When Terry lists possible explanations for the Joker's return, he mentions being "placed in suspended animation due to floating around in a block of ice". This is a reference to the Marvel Comics character Captain America, who was found floating in ice by the Avengers in the '60s. See more »

He's got us running around, ripping a bunch of geek junk, but no cash! He won't tell us what his plan is, if he even has one! I-want-out!
If you insist.
[He raises a gun. The Jokerz gasp]
Hey, man, take it easy... I-I was just kiddin'!
[Joker pulls the trigger, and everyone jumps. A BANG flag comes out of the gun]

When I bought the unedited version of this movie on DVD, I had never watched Batman Beyond in my life, so I knew nothing about the storyline. I wasn't even sure about buying the movie before having seen it, but I am a great fan of Mark Hamill's Joker, so I was sure that even if the movie sucked, I would at least like the Joker.
What I found was a great bit of animation with a surprisingly awesome storyline. I was expecting the comic book cliche of a clone replacement, but the fresh twist had me guessing all the way through. And I was right about loving the Joker, he was still as great as he always was.
If you haven't seen it yet, don't wait. It won't disappoint you.
