Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Batman Beyond was the futuristic follow-up to the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series from the team of Paul Dini, Alan Burnett, Andrea Romano, and others (though less self-winking for comics fans than that series). High school kid Terry McGinnis's run-in with a biker gang called the Jokers leads to a chance encounter with a rich recluse named Bruce Wayne. McGinnis soon discovers that 20 years ago Wayne was Batman, but has since retired from active duty. Not getting any help from Wayne, McGinnis swipes the Bat suit--now tricked-up with enhanced strength, flight capability, and nifty gadgets--and sets out to right a wrong perpetrated by his father's former business partner, Derek Powers. Subsequent adventures in the 13-episode season deal with some teen hang-ups as well as supervillains, who are mostly new except for Bane and Mr. Freeze. Excellent voice work is by Will Friedle (McGinnis), Kevin Conroy (continuing his role from Batman: The Animated Series), Stockard Channing (as Commissioner Barbara Gordon), and guest stars including Star Trek's George Takei. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

Terry McGinnis was just an ordinary teenager...until his father was mysteriously murdered. Suspecting foul play at his father's company Wayne/Powers Corporation, Terry meets Bruce Wayne and learns a secret identity hidden for decades. Now too old to battle injustice, Wayne refuses to help. So Terry does what any brash young kid would do: steal the Batsuit and take matters into his own hands! Vowing to avenge his father's death, Terry dons the high-tech suit ? tricked out with jetpacks, a supersensitive microphone and even camouflage capabilities ? in search of his father's assassin. Get in on the action from the beginning of a new partnership between an ex-crimefighter and his apprentice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman Goes Beyond Single Disc Releases! February 23, 2006
Format:DVD
Gotham, the future. Dark Knight Terry McGinnis and his mentor Bruce Wayne fight to rid the city of the criminal element which infests it. Armed with a high-tech Batsuit, a hover-converted Batmobile and the vast training and guidance of the original Batman, McGinnis transcends the Batman legacy as a new hero for a new era.

It may have been created [by the producers of "Batman: The Animated Series" at the request of Warner Bros.] to attract a new generation of viewers by injecting the dark detective with new, younger blood, but the futuristic "Batman Beyond" (like Batman: TAS) was a show for Batfans of all ages. Ironically, much of Batman Beyond's charm can be attributed to the generation gap between Terry and Bruce as displayed in "Dead Man's Hand" where they clash over their pursuit of the Royal Flush Gang. One of whom (Melanie/Ten) Terry has romantic feelings for and later reluctantly places into police custody. "This sort of thing ever happen to you?," Terry asks. Bruce warmly smiles with "Let me tell you about a woman named Selina Kyle." Great stuff. Batman Beyond was a cool series that featured the phenomenal voice talents of Will Friedle (Boy Meets World), Kevin Conroy (Batman: TAS), Lauren Tom (Superman: TAS), Teri Garr (Mr. Mom), and Sherman Howard (Superboy); first-rate scripts; frenetic action; and one of TV's coolest opening main titles; Not to mention sensational main title and score music by Kristopher Carter.

Previously released as single disc individual episode releases, Warner Home Video finally delivers Batman Beyond - The Complete First Season DVD on March 21st! The 2-disc set features all 13 episodes from the first season; Full Frame (1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Beyond with the Future Batman December 19, 2005
By Simon
Format:DVD
A long time coming, I'm so glad Warner Bros has finally decided to give us box sets of this show. We get all 13 season 1 episodes here, which introduce us to the new Batman Terry McGinnis, and also most of his major foes: Shriek, Spellbinder, Curare, Inque, a new Royal Flush Gang, and also Derek Powers/Blight, the show's Lex Luthor equivalent. Also notable are revelations to past Batman villains, namely Mr. Freeze and Bane.

