Batman Beyond: Legends of a Dark Knight by phil-cho Batman Beyond: Legends of a Dark Knight by phil-cho
I've been doing Bat-family illustrations every summer so far - I figured it was time to do one again, only this time with the Beyonders.

Why "Legends of a Dark Knight" instead of "the Dark Knight"? Well, I figured the title of THE Dark Knight belongs only to Bruce, and everyone else who came after are only considered other Dark Knights. In this case, this Dark Knight is Terry. How many times did I type Dark Knight?

Anyway, the only original design here is Robin, but it's actually just a tweak from older "Robin Beyond" designs I made way back when. Only this time, I felt okay with taking out red altogether since Terry has that covered. Who's the under the Robin suit? I still don't know, but my best guess is Matt, Terry's brother. It could just be a new character altogether, but come on...everyone wants Matt to get in on the crime fighting action right?

As for Batgirl, I won't spoil who it is! You can read the latest Batman Beyond comics on comixology to find out who it is, they're like $1 for each issue. I had no idea this was happening, but you guys should definitely check it out. Props to Annie Wu for making such a bad ass Batgirl design!!

Oh also, this should go without saying by now, but this is just fan art. Could make a pretty awesome show, movie, comic, or video game though. :) As much as I liked Terry's high school days as Batman, I'm a little more interested in seeing him in his prime, so like late 20s, early 30s?

Wait a heck....

So, a Batman Beyond comic is still on-going, you mean, the series (after the tv-show) is still expanding...!? With a Batgirl Beyond, too? O_O

Also, I always thought Max would be a good Batgirl,

I wish! It's a new character named Nissa Fox (related to Lucius I think).

well it makes sense that terry's younger brother is robin, (i don't know if this happened in the comics but it did in the tv show so SPOILER ALERT) because he has bruce's genes in him

Is the Robin design from the comics?
phil-cho Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Nope, still no Robin in Batman Beyond yet - I designed that one myself. If a Robin ever shows up though, he'll probably look different.

I came up with an idea when the show was still going, but I think its time has passed.  It was a techless suit so Terry could hone his skills without falling back on the suit.  So Terry was also Robin.  I like your design and it fit so well I thought it was real.
