    Dick Grayson 

  • Alternate Self: He gets a glimpse of his alternate self in the Justice Lords universe, where he's Happily Married with Barbara and has a son.
  • Badass in Distress: Gets captured by Dusk as a hostage in exchange for getting access to the Justice Lords timeline.
  • Big Brother Mentor: He shows a lot of concern for Terry's well-being.
  • Dating Catwoman: Literally. He's been sleeping with the Beyondverse's Catwoman.
  • Foil: As a mentor to Terry. In contrast to the cold and demanding Bruce, Dick is considerably warmer, and advises Terry to make time for his personal life.
  • Eyepatch of Power: His lack of depth perception has hardly affected his aim with batarangs.
  • Handicapped Badass: Despite having a bullet lodged near his spine, he seems perfectly capable of going out into the field.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the penultimate issue, he pulls a Taking You with Me on Davis Dusk to save Terry and Babs. His heart stops temporarily, but he wakes back up and survives the encounter.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his gruff exterior, he's surprisingly friendly to most people, other than Bruce.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: He's a bitter old man, but he quickly throws himself back into the crimefighting business upon meeting Terry.
  • Made of Iron: Already an old man with a bullet near his spine, he gets a lethal shock that stops his heart... and survives, with little repercussion.
  • Older Than They Look: Would be in his mid-late sixties by this point, but looks more like he's in his late fifties. He's probably aged the best out of the Batfamily.
  • Rage Against the Mentor: Happened a lot time ago, with Bruce. Dick is still bitter towards him.
  • Working with the Ex: With Commissioner Gordon, although it's been a good 50 years since they last spoke. note 

    The Joker King 
Spoiler Alias: Douglas Tan

  • Ax-Crazy: Just like his idol. The main highlights of his lack of sanity are trying to organize a mass suicide bombing and also slaughter his family For the Evulz.
  • Aloof Big Brother: Bordering on The Sociopath, until it's discovered there's a very good reason why he's so quiet.
  • Arc Villain: For Joker Night.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He always wanted to be Joker. Well...
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Subverted. He wanted to destroy Gotham and kill his family. He only mostly won. Yes Gotham is in tatters but his family is alive albeit traumatized.
  • Big Brother Bully: His obsession with The Joker started young, but he didn't just torment Dana - he tormented everyone. In the present day, he's brusque to the point of harsh to Dana.
  • Black Sheep: He is alienated from his family because of his obsession with the Joker.
  • Bomb Throwing Anarchist: What he drugs the Jokerz to do. Suicidally.
  • Cain and Abel: Zigzagged. He wanted to kill his dad first. However, Dana demanded him to kill her first. Doug puts the gun down and asks if she is serious. He puts the gun back up because he was just checking if she really meant it.
  • Dark Messiah: How he sees himself. He brings the scattered Jokerz together with the express purpose of murdering as many people as possible, and his charisma gets them ready to sacrifice themselves to do so. Charisma and a lot of mind control serum secretly sprayed from the trees.
  • Falsely Reformed Villain: Douglas was sent away to Juvie, and later prison in hopes of rehabilitating him. Instead, he came back with a greater vision - unifying The Jokerz under one, psychotic banner.
  • For the Evulz: That's how the Joker rolls, so
  • Go Out with a Smile: Because he won. Or so he thought.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: In a stark contrast with the first Joker, The Joker King's outfit consists of a leather jacket and matching pants, a shredded wife-beater, and...creative use of facepaint.
  • Insane Equals Violent: He was always violent. It just got worse after he returned from jail.
  • Irony: Bruce Wayne was dying and needed a liver transplant. Joker King died and thus didn't need his liver anymore. Bruce even lampshades that the Joker would have found this hilarious.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Before he faces Batman, he kills his cellmate. No one sheds a tear since he was just a follower who never showed any redeeming traits.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Spends most of Joker Night out of the action but with a good front row seat for the carnage the Jokerz pull off in his name. He only steps into action to kill his family near the end.
  • Pater Familicide: Inverted. He's the son and he wants to wipe out his entire family.
  • The Sociopath: Every single horrific act he does is For the Evulz, especially coupled with his Ax-Crazy plan.
  • Straw Nihilist: Has a serious obsession with the original Joker but believes that he didn't go far enough, using Nihilism as a means to an end instead of just For the Evulz.
  • Would Hit a Girl: When he heads to Gotham General to murder his father, Dana steps in front of his gun. After a half-hearted attempt to get her to move, he simply shrugs and moves to shoot her too.

Spoiler Alias: Jake Chill

Terry's counterpart in the Justice Lords timeline.
  • In Spite of a Nail: He winds up becoming the Batman Beyond of the Justice Lords universe (under the tutelage of Dick Grayson and Terry from the main universe himself) not unlike his counterpart.

    The Flash (Danica Williams) 

    Catwoman (??? Black) 
  • Enemy Mine: Much like her predecessor she winds up helping Batman and company in a number of crises, like during Hush Beyond's attempt to nuke the city and Joker Night.
  • Legacy Character: She's the daughter of Danton Black, the civilian identity of Multiplex, a villain in Firestorm's rogues gallery, as well as the successor to Selina Kyle as Catwoman.
  • Me's a Crowd: Can split up into 9 identical copies.

    Batgirl (Nissa) 
A high school student who takes on the title of the Bat to combat crime in where she resides in Gotham.
  • Ambiguously Brown: It's not clear what her ethnicity is, though she has been confirmed as being a person of color.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: She became Batwoman because she became frustrated with the police's inability to keep the less fortunate safe from crime, contrasting with the fact that Barbara was the daughter of the city's own police commissioner.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She only appears in one issue of 2.0. She has another appearance in the 2016 run (despite that being a different continuity) and has never been mentioned again, not even when Terry is in dire need of allies.

How well does it match the trope?
