Batman Beyond Episode 12

Ah yes, the legendary and slightly notorious episode of Justice League which was supposed to be the finale of the entire DCAU but wound up being an overly ambitious masterpiece that left quite a few casual fans scratching their heads.

Batman Beyond Episode 12

In this episode, we finally start to expand the Batman story outside of just Terry and Bruce. Barbara Gordon was introduced earlier in the season, and officially met Terry in episode 10, but here we finally get a complete picture of who she is. And who she is, is a curt professional who has looked the other way regarding Batman due to her ties to Bruce, but who is jaded towards the vigilante lifestyle.

As Terry (Will Friedle) and Bruce (Kevin Conroy) puzzle over the movements of the assassin Curaré, Commissioner Barbara Gordon (Stockard Channing) arrives, much to the young hero's surprise in this clip from the season one episode of Batman Beyond, "A Touch of Curaré." Watch the complete series now on HBO Max.

DC's animated shows are just as exciting and fantastic as the comics they are based on. And just like the comics, DC's cartoons aren't afraid to tell darker stories involving their heroes. These darker tales, however, can sometimes surprise the audience with a sudden twist that flips the whole episode on its head.

The 1970s Super Friends cartoon is typically remembered for its goofy but fun adventures, but in the episode "History of Doom," aliens arrive at Earth to find that it has been destroyed. While going through some tapes left behind in the Hall of Justice by Superman, the aliens discover that Lex Luthor destroyed the planet in an attempt to attack the Friends with powerful sunbeams.

The episode is surprisingly morbid for such a usually colorful show, as the aliens watch Superman admit that evil has triumphed over good. Although the aliens grant the Super Friends another chance to defeat the Legion of Doom, it is still haunting to know that just one mistake by the heroes could spell doom for the world.

In the Justice League episode "A Better World," the Justice League heroes are turned into authoritarian villains after Lex Luthor becomes the president and kills The Flash in a parallel timeline. The new Justice Lords rule Earth with an iron fist and are quick to discard anybody who gets in the way of the greater good.

Robin's mental state altered in the Teen Titans episode "Haunted." Not believing that Slade is dead, Robin picks up his mask, but accidentally inhales a hallucinogen. The deadly villain suddenly appears like a ghost, but only to Robin, causing his teammates to think that their leader is experiencing extreme trauma.

Robin's infatuation with bringing Slade down is shown throughout the series, but Robin's mental state is often hidden from the rest of the team. In this episode, fans get a glimpse of just how much pain Slade has caused the young hero.

The fascist new world order is terrifying, as the heroes witness the Nazi's ultimate goal brought to fruition. Although the episode is pure fantasy, as the League goes back in time to help the Allies win, it is also a grim reminder of the sacrifices made during history's darkest hour.

The series finale of Justice League Unlimited is also one of the series' most memorable episodes. In "Epilogue," Terry McGinnis finds out that he is Bruce Wayne's biological son. After Amanda Waller realized how much the world needed Batman, she created a plan to keep his legacy going.

Batman Beyond began airing on January 10, 1999 and ended its run on December 18, 2001 with 52 episodes. A direct-to-video movie, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, was released but plans for a second feature and another season were cancelled in favor of a Justice League animated series. There was a short-lived spin-off, The Zeta Project. It is worth noting that in The Zeta Project's first season episode "Shadows", there is a crossover with Batman Beyond; in this continuity, the story takes place between the episode "Countdown" and the series finale "Unmasked."

This series is the chronological end to what is known as the DC animated universe, though the actual end is the Justice League Unlimited episode, "Epilogue" being set about sixteen years later.

In the pilot episode, which is set approximately in the year 2019, an aging Batman is having increasing difficulty handling criminals he once subdued with ease. His allies, Alfred Pennyworth, Lucius Fox, James Gordon, Harvey Bullock, Renee Montoya and Leslie Thompkins have passed away of natural causes while his partners, Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Tim Drake, and Selina Kyle are still alive and have grown up and left or had falling outs with Bruce after their retirement from their alter-egos. One night, a heart attack forces Batman to betray a lifelong principle by threatening a criminal with a gun (the same one that murdered his parents), despite already wearing a new, high-tech Batsuit. Subsequently, Bruce Wayne decides to retire the Batman persona, and crime fighting in general, permanently.

In 2039, Terry McGinnis (born on August 18, 2023) is an athletic sixteen year-old high school student, and reformed troublemaker with a deeply ingrained sense of personal justice. During the pilot episode, he saves a fellow passenger on a commuter rail from being hassled by one of the Jokerz, and later single-handedly takes on an entire gang of them to defend his girlfriend, ultimately resulting in a harrowing high-speed motorcycle chase through Neo-Gotham's expressways. The chase ultimately ends at the doorstep of Wayne Manor, where a fleeing Terry runs into the elderly Bruce Wayne. Bruce and Terry fend off the Jokerz side-by-side, but the exertion aggravates his heart condition. Terry helps Bruce back to the manor, and while staying there, he discovers the entrance to the Batcave, and later returns to "borrow" the Batsuit to avenge the death of his father. As crime and corruption are beginning once again to rear their ugly heads in Gotham, Bruce ultimately allows Terry to assume the mantle of Batman.

Terry also finds one other ally, though a begrudging one: Barbara Gordon, the former Batgirl. Having followed in the footsteps of her father, James Gordon, Barbara is now Police Commissioner of Gotham City. In one episode, Barbara reveals to Terry that she and Bruce had once been romantically involved. However, she is unhappy with the idea of a new Batman, especially a teenager, as she is still haunted by the same event that caused Bruce to go into isolation. However, knowing from personal experience that she cannot deter Terry anymore than she could have been deterred from being Batgirl, she relents, possibly also out of respect for her mentor and former lover, the original Batman. Also, passing conversation between Barbara and Bruce suggested that at the time of Batgirl's retirement, the suit had bullet holes in it that had been repaired.

In the third season of Batman Beyond, a two-part story featuring the Justice League Unlimited entitled "The Call" formed an early basis for Timm's next series, Justice League, which was in turn succeeded by Justice League Unlimited. The setting and characters of Batman Beyond were also briefly revived in 2004 for an episode of Static Shock in which Static is accidentally transported forty years into the future.

Justice League Unlimited revisited the world of Batman Beyond twice in 2005. The first time featured Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern transported 50 years into the future to stop a time-traveling villain with the help of the future Justice League Unlimited, including Terry McGinnis as Batman. The second time occurred during the episode Epilogue", where the true secret origin of the future Batman is learned in a story meant to be the de facto series finale for this Batman's story.

The supervillain Stalker was to have appeared in The Zeta Project episode "Taffy Time," but didn't make it. The second season episode "Ro's Gift" has an appearance made by the Brain Trust from the Batman Beyond episode "Mind Games." Terry McGinnis/Batman was originally slated to appear in this episode as well, but was cut since Bruce Timm and company were working on Justice League.[4]

Originally, Batman Beyond #3 (the monthly series) was to focus on The Terrific Trio from the Batman Beyond episode "Heroes." The story would have 2-D Man and Magma trying to revive their former teammate, Freon. It was rejected due to their resemblance to the Fantastic Four.[5]
