Really? I always liked the idea of Bruce eventually having second thoughts about quitting, and trying to get back in the game, only failing due to his heart.
but when you mention it- We were never told if he knew of his heart condition prior to his heart attack... So its possible he already knew.
...and funny how, even after all that, Bruce still picked up the cowl a few time to knock some heads. Including Terry's.
And Bruce and Clark are best friends. Clark has quite alot of friends, from Diana to Jimmy Olsen, Perry White... But nobody he trusts with both his life and death. They may not hang out civily, and have a few arguments now and then. But I don't think there's anyone Clark trusts more in the world, in ANYTHING at all, than Bruce.
well of course, I never said he didn't. Bruce picking up the cowl was in the comics right? I know I saw an image of Terry fighting old bruce dressed as Batman.
Though in the series, he donned the Exo suit and kicked Inque around a bit.
this first clip has GOT to be my FAVORITE moment in the whole series, followed closely by Freezes return.Posted on: May 28, 2010, 10:05:00 PM
Also, it's the fact that he winds up a bitter, lonely old man why I love the show so much. To me, it represents one of the truest outcomes of what would happen to Bruce Wayne.
Very true, Very true. Timm brought that up in the first DVD. how Bruce dedicated his life to stopping crime, and what did it bring him?
Gotham is STILL filled with Crime, and hes quote- "A bitter old man in a giant mausoleum with a dog as his only companion"
And Yet, Terry fires him up again, warming up Bruces bitter heart. Batmand Beyond Bruce smiles far more often than he did when he was younger in the DCAU.
I think that Old old bruce in Epilogue- was probbaly based on- at least partly, on Old Bruces original concept, where he was even OLDER, bald, had scars, and a blind eye.
or maybe its just me. But they did make a minor flub in epilogue, replacing the original batsuit in the background with the beyond one, while the last capsule was I think empty.
