Batman Beyond The Complete Series
Back in the early and mid-1990s Warner Bros. Animation produced a new animated series based on the Batman and Batman Returns movies directed by Tim Burton.
Borrowing heavily from the then current Batman mystique at DC Comics, Batman: The Animated Series was a huge hit with Batman fans.
It is still one of my all-time favorite animated series.
When it was announced that Warner Bros. would be putting out a new Batman (non-Bruce Wayne) animated series set in the future I was skeptical.
“Why? What’s the point?”, I pondered.
Being curious I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised.
Batman Beyond kept the legend of Batman alive and added in a few twists and innovations of its own.
Batman Beyond centers on Terry McGinnis, a street-wise student/punk who has a talent for getting in trouble and staying there.
When Terry stumbles upon the secret that Bruce Wayne is Batman sparks fly.
For reasons known only to him Bruce agrees to let Terry don his super-tech Batman costume and fight crime under his direction and tutelage.
At first Bruce and Terry are at odds with other but eventually they learn to respect and trust each other.
Batman Beyond successfully updates the Batman legacy, introduces some futuristic versions of Batman’s Rogue’s Gallery and an impressive plethora of original villains of its own.
I love it!
Warner Bros. presents the new boxed set Batman Beyond The Complete series Blu-ray/Digital Collection.
Included with the complete series episodes are some outstanding extras.
Included with the set are a Limited Edition Chrome Batman Beyond Funko Pop figure and Lenticular Collector Cards with original animation artwork.
The 52 episodes set also comes with a Batman Beyond movie and several featurettes.
What a great Batman Beyond collection! Celebrate 80 years of Batman and purchase this collection.
