There’s Finally a Robin Beyond!
For awhile now, DC Comics has been continuing the saga of Batman Beyond in comic book form. The cartoon is long gone, but people love Batman Beyond, so it’s still going.
And at long last, we have a Robin Beyond!
Unfortunately, Robin Beyond is not Maxine Gibson, which would have been awesome. Instead, Robin Beyond is Terry’s younger brother, Matt. He’s a bit older now and he joins into the fight to help Terry when he’s overwhelmed. He first suited up as Robin a couple issues ago, using an old costume from the Batcave. But in the latest issue, Batman Beyond #22, Bruce Wayne built him a better, more official costume.
Good for him. As longtime readers of this blog are aware, I’m a huge Robin fan, and this is a pretty cool development. I’m not so much of a fan that I’m going to start reading the Batman Beyond comic. I don’t care that much. I just wanted to note this cool development.
And it is pretty damn cool! Though, again, I would have preferred if it was Max.
