Batman is arguably the best superhero of all time, and he's been shown in too many genres and styles to name over his many years on page and on screen. Cyberpunk is a beloved sub-genre of science fiction, which blends the future with the past in very creative ways. So what do you get when you mix the two? Batman Beyond, the best iteration of Batman that exists. Not only do you get two different people as Batman, an older Bruce Wayne and his protégé Terry McGinnis, but you get to see them learn to work as a team while they take on new and old villains, alike.

Even the most jaded Batman fans will find themselves surprised by this series. The new gadgets are amazing, the new Batsuit is stylish and cool, and its twists on the classic Batman tropes are incredibly clever. So, if you like your Batman minimalist, focused, and ready to dispense justice, Batman Beyond is the best version of Batman you'll find. For every Blade Runner, Shadowrun, and Minority Report fan out there... Batman Beyond is the best Batman, the one you always wanted. Keep reading below to see why.
