Looks amazingly bad ass
But even though I love terry a lot they did find a way to make it sorta about batman again

Sadly we will never get Terry Mcgillis in a movie or a Spider-Man 2099. But that said these look good and do marvel and dc just swap writers and artist every few years?

A lot of the time John Romita JR just needs the right colourist. I like that cover.
marvel72 - 5/3/2014, 4:56 AM

Someone hit JRjr with ugly-stick

Sweet, I'm glad Terry is stills round, in the new 52.
DrunkenNukem - 5/3/2014, 5:04 AM
love it...im going to pick up this one

Magnanimous - Generally there's a lot of turnover between the publishers since most of the artists are not on exclusive deals and almost everyone is a freelancer. Romita, however, has worked exclusively for Marvel for about thirty years and seeing him over at DC is a huge deal.

Batman Beyond's mask works a lot better in animation that it does here. Is it, like, glued to his lips or something?

Bats Beyond is bad ass!

^I smell a troll
bailey90 - 5/3/2014, 6:41 AM
I thought batman created brother eye?
PenditaMarah - 5/3/2014, 7:29 AM
I always hate batman beyond since the beginning.why he looks like a black panther??why not he just put the traditional cowl instead that black face??stupid.hate it.
patrat18 - 5/3/2014, 9:11 AM
zeonsdemon - Pathetic attempt.


marvel72- It's in the name.

PenditaMarah - Yet here you are. Batman beyond looks like Batman with his mouth covered, who i believe came before Black Panther.
ekrolo2 - 5/3/2014, 9:45 AM
@PenditaMarah

Why would he use a weaker cover for his identity (the cowl) instead of a better one (the full face mask)is what you're asking? And if he did just have his mouth open you would just bitch he looks like Black Panther from the time he had his mouth visible.

Always been a Batman Beyond fan, it'll be dope to see Terry in the New 52, I'll have to check this out. It'd be really dope if, after the Batfleck saga runs it's course, we could get a Batman Beyond live action trilogy. I know they'll probably just reboot Bruce Wayne again for the 1 Billionth time though.
Arrow96 - 5/3/2014, 10:07 AM
Ah damn, I want this. Still wish they'd bring back the TV show...

Wha--?? The Authority??
mrHJK - 5/3/2014, 11:17 AM
Pretty sure most of these comments didn't read the preview. I was so excited, then first page.. Well, hello JARVIS. Seriously DC? wtf
ekrolo2 - 5/3/2014, 11:28 AM
@mrHJK

And Marvel ripping off Blackest Night and Identity Crisis with Nercrosha and Original Sin is okay because...?
SugarYumYum - 5/3/2014, 1:56 PM
The art is on point. Love it.
damntree - 5/3/2014, 2:57 PM
How does he have a mouth?
