The Killing Joke.

When the Batman Beyond series first aired on the WB network, I thought it was a joke. Batman was such a cool show and figure, that I assumed they would ruin Batman's legacy by having a "new" Batman set 40 years in the future. I was wrong because the Batman Beyond series not only stayed faithful to the Dark Knight's legacy, but extended it. A question that was raised early on in the series was, whatever happened to the Joker?

That question is answered in BATMAN BEYOND: RETURN OF THE JOKER. After an absence of forty years, the Joker returns to Gotham City to wreck havoc, create chaos, and dispense death. It is the elderly Bruce Wayne's nightmare. Enter the new Batman, but is he capable of dealing with Batman's arch nemisis and most terrifying foe?

Out of all the Batman movies; full length, feature films, made for television, etc.: this ranks among the best. The animation is above par and the storytelling is compelling. Younger children may find the movie frightening, but that's about it.
