    Batman 4. 0 (Terry McGinnis)
Click for Civilian Appearance 

The Batman of the year 2027 after Tim Drake is killed. He's also Bruce's son, though he's not aware of that or at least pretends to.

  • The Atoner: Terry believes his time as Batman makes up in some small part for all the trouble he caused as a delinquent.
  • Byronic Hero: Terry is physically attractive. He is motivated to become Batman to seek justice against his stepfather's murderers. He remains as Batman to make up for his delinquent past. As Batman he is intelligent, perceptive, cunning and adaptable in situations.
  • Cool Car: His Batmobile flies.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Terry's much more chatty than Bruce.
  • Determinator: Has endured beat-downs just as bad as, if not worse, than his father Bruce. He once jumped up to become Batman with four cracked ribs.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: While not on the level of Bruce, he still has decent agility and is a good street-fighter without the Bat-suit, putting up a good fight against thugs before he ever had access to the Beyond Batsuit. With the Beyond Bat-suit, the criminals are in for a futuristic nightmare.
  • Good Is Not Soft: While he's much nicer than his father, he makes up for it by being much less ready to rescue villains from their own fate.
  • Nice Guy: He's more than willing to fight against the Jokerz to defend people, and that's before he became Batman. Also, stands up to bullies who pick on others at school.
  • Powered Armor: The high-tech Batsuit was developed to compensate for Bruce's advancing age, and eventually passed on to Terry when he became Gotham's new savior.
    • Battle Boomerang: Batarangs in different varieties: Dispensable, Electric, Explosive, and batarangs specially designed for restraining and/or reeling in.
    • Comm Links: Allowed Terry to keep in constant contact with Bruce and Max at the Batcave.
    • Invisibility Cloak: Built-in cloaking device that enables almost complete camouflage. Its only weakness is that he becomes visible if UV light is shined on him.
    • Rocket Boots: Enabling thrust for Flight.
    • Super Toughness: The suit granted significant resistance to water, electricity, heat and radiation.
    • Super Senses: Enhanced visual assistance that allowed him to see in the dark. The visor could also serve as digital binoculars and an infrared filter. Visual from the Batsuit could be fed back to the main computer in the Batcave; it could also receive visual from the main computer, allowing for superior tactical planning.
    • Super Strength: The Batsuit's neuromuscular amplification gave Terry superhuman strength, agility, and endurance by amplifying his physical abilities at least tenfold.
  • Official Couple: With Dana Tan.
  • Pragmatic Adaptation: Unlike what they did in JLU, here Terry's mom was an old flame of Bruce's. The two broke up after Jason was killed and she gave birth to Terry in 2007.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: Terry likes to talk when he's kicking your ass.

Dana Tan is Terry's long-time girlfriend, and later fiancée.

Click for Civilian Look 

    Batgirl Beyond (Nissa/Sara Diggle)
Click for Civilian Look 
The daughter of John Diggle and Lyla Michaels, she took the mantle of Gotham's old protector Batgirl to honor her father.
  • Action Girl: Trained by her father so one day she could take the crimefighting crusade one day.
  • Affirmative Action Legacy: A half-white half-black woman taking the mantle of a (mostly) white woman legacy.
  • Belated Backstory: After a lot of time of being present, but hardly anything known about her, her backstory was finally revealed in a Batcave File after four years in real time.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father John and brother John Jr. were killed in a car accident while looking for her.
  • Honorary Uncle: Her godfather Oliver Queen tried to pick her up after the death of her father and brother, but unfortunately, she had already left for Gotham.
  • Legacy Character: Sixth person to take the mantle of Batgirl.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother Lyla Michaels went missing, forcing her family to move from Star City to National City.

    Blight (Derek Powers)
Click for Civilian Look 

The corrupt CEO and co-owner of Wayne-Powers Enterprises. After being exposed to his own nerve gas, he is treated with high levels of radiation. He glows green in his natural form, so he must wear an artificial skin that only lasts temporarily and must be regularly replaced.

  • But to Me, It Was Tuesday: Just like in the series, ordering Warren's death doesn't even faze him nor does he bother to remember about it when questioned by Batman.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Not only he amorally buys companies to expand his, he also makes biological weapons.
  • Dem Bones: The radiation makes him look like a glowing skeleton.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: The radioactive treatment given to him for the exposure to his own mutagenic nerve gas leaves Derek Powers looking like a pitch-black skeleton surrounded by fluorescent green tissue.
  • Light Is Not Good: He emits a bright radioactive green glow. This contrasts with Batman, who is dark and can even turn invisible.
  • Mutant: One of the side effects of the nerve gas he developed (and got exposed to) was that it was mutagenic and influenced by its environment. It served as the catalyst with its own "cure" to turn him to the walking meltdown.
  • Sickly Green Glow: His skeleton glows green to represent the radiation coursing through his body.
  • The Sociopath: Has been showing sociopathic tendencies since he was a teenager, and is ruthless, remorseless and sees people as merely means to an end.

