I think he knew too, but it's never shown that he knows.  That's what I meant.  And I don't know that Bruce treats Terry more like a son than Dick or Tim.  We never know what happened to Dick.
Dick is mentioned in an episode. He's been protecting Bludhaven though these years as Nightwing.

I think that would make Bruce proud.  Despite their difference, Dick is still fighting the good fight in the end, just like he knows Terry will.

It would be cool if Terry and Dick met. Too bad Batman Beyond is canceled.

Not canceled. Ended. Epilogue in JLU gave it a proper ending. meaning that it officially ended. Although that doesnt mean they cant fit anything in between Return of The Joker and Epilogue...

Personally, I want to see more of the Future JLU. I thought The call was an awesome episode.
That and one of Terry's funniest moments.
"How fast can this thing go?"
"Mach 5."
"Is that faster than a speeding bullet?"

Speaking of JLU and Future JLU...
Im just going to drop this here...
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Hey, Switching a bit here, I remember the purpose of Gotham knight, aside from making a small bridge story to Dark Knight, was to try different anime styles for him and then the one that works out the best would become the next animated batman movie or something.
Did they ever reveal which one was most popular? AKA which one won?

Personally, while they were all awesome, I liked Studio 4°C's Working Through Pain, and Madhouses Deadshot.

I don't even remember any such claims.

But well, the next animated Batman movie is coming out this July, Batman - Under the Red Hood. For the moment, it looks like DC is more focussing on in-house animation, while Marvel is experimenting with anime studios.

Speaking of DC's in-house movies, am I the only one who's annoyed by them switching voice actors all the time? Call me an elitist, but for me, every incarnation of Batman has to be Kevin Conroy. He has more experience with the character than all other voice actors and actors put together and he's ultra-popular with the fanbase, so why?

They've said TIME AND TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN that the only reason they're not sticking with Conroy/Hamill, is because they don't want people to think this is connected to the DCAU. They'll still be there in minor roles because they love the saga, like Conroy, who appeared in Batman: Brave and the Bold, in the episode "The Super Batman Of Planet X", playing the Batman of Zur Eh Arr. Plus, you can trust Bruce Greenwood. I've been following his work for years, he's one of my favorite actors. If there's anyone I ever imagined playing a seasoned and experienced Batman, it's him.

Related to that... sorry to burst your bubble, but the comic is being trusted to one of the worst teams of all time. Writer Adam Beechen (who wrote the horrible Countdown, the series so [tornado fang]ing awful it had to be almost completely retconned, along with The Batman, the only Batman show I truly disliked) and artist Ryan Benjamin (whose drawn facial expressions are always in the "OUTRAAAGEOUS!" territory, and whose style doesn't fit the Batman Beyond AT ALL). I don't want to get your hopes up, that's all. Maybe, just MAYBE this will turn out to be half good. But Dini was who made Terry awesome. And he's not involved.

In the first look for it I think. "the most popular one will be the face of the next animated something something"

Countdown to Final Crisis. One of the worst stories DC has ever shat out. And since it pretty much 90% contradicts with Final Crisis, it was mostly non-canon.

make a comic, (or series of) thats supposed to lead into another, and then have half of it be non canon anyway.

And kill off (or make them dissapear with some sort of event) whatever characters DC finds "useless" too. Remember the Teen Titans (read the goddamn comics before going off on this)?

Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Countdown to adventure was part of countdown to final crisis. And it was the only series he wrote by himself. Thus the reason I thought you where referring to that series in particular. As far as countdown goes, it made perfect sense in the context that it wasn't supposed to make sense because of it taking place on an alternate earth/earths. I thought it lead up to final crisis quite well. Then again ignore me, i'm a DC whore.

It didn't, actually.  Trust me, I'm a DC whore as well and I can tell you wholeheartedly that Countdown to Final Crisis was easily one of the worst series ever.  The ending of it makes absolutely no sense and contradicts Final Crisis itself.  Final Crisis itself is brilliant.  I love the way Grant Morrison writes the New Gods.  I have ever since the Rock of Ages JLA story arc.

I'm a gigantic DC whore, and Countdown to Final Crisis made no sense. Officially, this is what happened:

Grant Morrison thinks up Final Crisis, Didio accepts it. Morrison asks people not to use the New Gods in the next few years so he can make a real blast with his storyline.

...Didio, still mad that 52 didn't end up the way he wanted it to be (and was incredibly good), deems Countdown "52 done right", and makes it so it has a Death of the New Gods plot, along with tons of clusterfucks, and little to none Morrison involvement.

...it ends up in absolute [parasitic bomb], and most has to be retconned. Final Crisis is still ONE HELL OF A BOOK. One of the best comics I've ever read, and still the one comic I own which has post-it notes on every single page explaining interpretations of every single sign and event.

Makes me so sad that Beechen's in charge of the upcoming Beyond miniseries. All the guy knows is how to screw up a good series with potencial.

Dammit, this comic made me so nostalgic for more Beyond. I sure hope that when this miniseries is over, they continue the story with other, BETTER authors. I'd honestly like to see either Dini doing what he does best with his creations, or Morrison's imput in Earth 14. (the DCAU Earth)
