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.
Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?

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
For Season 3, Glen Murakami and 'Bruce Timm' were considering doing a story where Terry actually gets to go an a date with Dana since she always got the short end of the stick as Terry went off to fight crime. This story would have Terrybreaking dates throughout the story but eventually succeeding at going on a date with Dana at the end of the story. Glen pitched the idea to Alan Burnett who tried to make it work as a story. Burnett made several changes that had Terry not only miss the date with Dana, but Dana gets so mad at Terry she dumps him. Terry then went to Max and pour his heart out to her and then Terry and Max end up 'making out'. Timm and Murakami had the story faxed to them while they were in Japan and when Timm read it he was furious and gave Burnett an angry phone call. Burnett said he had made the changes because 1)D ana was the nagging girlfriend and having Terry make out with someone else would be a surprise and 2) to change the precedent of all these super shows having the hero going through their life and the series with one steady girlfriend See more »
Look, if you had any proof they were going to do something, it would be different. But I'm not going to change my plans because of a hunch.
Hey, I put my life on the line all the time. One night isn't going to make any difference.
One night always makes the difference.

For a cartoon set in the future, 'Batman Beyond' appears slick and glossy. It is fun to watch, and is well-made. Considering his fine voice work as Batman/Bruce Wayne in 'Batman: The Animated Series,' Kevin Conroy was a perfect choice for the elderly version of our hero in 'Batman Beyond.'
Here he is about 40 years into the future. He may walking with a cane now, and unable to continue being Batman, but he can still give someone a good slug or two.
It's been 20 years since Bruce Wayne retired from his life as Batman (due to a mild heart attack). Because of this, Gotham City had spent these two long decades without the Dark Knight. But that changes when a teenager named Terry McGinnis enters the picture and makes the connection that Batman was really Bruce Wayne. McGinnis becomes the new Dark Knight to avenge the murder of his father.
Bruce Wayne may be too old to be Batman anymore, but it's good that the persona has been reborn in Terry McGinnis. Besides, without Batman (any Batman), Gotham City would fall apart.
