The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #12

This volume of The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries comes to an end with Mystery, Inc. waking up in the future and meeting Batman Beyond's Batman fighting the Royal Flush Gang over classic Batman gadgets such as Batman's utility belt. At least that's what the group thinks is happening. It's a fun, if unlikely, team-up with the future Batman as confused by the sudden appearance the young detective as the gang themselves.

There are clues for what is really going on, as eventually Velma deduces they are all trapped in a simulation, but the explanation leaves a little be be desired given the accuracy of the Batman Beyond world. Obviously the creators had a fun adventure in mind, just not a great way to make it happen. Still, for fans of both Scooby-Doo! and Batman Beyond, the unexpected team-up is a fun way to wrap-up another team-up series.
