Monday Morning Cartoons

In a similar vein to yesterday's post, I've found myself illegally streaming episodes of Batman Beyond, a show I only caught fragments of as a child on the famed CW, back when they still called it WB.

Not heard of it? Anime-inspired cyberpunk Batman.

Do you need any more convincing?

A geriatric Bruce Wayne (pushing 70, I believe) conscripts a young man with a similar taste for vengeance to continue his legacy as Batman in the year 2039. Great premise, decent execution, diverting enough for a children's show and lots of juicy worldbuilding for continuity fans. Stockhard Channing as non-crippled Police Commissioner Barbara Gordon? Yes please. Hovercycle gangs wearing clown make-up and calling themselves, in a deliciously late 90s way, the Jokerz? Yes please. Giant snarling wolfhound stalking Wayne Manor named Ace? Yes, yes, please.

(Oh, before I forget, new content posted on - go meet Moira!)
