We’ve waited six months, and it’s finally here: the climactic battle between Damian Wayne and Terry McGinnis in BATMAN BEYOND #11. On one side, there is the biological son of Batman who has taken up the role of Ra’s Al Ghul. On the other, there is the foster son of Bruce Wayne, who has taken up the mantle of the Batman. In this BATMAN BEYOND #11 exclusive preview, Bruce watches as his two children fight over his legacy.

It was a stroke of genius for Dan Jurgens to bring Ra’s Al Ghul into the BATMAN BEYOND continuity. He then delivered an incredibly satisfying twist when he revealed that Damian Wayne has taken over the League of Assassins after his grandfather’s demise. Now Damian wants to prove his superiority to Terry McGinnis, whom he labels “The Pretender.” Damian, of course, was trained by Batman and is now a warrior at the height of his abilities. However, Terry is using Batman’s prototype A.I. suit which limits all physical weaknesses and calculates the optimal way to win a fight. As a result, the battle pits Damian’s superior training against Terry’s superior technology. Who will win and prove himself the true son of Batman?

“At this point, the best I can hope for is that one survives the day. Both? No chance.” – Bruce Wayne

Furthermore, the most poignant thing about this issue is that most of it unfolds from Bruce’s perspective. It is tearing the old man apart to see two of his children fight to the death. “At this point, the best I can hope for is that one survives the day,” Bruce reflects. “Both? No chance.” I can’t wait to see whether Bruce can save his two sons and have a reconciliation with Damian. To find out the answers, we’re going to have to wait until August 23rd when BATMAN BEYOND #11 comes out!

    Isn’t Terry Batman’s son too or was that only in the DCAU?

      I don’t know what the case is in the DCAU but in this comic continuity Terry has no blood relation to Bruce. Thanks for the question though!
