Watch Batman Beyond

Batman Beyond is an animated television series produced by Warner Bros. and DC Comics. This version of Batman takes place in a futuristic Gotham City with a brand new batman, 17-year-old Terry McGinnis. Terry is a high school student who is at odds with his scientist dad, Warren. While Terry has had his share of mischief-making, he is improving his ways and believes in fighting against those who are wrong and bringing criminals to justice. While Terry is the Batman here, Bruce Wayne is still around and plays an important role: he mentors the young and inexperienced Terry as he goes on to become a superhero.

Bruce Wayne had given up his role as Batman years ago after suffering a mild heart attack. Now very old, he lives as a recluse with only his dog, Ace, for company. The Batcave, which stores the new high-tech Batsuit, as well as those of Batgirl and Robin, has been shut down. Bruce and Terry meet when he helps Terry fight off the Jokerz, a group of gang members who style themselves after the Joker. Due to the struggle and his ailing heart, Bruce needs Terry's help to go back to his manor. There, Terry discovers the Batcave and Bruce's secret, only to be dismissed by a furious Bruce Wayne.

The climax to Terry's becoming Batman occurs when his dad is murdered by the Jokerz. The main culprit behind the murder turns out to be Derek Powers, the CEO of Wayne-Powers. He had forcefully merged the two companies and was creating secret chemical weapons, which Warren figured out working for the company. Bruce refuses to listen to Terry and bring back the Batman, so Terry takes matters into his own hands and steals the Batsuit in order to bring Powers down. Bruce does not support Terry and wants his equipment returned, but Terry is just as adamant himself. In time, he manages to convince Bruce that Gotham needs Batman and wins over him. Bruce finally allows Terry to take up his former role as Batman and offers to help Terry with his crime fighting expertise.
