In 1999, creators Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, and Alan Burnet propelled Gotham into the future with Batman Beyond. The series follows Terry McGinnis, a young man in 2039 Gotham who takes on the mantle of Batman with guidance from an elderly Bruce Wayne. The series is considered a cult classic and a fan favorite, offering a take on the characters that felt new, fresh, and interesting at the time. The sleek and sharp design of Terry's Batsuit quickly became iconic as a unique take on Batman. Though the animated series just ran for three seasons, the cult nature of its fanbase led to Terry's Batman being brought into DC Comics' titles with quite a few Batman Beyond titles cropping up over the years. Today, fans of this futuristic take on Gotham can bid on this crimson-drenched production cel from the animated series.
