Warriors-style street gangs who base their identities around Batman's former archenemies. The most prominent of these groups, The Jokerz, have a chance encounter with a teenager named Terry McGinnis voiced by Will Friedle , who gets chased by the clowns right to the outskirts of Wayne Manor. An aged and reclusive Bruce Wayne still voiced by Kevin Conroy comes to Terry's aid, but the fight takes its toll on the former superhero. Terry helps Bruce back into Wayne Manor, but soon stumbles upon the Batcave and learns the secret of the Batman.
