Dwayne McDuffie confirms the setting to be 15 years after the end of Batman Beyond (1999), which. Bruce W. Timm gives this as 50 (not 40 as some claimed) years in the future from when the audience is watching it. See more »


Amanda Waller: He sat with her until her time came. That's the Bruce Wayne I came to know over the years.
Terry McGinnis: You think he showed mercy? Maybe. But more likely he'd somehow already deduced that Ace really wasn't going to hurt anyone.
Amanda Waller: He always was two steps ahead of everybody.
Terry McGinnis: That's right. Even when it looks like your call, it isn't. Think about it. Bruce wanted a successor, another Batman. He planned it all from the beginning. I never had a chance.
Amanda Waller: Honey, Bruce didn't overwrite your DNA with his. I did.
Terry McGinnis: How? ...

Not a JL episode, good moments for Batman, but not for Batman Beyond
31 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode marks the finale of the second season of the Justice League Unlimited series...however, it really has nothing to do with the circumstances of the actual series. Rather, it serves as a finale of sorts to Batman Beyond, since the series was never picked up for another season and therefore didn't have a sense of closure. That tying up of loose ends is offered here, but the result ends up being less than decent.

The episode does pay a nice homage to Bruce Wayne/Batman in showing him perform a heroic deed regarding one of the members of the Royal Flush Gang: Ace. It is also nice to return to the Batman Beyond world after a long hiatus. However, how the story serves to end the adventure of Terry McGinnis is nothing short of underwhelming and even insulting. In a nutshell, Terry is revealed to be a genetic son of Bruce Wayne himself because of a genetic project undertaken by Amanda Waller, the individual Terry confronts about his past.

This serves to erase the individual toughness and mental fortitude that Terry displayed throughout the Batman Beyond series as being nothing less than mere genetics. Oh yes, Amanda tries to off-highhandedly mention that he isn't "completely" like Bruce, and that she didn't pull the trigger on his parents, but the road was basically set so that when the time came, he would have the chance of being Batman. Who can tell whether the decisions he made were a product of himself or his genetics? What a load.

DCAU, you couldn't have dragged the carpet out from under an excellent series more than with this episode. Definitely not your best effort.
