Here's something I've often wondered. I love Terry, I do, but why do you have him as opposed to Damian? Dami would be the perfect fit for the little baby brother in the family because he IS. Though he'd be an evil little bugger XD Perhaps an addition of him? I dunno I assume you just dislike him and don't want to use him and you won't do so just because I asked XD I'm just asking anyway.
When "Batman and Sons" started, Damian hadn't even been introduced.
He has been mentioned in this series at least once, when Alfred mentions that Talia has been on that phone, seeking child support for "their genetically perfect child" and Batman refusing to speak to her without DNA evidence.
The boys babysitting their newest little brother (as one who could give Terry lessons in how to be a spoiled little so and so, though without Terry's innate charm) could be fun.
Of course, TwinEnigma has done a little homage which might help you.
Really? Wow this must be older than I thought XD Well okay then that makes sense. I'm just so used to Damian existing I forget there was a time when he didn't. lol
OH I REMEMBER THAT.
That would be so sweet and I would love it and laugh so hard. And thank you for the link.
Also, Terry isn't biologically Bruce's is he? I didn't watch a whole lot of that cartoon so I don't know but I do know he has a mom, brother and a dad that got blown up so when he started to be Batman he was living with his mom and brother and feeling all guilty and junk. Maybe it happened later in the series and it turns out he WAS Bruce and Selina's kid but I have no idea. Clarify please?
Deep breath.... In the cartoon it was eventually revealed (in the JLU episode "Epilog") that Terry was, unknown to Terry and even his mother, Bruce's son. It was all part of a long term plan of Amanda Waller, to ensure that there would be more Batman's in the world. Rather than use Dick Grayson or Tim Drake, she took the rather bizarre idea of using some of Bruce's DNA (from blood samples left behind at fight scenes etc) and nanotech to create an method whereby certain men could have their own reproductive DNA over-written, so though they would be having sex with their wives, the sperm would be Bruce Wayne's. That way all the children of all these people would be Bruce Waynes offspring.
Terry's Dad was one guinea-pig which means Terry (and his brother Matt) are reallt Bruce Wayne's kids. Waller then planned on having the parents murdered in order to motivate the kids the right way, but the assassin she chose to do it (Phantasm, as it turns out an old girlfriend of Bruce Wayne) refused to do it, and Waller realised that if she did, she'd be a REAL monster (not that what she'd done already made her a NICE person) and dissolved the program. Terry's Dad being killed was nothing to do with Waller, but it did provide Terry with something like the same motivating incident that Bruce had had.
Whew, hope that made sense.
(Oh and in the current "Batman Beyond" comics, it's revealed that Waller instead mass produced clones of Dick Grayson and one of them went insane and became "Hush Beyond", but the less said about THAT the better IMHO)
Jesus XD Okay good to know, thank you very much. That makes sense actually. Twisted sense. Like what guy would want to have Bruce Wayne's sperm anyway XD If they want kids they probably want their OWN, right? And then at the same time, even though the DNA is Bruce Wayne's, it's still sort of their sperm so it's still their kid and....
Ah screw it. I understand but I'm making it more complicated than it ever needs to be.
She was still alive at the time of Batman Beyond, and was still one rather scary lady, and NOT one youd want to cross. The thing is, she did it because she admired Batman more than pretty much any person EVER. His commitment to his mission, regardless of the cost, was unequalled by anyone she'd ever met, and she didn't want there to be a world without a Batman. (And least realised that she had missed the point of Batman in terms of her clinical plan to "create" new ones)
She notes to Terry that whilst he doesn't have Bruce's superb intellect, he has the same heart, the same commitment to do the right thing and that'll stand him in good stead (Of course, that's sort of dismissive about Bruce's adopted children who shared much the same mindset (Tim was out of the picture for various reasons, but Dick was, presumably, still around)
