Batman Beyond 2.0
Bat Beyond 2.0 Chapter 38 is here! The final arc within the Batman Beyond Universe is here. This is a very sad realization for me. But when you come across “Alternating Currents” you have to go with the flow! This will be a slightly SPOILER FILLED Review!
Alternating Currents Part 2 of 4 “Pattern Opposition”
So this issue serves as a bit of setup, but it’s more action than story. Which is both a good and a bad thing about it. I’m really not thrilled with the direction of the title at this point. It really pains me to say that. This issue specifically fels like a “Forever Evil” copycat.
What Works: Davis believes he and Terry are the same, as far as wanting their Dads back. Umm… ok then, I do like the arguing between Bruce and Terry in this chapter. Then we have Babs breaking them up. I love some of Terry’s lines to Ghoul, those were great, but as I said this was more action than writing this issue.
What Doesn’t Work: Honestly this issue was mostly action, so there wasn’t much I found I disliked in the writing. As I said above though, this seems like a Forever Evil copycat-cop out as far as rewire using an electrical charge on Dick’s heart. I still do not like the way Higgins and Siegel are attempting to make Davis Dusk a sympathetic character. They set him like the cliched woah is me, but this kid killed his own damn father, and I’m sure hurt many others. I still can’t get over that part of the story.
What Works: EVERYTHING!!! Thony Slias is a genius artist when it comes to this title. I’m really gonna miss his Bat Beyond art.
What Doesn’t Work: NOTHING!!!! The art is great, the colors bright and shiny! I mean just lookat that image above with Terry coming in the window as Batman… Now that is awesome!!!
So Chapter 38 is here. We get an action packed issue this time. The writers aren’t pulling any punches. You should go get BATMAN BEYOND 2.0 Chapter 38!!!! Bring on Chapter 39, and I hope there is more story in it, plus we need to know how Dick lost his eye damnit!!!!! I just pray that the writer’s pay off on the quote Higgins had said recently, “The ultimate Terry McGinnis story” So far it’s been a VERY slow build. This is the second chapter in the last arc of the series! I’m really gonna miss this book. All within the Batman Beyond Universe. You can find it on the DC Comics App or Comixology or wherever you get your digital comics.
