There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
At least 40 years after the "current" adventures of Batman and 20 years after Bruce Wayne retired from the role, his secret is discovered by troubled teen Terry McGinnis. After McGinnis' father is murdered by the man who took over Bruce Wayne's company, McGinnis dons a high-tech Bat suit that Wayne last used, creating a new hero for a future Gotham. Written by
The clothing and fashion sense of the era that the series is set in, is a a very eclectic one. The creators have stated that one of themes they wanted to explore in the series was the class battle. With the primary villains ranging from the over-class corrupt businessmen (Derek Powers for instance) to the lowest of the dregs (the JOKERZ and other gangs), the clothing would always feel different. The new style of clothing would have a very Victorian/Old English feel to them, to further illustrate the Dickensian themes (most notably those from "A Tale of Two Cities"). In addition to the clothing, the structure of the city would play on the themes as well. For example, the lower you are on the class levels, the higher you would have to rise to get to the industrial and business districts (via future tech elevators and monorails among other things).

This is so good! i ate this show up with a gold spoon..i love batman (except batman and robin), and was blown away. Part blade runner..part Akira, part spiderman 2099 (if anyone remembers that comic). this is a great way to give batman a twist and i welcome it on saturday mornings...just wish i'd get up for it! I'm so glad the shows branching off and being true to the comics it's like an animated "Elseworlds" issuse...terrific.