If you liked the recent animated Batman volume sets, Batman Beyond is worth checking out. True it's a new take on Batman, but it's also one that adds to the continuity of the classic shows and portrays the same mature sensabilities, sharp dialogue, and fun action we got before. Old Bruce Wayne is a cranky extension of his younger self, and his relationship with Terry is a new dynamic not seen with the previous Robins or Batgirl. Considering that this series originated as KidsWB wanting to sell more toys and appeal to "younger demographics," it says something that not only does this show not destroy the Batman legacy, but in fact enriches it and gives the Timm/Dini/Burnett collaboration something they can proudly call their own.

This set will include commentaries, interviews, and even a music-only track. I should note that this set only includes 1 episode that has not been released to dvd in some form so far. If you bought the previous releases, you technically own most of the content already. However, having a box set is such a nice way to own this series that I'd recommend you sell those discs off in preparation for this one and prepare for Batman...Beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally January 8, 2006
Format:DVD
Despite what others may say about this show, make no mistake that Batman Beyond is pure animated bliss for comic fans. When an aging Bruce Wayne (once again voiced by Kevin Conroy, now sounding aged and sardonic) hangs up the cape and cowl, he becomes the reluctant mentor to young Terry McGiness (voiced by Will Friedle); a resourceful and revenge driven teen whose father has been murdered. With a new, high tech Bat-suit and fancy, futuristic gadgets, Batman Beyond was a smashing new foray into the Batman mythos brought to us by Batman: The Animated Series vets Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. This new Batman also finds a strong rogue gallery in the tradition of the classic Batman, including the shape shifting Inque, Shriek, Spellbinder, the Royal Flush Gang, and a returning Mr. Freeze as well. Sadly, Batman Beyond didn't go down very well with a majority of Bat-fans, but the show really was something special, and it's lightyears beyond the current Batman animated incarnation, The Batman.

3.0 out of 5 stars worthy continuation of the batman's adventures February 1, 2006
Format:DVD
ok when i first saw this show i was very skeptical..i come from the batman the animated series old school...after watching the return of the joker film ..i was impressed . the show fast forwards 20 yrs later after bruce wayne retires from being the batman(still voiced to perfection by kevin conroy)..and we find that wayne has a new protege..and new high tech weapons . this is a worty follow up to BTAS and is worth a look...although the storylines could have been better though

ps its cool to see wayne's dog ace from the early 90s books in the show as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Content, Lousy Packaging May 31, 2006
Format:DVD
I won't waste your time recounting the episodes. Instead, let's look at the execution:

Impressive visualization. Thin, precise lines, balancing straight (futuristic) against curved (human); nothing muddy. Carefully chosen colors, nothing garish, but nothing mundane. Lots of flat, one-color surfaces: no attempt to be realistic (face it: reality is dusty, dirty, messy). Style convincingly Americanizes anime.

Setting has some overtones of Akira or William Gibson's cyberpunk Tokyo, but hardly a slavish imitation, and no worship of futurific technology.

Stories are imaginative, well written, with a generous share of telling one-liners. Example: in "Dead Man's Hand," a society blonde protests being robbed of her jewels, and Jack, one of the robbers, comments, "She probably got them the old-fashioned way." That cruelty is acted out later when King, top dog of the outfit, slaps 10 across the face, drawing blood: this criminal family is bound together, finally, by greed and violence. The plot makes much of parallel relationships: 10's need for personal freedom brings her into conflict with her father, as does Terry's with Bruce.

Imaginative stories make for imaginative animation. To my mind, the best are the two Inque stories. The protean Inque lets the animators run wild, so to speak (rather like Jack Cole with Plasticman).

Voices (Will Friedle, Kevin Conroy, Stockard Channing) are superb, ditto the music. One of the DVD "Additional Features" is "Music of the Knight": five segments from four episodes, shown with music alone, no dialogue. A great idea--except that the music selections aren't mine. It would have been nice to have the option to turn off dialogue for the whole of each episode. Oh, well . . .

So what's the problem?

Eric, the show was created because of the Spiderman movie (#1) that was in production at the time. So that the animated version wouldn't conflict with the movie, the producers decided to put Spiderman in an alternative universe and Counter-Earth was born. I believe Batman Beyond came first and... Read more
