* AllMusicalsAreAdaptations: "Out of the Past" opened with Terry taking Bruce Wayne to a musical about... Batman. The sad part is that the idea for it came from the fact that someone [[RealLifeWritesThePlot actually proposed a Batman musical in real life.]]

This ActionSeries follows the adventures of teenager Terry [=McGinnis=] (voiced by Creator/WillFriedle), who lives in Gotham City about [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture forty-some years in the future]] of the ''Batman: The Animated Series'' continuity. {{Franchise/Batman}} no longer prowls the rooftops and streets, having hung up the cape and cowl once age finally caught up with him. Crime returns to overtake Gotham, this time in the form of [[{{Film/TheWarriors}} Warriors-style]] street gangs who base their identities around Batman's former archenemies. The most prominent of these groups, The Jokerz, have a chance encounter with Terry and chase him down to the outskirts of Wayne Manor. An aged and reclusive Bruce Wayne (still voiced by KevinConroy) comes to Terry's aid, but the fight takes its toll on Bruce. As Terry helps Bruce back into Wayne Manor, the teenager stumbles upon the Batcave and learns of Bruce's former superhero alter-ego.

*** Being voiced by Creator/CreeSummer just adds an extra layer to it.

* NotSoStoic: This trope is taken UpToEleven in "Eggbaby". It even gets to the point that normally-jaded Bruce Wayne reacts with shock when he hears the cooing of the animitronic egg shortly after Terry exits the Batmobile. -->'''Bruce:''' What's going on there? Is that a baby?\\

His flashback reminiscence about how he found the dog, and his obvious relief when Ace is brought home safe and sound, make it clear that he was more worried than he let Terry see.

* ShoutOut: To Manga/{{Akira}}, Film/BladeRunner, Film/TheMatrix, RockAndRule (!?), and many, many others. In an early episode Batman saves someone in a pose exactly like the cover of Amazing Fantasy 15 (Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}). In "Heroes", Batman becomes trapped beneath machinery (and frees himself by lifting the massive object) in a scene that is a direct reference to an iconic Spider-Man sequence, even down to the shape of the machinery trapping the character.

* WhoWouldWantToWatchUs: ''Batman: The Musical!'' That the scene was inspired by ''actual'' plans for a "Phantom Of The Opera"-style [[BatmanTheMusical Batman musical]] being kicked around at the time (it has yet to get off the ground) [[ReverseFunnyAneurysm makes it funnier]]. It is apt to say it would have been a ''TanzDerVampire''-style rock show, seeing as it was written by ''Tanz'' composer Jim Steinman.

The Gotham of the mid-twenty-first century has the look and feel of an archetypal CyberPunk setting, though some Noir remnants from the original series still show up. Gotham still has its old feel -- crowded, corrupt, and dirty as all hell -- but now some cars can fly, and that includes the Batmobile. Wayne-Powers Enterprises doesn't have the philanthropic ideals that existed when Bruce ran the company, and Derek Powers hates the interference in his less savory endeavours caused by the new Batman. His eventual transformation into the radioactive supervillain Blight (due to the actions of Batman) makes his hatred more personal.
