Sons of the Bat... Part 5 (of 5) by jasonhohoho Sons of the Bat... Part 5 (of 5) by jasonhohoho
Also posted on my sketchblog: [link]

Up next is Terry McGinnis, AKA... Batman??


  • Age: Early 20's

  • With Bruce Wayne comatose and in critical condition after a battle with a coalition of Batman's greatest rivals, Gotham is in need of a Batman. Terry McGinnis, having served as Robin to Bruce's Batman for a few years, thinks he's the least likely candidate for the job. However, Dick, Jason, Tim, and Damien all have unique roles to play as their current alter egos, and they urge Terry to take up the mantle. It was possible that they would have come to this consensus regardless, but "the Robins" don't realize that Tim subtly nudged them towards this decision because he was the only one aware that Terry is actually Bruce's son. With no knowledge of his true heritage, Terry agrees, knowing that he will be backed by the four men who have become a second family to him.

  • This isn't a redesign at all! The only thing I changed was the color of the belt! To be honest, I wasn't always crazy about the Batman Beyond costume, particularly the use of red. But it grew on me over time, and now I think the red is very appropriate for Terry's hotheaded youthfulness. By making the belt yellow, I hoped to tie the colors of Terry's costume to Damien's costume. A subtle indication that the two have more in common than they realize.

  • The wing technology (shown in retracted position) was already being field tested by Nightwing, but the suit itself is a brand new piece of experimental technology.

  • His retractable claws are hard light constructs.



Well, that was a fun series of designs to draw! I have a lot more ideas for this imagined alternate continuity. I realized yesterday that I actually need to add two more Sons of the Bat. Of course I fully intend to (eventually) follow this series with Daughters of the Bat (there are at least 6 or 7 to draw). Plus there are several characters who don't quite fit either category...

And why didn't you like Terry's red bat?

I don't care for red as a "Batman" color--but once I accepted that Terry has a totally different personality from Bruce, the red made sense.

This is a neat concept, but I understand that Matt McGinnis, Terry's younger brother, also turned out to be Bruce's son? Or am I wrong? I didn't follow Batman Beyond all that closely, because number one I wasn't taken with the idea (I didn't even like Dick as Batman in the comics...), and we had to save money for important things like electricity, and so TV was one of the things that had to give.

i believe you are correct--theoretically, a slightly more grown up matt mcginnis will be one of the follow up pieces. :D

thank you very much, man! if i got you and your brother thinking about it, that means i did my job as an artist! :D

i'll give you a few hints...

- the other 2 sons are both literally bruce wayne's sons. one is a pre-crisis character.
- i believe you are forgetting 1 batgirl...
- you're correct that catwoman and talia won't be in the daughters series (but i would like to draw them as well)
- you pretty much guessed it with the rest of the daughters... carrie kelly is the one i really want to draw! keep that one between you and me. :D but i forgot about misfit! i'll have to add her, though she might not end up in the miscellaneous category...
