Over a base formed by imposing buildings with sinuous angles, emulating the dystopic futuristic megalopolis Neo-Gotham, its dark knight protector floats propelled by the flames from his boosters on his feet, nimbly directing his flight with his gliding bat wings spread beneath his arms. Using a high technology costume that, besides allowing him to fly, also gives him superhuman strength, agility, and endurance, adding to his guidance and training with his predecessor and mentor, the new Dark Knight wages his own crusade against evil, facing his own archenemies rogues gallery. Iron Studios proudly present their statue “Batman Beyond – DC Comics – Art Scale 1/10”, with the futuristic version of the hero created by Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, and Alan Burnett in the iconic animated series created by The WB Television Network in 1999.
In the year 2039, an old Bruce Wayne decides to retire from his vigilante career as Batman after he suffers a heart attack that forces him to betray his principles. In a new city now called Neo-Gotham, formed by giant skyscrapers and flying vehicles, a young and athletic student named Terry McGinnis, seeking revenge for the death of his father, becomes an ally of the elderly Wayne. Taking on the identity of the Dark Knight and using a technological costume, Terry continues the battle against crime, trained by Bruce. His biggest initial enemy is Derek Powers, a relentless billionaire that took over Wayne Industries and accidentally transformed into a radioactive monster called Blight, responsible for the death of Warren McGinnis, Terry’s father.
Later, in the DC Animated Universe, it’s revealed that Terry was part of an illegal secret project by Amanda Waller, using the technology from Project Cadmus to ensure that Batman would have a successor. Using a DNA sample from Batman, Amanda found a young couple with nearly identical features to Bruce’s parents. In an alleged flu vaccine inoculation, Warren received a nanotechnology solution that replaced his reproductive DNA with Bruce Wayne’s. A year later, Terry McGinnis was born as the genetic son of Mary and Bruce. Originally part of the DC Animated Universe, the success of Batman Beyond guaranteed the presence of Terry McGinnis in the comic books as part of a possible future of the DC multiverse
