Batman Beyond (known as Batman of the Future in Europe, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, Russia and India) is an American animated television series created by The WB Television Network in collaboration with DC Comics as a continuation of the Batman legacy.

Batman Beyond began airing on January 10, 1999 and ended its run on December 18, 2001. With 52 episodes spanning three seasons and one direct-to-video movie under its belt, the series was then put on hold for the new Justice League animated series. However, there was a short-lived spin-off, The Zeta Project.

The series is set in the chronological future of the DC animated universe, although it was released before Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Static Shock. Some characters from the series appeared two years later in "Future Shock", an episode of Static Shock, and then again in "The Once and Future Thing," episodes of Justice League Unlimited. The character was revisited a final time in the JLU episode "Epilogue"', which tells much about the future of Batman.

Batman Beyond is said to exploit the darker side of many Batman projects, playing basically on such key elements as emotions, personal relations, fear of unknown and technological malfunctions. As such it was considerably darker then most other children's programs at the time. It is also the first Batman series to portray the hero as a teenager.

In the third season of Batman Beyond, a two-part story featuring the Justice League entitled "The Call" formed an early basis for Timm's next series, Justice League, which was in turn succeeded by Justice League Unlimited. The setting and characters of Batman Beyond were also briefly revived in 2004 for an episode of Static Shock in which Static is accidentally transported forty years into the future.

Justice League Unlimited revisited the world of Batman Beyond twice in 2005. The first time featured Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern transported 50 years into the future to stop a time-traveling villain with the help of the future Justice League Unlimited cast, including Terry McGinnis as Batman and a future Static. The second time occurred during the episode "Epilogue", where the true secret origin of the future Batman is learned in a story meant to be the de facto series finale for this Batman's story.
