Successors

So I was looking for a picture of Spider-Girl to go along with my previous blog entry and I found this. If you been living in a cave, the fellow in the Batsuit is Terry McGinnis, Bruce Wayne's offspring (long story) and successor to the Batman mantle. I like to think Terry and Mayday have a lot in common. Both are teenage heroes that have followed in ther parents footsteps and said parents have both been aprehensive about them continuing on in their costume identities at one point or another.

This looks like more of a versus pick than anything else. If these two did spar, I think the fight could go either way. Both were trained by two of the best heroes in the business. But like their parents, I'm pretty sure they'd end up working on the same side in a case or something. In fact, I'd love to see this team-up. Bruce Timm and Tom DeFalco need to talk.

Oh and you know that thing you do with the right clicking and saving with cool pics? Do that with this one.

Thanks. On a related note, I've been thinking about watching my Batman Beyond DVDs again.

Terry isn't Bruce's offspring, Batman once saved Terry from the "Jokerz Gang" and I don't know the full story

Actually, yes, Terry is the son of Bruce Wayne. Just watch the Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue."

Is this why Batman felt compelled to take Terry under his care?
How did Terry recieve the news?
What about Terry's little brother?

Since Warren McGuinnis' DNA was changed to that of Bruce Wayne's that would make Terry's little brother also the sun of Bruce.

At first, Terry was upset because he thought Bruce manipulated things to make Terry his son somehow. In reality, Bruce had nothing to do with it. Amanda Waller had Terry's dad's DNA altered. Bruce found this out eventually but he never told Terry out of respect for the man who raised Terry, Warren. In the end, Terry accepted that Bruce was his father.
