DC Nation - Batman Beyond

As part of the ongoing celebration of Batman turning 75, DC Comics commissioned Darwyn Cooke to write a DC Nation short in the Batman Beyond Universe. Returning both Will Friedle and Kevin Conroy to voice two generations of Batman, the short features the Batcave infiltrated by a robotic Batman (H.A.R.D.A.C.?) in The New Adventures design taking on both Terry McGinnis (Friedle) and Bruce Wayne (Conroy).

Much like Bruce Timm's recent short, my only complaint with "Batman Beyond" is its length as the entire short is over far too quickly. But in this short period of time Cooke's tale delivers plenty of action along with an animated nod to Batman's history from the 60's Batman TV-show to Beware the Batman as we glimpse other robotic version of the Dark Knight ready to join the fray. Well done Mr. Cooke.
