Characters From Alternate Continuities

Several characters featured outside of modern Batman canon are of note:

  • Batman (Terry McGinnis) is the lead character on the animated series Batman Beyond. Set in the near future of earth 12 one of the 52 parallel earths to the original earth 1, the series depicts the adventures of a new, younger Batman mentored by Bruce Wayne. Terry is always treated similarly to the way Bruce treated Dick Grayson and Tim Drake in this continuity. Bruce has a respect for him and has found him to be a worthy person to wear the mask and that he is the one that makes Batman a good person. In the Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue", it is revealed that Terry is the biological son of Bruce due to Amanda Waller's involvement in creating a new Dark Knight under Project Cadmus' final project, Project: Batman Beyond. In 2011 he enter the official DCU.

He trained young Bruce Wayne in the art of criminal detection and provided the young boy with his first costumed identity - Robin. Bruce helped his mentor try and stop the KKK in Detective Comics Annual in 1989. Harris is good in combat, claims to have a black belt and uses a gun.
  • Carrie Kelly: Carrie Kelly became the first female Robin (chronologically though not canonically) in 1986's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. In Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again, the follow-up to DKR, Carrie is called Catgirl, as a homage to Catwoman.
  • Helena Wayne: Pre-Crisis, the Huntress was Helena Wayne, daughter to Earth-Two's Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle (Catwoman). The modern Huntress (Helena Bertinelli) has no biological relations to Catwoman or Batman.

    There are characters which are continually creating collisions and nodes for themselves in dramas which nobody is prepared to act with them. Their susceptibilities will clash against objects that remain innocently quiet.

    I alternate between reading cook books and reading diet books.
