Community Reviews

Excellent series on TV.

Adam West was awesomely bad.

Near perfect

This is the quitessential Batman.

Set in the future, an old a decrepit Bruce Wayne dons the cowl once again to rid his beloved Gotham City of the terrorist gang the Mutants!

He finds support in an unlikely place, with the teenage girl Grace Kelly standing at his side as the new Robin!

We also see the return of some of his most classic foes.

This, Watchmen, Blade Runner, and Back to the Future Part II form the epitome of the term 80s future

Dark Indeed

A look into the future of batman, where the spectre of nuclear war hangs over the U.S. and the public has grown sick of superheroes. Similar to Watchmen, which was also published in 1986.


batman is one of the best superheroes ever
