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 discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
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
Right off the bat with Season 2, the WB network wanted a strong young teenage girl to be in on Terry's secret and hopefully share his adventures with. It was decided to have Max Gibson, a friend and classmate of Terry's, be in on Terry's secret. None of the writers liked the idea of including Max, but the network wanted someone girls could identify with. She always seemed superfluous to writer Stan Berkowitz who said in an interview Terry could talk to Bruce about his dual identity issues, and the show already had a younger gateway character in the form of Terry's little brother. Berkowitz also said you can see what he thought of Max in the way Bruce Wayne treated her in "Where's Terry?". 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.

I don't know why it has taken me so long to comment on this one because it is one of my favorite series. It has very intriguing stories, awesome music, and a collection of some of the best villains ever, like Blight, Shriek, Inque and the Royal Flush Gang. But at the heart of the series is the relationship between Terry McGinnis and Bruce Wayne. Will Friedle and Kevin Conroy are excellent in their respective roles.
I said this in my review of "SubZero," and I'll say it again here. After the disappointing "Batman and Robin," WB needs to study these animated products and see just how Batman should be done. I would very much like to see "Batman Beyond" make it to the big screen in ANIMATED format. Until then, keep producing great episodes.
