Top 20 Worst Episodes of Batman Beyond

by Zabon | created - 18 Jul 2012 | updated - 18 Jul 2012 | Public

As I previously listed 30 episodes of Batman Beyond that stood out quite well amongst the 52, these would be my picks for the bottom half of episodes from the series. Of the 52 aired episodes, I've meticulously nitpicked the 20 that I've found to be lacking in some way or form. For example, those driven by a romantic angle or a rather comical intrigue are some of the least enjoyable in this series. I've found "sentries of the last cosmos" to be the absolute worst, but I've gone down the list in respective order following this entry. Most of the ones I've listed here greatly lack moral complexity and aren't as compelling as the counterpart list I've created prior.
