Batman isn't going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home. Written by

Based on the DC comic book of the same name that debuted in 1955. Each issue of the comic book featured two characters or groups teaming up to fight a stronger villain; unlike the TV series, Batman did not become a permanent fixture of the publication until 1960, and then only until 1983. The initial run of the publication was from 1955 to 1983, but was revived (without Batman as a regular character) from 1991 to 1999, and again from 2007 to the present. See more »
Grab a healthy snack and get ready to enjoy a lighter and zanier Batman.
There are a few things that set this show apart from prior shows & cartoons: The show manages to balance a "fun" atmosphere without becoming campy, its often in the first-person narrative (Batman's), and the focus is exclusively on Batman in-costume.
In short, this is a character that enjoys what he does and whatever personal life he has is besides the point.
If you're looking for an operatic interpretation of Batman then prepare to be disappointed. However, if you're a fan of the character then this is a perfectly reasonable way to introduce your children to a beloved character.
