No posts? Then I'll continue to provide the autism.
An average teenager for the most part, not being popular nor outsider. Has record and used to get into trouble before becoming Batman, former/delinquent with a heart of gold. His character is very expressive and quite honest (especially in compare to Bruce). Nowhere near smart, capable or experienced as Bruce and having both family and criminal past makes him unusual and unique pick for being Batman or even part of the (old) Batcrew which later being shat all over by Epilogue:"it's ok, guys, he's Bruce son after all! He meant to be Batman!" arghh
. Being lone teenager superhero gives him Spiderman feeling the good parts about it
which is nice and as far as filthy causaulfag in my defense, I just don't like capeshit, or anything in 3DPD drawing style
me know there aren't any/many lone teenage superheros in DC, they're part of team. And unlike the case with Miles Morals, Terry doesn't just immediately replace Bruce, but get to be mentored by him which is a good way to link between the new and old Batman and not more, let Batman Beyond be its own thing, goddammit!
and pave the way for the new one. Terry struggles to balance between his personal normal life to being batman and becoming a competent Batman are what makes his character so interesting, but sadly the show failed to handle those aspects properly mostly thanks to worst girl being attention whore who takes more screen time than what she deserves
. Although Terry doesn't kill anyone as true to Batman nature, at least purposely, he doesn't go out of his way to save anyone evil Terry did nothing wrong except cheating on Dana, pig
like Bruce would and one may say what do instead is far worse than murder, I mean think about what happened to Dr. Cuvier turned into a monster
and Bane' caretaker became in vegetable-like state as Bane
which is part of what made *Batman Beyond wonderfully gruesome and violent and also helps to differentiate between him and Bruce. I do wonder how come moralfag Bruce never addressed this issue deeply besides remark regarding Blight, but as I explained before, the writing sadly, wasn't consistent.
*But on the other hand, Batman Beyond doesn't have much of plethora of villains like BTAS to choose from so annihilating many of them was bad.
Sidenote: after worst girl showed up, I noticed the only guy friend of Terry, Jared, the black dude which actually appeared in the opening and was much more likeable character than Max, pretty much disappeared from the show and the last time he was shown, was in Armory episode where poorfag worst girl got jelly of him, lol. Jared actually said about her: "Sometimes she really ticks me off", he's officially the most relatable character in the show
. Great shame as I quite like him and he also blanched Terry small social circle. They sorta replaced with Howard which sucks.
It's a shame they didn't made a mini-movie about Terry' dark past that could also explain how Terry and Dana met and got together. While, the first part (dark past) isn't essential to the story, the latter (TerryXdanna relationship) is and to be fair if the useless Batman: Mask of the Phantasm yes, it was just a sappy random mafia and romance 50's movie drama for the first half and the second half had Joker saving it and reminding us it's Batman movie. Of course the so-called true and first love of Bruce was never mentioned in the original series and again until "Epilogue" to tie shit up in the most contrived and convoluted way, hurray for deep DCAU lore that makes total sense!
movie is allowed to be exist so should this.
All alone, bitter and grumpy old man as result of years of unstoppable batautism as all of his companions left him and both his company and Batman legacy were either ruined/discontinued. Thanks to Terry he manages to fix both and also return to his favorite activity, batautism, even if it's only the passive part of it. The mentor-disciple relationship between him and Terry is one the bases of the show and being one the best aspects of it. It really is enjoyable and interesting to see the contrast between Terry' and Bruce' personality and life experience, as well as the banter going between them.
