Justice League Unlimited
First Aired: 2005
Sixty-five years in the future, the history of the Justice League is the key to Batman's darkest secret...and Terry McGinnis' final destiny. This episode served as a wrap-up for the entire 'Timm-verse', from BTAS-JLU.
Trivia: Epilogue came from a planned, but unproduced Batman Beyond movie. The movie was rejected due to the controversies concerning Return Of The Joker. The movie had Selina Kyle (not Amanda Waller) creating a clone of Batman (rather than using nano-engineered sperm). The two successful clones were Terry and another who would serve as the antagonist of the film. Selina's Batman would go as far as killing criminal from Batman Beyond including older ones such as The Riddler
Dwayne McDuffie on Waller’s cloning efforts: “Cut from the episode was a scene explaining that Waller did this many times (ala Boys from Brazil) in the hopes of producing one suitable Batman replacement. Girls would be ignored and left to grow up without interference. In families with a good male candidate, like Terry’s—any other siblings would be killed along with the parents. After Phantasm refused to kill Terry, Waller realized how far around the bend she had gone and gave up on the whole project. Terry meeting Bruce later and becoming Batman was indeed coincidence or, more charitably, fate.”
