What’s Batman Beyond?
Batman Beyond is a teenage Batman-of-the-future, born on the Emmy Award winning animated series (1999-2001). Beyond only lasted on television for 56 episodes, three short seasons. But, the fresh and futuristic take on the Bat has lasted the test of nearly two decades at this point. Beyond’s success isn’t quite out of left field, though, as the animated series continued a story 50 years into the future from its critically acclaimed predecessor, Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1999).
During the time of the Beyond animated series and since, there has been an animated feature film, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, with the legendary Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) reprising his BTAS voice of Joker; several long running DC Comics series, and some great Beyond collectibles as well!
