    Shit like this is why Bruce ended up alone with a cool dog and his memories when Wonder Woman was doing nothing but giving him the greenlight to go batty on her catty. Especially since Selena is just too much of a selfish bullshitter to ever stay on the side of justice for too long and Babs being alone with a hot billionaire scientist ninja detective for too long as the only woman he trusts to not only know this man's darkest secret but actively share in his passions would make tears cry down her leg nightly.

          NTA, but claiming that TDKR wasn't a major influence on Batman Beyond is the height of either stupidity or disingenuousness. Batman Beyond is basically a critique of some of the ideas in TDKR, namely that Batman could fix Gotham by just punching enough people. Superheroes failed in the DCAU, or at least the Justice League generation failed.

        Why'd the writers feel the need to do this? Batman didn't get injected with bat DNA to become a good Batman, so why does Terry need Bruce's biology to be a good Batman?

              It's hard to say back then in the lat 90s/early 00s, memes that caught on had had way more impact because they had to be shared much more irl. Saying Terry is shit on site redbit in 2024 doesn't imply anything other than site redbit doesn't like him. Saying Terry is shit at a comic con in 1999 doesn't give any clear indicator how far the feelings for it go, you either listen to them or don't but only in hindsight can you know if it was the right call.

              And all because Amanda Waller watched Batman comfort a dying reality-warper so she doesn't melt the brains of everybody in the city when she dies.

          True, besides Damian, Robin has always been "just some unrelated kid who Batman takes under his wing" so why this time when it's a unrelated kid in the far future there's a big issue? Because the kid takes the role of Batman?

      My headcanon had always been that Terry and Matt were adopted, which is why Warren had such a difficult time disciplining Terry since "he's not his real father". My headcanon was also that Terry was Selena's son that she tried to use to trap Bruce into a shotgun marriage, but he didn't call her bluff, so she abandoned him at a Catholic orphanage.

      This sounds like a good backstory for a villain, but not Terry. Just have him dye his hair black or some shit.

      Back to the first point though, the Arkham Knight game showed me that an evil Batman fighting a good Batman can make for a cool story. A "Bat-Fake" who was made to be a clone of Bruce in some bizarre way should really be its own standalone thing.

          Why not just have Terry's dad be the Batman clone? I would have did half and half by saying Terry's dad was a clone but instead of a vigilante, he became a cop or a fire fighter or something. It would have been ambiguous if the Bruce clone thing even worked, and if it did, it would have still been a question if the genes made the clone a super hero or if the guy just naturally gravitated towards heroics.

          There's a message in that. Nurture vs Nature vs Birthright and such. In that case, the episode would have been interesting as Terry would both be the son of Bruce, but it might not have mattered.

            Not sure if that would have worked, but yea, I think the main issue is how unclear the clone tech was. If I'm remembering the episode right, Terry mentions what Joker did, suggesting the project used the same thing as the chip that was put in Drake's neck. Of course, one would think the tech used on Terry's dad was more advanced, since it's sometime before Terry's conception, and obviously some years after Joker's death and the whole fiasco with Robin. Or hell, go for something vague like "your father now had a 50/50 chance of producing a kid who was biologically Bruce's" and that way, you keep things in the air if Terry is Bruce's or not. I know there's still the hair thing, but this shit is already defying logic in the first place, and not even the most ridiculous thing seen in the DCAU in terms of playing with DNA like its fricking Legos

    I didn't mind the reveal too much, but I won't deny that it could have been played out in possibly better ways. Like the injection wasn't 100% certain, and that there's still a chance for Terry to be Warren's kid, and then keeping the ending more or less the same with Terry deciding he doesn't care since Warren was the man who raised him, and he choose to become Batman of his own volition and not because of a possible "birthright"
    It was definitely a strange move, feeling like Bruce Timm had been playing the MGS games and thought "Oh cool, I want one of my characters to be a clone/son of someone" and just didn't think out the existential stuff nearly as much. And while the stuff with Ace was pretty endearing, it does feel like two episodes that got mashed together and used for a finale that barely has anything to do with the show it finaled for
