Batman Beyond (2015)
At last, Batman Beyond gets his own ongoing series in THE definitive future of the DCU! But this isn't the Beyond you think you know! With the Justice League missing and without Bruce to guide him, this new Batman will need to explore this bizarre world on his own, while fighting to raise humanity from an opponent that's already won. The heroes Batman knew have failed, the world he knew has been turned on its head, and every step he takes will lead him either toward finding home--or further down the road of disaster!
Thirty-five years in the future, Batman's gotten himself caught in a P.O.W. camp where the enemy refuses to give up trying to crack the only "data source" he can't access--the human mind! And this foe doesn't care how many people he has to burn through to get there, including original Batgirl, Barbara Gordon! To make his great escape, Batman will have to take down both his greatest hero and a traitor to humanity! Featuring the DC Universe debut of Batman Beyond villain Inque!

Be onthe lookout for some fan favorite characters coming out of the woodwork to stand in humanity's last defense and to join Batman Beyond in the DCU!
His suit's torn to shreds, his city's dying, and he's been up to his neck in Inque and cyborgs since he got thrown into this hellish future! But he's done being told he's not Batman, and he's taking the fight to the moon for humanity's final showdown with Brother Eye! This is it-the conclusion to the struggle started way back in FUTURES END #0!
The sun rises on a new day in BATMAN BEYOND! With the threat of Brother Eye finally gone, Tim Drake is a man lost in time and without a mission. But now that he finally has the opportunity to explore this new Gotham City, he may find it just as dark as ever beneath its shiny new surface. And what Justice League secret does Matt McGinnis think will be unlocked with Green Lantern's severed hand? Guest artist and FUTURES END veteran Stephen Thompson kicks things off in this prologue to 'City of Yesterday'!
No good deed goes unpunished! Freeing the world from Brother Eye was only the beginning-with Neo-Gotham now standing as the only stable society in the known world, thousands of refugees have fled their war-torn cities to come knocking at the gates. But when the mayor of Neo-Gotham claims his city can't support the whole world, the fate of these people will rest on Batman's shoulders.
While the world flocks to Neo-Gotham, Batman tracks Terry's brother, Matt, to the former City of Tomorrow: Metropolis! But they both get more than they bargained for when they meet the new muscle in town. Check out the DC Universe debut of the Splicers, previously seen in the Batman Beyond animated TV series!

Growing tensions between the citizens and refugees of Neo-Gotham have finally erupted into full-on revolt! The city's in disarray and Batman's fighting for his life-not just against the Splicers of Metropolis, but against the Justice League itself! A new power and a new ally will be key if Batman is to have any hope of leading both cities to the freedom they seek in this new world.
