Well, at least now we know that "The New 52" and Batman Beyond universes are (more than likely) one and the same! The guys over at Bleeding Cool spotted this hard-to-miss easter egg in the pages of Batman #20 today, and while we don't know how much more of the issue it features in, the site goes on to say that it, "looks like it won’t be the only time we see this costume..." Could this be an indication that Snyder is planning on further exploring the build up to Terry McGinnis taking over as the Caped Crusader? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this in the usual place!

Nice! Loving Snyder's Batman. Maybe the new Batwing armor was the prototype for this.
JohnLamb - 5/8/2013, 7:06 AM

OptimusFlynn - 5/8/2013, 7:08 AM
Friggin sweet! Capullo's art is yet again awesome!

Love Snyder but please get rid of that Fox character. he's poison to the brand.
Ramiel - 5/8/2013, 7:12 AM
Well, isn't that something...
JoeMomma29 - 5/8/2013, 7:21 AM
I hope they do a Batman Beyond movie!
HellsHammer - 5/8/2013, 7:26 AM
Wow Intruder said something positive about DC? It's gonna be a good day :)
sintzu - 5/8/2013, 7:30 AM
i'v alwayse wanted a story of bruce using that suit and it looks like i'm going to get it and better yet from the best batman writer to date

HavocPrime - 5/8/2013, 7:37 AM
Awesome, love Batman Beyond and the more easter eggs the better.
DanteSparda - 5/8/2013, 7:44 AM
Really cool!

And why is half of the page censored? Let me see it!
DangerDuck83 - 5/8/2013, 7:45 AM
That is just fantastic!!! Love Scott and Greg's Batman!
knocturnalzen10 - 5/8/2013, 7:59 AM
he needs too i love the beyond , terry seems to be the only one with a somewhat happy ending unless the new 52 changes it
Gmoney84 - 5/8/2013, 8:06 AM
Batman Beyond is the tits!!
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/8/2013, 8:07 AM
This suit will be used in BATWING, won't it?!
Luke Fox is Lucius's son. I'm sure he'll probably steal it AND tinker around with it to make it more efficient in all regards.

Don't tell me they put the retarded Nolan version of Fox in the comics?

Jesus, they much be desperate for readers.
TexasAvenger - 5/8/2013, 8:21 AM
Yooo that suit looks so sick! Love me some Batman Beyond.
BigDamnHero - 5/8/2013, 8:21 AM
Just read the issue. It's pretty cool. It's in it for a few pages early on. Left open for more appearances I suppose, but to me it seemed like a simple, fun Easter Egg for fans.

I wouldn't get your hopes up of it returning in a major way. But, I have been wrong before!
jimoakley666 - 5/8/2013, 8:22 AM
Never like Batman Beyond. Always seemed like a lame shitty concept.

@trudy


Your old gym teacher mr johnson doesnt count :)
blackagar94 - 5/8/2013, 8:36 AM
Awesome, loved the cartoon and the current justice league beyond comic.
SUPERSHADOWBAT - 5/8/2013, 8:37 AM
Nice! Would like to see Bruce get to that point where he wears the Beyond uniform. It could be a comic series or mini series that takes place between the current books and the Batman Beyond book. Definitely have Snyder write it.
unknownfacts - 5/8/2013, 8:58 AM
Wow that is pretty awesome.Love how the New 52 combines some of the best elements of the DC universe and weave it into the standard continuity.
thewolfx - 5/8/2013, 9:06 AM
Lol

I just gotta mess wit trudy.
Moakynubs - 5/8/2013, 9:51 AM
Actually really awesome. Maybe in 20 years we'll actually see Batman Beyond start happening?
JoeMomma29 - 5/8/2013, 9:52 AM
Best intro ever!

spiderclone - 5/8/2013, 10:18 AM
nicely designed aswell, has that capullo edge
sephiroth211 - 5/8/2013, 10:19 AM
That's pretty cool right there.
LucasMend - 5/8/2013, 10:24 AM
Awesomeeee. :D is that lucius fox?
JohnnyKrypton - 5/8/2013, 10:26 AM
Doesn't mean a thing, any more than Jason's memorial means TDKR is the same timeline

Bboiblack, without Lucius Fox, Wayne Enterprises would be nothing. Fox is a vital character in the Batman comics. if you read Batman: Earth One, Lucius Fox was one of the first people Bruce Wayne went to for help on becoming the Batman he is today. Fox builds most of Batman's gadgets, which is what Batman casually relies on. If it wasn't for Fox, Batman would still be only using flashlights.
OtakuPapi - 5/8/2013, 12:13 PM
Anything read the latest Batwing and think Luke Fox is the poor man's Black Panther?>
NJdevil12 - 5/8/2013, 1:12 PM
lol If you talk about whenever you "slap skins" with someone, it was either you're first time or you're not doing it very often :p
glasspleiades - 5/8/2013, 1:32 PM
People pickin' on trudy. tut tut
Come now brethren, let us celebrate that one of our collective geeks got his dick/ her vagina well and thoroughly boned. Congratulations.

Also, I think this is merely a passing joke. they say the BBB costume is not cost effective for 20 years. maybe bruce'll give er a spin, but I doubt this is a paradigm shift.
NJdevil12 - 5/8/2013, 2:08 PM
Then you're not doing it right! lol, we're just messing with you man :)

earth 1 aint canon @marauder

"Batman beyond" was a very cool spinoff of "batman the animated series"

On paper, it should have been terrible. It was literally a case of wb going to bruce timm and saying:

"Make batman an angsty teenager"
"Make it look kinda anime"
"Make it futuristic and techno"

All things cinsidered I'm amazed how good it is. "Return of the joker" and the superman /justice league eps were jaw dropping cool.

Intruder-
So you finally got to be queen of the prom? Good for you!
duncboy - 5/8/2013, 8:02 PM
very cool! I like that Batman Beyond has grown from a cartoon to a full fledged character in the DC universe.
exe - 5/9/2013, 8:44 AM
McGinnis is a great Batman. Beyond is a great show.
Superior - 5/9/2013, 5:36 PM
@dellamorte, but still, Lucius is pretty vital
