This has been mentioned at cons over the past couple of years as a possibility and I am thrilled we are not only getting an annual but a mini series. Batman Beyond was a cartoon that really captured the spirit of DC and the whole multiverse concept. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and grab one of the seasons on DVD. It takes place in a possible future where Batman is retired.
The excellent part of this series was Terry McGinnis. If you are going to have a successor for Bruce, it needs to be someone you can rally behind. Terry was very accessible and he often gave you the feeling that you could be Batman and that Bruce would be your mentor. I geek out at that kind of presentation.
Can you tell I am excited for this mini and annual?