The result of a clandestine mutagenic experiment, Inque is a treacherous shape-shifting femme fatale, and foe to Batman Beyond.

  • Combat Tentacles: One of her main combat tactics is to use her transformed arms as whips.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: She has a "human" form that imitates her original human body, though she can only get the shape right, not the color. Her regular form is much more simplistic, humanoid with an oval-shaped head with a single white spot on it for an eye.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Her inky liquid form is vulnerable to water. Just some water can dilute her enough so that she can't form a solid shape, but it doesn't permanently kill her either, since she's usually able to eventually pull herself together from being flushed.

    Willie Watt

    Shriek (Walter Shreeve)
Click for Civilian Look 

  • Clothes Make the Superman: His sound suit.
  • Conspicuously Selective Perception: Variant on ignoring sounds not made by the protagonist: his suit's abilities include nullifying sound in the surrounding area. When Batman turns on the machines in a factory in order to mask his own movements, Shriek uses his suit to block out the sounds, followed by another adjustment so that he can still hear Batman moving around.
  • Make Some Noise: His suit's main offensive utility is sound blasts that can shatter concrete. His fights with Batman can rack up impressive levels of collateral damage.

    Spellbinder (Dr. Ira Billings)
Click for Civilian Look 

  • Faceless Eye: His favorite gizmo.
  • G-Rated Drug: Opens a VR arcade, where people can experience their greatest fantasies. However, he deliberately made the effect addictive. As soon as people leave VR, they experience intense withdrawal symptoms. He uses this to get people to steal for him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: His speciality. His training as a psychologist and his advanced technology gives him an edge in this, and all of his evil plans involve using or brainwashing innocent people to get them to steal for him or, in the case of Barbara Gordon, to kill Batman for him.
  • Mind-Control Device: His handheld Evil Eye.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: His costume is mostly orange.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He's usually deadpan and snarky while he psychologically destroys his enemies.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He has no fighting skills, but proves a formidable opponent to Batman because of his ability to produce powerful illusions.

    Mutant Leader

    Rewire (Davis Dusk)
Click for Civilian Look 

  • Alliterative Name: Davis Dusk
  • Shock and Awe: Rewire has the ability to absorb, generate and project volumes of electrical energy of an extremely high voltage. He increases his absorbing abilities through a mixture of Venom and Joker toxin.

    Ratboy (Patrick Fitz)
Click for Civilian Look 

    Big Time (Charlie Bigelow)

  • Body Horror: He becomes a deformed hulk in his transformation into Big Time with unevenly sized appendages.
  • Evil Former Friend: He starts out as a shady old friend of Terry's and becomes a true villain when he turns into Big Time.
  • Genius Bruiser: Maybe "genius" is the wrong word, but he's certainly more clever than the brute he resembles.
  • Large and in Charge: After his mutation, he's a hulking monster.
  • Super Serum: His transformation is the result of a growth steroid for plants. Apparently learning from his example, said serum is used on dogs in another episode.

    Rebel One (Zhora Mercer)
Click for Civilian Look 

Supporting Characters

    Selina Wayne

  • Happily Married: Subverted. After Tim Drake's death her marriage with Bruce was strained, Selina gave him distance for a time until she decided that she could not risk losing her husband too and felt the need to hold an intervention, fearing Bruce was dangerously close to taking his own life. Bruce did not agree with Selina's insinuations that he would take a life, even his own, after seeing what happened to his parents as a child.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Her stepson Tim Drake died in 2027.
  • Silver Vixen: She has aged much gracefully than Bruce, that's for certain.

  • BFG: He carries a machine gun.
  • Cigar Chomper: He seems to have taken a liking for the things.
  • Eye Scream: He's rocking a cybernetic left eye in 2027.

    Damian Al Ghul

  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He later gains a scar on his left eye.
  • I Have No Son!: After Tim's death, the person who once hate him but had grown to respect, Damian went on a killing spree among the Joker's followers: the gang known as Jokerz. When Bruce learned of this, he disowned his son, leaving Damian to return to his mother's embrace as a member of the League of Assassins.
  • He's All Grown Up: He wasn't bad looking as a kid, but now it's clear he inherited his parents' good looks.

    Warren McGinnis

  • Disappeared Dad: For Terry and Matt.
  • Good Parents: He treated Terry like his true son, and Terry felt the same way.
  • Nice Guy: He was a hard-working person and a loving husband and father. He agreed to work for Wayne Enterprises without much issue so he could provide for his family.
  • Second Love: He became this for Julie Madison.

    Julie Madison-McGinnis

  • Composite Character: She's combined with Mary McGinnis and Rachel Dawes as Bruce's old flame and Terry's mother.

  • Glamorous Single Mother: Not at first, but with some help from Bruce she can now dedicate herself once more to her career on the arts.
